Re: How Many Model A's Are There Now?

I used to work at the GM Proving Ground in Milford, Michigan back in the old muscle car days. Was a great time then.

And remember the Greenfield Village old Ford festivities.

Re: Cold Outside So Do I Run, Crank, Sit or Ignore?

I would run it until it gets up to operating temperature for 15-20 minutes or so every month.

Just my opinion.

Re: Tires

If you are buying a whole set, I would spend the money and get radial tires.

Just my opinion.

Re: “The Restorer” for Jan/Feb 2021

I get one mag one month, and the next month the other mag comes.

That works for me.

Almost like a monthly mag that way :)

Re: Goodbye my Friend

I worked in the Walla Walla and Dayton area of Washington state back in 1967 in the pea and wheat harvest.

Great country and good people out that way.

Re: Why are there so many more 1930 grill shells than 1931s?

I was thinking the '28/'29 grill shells were the same......and the '30/'31 grill shells were the same.

I guess there is a visual or some other difference between the '30 and the '31 grill shells?

Are there pros and cons to either...

I'm thinking whether to buy radial tires or not is the key issue these days.

Re: What are some of the counter intuitive things you have learned about a Model A?

Thanks, Brent....I am guessing "1/2-way advanced on the quadrant" is with the spark lever at about 9 o'clock.

And fully advanced is with the lever at about 8 o'clock.
