    Jeff I am probably in a different situation than alot of others on this board. I am trying to bring alive a 1930 Model A that was stored in a shed for 25-years. Numerous problems but trying to tackle one problem at a time. Look forward to talking with you! Hugh

      Hugh post any questions in the general A area. Your actually in a very familiar situation that many have dealt with.

      Just found your response Hugh.
      I woke up an A after a 47 year slumber.

    Hi, I'm new to the Forum but have owned a number of A's for the past 25 years. (29 Roadster, 28 Pick-up, and a '30 Tudor) I am in the early stages of restoring a'30 Coupe which I have had since the start. Doing a total nuts and bolts restoration. I have the frame complete, front and rear axles in place, and am working on the wheels so that it can finally roll around again. I have a 31 SW sedan as a driver and a '28AA in the yard for a project some day. I am enjoying the various posts on the site!

    Decided to introduce myself I've been reading for quite a while and have a stock 1930 coupe which I bought sometime ago and decided time for me to make it mine as in redoing the previous restoration .I have been playing with old cars mostly 50's and 60's . After getting body done to my standards I'm going to convert to hydraulic brakes , get rid of the 19" tires and am thinking of a flathead 8 . Hope I don't upset you guys by doing this . I do all my own work with over 50 years exp. These changes are what I feel is necessary for me to enjoy the car more . I will not chop and plan on keeping the look stock as possible.

      Well Fomoco998, WELCOME to the VFF!!

      BTW, very nice looking coupe, and like it has been said before, "it is your car and you can do with it as you please" in regards to the modifications.

      Keep putting the pictures up of the modifications you do. We also like video tutorials of those mods.

    How do you search for a word or phrase across all the different posts? I see a search box when reading a single post, but I want to find a topic without having to scroll through 50+ pages. "muffler" to be exact thanks.

        Hello everyone, my name is Ronnie Hill and I will be 50 in July. I’m glad that there’s a place to ask and answer Model A question’s without getting ran down the road. I grew up with Model A’s and have a little knowledge of A’s. Not nearly as much as most guys on here. I was lucky enough to get to be very good friends with Rodger Kauffman the last 5 or 6 years before he passed away. Rodger was a great guy and if you knew him you know he knew Model A’s inside and out. Anyway I’m glad to be here. I have a original unrestored late 31 standard Coupe and a early 31 pickup.
        Don’t get too excited.

          Hey Ronnie, WELCOME to the VFF!! Great vehicles ya got there, and I am very glad you are one of the youngsters that had some mentoring. We really need young blood into the hobby.

        I love Model A’s particularly original cars. They are such a time capsule.
        Don’t get too excited.

          Ronnie thanks for the intro and welcome to the VFF family. Love your unrestored coupe and your work in progress pickup. I never met Rodger Kauffman but I have heard a lot about him. You were certainly in some good company

            Couple more pictures of the Coupe I found interesting. Does anyone remember that service station?
            Don’t get too excited.

            I’m just hoping that a lot of those guys stay there

              Only invite the "nice guys". Little or no experience is very welcomed, as, well as experienced guys. Just no idiots! . Jeff

            Hi Folks,
            Thanks for adding me to the list. I inadvertently stumbled across this forum recently, but recognise a lot of you from the **, where I've been hanging out for the last few years. I've been lurking here for a few weeks, trying to get a sense of what is going on, who's who in the zoo, and the politics of this place and the other. However, now I'm out and have just posted my first thread - "Dropped sump, found metal" (GULP!).

            I am the custodian of a Canadian built, Australian assembled '28 Phaeton (June '28 stamped on the fuel tank), which the previous owner placed on a '29 rolling chassis. Body-wise, the car is unrestored. I intend to preserve it that way.

            I look forward to continuing to learn lots from the wiseheads that I know are here, and hope that you will put up with my questions as I seek to learn more about, and do more work on my Model A. I thank you in advance for what I will learn, and to the admin for hosting this forum.
            Cheers,
            Martin (Hoogah)

              So that's weird! I tried to type the letters "eff bee" above, and all that appeared was **.

              Welcome to the ZOO…I mean VFF Martin.
              I know of you from the other place.
              Since coming here in January of this year, I have had very little activity on the other site. I have not gone there in over a month now.
              I feel very much "at home" here, and hope you will as well.
              Very good "Family" here. Jeff
