                If you are looking in the Plilly area, Mitch has a shop that can do lube jobs.

                  Welcome and congrats on acquiring the Model A. What’s body style is it? Any pics? There is a very good central NJ Model A club that can help you along with your car. I’m in NE philly right off I-95, if you need a backup plan. What kind of things do you need done? The board members here can walk you through most of the stuff pretty easily.

                      From northern Delaware I took my first A up to Mitch and very happy with the work. About an hour up so I took it up in a trailer. Where are you in central NJ?

                        I joined up over on the **** **** and figured I'd join in here too. I inherited my grandfathers Model A, it was his first car, he bought it in 1957 and restored it about 16 years ago. He taught me a lot about it but it seems there is always more to learn about these awesome cars, look forward to learning!

                        Can anyone recommend a shop to re-pour and line bore model A main bearings in the North East? I have been using the Babbit Pot for a number of years but they are on vacation until the end of March and I would like to get this job started before then. Any recommendations in NH, ME, VT, NY, MA or CT would be appreciated.

                        If anybody is here, Merry Christmas. I'm in western NC with a 1921 Touring. Nice to find another model T forum. I'll check back to see if anyone else shows up.

                        Greetings!! I am new the process of finalizing the purchase of a 1926 Model T Touring.

                        Hey all, just joined. New to Model A's. Don't currently have one. Trying to get ahead, be able to have one. Hard to do. Life! The wife and I are currently taking care of my mother. She was diagnosed with Alzheimers. What's the values of Model A's? Nothing rare, something like a tudor sedan. Like muscle cars too, but those are crazy high!!!!

                        Hello all:
                        My first post to the forum.

                        I ordered a long-overdue top from LeBarron Bonney at Hershey this year, and in getting ready for having the install done, I found about 4" of the driver-side bow all but broken off near the bolt joint of my 28 Phaeton.To compound this, the bow is filled with something like chalk instead of wood. So when I pulled the staples out of the...
