Re: Jim Bullock passed away from Covid

Great guy. I really enjoyed the phone conversations we had although we never met in person. Just this morning I was thinking about calling him. He will be missed.

Re: Downshifting problem

Double clutching, down shifting, spark control, hand signals and ahooga horn is what makes driving a Model A fun. Most muscle car guys just don't get it.

Re: Simmons head

Why do you day much better value? They seem to be in the same ballpark to me. One is updraft and the other is downdraft. $300 difference doesn't seem that far apart on a $2500 purchase.

Re: Example plug wires for Winfield head

Looks neat! The Brillman Company sells the braided high tension wire and terminals. You could make a coil wire to match.

Re: Simmons head

Yep.....I bought that Simmons head, intake and carburetor in Luray. No where near the price that they are asking for this one. The head I bought is painted green and the intake is painted black. ...

Re: Swap meet etiquette / Luray

The cars are in there pretty tight. I would have loved to been able to walk around the individual cars especially the curved dash Olds and the Ford Model "N".

Re: Swap meet etiquette / Luray

That was a great swap meet. I had good time, made a few purchases, got the tee-shirt. I had no problem getting gas once I got out of eastern NC. I got a room just down the road from the meet. Took...

Re: Batt. Supercharger

Would the extra length of the manifold have an effect? Sort of the same theory of a high rise manifold. I don't see any notable performance from an original manifold.

Re: Batt. Supercharger

I am concerned about the vanes of the inner cone breaking of and being sucked into the valves and cylinders. They look like they are made from a thin sheet of brass.

Re: Batt. Supercharger

Yep...That's about it. Just an adornment. The inner cone might make a difference. I suppose one could be fabricated. I doubt it would live up to the claims in the advertisement.

Re: Batt. Supercharger

Like JW Hash mentioned. I am running a Bat Supercharger on my 28 Roadster without the inner cone. I tried to post an image but for some reason it won't let me select a file from my computer.

Re: Picture perfect

Re: Model A as a mobile studio

I agree with Marty. What a waste of time just to get someone's opinion of a taco. It's typical for this day and time.

Re: Will I fit in a Roadster??

I'm 6'1" 230 lbs with a 38"hamburger belly. You'll learn the trick to get in and out of it. It would be a problem if I had side mounted spares. Like Jim said, avoid pulling on the steering wheel...

It is interesting to see the numbers crunched. I would like to see it again in years to come to see how it changes.

Re: OK! Let's get personal!

I'm 59 years old.

It looks like folks in their 70's are the majority.
