31 S/W Town Sedan since 1986 , 28 Special Coupe since 1993. Both still sitting in the garage. No space and not enough time work on them. The pics of them in my album.

Just amazed at those of you that have had the you Model A for decades and some a half century -- as for me just 8 months.. I waited about 40 years for mine.

BTW the reason it took so long to build the huckster from the pile of "junk" was that we had to raise 11 kids and run a business for 20 years.

I bought my first Ford Model A ( a Nov. 1927 TuDoor Sedan ) in 1964. Sold it a year later and bought my present car in 1965, a December 1928 Phaeton. So I guess that is about 50 years ago. Ouch ! My other Model A ( late '31 Dlx Coupe) I bought about three years ago, to replace my '30 Standard Coupe, which I drove for about 35 years.
