Didn't get my Coupe until September, so only managed 62 miles. Looking forward to 2021 if we can go anywhere! Gotta get that shot!

3,900 miles in 40 years. Do the math.

We just drive around town and to local car show. Route 95 in my mind is no place for a Model A. Only way across the Connecticut river is on 95. Four lanes of crazy New York drivers and trucks.

I really enjoy just owning it. My rocker is right in the garage. I can have coffee or a cold beer and admire my car.

Happy New Year everyone.

With my Model T, less then 100. No tours and just had not been real enthused about taking it out this year. Considering we were going to have 12 to 14 different tours this year, I leading 3 of them, kinda just fell flat.

I average about 1000 per year, but 2020 was less than 100.

With almost no car shows, only 2 small private parades and nowhere to go I put on a little less than 2,000 miles.

I drove about 6000 miles this year. It would have been more, but I had a wheel bearing go bad and there was a shortage of wheel bearings earlier this year. I was lucky and actually found some new old stock USA made Timken bearings. All the driving was within about 50 miles of home. Even with an oil filter there were lots of oil changes and greasing.

Probably about 1500 miles, starting in March. I;ve had my car since 1967, and restored it (1931 deluxe roadster) in 1985, but was working and raising a young family, so put 2300 miles on it until 2018. When I retired and had time to work on the car, it;s now roadworthy again and I started touring with the local Model A club in Charleston - LowCountry Model A’s. I expect to put many more miles on the car in 2021.

Typically I drive between 3,000 and 4,000 miles in a year. This year was a little different.

1) I had knee surgery in January
2) Covid hit just as I was recovered from the surgery -- all club activities/trips were cancelled
3) In July, I had surgery on the other knee further limiting my activities.

Despite that, I was able to get several things accomplished though
a) replaced the wood in the bed of the pickup
b) Replaced door handles so that both doors have key locks, keyed alike
c) Replaced inside door panels with new ones from Classtique
d) Converted fog lights to LED and got them installed (project waiting for 10 years)
e) Found some period correct turn signal arrows, converted them to LED & installed them (finished just yesterday)

Surprised myself when I calculated the mileage for the year: 1,010 miles!
