Default Moderl A broke down in Woodstock New Brunswick

My friends Will and Carla broke an axle on their 31 SW sedan heading back to Calif from the lobsters and lighthouses tour. They are presently trying to get the car towed to Bangor. Are there any Barners around who can give him a hand?

Kudos to you Ron. That's what I love about the Model A community. Whether it's taking time to help others in need or answering questions on the forum. Overall this is the most caring, kind, and helpful group of people I have ever been associated with. Thanks for helping us keep these Model A's on the road.

I talked to Will this evening and at this point he is planning on getting it hauled to Bangor and renting a rig to take it home. Thanks to others for volunteering. Ron W

Thank you to everyone who offered help. That's what I love about old car folks, they're always there for someone who needs help. Will is gonna haul it back to San Jose as the differential is locked up and he was having overheating trouble with the engine too.
