    Just a thought................ I have a clear title for a 28 Pu. Pretty nice box, cabs, and stuff I would donate. Can't bring myself to selling it, so what about a VFF garage/shed where people could get together and complete A's. We could give/sell??? them to the handicaps, Veterans, or anyone who is deserving. ??????

    I guess my thoughts are all bad, must be from my up bringing !! When I was a sprinklerfitter in the twin cities, (Sorry, but it gave thought to HLC, kinda like this man, but has nothing to do with my venting !! ) I gave a man a huge government drill press I'd acquired from a friend. He just couldn't believe it, because nobody had ever given him anything before. His machine shop was capable of doing anything. ( drill press was awesome Though ).... What is wrong here or is it just me ? I don't need anything but food occasionally , I learned that from 18-21 that food is good !!!!!!! All my other shit has no real value, but does have a drag on your brakes ! pAAt venting. P.S. The more I give the more I get back and that is a fact, This is too all my Ford friends. Mr. Theilman

      Ya know Pat, I have been paying forward and giving for so long, and now that I feel I am in my time of need it fails to return to me. I love your idea, and am still paying forward as I don't charge for my services as a Model A mechanic since my memories of the Model A have been returning almost on a daily basis. I even had a couple of our members refer to me for a spectators questions on a Model A for sale by one of our club members.

      I like your idea, but really have nothing to add at this time except my knowledge base.
      You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

I'm going to go this course till I die, god willing, and can't see any other way ! Stupid? generally and beyond P.S.- Knowledge base and a place is all I'm asking. Could be my place, but Tom W. would have to help me build it !!!

          Pat, I wish I could make the trip to pick it up, or afford to have you send it GreyHound, but alas, there is still way too much month left at the end of my meager retirement check.

        Is there an interested deserving youth in your area that would not make a hotrod or ratrod out of it? Just a thought in thinking about the future of the hobby. Still have not tested the starters, but your other parts are still set back. Been busier than normal, but feel like I am spinning my wheels. Rod

Your friend, Pat P.S.- Hot Rod ?? I have enough to make a 28 A stock truck!!! I'm done with this bullshit, I will sell it for what I can get. Unless some kid comes along and helps me clean out my garage. Good luck with your hobby, pAAt

          Mitch, Wiz and Rowdy are the best. I'm thinking this post never should have happened and I'm sorry for that. Please delete it for the good of all and don't be sending me stuff, cause I'll have to send you stuff back !! Pat

          Mitch, you got me crying again !! The youngest hunter here shot a ten pointer, this morning, with a beautiful red tinted rack. We're about to take a nap, so the adults can try to get one !! Thanks Mitch, very hard to find a more knowagable, friend like, person than you. Although Rowdy,wiz, Tom, and that guy from (close to Zumbrota) come in a close 2nd place pAAt Mr. Theilman

            Is Our Hobby Dying? Our Hobby Interest Dying?
            by H. L. Chauvin
            We can all admit that the Internet is many times a great source for sharing wonderful Scientific Knowledge.

            With a little research anyone can find back-up advice and suggestions on how we may continue to try to help our Model A friends who might be sliding down hill and losing interest in Model As.

            From a little research on the Internet:

            Why is this hobby dying?
            by Corley
            This post will most likely tick some of you off. Here is my premise: Old car clubs are loosing members as the old guys are croaking. There are not enough young people interested in the hobby to have it continue in the future years, and it will slowly die off, until the only place to see old cars is in museums. I will next attempt to blame all of us in this hobby for this problem.

            The A has been sold.
            by Blown Gasket
            It is somewhat sad but I am no longer the owner of a model A ford. It has been sold and the deal completed today with the money in our bank and title sent via UPS. The transport company should be here next week to pick it up.
            If things change as far as Covids by next summer I might look for a phaeton but who knows. It was a fun experience having it and I can't praise VFF and all the people on...

            Hi, Guys. I'm sorry for dropping off the edge of the world. I've missed interacting with the group. Firstly, I'm fine; no disasters or health problems, etc.; thanks for caring! In retrospect, what happened isn't really surprising. After driving my Model A in a heavily populated area for almost 1000 miles, I came to the sudden realization that I wasn't comfortable sacrificing the acceleration, braking,...
