I really don't like Model As at all, but I certainly respect the effort it takes to bring one back to life. Nice job!

Need more pictures. Looks nice.

I do like Model A’s, even ones that have been rodded. Is that a good word? Enjoy.

Good looking roadster.!


We all benefit from the expertise that the Barn Forum offers. Often times just to look at a part, or read of a procedure in assembly or process, may be the bit of information one of us has been searching for.. and can be the difference in failure or success of our project. Our open communication and sharing is a huge ingredient in the longevity of our hobby.! JMO.. kb

badpuppy, bad boy. quote you below
I really don't like Model As at all
I do like Model A's but before they are murdered.
Why don't you use a Chrysler or something that doesn't matter.

It was obvious to me early on that I was going to have to learn to fix them myself if I was going to keep my model A .
