Re: Otwell Manifold Heater Value?

Since it's donated, probably nothing. Just let someone buy it. If it's important $25. I have one you can have it you want.

1930 coupe wood purchased from Snyder's in 2009. All fit with no modifications. Not sure where they obtain the kits from.

Repro Hood

I've got several sections of the original hood (30-31) and a well worn complete one. Thinking about a repro hood. My question is how far off in looks is the repro compared to an original?

Re: what color is this (BOTH COLORS)

Re: How come "Car Collectors" don't like Model A's?
