“The Restorer” for Jan/Feb 2021

I received my copy of “The Restorer” for Jan/Feb 2021 today in VA. It seems the same corresponding issue of the “Model ‘A’ News” tends to run almost two months later than “The Restorer” for the last...

Floorboard Heater

The Sep/Oct 2020 issue of Model “A” News has a picture of what appears to be a floorboard heater on page 43.

Can anyone tell me how it was hooked up?

Is there a recognizable brand name for it?...

Re: Ford Barn sign-in

At least Windows 10 is better than Windows 8. I really didn’t care for the “dumbed down” Windows 8 at all. ;-)

Adding Guages

Wow. I didn’t know the “idiot light” was available way back in 1929. I had just assumed it was a late 1950s thing. (I think my 1957 Fairlane had idiot lights.)

Thanks for sharing.

"Flickering" low bean headlights

Benefits of a thermostat?

There are a couple of popular choices. I run this one, and it works great. Plus, it has a nice connection I can use to connect my temperature gauge.
