      I wonder who got it?
      I too was surprised that it went that high, as the last several I've seen have been about $125.

        With the approval of our club board I bid $150 to add it to our club lending library. Ha! Bids shot right past that!

            Numerous times Tom Wesenberg has posted Service Bulletins on ebay, but I'm never able to catch these in time and usually don't bid high enough to win either. Will the versions the Model A dealers sell suffice?

            The Very Best Model A Service Bulletins
            by Tom Wesenberg
            Years ago Ben Staub made the very best reproduction of the original Model A Service Bulletins. Every once in a while they show up on ebay. I bought a set about 15 years ago. These are a bit high, but if you want the best, here is a set now on ebay.

Our kids take it apart and reassemble it, learning how to use tools in the process. Check out our fotos of the kids working on it. Your support is needed, each $100 dollar donation receives a raffle ticket for our project car. The winning ticket is set to be...

            EBay Cautions
            by BudP
            Many times I have purchased Model A items on EBay. Generally, I only purchase if I need the item, the price is reasonable, and the description (pictures and narrative) gives me some assurance of the quality. Last night I was a seller, listing Model A side curtains (appeared to have never been used) from my stash and new side curtain rods (original style, unopened packaging) for $475 including shipping....

            Original service bulletins?
            by jordanka16
            Going through my grandparents stuff I found this tucked away on a bookshelf. At first I though it was just a well used repro service bulletins but its different, the pages are slightly different, some are stamped by dealers, and it goes well into the V8 era instead of stopping at model As. Is it a collection of original service bulletins?

            Where Does Your Model A Club Hold It's Meetings?
            by Tom Wesenberg
            Our club meets from 7 to 9 in the cafeteria of the local high school. We don't meet during the summer months when school is out, so we hold 9 meetings. For this we pay the school $1040, but next year they will charge us $2700. This is way out of line IMHO.

            I've always thought the club should buy their own meeting place, but have never looked into the cost of that.

            towing services and insurance SHOUT OUT
            by richsfords
            During the National Tour I had a road side seminar. Late night on a mountain side. Fellow CCA club member got us to an service station, called the towing service listed by the Mountain region Club. Colonial Court Service, showed up fast, efficient and inexpensive.
            Because of the late hour I didn't call the tow line provided by Hagerty Ins. Just wanted to get back to Elkins before dawn. I submitted...
