Default Intro and a Newbe to Model A

Hi all, I am very excited about my recent purchase and am waiting for delivery. I am the new owner of a 28 Roadster. I've never had anything older than a 37 Plymouth Business coupe so this will be a learning experience. There are two items that are not original, one is a Mitchel 3 speed synchronized transmission and the other is a 6 volt alternator. The car has just gone through a nut and bolt restoration an I intend on driving it as much as I can. I look forward to learning and participating whenever I can. I am happy to be a part of this forum.

Welcome to the Barn......in case you're unaware, there was no such thing back in 1928 called texting while driving but.....a lot of Model A drivers read Grit while driving. When your ready for my Ford Barn new person discount subscription....you let me know now....hear!!!!

Welcome aboard caperss! Sounds like Santa is bringing you a great present this year! Definitely join a local club. There is nothing more fun than driving down the road with another 6 or 8 Model A's! Drive it often, enjoy it and have a very Merry Christmas!
