Hi Bill and Paul,

Many of us Model A owners have a few neighbors who think we came from an entirely different Planet because we maintain and drive 80+ year old cars.

However, when we see wonderful photos of several Model A's like this, we are reminded that it is our very odd neighbors who are really the ones who came from an entirely different Planet.

Thanks for offering these most sincere encouraging comments!

I sent MAFCA 3 photos of that show, so perhaps another will be posted some time.

Several years ago I hosted a birthday party for my tudor when it was 80 years old. 2 more years and I will have a party for 90.

Hi Bill,

Sounds so very interesting.

With those attending the last 80 year old party, did they all come from the same Planet?

Belltown was a great show, my grandpa and i were there with his cabriolet (68C). Bill, we saw you sitting by your car, we were going to say hello but you were busy talking amongst friends. Hope to see everyone there again next year!

Yes, and they all love old cars. Unfortunatly, some are now dead, but the ones still alive will hopefully be at the next party January 10, 2019.

You should have stopped. Interupting chatter of friends is always welcome by more friends.
I left early as I had to be back to take care of my girlfriend who is recovering from knee replacement.
I nailed my 51 year plaque to my collection board, where many more Belltown plaques are nailed, back to the very first one in 1967.

Kudos to MAFCA for doing the "CAR of THE DAY" thing!
My Avatar is a pic of Vermin, when he was featured, Minerva was shown previously.
I'm GLAD Flamingo counted them, I LOST count????
