1922 Indian Scout and books associated with the marque. Next project is to build a trailer using the 21in A rims that I can tow behind the Tudor. Anyone got some pictures of what trailers looked like in the late 20's and early 30's".

Well...being raised in an auto salvage yard and body shop formed me into a life long car builder...but only as a hobby...not my career. I was a private pilot for 25 years, accomplished construction builder of homes and shops . I enjoy woodworking and at one time built and sold 100's of unique birdhouses (wrens only). I also enjoy flying RC airplanes and choppers. Always had auto shop nearby. Oddly enough my career was in law enforcement and corrections....from a beat cop while attending college in 1972 after military to the Director of Correctional Services for 28 years...retiring from same in 2006 at age 57 to play with my toys. I am now enjoying my A and T restoration. Quite a leap from 500hp to 20 and 40!

In no particular order. My interests are: Model A rod bangers, Sportfishing off of the SoCal coast. I used to run a passenger carrying sport boat, Vintage 356 Porsche which I still have one, Ceramics, I have an MFA in ceramics and still like to spin a pot or two. My last hobby is steam locomotives, 12" to the foot scale. I am the mechanical officer on a 1942 mainline Santa fe Steam locomotive of the 4-8-4 wheel arrangement. www.sbrhs.org. I am looking for another hobby to fill in my free time. Whoops, forgot my 16 cat buddies. No dogs right now.

I enjoy collecting antique pocket watches and antique pistols. But like my antique cars, I can only afford the cheap versions. Thats my hobbies.
My interests are pretty women, but at my age, its a one way street..

Model A's for three generations in my family.

  • Driving and working on my Model A is my fun hobby.
  • Flying my high performance aerobatic RV7 is my exciting hobby.
  • Rebuilding our 1934 farm house is my expensive hobby.
  • Running our mini-ranch is my responsible hobby.
The Model A is a regular at the feed store.



Kids are grown, so it is me, my wife and our Australian Shepherds.


I love it all, every day.

Besides owning a 1929 AA CCPU I am totally restoring the truck. My other hobby is Drawing parts of the truck that I have not been able to find drawing of. A to find out if parts are able to be repop in better quaity than the parts that are being made.

I have a couple single engine airplanes and enjoy driving my '29 tudor to the airport to get a different view of life. Also ride a Harley and a Corvette convertible. Toy box is just about full!
