My little blue coupe is "Moonpie". It seems to fit her.

My granddad carried Moonpies in his dinner bucket to the coal mines everyday.

I named this one sweet Caroline after the Neil Diamond song. The words seemed to fit , Sweet Caroline ... good times never seemed so good...Who'd have believed you'd come around. I had wanted a roadster like her since I was in my teens. I had just about given up on finding one that I could afford. Thanks to Mark Sullivan and eBay it happened. She was rough when I got her and nobody else wanted her . With a lot of work and a generous sprinkling of the green stuff it finally came to pass !!!!!!!Here she is with my grand daughter sitting in her.

Here is a 29 strip down model A that I've had since I was 13 years old . I'm explaining the controlls to my grand daughter Bailey here just before I let her drive it for the first time. The motor number indicates that its a september 29. I can't find a frame date but all of the parts look purdy much correct for that date of car. Its still got all of the running gear and engine that came with it when I got it in the spring of 1960. I just named it my september 29.

Yo Brother, Cali-phone-ya is a long ways to drive the truck with no windows . Like an old saying , Cali-phone-Ya would be like slam to hale and plum nilly from here if I had to drive that one. It would be a shame to put a chev-ah-lay motor in it after all these years. It ain't got a numbers matching motor but the motor thats in it has been there since I bought it from Cap Hudson in 1967 for thirty dollars. When I got it it didn't have the custom body , it was jist a strip down and me and Deb pulled it home with a chain. I spect I better jist keep it. Yer brother Purdy.

4 pages and I was wondering if anybody else named their Model A as I did. I named my 30 deluxe coupe Clara after Henry Ford's wife, You know the Model A was referred to as Henry's lady!

They even wrote a song about it (Henry's Made a Lady out of Lizzie):

http://www.autolife.umd.umich.edu/De..._MadeaLady.htm

You can listen to it here:

Our Model A pickup is Blackie, in keeping with other vehicles named Brownie, Red, Silver, Old Blue and Otto (how'd he get in there?).

Elmer I had a favorite Uncle Elmer who could be very obstinate at times, and my A during a three year restoration was very obstinate at times.

"Annie" - our '30 Deluxe Coupe is named after the original owner Mrs. Annie L. Bayless.

Annie just turned 65,000 original miles while rolling around the back roads of Northern California's wine country last week.

"A good time was had by all!"
