I found these two pics last night through the Kansas historical society archives...





They were dated December 13th 1927

Also this one showing the 20,000,000 Ford.



Note the movie camera in the Deluxe Phaeton and the Blind Back s/w right behind it.

I hunt for pictures on the internet all the time and I've gathered thousands of images featuring Model A's and AA's and that sort of stuff.

Sometimes I get lucky and the vehicle is the subject of the picture, prominently featured front and center to the camera. Someone's new pride and joy so important of a moment that it had to be captured forever.

But most times our A's are just another part of the scenery, the background of more important or impressive moments in time. It becomes a sort of child's hidden picture search when looking at broader topic images.

So, that being said, here are a number of images I like that have A's in them by coincidence. See if you can find the A's.










Ester Eddie over on the HAMB had posted these last two from a pack of photographs he saved from being thrown away.

WTSHNN, those are great pics of the KC dealership!
I really don't know that much but, that tall cab fordor/townsedan might be a coach built Taxi. Not to mention the uniform. lol
All its doors are long and they have 3 hinges and I’ve read where that was one of the differences of the taxi body. However that might just be relevant to the Ford (Briggs/Murray) body's..... All the standard Ford Taxi's I've seen didn't have such high windows or long doors.

That wishbone might be a tow-bar, made from a wishbone.

I found the Model A prices on the wall in post 222 interesting.
I did not realise there was such a large variation in prices.
Thanks for the pics. I always enjoy looking at them.

Notice; this car doesn't have whitewalls...but the guy in the picture does!



Nice standard coupe...


A Sport Coupe in the snow...


Show this one to your wife; she'll think its adorable.


Out of thousands of images of Model A's that I have found this is the ONLY one I have ever found with a stone guard.


'29 Phaeton


More non-car whitewalls in front of a Tudor


A proud female service member in front of a coupe


I would welcome anyone recreating this image on their Model A to post it here.


Anybody care to comment whether or not this is a Model A based speedster?


Tudor in Traffic


Another Tudor


Kind of what it is all about
