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

I agree with the observation that the 28-29s look more antique but the body construction is better on the later models....the earlier models having that removable front cowl section is a crazy...

Re: 28 model a roadster front window sill

Re: Question About Inconsistent Horn Performance

actually, changing to an alternator that has been created via an original generator has been one of the happiest things I've done.

Bob, thanks for this. I feel like I have found Davy Jones' Locker, Bluebeard's Treasure Chest , the Lost Dutchman's Mine, the Amber Room, the Oak

Re: if you could go back in time, what Model "A" parts would you bring back?

I know exactly where you are coming from. It's easy to get wistful looking at those shiny cars on the dealers' showroom floors, knowing how well they operated as new vehicles.
