After all these comments, I'd say lenmissy has a pretty good general idea of how to move on this!

Good replies.

Do you guys ever go by the NAPA antique and classic car guide? I haven't looked...

Re: Gas Tank Cutaway Photos

The newest edition of the Model A News magazine, shows a guy's gas tank that had had some kind of crap sprayed or sloshed around on the inside, probably in the 70's or early 80's before Ethanol,...

Re: looking at a restored 36 ford coupe

Re: Longest trip yet...MPG suck!

Wow 10MPG IS pretty bad on a Model A Ford.

Our '29 Tudor got 20 MPG all day long on at that time Sunoco regular 190. (1970's)

I realize a Fordor is a heavy car but you can get better than...

Re: New Tires

I guess on the radial vs. bias ply debate, I'm on the fence.

If you are one to drive your car thousands of miles a year yeah I can 'get' radials I understand.

Re: New Tires

Actually I like the looks of blackwalls on your car 100% better than whitewalls. Good choice! You have a beautiful Tudor looks good bud!

He also said not to buy 'new' tires if you see the date code is old. Demand new...

Re: Check your tires

It almost looks like the Bandag Re-cap tires that were popular around here in the 70's, they used to split out similar to that. I see it is a Firestone. What kind did you buy this time around??

Re: Model A Day in Sharon is on. June 6, 2021
