Default Re: tell a Model A related story

Do read number 271 prior to this story.
From the pen of Bernard the wine maker who entered the vehicle in the Deni Ute Muster with the following story. The ute took first prize in the antique section. The ute is pictured as my avatar.

1928 A Model.

Originally a family car, then converted to a ute which was used by a plumber working on the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The vehicle then played a major part in the activities on a farm on the outskirts of Sydney, used for cutting wood, when the rear wheel used as a pulley to run a belt to the saw. Its first life had ceased under a blackberry bush in the fifties. Then restoration had began by Mr Norm Smith of Parramatta, but due poor health had not completed it.

The ute was purchased after I had placed a wanted advertisement for a small commercial vehicle under restoration.

The restoration was completed in 2000

And tomorrow another history of this vehicle. You decide which of 3 is true.

I know many things,
But I don't know everything,
Sometimes I forget things.

And there are times when I have a long memory. is offline   Reply With Quote
