August 2, 1928 (88 YOA). My first Model A was a 1928 Roadster purchased from a neighbor in Modesto, CA in 1941, paid $50.00 for it. Painted it Powder Blue and drove it until 1944 when Cars were still hard to get, the man paid me $500.00 for it. Went in the Navy in February 1946. Did not own another A until 1961 when I bought a 1931 Deluxe Coupe while living in Sacramento, CA , after Restoration joined the Capitol A's and MAFCA in 1962.

August 1945. Got my first A, a 1931 Sport Coupe, in 1961. There has not been a day of my life since then that I haven't owned an A. Current project is an Early 1930 AA Open Cab Express.

Love this thread, shows how many whippersnappers are on here, even down to 1928 and then there have a been a couple trying to do some bullshitting too.

My birth year is, I think, 1900. It was given to me when I went to enlist. I never ever asked Ma what year I was born in, I just asked her how old I was. I was able to determine 1900 because, I had to leave home rather abruptly, no different from my absence from the Barn. See, there were two farmers that each had daughters and shotguns and I knew that I either had to get out of Texas or join the Army. I joined the Army instead and found myself a bit later with Gen Jack riding across the Rio Grande on a Punitive Action against Poncho Villa for his raid into New Mexico. We crossed the Rio in 1916 and I was 16 at the time and I counted back and ended up at 1900.
Here's a photo of me and Gen Jack crossing the Rio Grande.....I'm on the left and front.


It was a learning experience for me venturing into Mexico, the most important thing I found out was, Mexican fathers didn't carry shotguns, they carried machetes!!!! I'm glad the Great War came along when it did, we were recalled and Gen Jack and myself headed to France.

Now to get to the reason I departed when I did. I received a warning notice for recall from our new CinC and I immediately started preparing my gear (kit) in the british Army for my departure sometime in May and I'm rejoining my regiment and we're heading back to the......Mexican border on patrol. Got my old saddle down from the attic, dug out my ole uniform, sewed up some moth holes and put them in the cleaners. I found out that a luggage rack on a Model A Ford is not always a luggage rack but more a baggage and saddle rack too.



Ed, the Elder....................
In your photo of "Black Jack", over his right shoulder, that looks like my Grandfather. He was with you fellas from Columbus into Mexico, then too
France. Black hawk division? He was part of the 1st. Illinois, Company "B".
Thanks for you photo..that's just great.
Dudley

btw.....Hey....how old are you???

If he's still this side of the soil, I'm sure he'd like to re-live old memories like I do..........

Now.....coincidence or small world, whichever. My grandfather was in the 1st Illinois in the Great War also. He was Quartermaster of his company but I don't know what company. I could find out though.

Do you know what unit he was in during the Punitive Expedition?

1971, in Dallas, Texas. Have since then lived in Pennsylvania, France, England, Finland, California, and now Denmark & Finland.

Very nice to see the wide range of ages. Makes me think the idea 'Model A folks are on their way out' is pure-myth.
