Re: Grandfather’s Day

You and I are running around in the same circles. We were at the Moonshine Festival Friday and Mike’s yesterday. Great folks.

I put a set of American Classic radials on my ‘29 Tudor 6000 miles (14 months) ago. They still look new and the car drives really well. Yes, it’s a driver

Re: Creating a list for what to do to winterize your A

Re: coolant level concern

I ran the tubing between the radiator and the shell. I put an isolation valve in case the tube should leak. It’s been there for about a year with no problems. I open the valve to check the level...

Re: Looking for opinion on replacement radiator

Good choice. I put a new Brassworks in my ‘29. It had a leak in the upper tank when it was brand new.

Arrow Re: Model A emergency kit.
