Kind of off subject in a way but as I watch the big fires on TV out West that they are having out there, I have to wonder 'How many old cars got burned up?"

Last year I recall Hagerty showing a number of them on a video they produced, cars of all kinds from antiques to muscle cars to nice old drivers from the 50's-60's and 70's.

I do think that more A's are on the road now than there were 20 years ago. I believe that gas will still be available well down the road...it may be Aviation Gas! Now that new Model A Blocks are coming on line courtesy of Terry Burtz...all necessary parts are available...so well have them running far into the murky future. Ernie in Arizona

I likes da way you think Nice to hear optimism for a change!

New BIG oil fields continue to be 'discovered' world wide.

One good thing about the electric car revolution may be it will make gasoline available longer down the road, to some extent. May wind up buying it in 5 gallon containers from the parts suppliers, kind of like you have to do today with high octane racing gas. Expensive but those Sunoco Racing Gas cans are sure attractive
