I'd like to reply to topics but my page times out before I can post even though I'm logged in. It says refresh or log in. I can't find 'refresh'. I then log in again and my reply I had just written has disappeared. Please help as this has happened to my last 2 replies.
Thanks

Howdy y'all, I am new to this great forum and appreciate all of the good info I've read in here the last few days! I recently bought a barn fresh 1930 model A and not sure at this point what my plan is for it. It has been sitting for the last 30 years and the motor hasn't been started in about 20 years. I'd like to see if I can get it running at some point. It has the original motor in it and mostly all there, but rough in the usual places. My brother in-law wants me to hotrod it, but I'm not sure how much money I want to put in it. I think I'm going to just tinker with it and get it running as is for now.
I will be trying to buy as many original parts as possible when I can find them. Some of the things I know it needs to get running, 6 volt battery, radiator or lots of stop leak..lol and an ignition switch and the housing for the fuel sediment bowl is cracked. I'm sure I'll find some more problems along the way. It has the zenith carb and that might need some attention too? Ok, thanks ahead of time for all the info you guys share in here. I will do my best to search the posts for answers to my questions when possible.

Thanks for having this forum Ryan. I am new here also. I recently purchased a 1929 Model A Fordor. My Grandson and his Father are going to restore it. I think its going to be a great project and a wonderful opportunity for a Father and his son to bond and make something beautiful out of this old gal....

Hello all- I just purchased my first model A roadster, and have really been enjoying it. Still figuring out all of the little aspects to keep it running smoothly. Alot of my questions have been answered searching thru threads, but I am sure I will have alot more. I didn't see a intro thread so I thought I would put it here. -Dave

Thumbs up Re: Welcome To The New Ford Barn!

Hi everyone, this is my new Model A and my first (31 Town Sedan-Briggs). This looks like a fun place to hang out and make friends. You all have some nice cars.

Thanks Skibb, a few photo's on the way. I'm a painter so I will be updating the paint someday. It's ok now but I like something smoother.

hello I'm " a_crazy" what I mean to say is I'm getting to like the model A fords. so I thought my username of "a_crazy" would be kinda catchy. I like that you can fix an A with a few simple hand tools. no computer or OBD systems to worry about. Being from New England I understand that those tall narrow tires do well in the snow,is this right? It also appears that the A is easy to work on and that most components are easily accessible. I would like to find folks that I can hang out with and learn about these nifty automobiles. I can't afford my own yet, I hope that I will be able to some day. Until then I can try to learn. I am curious what it's like to be behind the steering wheel, what the traction is like, what is it like to drive an A?

New England is a big place, can you narrow it down a bit.

Hej Hej!

Good morning everybody.

My Webside is >>> www.hotchkiss.eu

With my Vintage Cars
I used to travel in Wales, the Middlands, Ireland, Scottland, the Faroer Islands, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Lappland,
starting from Strasbourg, Alsace, France, the town of the European Parliament.

Now I have a normal Phaëton from 1928, big block, and she will be once my new travelcar, but only in 2015, or 2016, because I am travelling in Lappland or the Lofoten Islands (higher than Alaska) since 3 summers with my bicycle and my recumbent trike.

I am 60, and I made 350.000 Km (yes!) in 31 years with my vintage cars in my youngest years.
But I thought in 2011 that it is time to become young and not to travel like a potatoebag anymore.

I am registrated in the swedish Ford-A Club, "Svenska Afordarna", but I am french and speaking french, german, english and swedish.

Ha det så bra
Hälsningar

Thomas Rudolf,
Strasbourg, Alsace, France

ps: I am looking for the rear tail of a tonneau cover or a complete one.
Is there a refabrication for this item?
