Re: Swap meet etiquette / Luray

Brett is that Coupe Stone Brown or Chicle Drab/Copra Drab? I always got confused on that color guess I need to buy the new Paint refinishing guide that MAFCA has out:)

Thanks

Re: The Future of Our Vintage Fords?

Maybe a chance for clean cheap energy worldwide for everyone. Economies of Scale.

Re: The Future of Our Vintage Fords?

Yes, that is the ticket. There is room for everybody, let's not ban one type of fuel over another just because.

Let the market decide who the winners and losers are.

One last thought. I'm 66,...

Re: Swap meet etiquette / Luray

Wow that looks neat. I see you don't have to deal with non - Model A &T stuff piled all over, along with jewelry, doo dads, etc.

Never heard of this swap meet. I'll have to tag it for another...

Re: Now here is a house I can live with

I thought Illinois winters sucked until I talked to a former classmate who lives out there..... No way if I move it won't be to a colder climate:)

I'm not sure just how it is all going to work out. I think none of us really do.

Re: Railroad Inspection Car

They ran those putt-putt MOW cars down the CB&Q tracks by our house in the 50's and 60's. When the train would come along I would see the workers get out, pull these long wooden handles out, and lift...

Re: Model A Day in Sharon is on. June 6, 2021

Mike remember years ago (the 70's) when they used to have car auctions plus the swap meet at Pecatonica, it was a fairgrounds (Boone County) I think.

That was always fun. Seems as I recall there...

Re: Pump Gas for a Model A

I've seen too many carburetors taken apart with thick gooey white crap deposited in them, as a result of using Ethanol. Rubber fuel lines turned to mush, or swelled up. The stuff gets real foul real...

Re: Cast Iron brakes

Good points as you and Gene noted.

I can see where they work better and Ford thought they must have been a good idea to bring them out in '31 from the factory. The rolled ends look more authentic...

SeaFoam isn't too bad but I've had better luck with Gumout Tune-Up with PEA.

Charlie take care of yourself---get plenty of rest, drink a lot of fluids. Good to hear that you and your family is on the road to mending. Covid can be nasty.
