I was given an early 31 in 1968,when I was 12.(I'm still driving it)So I always kind of preferred the 30-31's.I did build a 28 open cab truck,and owned a 29 coupe.Just before Christmas I bought a...

Re: Do you have any pin up girls with your Model A?

Vince Falter has a nice section on pinups.I can find the page,but can't open it.Same thing happened about 5 years ago.He sent me a link that worked,but is no longer valid.

Re: Headlight bulbs

You don't focus them,but you DO have to aim them.Not the same thing.Here they're riding the inspection stations pretty hard on using the aiming machine.The garages that I know of are using the...

Re: Fatigue Cracks In Model "A" Parts

Re: FRT Brake rod question?

Also, check to see if your spindle has any up and down play. If it has play the arm will have more play when hanging free,if the car is jacked up under the axle.

Re: Wide bed A pickup

The wood in a wide bed is under the steel top skin.The wood does the supporting,the steel is just the top skin.The mounting points will be self explanatory once you look at it.
