  • Another Model A destroyed

    Something this ridiculous doesn't even deserve air time, but what a waste of a Model A.
    Can this even be street legal?
    There's no way to see what's in from of you.
    It can't be comfortable, nor safe, and I wonder how much money was wasted to make this monstrosity?

    That has got to be one of the ugliest "Model A's" I have ever seen. Even the color is ugly. YUCK! What a shame.

      You would not be able to see where you are going. Unsafe at any speed.

            What a piece of ART, beautiful !
            like a fine points car can't be driven !
            To each his own, sum will not paint an original, sum will make better than new
            destroyed? maybe maybe not.
            What did they start with ? A body that had been removed and left to rot ?
            We should applaud one who saves an rusty piece and turns it a diamond !

                  Whether we like it or not its his vehicle to do as he pleases. I don't care for this vehicle but reality is there is large group building rat rods and its growing.

                    Tom, why are you bragging about destroying another model A? ANOTHER?

                      You are correct, and we are allowed to comment on whether we feel it is a fine piece of engineering or garbage.

                          A supercharger, two 4 barrel carbs, an air box, and 3 large air scoops.
                          What a mess. Also see how high the crank pulley sets. They tranny must be taking up most of the front seat area.

                          Here's the new listing.

                                    I never understood chopping the roof down. I have to hunch down to see the red light change as it is with stock. Some of these chop jobs, you'd have to lower the seat so low to see out, your arse would be dragging on the pavement.

                                      I agree. I never could understand why anyone would want less room in an already tight compartment, and this even applies to newer cars, like in the 50's. I never liked the looks of chopped tops, let alone the expense of doing it.

                                        What is the highest elevation you've driven your Model A?

                                        I'm currently in Cusco, Peru that has an elevation of 11,150 feet above sea level. That got me thinking about driving Model A's in high elevations. Several years ago, I drove my Tudor over the Beartooth pass from Redlodge, MT to the NE entrance to Yellowstone Park at an elevation of almost 11,000 feet above sea level. When I got to the top, I stopped to take some pictures. People asked me how I was...

                                        What I am about to say, may either bring the gnashing of teeth or absolute, side-splitting hilarity, to the Model T purists. And come to think of it, the Model T modifiers as well.
                                        Personally, I prefer the Model T in its pure form. However every so often, I have a stroke of genius. Or maybe I just have a stroke?
                                        I realize, Model Ts have been re-powered by many different types of engines....

                                        by DBaldwin
                                        How many of you have had a professional appraisal done on your model A for insurance purposes? Or do you just come to an agreed price with your insurance company? For my last car I had it appraised however now I’m finding it difficult to get an appraisal as the gentleman has apparently retired and there isn’t anyone locally anymore. The next question is what is a good price now days for an appraisal?...

                                        by Jordan
                                        I have considered getting another Model A to tinker with for a little while now- but a school teacher I can only afford so much. I have ALWAYS wanted an "original" car to make into a "grapes of wrath" type vehicle to just have fun with. I almost got one last year- but someone else got to it literally 30 seconds before I did.

                                        I found this 28 Tudor and the owner is asking...

But was told it’s a model T, I’m just the nominated one to do the restoration and thrilled to have the pleasure of doing it up for her since it was her papaws and...

                                        When I got my 28 Roadster, the engine was locked up and required a rebuild. I was unprepared to intelligently answer many of the questions my rebuilder asked me about what I wanted him to do. He started asking about shaving the fly wheel explaining the benefits, then on to a different, newer clutch that would be easier to push....I opted for most all of the changes he recommended. He was a well established...
