Live and learn! That's new to me, and a great looking rarity. Thanks for the history lesson.

Here is a before and after of my 1930 Town Sedan...the first picture was taken around 1991 when the previous owner bought the car. The bottom picture was taken in 2009.

here are my picks. Original restoration started in 1972. I have owned for 5 years and just complete the project, but there is a vibration when the engine is running. I think it is the flywheel. because i put a crankshaft with the balancing weights.

With all the flywheels I do we checked a couple before they were cut and you would not believe how out of balance they were. We also do the cranks with flyweights and sometimes we have to weld weight to them to balance the crank because of balance problems.

If the vibration is at a standstill I would check the flywheel first or the crank second. If it vibrates when moving I would check the universal joint.

This is my coupe when I bought it home. Restoration was completed in 1985 and I have been having fun in it ever since!

This feels like a repeat. I have these same photos in "Post A Picture Of your "A"." THIS is where they belong !
The first photo is a year after I bought it, in 1962.
The second is while it was under restoration. I drove it a lot while restoring it.
The third is about six years later. The photo is a photo of a photo, so the colors are not rich enough, but you get the idea.

Here's me oiling my car up beside the house getting ready for a run back to college--room mate and mother standing by. circa 1962

Second photo is me on sentimental journey back to same house last weekend during Michigan Model A Roundup. First time my Ford had been back to the old neighborhood in about 48 years.

I have not touched it in 2 years. We are real busy at work and I haven't been home. Good thing is that it is not going anywhere.
