Default Ride 'Em Cowboy

Saw this Abbot and Costello movie last night, Costello driving a Model A roadster with what looked like 16" wheels, being chased by indians and then a train, going forwards and then backwards. They sure punished that A. It was a fun watch.

I guess back then they were cheap and plentiful. Sacrifice one for a movie and it's no big deal.... Thanks for sharing!

Its a part of the cars history,when you could buy one for 5 bucks,run it on penny a quart drain oil and beat it like a rented mule.My father and two cohorts bought a 31 coupe for 10 bucks and drove it from Long Island NY to Miami..1946. they left it down there when it died..cheap robust dependable,easy to fix
