Well done. Adam beat me to the question about the tires you were running, I caught that also they really set off your restoration.

Re: Ford built last bomber shot down in WWII

One thing that always bothered me was, we never had a GOOD tank that could take on the superior German tanks until the very end of the war when they...

Re: The new "Burtz" motor - onto the next project ?

Agree, Terry Burtz has done the hobby a tremendously great cause here, but I'd like to see it go one step beyond a Model A transmission case.

How about a new Ford 59AB V-8 Flathead block! That...

Re: Cost of Running Burtz Engine

Sounds like the price difference between the two options, isn't a deal killer.

Me, I'd spring a few extra bucks for the reliability you will have with Mr. Burtz' new block package. That alone...

Re: Tires and Tubes

I see Model A tires took a pretty good price jump.

Blackwall 19" Goodyears are 225 bucks a pop I think just two months ago they were $185 or $190

I wonder how the European brand tires wear,...

When I was growing up two of our six gas stations were run by men who grew up in the late 20's early 30's repairing vehicles. The one who owned the DX station had worked in the town Ford garage the...

Re: Blue Ribbon Restorations

I enjoy seeing the Fine Point cars, and admire the folks that go down that route and do them.

That is one aspect of the Model A News that I really enjoy; closely examining the photos of all sorts...

Re: Dual Sidemounts on a Cabriolet 68B

Our '30 Dlx. Roadster was over-deluxed in the 70's like everybody was doing then, when this car was restored, meaning they slapped a RH fender mount spare on the car.

I actually prefer the look...

Re: Mecum Auction Reender Collection

How about that 1911 Model T Touring car selling for $40K, and the '32 Ford Roadster pickup at 64 thousand?

The '48 Diamond T dually pickup was cool, sold for north of 60K. Neat truck. Has to be...

Re: lost my best friend today

Very sorry to hear of your loss. It's a reminder that life is a gift and can change very quickly on us. We all take it for granted. But time is flashing by.

Again, so sorry. Hang in there.
