Re: Diesel Conversion

I saw a car at Reningers a few years ago (perhaps the owner is on here) that was converted to all electric. I thought that one was pretty interesting as well.

Re: Fire Truck Caught on Fire

Yikes, hope it wasnt too bad.
I once did a home repair to the local fire chiefs house, his bathroom caught on fire from an unattended candle!

Re: NOS paint thickness

Would be nice to see some original paint examples. I would imagine they put on just what was needed. And yes, most aspects of a car are over restored today. In defense, its what people expect though....

Re: Insurance policy w/o liability?

I dont see where actual cost of parts to labor is relevant to insurance cost/value on an agreed value policy. My experience with Grundy is, I told the amount I wanted, sent them the required pics of...

Re: Insurance policy w/o liability?

I agree with you not wanting to double pay, but like the previous answers I dont think that full coverage with a specialty carrier is all that expensive. The one thing you may want to double check on...

Re: new to the model a/forum

Could always tie the spare to the radiator!

Welcome, great looking truck. My first 'car' was a 65 F100.

Re: A working Sedan Delivery

I bet the tooling on the side wall weighs more than 400lb!
I suppose they could have rigged up power somehow to pull off of the customers shop whilst making a sales call. Even if it was wired...

Re: 68C and A400

Hydroplating at one time was used quite extensively in the custom motocycle/chopper industry when those things were hot. I have seen wheel rims, gas tanks, fenders, helmets, pretty much anything that...

Re: Crazy temp gauge idea

Blown Gasket, I am the opposite (though a mere youngster at 57). I try not to let stuff bother me like it used to. Not saying Im stress free but I try my hardest to be. As far as car breakdowns, I...

Re: Signs, back in the day

Theres a development in my area in which all of the street signs are 4 x 4's with vertical names. Nothing was laid out square, and it meanders through the woods, quite extensively. The way the signs...

Re: Sound deadening Q ?

Dynamat comes in different thickness's I believe. At least when I did my car a few years it did. There is also a product called lizard skin which is supposed to be very good. Both are expensive, I...

Re: Wood rot - wood hardener

Re: Alabama Model A title - are A's titled in Alabama?

This type of post has been on here many times. The more important issue is if you can get what Alabama has to offer transferred in your home state. I would check with your local DMV first. I know in...

Re: Building my own complete wood kit for 31 Coupe

Nothing against any cook or fast food worker, BUT as for me, I would rather spend 10 hours in my woodshop than 5 flipping burgers!

Re: Repair of Soft Wood

Agree and disagree with Brent. Agree that a filler is not the way to go. Disagree that its ok to use such a product on a house. Then again I have made a decent living out of repairing rot on...

Re: A New Winter House for My "A"

I would welcome the cats (and im a dog person) to keep the mice under control. Ventilation underneath is not a bad idea, it will keep the rot at bay, but you could install something solid at the...

Re: AAA for breakdowns in antique?

ps, that sounds like a less than delightful experience. I think I would have told him to leave and call AAA and request another tow truck. At least you took the high road and gave him a tip though,...

Re: A New Winter House for My "A"

Good Deal! Nice little car barn. I cant imagine the electric will be all that much (once insulated).

Re: AAA for breakdowns in antique?

I hear ya! First thing I learned a long time ago, they asked me if I was in a safe place, I was, but my reply to them was that I wasnt and I was scared to death. They got there fairly quick.

Re: AAA for breakdowns in antique?

I suppose the answer is yes, AAA covers the person holding the policy, not the vehicle. I broke down last summer in my dd. I did not realize I was on the auto renewal program and my policy was...

Re: this is what I drug home yesterday- not Ford

Great looking car! I wish I was a bit more liquid and could help you with your overcrowded A situation!
AND, it looks like an old mill in the background, there must be a crick close by.

Re: Tim to sell the old girl

Yes, Facebook market place is very active. I think it may be more localized but is still a venue. I have sold some car parts on there very quickly. Usually get replies within hours of a posting.

Re: Car cover question
