    If my father were still alive, he would be 100 years old today. He got me started in model A Fords in 1960.

            Hey Bill thanks for sharing your family photos
            It's obvious your Dad did a wonderful job mentoring you in this hobby.

              100 years, that’s a lot to think about. What things must have been like in 1917 when your father was born. Pre WW1 (for us), pre influenza epidemic, pre automobiles for most. Look how simple things are for us compared to those who came before us. There are so many wonderful things that we enjoy in these modern times, but there are also things that were of great value then that no longer seem to hold much worth. Character for example. People are not as stubborn about their values as they once were. I miss this.

                I had a friend in high school, early 60's who was putting together a model a pickup. I have been in love with Model A's ever since. I finally was able to buy mine in March 2015. It's a 28 Ford Roadster.

                That is why I still have the 29 tudor I bought in 1975, and that is why my brother still has the 30 town sedan that my father and I restored in 1960. My brother was only 2 when we started on that car, but he remembers it since it has been a part of him all his life.

                    I took my wife's 84 year old uncle for a ride in our '28 coupe this evening. He really enjoyed it. His smile lasted all evening.

                    A future Model A owner?
                    by Tudor31
                    I was working on my 31 Tudor today when I heard a young voice from the street saying something about a great looking car. The young (about six years old) man and his mother quickly accepted an invitation to take a closer look at Eleanor. He was very knowledgeable despite his youth and had some really good questions. However, one question got me good:"Sir, have you had this car since it was new?"...

                    Memorial day parade photo
                    by 2manycars
                    Here is a photo of the guy who was on the vererans float with me. It was his birthday, and he was 95 years old that day. He told me that exactly 75 years ago, also on his birthday, he got his draft notice for WW2.
                    You might notice that he looks better than me.
                    The other photo is my daughter and her dog, and me.

                    Good News For Me
                    by copgib
                    I have mentioned in the past that I will be picking up my 1930 Model A Coupe up in Louisana the first week of May. I will meet my brother who will be coming from Texas with my car. My mechanic has been working on it since October 2017, on and off. He is a retired mechanic that owned his own shop and had worked on many Model A's. He told my brother he loved working on my car but forgot how much work...

                    Update on my Model A
                    by copgib
                    Well my brother picked up my model A from the mechanic after a test drive with him. He told me the car runs real nice and he decided to trailer it to his house since the mechanic lives about 2-3 hours away from his house. After talking to my brother, I don't know whether to be excited or depressed. First after telling me the car runs real nice he started on the problems, he noticed that he had to...

                    Model A's In Commercial's and The Movies?
                    by Leo
                    I was in the car wash yesterday and noticed a guy with a nice mid 80's Mercedes coupe. We struck up a conversation about the car and he said that he was on his way to a commercial shoot in NYC. He went on to say that he has this car registered with an agency that supplies vehicles to photographers who want them for commercials. He also told me that the typical fee for using his car was $1000 for a...

                    Just found out
                    by copgib
                    I just found out that my first mechanic for my Model A in Texas, Jimmy Underwood has passed away at 82 years old. He was the mechanic that replaced the motor in my Model A and also got it running after it was a barn find sitting in a shed for 40 some years. Although I never met the man, he made it possible for me to afford a Model A by charging me very little for all the work he did on it. My brother...
