Default I did the right thing!

Several years ago I gave my daughter and her husband my 30 roadster PU with no strings attached. Yes I had some fears but that was ok. Most of my cars came from my dad or grandfather. Well today I get a text just to let me know it was warm enough to get the truck out and my son in law had a great "A" day driving several miles without problems. I love getting those texts! Son has cleaned out his garage and said he would like to store the 31 roadster for me. I love my family!

Model A's seem to bring families closer. My Dad got an A for me when I was fourteen. That '28 Sedan made a huge positive impact on my the young life. Thanks Dad!

That is exactly the kind of thing that keeps the love of A's going. Your son-in-law will most likely follow your example and pass it down to another family member. My grandpa bought our A in 1953, pasted it to my dad, who I am working with right now to restore it. He is passing it to me and I hope that one of my boys shows an interest so I can past it to one of them and know they will love it and keep it going.
