If anyone has pictures they'd like to post but might not have the hang of it, send me a PM (private message) and I'll either post them for you, or assist if you want to post them yourself.

I posted some of the family shoebox car photos at the group site, but they did not go into a separate thread. Oops!

Attached is Dad and his buddy on the "T", September 1927

Here's one from my collection of old car photos. I was told it's a 1916 Model "T." Picture was supposedly taken near Baltimore, MD.

No for nothing but if you post the pics on the social group then why here? And if you post them here then why there?

But this one's hard to beat for period feeling. I love it when "A's" provide the backdrop. (West Memphis, Arkansas, 1935.)

Interesting question....perhaps as a teaser to get you to the social group? I have to admit these old photographs are enjoyable to see. JMHO.

Points taken guys, appreciate it. When I started posting I wasn't sure which'd be best; but posting on the forums gets more viewability than in the social group. No excuses, it's illogical to post on both places.

I'll post them in the appropriate forums (I'll try & get 'em right ) and hope others will too. I will continue to post interesting stories & videos on the social site and if I or anyone else wants to post crossover stuff on the social site (multiple years that might not fit in just one forum) that would work too.

Thanks for the input - there's some great photos out there, courtesy of a lot of contributors.

If you click on the thumbnails, they will enlarge. To post them large size like I do you'll have to download them on a website that hosts pics like photobucket or picasa.

Nice photo!

Nice setting, in Quebec (despite the Chevy).

One thing I love about the old pictures is that you get to see what people did to their cars back then. Posts #48 and #57 are great examples. The balloon tires are great-I am assuming they are tractor tires and they painted them white!
The model a that is in the fore ground has some great brakes! Those are defenitaly not Ford brake drums!

It looks like a Ford but the bonnet is toooo long and it has some sort of artillery wheels {I think}. It has doors instead of louvres on the bonnet.
I try and ID all the cars in the pics. The Fords are easy but some cars are difficult......

A picture from long ago, in the area close to where I grew up - southern lower Michigan. The car is probably long gone but the building is still there:

Tough call, but my money's on grandma and grandpa, with dad snapping the picture while mom's in the station dickering for candy, tobacco, tubes and Cokes. Far cry from "Cracker Barrel" on the Interstate, eh? We'll never know, but we can acknowledge tough times when we see 'em.

I study a lot of 1930's images of the "common man." Looking into the eyes of the young woman and the three young girls in the second and third images of my post 114, I can only hope that their "A's" carried them safely to their new lives, and that they prospered.

Yep. All those folks could say "at least we're not in a Chevy." Seriously, though, I suspect that those little "A's" (faded paint, worn pinstripes, mismatched tires, shot upholstery and all) got their owners through more times than not.

"HOLLAND FOR SENATOR" is in good company. FDR owned and/or drove a number of "A's," as did Averell Harriman and David and Nelson Rockeller. (Actually, the Rockefellers owned the same Deluxe Phaeton... I lack that image, but here are the others.)

I like this image because my Dad was a police officer in the early 30's.

What are they doing with that coupe top? Whatever it is, it's taken a while; it looks like grass has grown up behind the wheels since the "A" was parked. Typical Model "A" project

Here's one for all who complain about legroom in their "A's" How much seat adjustment is there in a Sport Coupe?



In a similar vein, Italian hreavyweight boxer Primo Carnera a/k/a "The Ambling Alp" a/k/a in the sporting press "the giant Italian pugilist" drove an "A." I have an image of him and his car somewhere; I'll post as soon as I can find it.

"Short" story, indeed. Thanks, Vince. That's fascinating.

I managed to find my other "giant" image. I may be wrong, but I suspect that it's from Ford's "Dealer and Service Field" publication.

The model a that is in the fore ground has some great brakes! Those are defenitaly not Ford brake drums!

The brakes in #57 are Ford AA 1930 or 31.

I've oftened wondered why all the A's seemed so worn out and dirty even when near new. While looking at all these great pictures it dawned on me, it was the roads. I used to live in Mexico up to a few years ago and even new vehicles looked old and worn out because of the bad roads and even more because of how dirty the roads are. I used to carry water with me to wash my headlights off so I could see.

Right now, our cars in New England look "worn out and dirty" after about ten miles. Count your blessings, "South Florida"

On the other hand, look how sharp Richard's dad's phaeton looked after 20 years!

Thanks but much of the credit for many of the great old photos should also go to some of the others who actually may have posted them on other websites. I attempted to sort them and post within each group here on FB.

Thanks to T-Head and twin6, who have posted many, many great photos and some stories, along with many other members either here on the FB or over on the HAMB. Based on what I've seen, their photo archives are awesome!

Thanks again to all who have contributed to this and other old car sites for sharing these historical archives for all to enjoy!

NEGATIVE FOLKS ATTN,
I'm amazed at all these GREAT PICS!! Thanks everyone who posted.
Why do some folks get so critical of Model A altering or accessorizing or modifying?? It's THE AMERICAN WAY. Folks have always been doing it!! Just be proud they chose a Model A to do it to. Bill Williamson

Here's a few more from LOC; the caption said "new Fords" so I'm guessing they're 1928s?:

A few more A's, Library of Congress said something like small town in Vermont. I think the pics were taken in the late 30s:

Kids!
These wartime shots of some kids with their Ford. I wonder what they might've paid for that car back in - according to the Library of Congress - 1942?

Looks like a 1929. Not to be confused with an Early 1930.

Picture one is of my mother leaning on my dads '29 when they were dating.
My dad liked to "tweak" his cars and I think the rear bow on the top may have been shortened. Picture two is of one of those other cars (1928???). The third is of my grandfathers center door T. the note on the back says "picnic - 1923. Jack went of the road and ruined the pies". My grandfather took a drink now and then. Norm

Picture one, My brother, aunt, cousin and I in the beach car. The floor boards were missing and you could watch the road pass underfoot. It was four blocks to the beach and we had to carry water for the radiator to make it. Picture two. Dad and his '32. Are those wheels stock?? Picture three. Grandad showing the flood of the Nahalem river, Mist, Oregon. Norm

Here are a few I've gathered from the "Vintage Shots of Days Gone By" thread over on the HAMB.

If you have a lot of time to fill, check out that thread. Over 45,000 replies and millions of views.

These photos were taken in 1931. Looks like these guys were pushing the limits.

1938 Douglas GA. I'm thinking that's a '28 A, but not sure. Can anyone identify it?

This popped up on H.A.M.B. and I like it because I have never seen it before and it also shows that era police cars weren't painted up like saddle shoes in a three ring circus.

Picture is identified as being 1932 Louisville KY. Interesting is that the first four cars are S/W fordors, the second row appears to be Coupes and the rest of the cars seem to be a mix of different body styles.

edited to add:
The building in the background looked familiar to me for some reason so I went back and dug through my old issues of the Model A News and sure enough, on the back cover of the September/October 2001 issue is a picture of the same District Station and four '28 Roadsters out front.

1938 Granville WV - what year is that drop-top? I'll guess a '29?

Caption says Detroit 1942 war scrap drive; I'm guessing the truck is a '31? (pic is a bit fuzzy)
