Re: 28, 29 vs 30,31 What do you like any why?

A 28 Tudor with black tires and no added extras like side spares, wind wings, trunk etc. Just a plain ole 28 basic Tudor.

Every event with our Model A and Austin Healey have been cancelled for 2020. Next winter in AZ to escape the snow and -40 is out of the question at this point. The solution: a vaccine.
