    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.

        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

        Hello,
        I hope I clicked the right place for an introduction post. We found this forum as part of our research for work on a 1928 Model A roadster. Our uncle passed away last year and left the Old Crow in our care. We are working on keeping it roadworthy and making the upgrades and repairs that he wanted to do, but didn't have a chance. The car is like a member of the family, and in a way it's like he never left us because we have it here. It's good to meet others who love the Model A, and we are looking forward to learning a lot in this journey.

        Heya OldCrowRatRod, WELCOME to the VFF!!

        Actually, anywhere you post in the general forum is good enough to introduce yourself, but since this was started this is a good place too.

        Also glad you figured how to post a picture.

        Since we all have our own Model A builds, from Fine Point to street rod, there is a lot of good reliable information here from mostly first hand experience.

          Howdy from Michigan. Looking to get back into the Model A game. Sold my hotrod coupe that I had owned for long time a couple years ago and miss having a Model A around. Looking for a 28-29 roadster this go round. Doesn't need to be pristine as I intend to drive it as much as possible. Mike

          When you find your roadster post us up some pics. Maybe an ad in the wanted will find you something

                Hi new guy and new to model A's, just got this truck and put it together and got in unstuck after 18 years of sitting. need to restore it but having fun driving it around.
                I just turned 62 and getting ready to retire in a few months, I am a body man at trade and not to good at mechanics but sure enjoy good friends and helping others.

                          Ck out the sticky’s in the technical areas. That will help explain how things are organized in those forums.
