Sitting. Eating. Staring blankly at walls.

In reality this is just a hobby for me. I am a fourwheeler. My Jeep was in a couple mags this year. In fact just grabbed a JP mag off the newsstand this morning and there it was again. Can't wait to get my 28 rpu on the road though.

Right now most of my hobbies are taking a back seat to raising two girls (5 and 2) and peparing for their newest sibling to be born early next year. Plus, since my A's my commute vehicle, maintaining it takes up a good bit of time and isn't optional.

But in my limited spare time, I collect Edison cylinder records and players and Z scale trains, though I don't have the trains set up at the moment. My MAME cabinet (a very fun, kind of geeky project where you build an arcade cabinet that can play a lot of classic video games) and electo-mechanical pinball machines are other hobbies.

is this a great hobby or what? our common interest in Model As overcomes the deficiency of you being on the wrong side in the War of Northern Agression.......

i have recently gotten a 100 year old wooden fridge in great shape . then i found two pinball machines one from 1969 the other from 1982 both work. only needed some minor fixing. then i found in someones garbage a 1982 Popeye upright video game . works great. but you still can't beat playing with a Flathead.

In my defense i have made some useful posts. Not many though. And those are things i do when not attempting to repair my car. Or going to a boring job that will probably be replaced by a machine soon.
(By the way spam is where you try to get people to buy things. Not my thing, i hate that)

I have been fortunate to have been involved in just about everything with racing or modified engines...You name it, I have done it.
LSR (land speed racing) has been at the forefront most of the time..Although I have been pretty much a spectator since 1956, I joined a team last year that is fielding 3 cars this year.
I also do hound hunting, bass fishing, fast draw shooting, photography,
ham radio, partying, maintaining a tourist railroad's radios and toodling down back country roads in my hot rod at 20 mph so I can see the nostalgia..

My other hobbies are flint knapping, gardening, pizza and bread making, ice skating and ham radio (although currently inactive) among other things. Too many irons in the fire sometimes !

I started out almost 30 years ago with a 1929 Pontiac in pieces and soon found a 1925 Model T Speedster that was done. I sold the Pontiac and bought the T. A couple of years later I found a 1930 Coupe and had to have it. I sold the T and bought the A Coupe. I also started collecting and restoring old Victrolas and radios. Here I am all these years later and I still have the Coupe and a nice 1930 Town Sedan. I had and sold a nice 1931 Deluxe Tudor also. I have also amassed a large collection of old phonographs. My ultimate dream is to build a C-Cab style Model A panel delivery and logo it with the RCA Nipper and phonograph. I am still searching for the body plans. UPS used this body style in the past but I haven't had any luck with them finding out about the body plans. If anyone else has any old wind-up outside horn style phonographs or parts available, please contact me with a private message. Thanks!!!!

I have a 1926 Gilbert&Barker gas pump and some scale model cars, most are Fords naturally. I also have a J3 cub RC model that needs restoration (a good winter project).
