Re: Model A Trader Magazine

Hemmings on line and auctions have taken over from the print edition. I’ve sold several high dollar cars through Hemmings on line.

Re: Vintage tires- any value?

Out of date tires are an accident waiting to happen. Irresponsible to sell them to someone else.

Re: Model A rearend conversion

Have had my T-5 for ten years and it has nothing to do with speed, engine modifications determine the increase in speed. I can run 75 MPH with a fifth gear overdrive without stressing the engine.

Re: Bone Stock or Modified?

One of the problems with threads like this is the lack of perspective. Take brakes for instance. Yes, you can "skid" all four tires with mechanical brakes. But how many times can you do that in...

Re: My wide-bed

Curious about the Weber side draft. Pictures? Did you make the manifold? How does it compare to the 32/36 down draft?
