    Here is a Model A Ford on E. Allen St. in front of the Oriental Saloon, Tombstone Arizona, in 1932. Wyatt Earp dealt Faro in the Oriental in 1880, and was owned by him, a Mr. Clark, and a Mr. Rickabaugh. I am including a photo of their business card as well (with Wyatt's name misspelled). Descendants of Mr. Rickabaugh, who was also known as Wild Dave Rudabaugh, are good friends of mine here in Portland, OR.

    The Oriental Saloon still stands.

        Right. Arizona didn't become a state till 1912. I thought there might be another A there, but couldn't tell for sure. Good eye.

      I was there in late '59 or early '60. Don't think it looked quite as spiffy then as it does in the picture in post #3

        "Culture during the Model A Era."
        by Grit Kid
        Hey Mitch!!!! An addition to ponder....
        "Culture during the Model A Era." for the Model A Forum that would include almost everything that also happened, worn, included, seen, heard during the Model A era??????? Members post old photos now, advertisements and newspaper articles.

        Think about it, don't lose any more sleep than necessary. It wasn't my idea so if you do lose sleep

        Photo Editing?
        by sunnyorm
        For those of you who edit your photos; What program do you use?
        I don't have the bucks for Photoshop, or any of the others, and I find Microsoft Publisher to be too cumbersome.

        What I mean is, basically, like adding text, arrows etc. to explain sections within photos.

        I found a catalog for this company tonight while rummaging through my bookshelf. It appears to be about 1974, though I can't find a date. But oh my stars! The prices! Almost consistently across their whole product line things cost about 1/10 (or less) what they do today.

        Does anybody remember this business, or know what happened to them? Harold Looney was the proprietor. They were located...

        Service Bulletin Index Discovery
        by Grover
        A few years ago I bought a SB book with several original Model A SB's but all the 32-35 SB's (the reason I bought it). Last week I was looking at the A section and noticed the SB index in the front. Looked again and it was different. It was compiled by Murry Fahnstock in Sept 1931. Had a little different information that the one in the back of the Ford SB's that we are all familiar with. It also had...

        New to Forum
        by AzBob
        Hi All,

        New to the Vintage Ford forum here. I own a 1926 Roadster. Have owned the Model T for a year now. In the past have owned a 1929 Model A tudor and a '26 Buick coupe. Really enjoy tinkering with and driving the old “T”. Accessories installed by me are a Ruckstelll axle and recently a Stewart 160 speedometer.
