For the purposes of this discussion about a Model A ....

I just dropped off a nice 1931 Model A Special earlier today
just outside Nashville, TN.

After unloading - it started just fine.

Then - when the it came time to pick up minutes later - the starter went out.

We bump started it & I drove it to their home & backed it in the garage.

Model As can have more things go wrong than Model Ts.

Depending on the problem - it can be more challenging to repair.

If I was buying a Model A 1400 miles from where I lived - I would go after it myself with an enclosed trailer or hire someone I could talk to directly that drives the truck pulling the trailer my car was in.

I guess it is best to go out to lunch and not out to dinner or you could be on the menu! I hope this clears things up, Ed
Ah so, that makes sense. I think.
