Re: Lots of A's but not so many T's

There are lots out there. Look in the MTFCA Classified. They show up on Facebook, too, if you are on that. Hemmings always has some, t oo.

Re: Model T Legroom

I bought a T, but without a seat installed, so I have no idea if I will fit. I assume I will. I am 6' 2".

Re: My wife is a keeper

Love the stories. When my wife and I went to look at my first Model A, she said, "I love that car!" Needless to say, we bought it. I knew I had the right woman before that day, but I loved hearing...

Re: Epay

Facebook is an alternative that has been working better for me in terms of sales vs. eBay. FB will charge you only if you collect $ and ship through them. I think the fees are about the same. I am...

Re: Why so many upgrades??

I would add to the list the headlight reflectors that Bratton's sells. They improve the lighting immensely.

Re: 1932 1933 1934 truck restoration or hot rod

I like the dump body. You don't see those every day. The truck looks pretty good to me. I'd leave it just the way it is and get it up to snuff mechanically. It looks like it had a pretty good...

Re: Mike's web domain error

Easy enough to download Firefox or Chrome. One needs to be flexible when it comes to internet because not all web sites work with all browsers. Annoying, but a fact of life.

Re: Swap meet etiquette / Luray

It was a good day. I brought some parts and sold more than I had expected. As to prices, I was looking to clear out some stuff I had, so I was very open to negotiation. I wish I'd sold more, but I...

Re: Mid atlantic pre war swap meet luray

Here is the pic Clem sent. Not Hassler "shocks". Look like canisters of some sort. I do not know what they are.

Re: Mid atlantic pre war swap meet luray

Stevests, I think you have it. I wasn't perceptive enough to figure out what in the world he was talking about. There were some Hassler or other shots for sale there.

Re: no advice needed, but I am curious

Not quite the same, but my 24 Model T had been sitting for 56 years and it started (with the starter). We spent 15 min on it one day, decided to replace the carb and with the replacement carb and...

Re: Mid atlantic pre war swap meet luray

Mostly Model T parts. There was a Model A chassis and a cabriolet for sale and some vendors had A parts. There are some pics on another thread. I will post mine, but they are not very informative.

Re: Mid atlantic pre war swap meet luray

"Everyone has diesel."

Good for those who use diesel.

My Ford Focus goes 330 miles on a tank, or so it tells me. I had half a tank, so I figured I had better go out with the rest of the...

Re: Mid atlantic pre war swap meet luray

There shouldn't be any problems with gas supply, although the prices may have gone up a bit. Hopefully they will be back on line in a few days. Otherwise, bring your electric car!

Re: Swap meet etiquette / Luray

As I recall, the ground is rather uneven, so scooters may have some difficulty. Hopefully there won't have been any rain. I don't really know of scooters are available, but I suspect not. As Brent...

Re: Gilmore "Model A Day" - Sept 18. 2021

Hoping for a speedy recovery.

Re: 39 lincoln zephyr

That seems reasonable if it is in good shape. You might even offer a little less. I think the 39 Zephyr is is the most attractive of what are a line of most attractive cars. There is a Lincoln...

Re: Synthetic Oil?

I use synthetic in my 39 V8. I have not put a ton of miles on it, but seems fine. I also use it in my Model As.
