  • AA forum possibility ?

    Mitch, is there a chance of doing this ? It would help me get a friend involved and he is very knowledgable in the early ones. Most of all it would benefit me greatly, selfish I am, and it would possibly get my truck going. Thank you for your consideration on this manner. P.S.- this is serious, but they are really fun to use ! Pat
    Model A's and of course the famous AA's

      Same cab, fenders, engine (except for the extra A stamped on them), seats, windows, and etc. Why do I feel displaced and no body loves me !! Probably because I own an AA on an A forum ? Pat's sad, very sad, and that's no B.S. I know I'll always be last to the bar, last to the hotel, and the one who helps distressed Model A in trouble, but a half hour after they breaks down ! I think I'll get a winch so at least one, Model A, person at a time loves me. AA Blues wishing all you A people safe travels ! You know I'm watching your back, so wait awhile and I'll be there to help. Mr. High Speed Worm Drive Man..

    Ya know Pat, when I was a kid with a Model A family, we even collected AAs. I remember bringing the first one home. We rented a Uhaul trailer that had cattycorner mis-matched tires. It had 4 tires of 2 sizes, the tires opposing were the same size.

    Anyway, on the way home after loading this thing on the trailer hood forward, the oak bed was hanging out with a flag, and coming down this slight decline, my sister driving her 56 truck, the trailer hitch the high spot, we started to kinda fishtail in the middle, and instead of running away from it, she hits the brakes to slow down, we wind up jackknifed across the 4 lanes onto oncoming traffic, the trailer tongue up over the bumper, the truck still on the trailer but the bed laying off to the side on the curb. My brother sitting in the middle with a cup of coke in his hand never spilling a drop, all three us just a bit shaken up.

    Needless to say, it took all of us to get things righted back the way they should, with the help of the AAA tow truck drivers help.

    Anyway, we finally get home with this beast and in the backyard where it rests comfortably. A nice example of the early '28 left brake closed cab AA. Sure wish I had all those cars we had back then.

    Sorry to get off on nostalgia. Memories come so dearly.

    BTW, that was one of the few that became a runner, my brother fell in love with it.

      Sorry for laughing Wiz ! I felt like I was there in the 56 !! Great story and I'm glad it only took AAA to solve your problems. Your with us now and that's what matters the most. I need these stories Wiz, because that's who we are. My cousin, if you asked him a question, would tell you the truth right down to the price of pop and the strippers He's gone now (2 years), but I still wear his winter pants and shoes he left me. I'm a very proud man, I guess, of people who do good. Wiz, your my friend and you don't have to be mine. No contracts here !! I need to meet you and Bill for sure, I guess Rowdy's on the way. This is a great forum and I will do what ever it takes..................Your friend, Pat

      Thanks Pat. I am proud to call you friend, as well as the rest of the crew here. This has been a long time coming and it was due.

      Actually, it was 1966, but the 50's and 60's were a time of wonder for me.

      As for stories of my youth, there are a few that will put a smile on your face as it does mine when I remember them. Give me some time, I don't want to over run the place with me.

      Your friend, J.C.

    Pat, if you're looking for an antique hand winch for a wrecker, I saw a couple in Cooley's junk yard the other day. I could spend all day just walking around in a good old junkyard. It's like an outdoor museum.

      You have to take me with sometime ! I was a junkyard dog back in the day. I worked at Bauer Brothers Salvage in St. Paul, located off 35E and Maryland. They are in Minneapolis now on 2nd Ave. N. I worked for Herman, the father, who did the auto salvage part and the boys did building salvage. This should be on your list of stops someday soon. They are 20 minutes from you and have tons of stuff also.

    Model A/AA Ford Websites...Can YOU add to the list?"
    by Steve Plucker
    Where is this list on this forum so I can start to update it?

    Ford Outhouse will not let me do it so I have quit them...done!

    I don't need their BS, runaround crap for the past 4 years that they have given me about revising it.

    Last time was January 2017!

    This is the better site by far!

    by Steve Plucker
    Did the Ford Motor Company offer any type of Waranty to the Model A/AA Ford at the time of sale from a dealer during 1928-1931?

    Thanks.

    by JDupuis
    Anyone know what the weight of an AA chassis (dual wheel) and cab would be? No box on back.
    Just looking for a ball park figure.
    We have a gravel dump box truck that we are trying to get licensed. Jeff

    AA and the Warford
    by pAAt
    I just heard from my friend, that the Warford overdrive is in the truck He took the AA for a drive and said that at 45 mph he got a bit of a shake. He said it never did that before . I'm sure he'll take care of that, just like his total rebuild of the overdrive ! It's nice to have a piece of my world speeding through Nebraska...

    AA with 4-wheel drive
    by CarlG
    I just received my copy of "The Restorer" last night. One of the articles made mention of an AA with 4-wheel drive.

    Has anyone seen this vehicle? The only mention of it was just that it was on display at some event, but had no pictures or other information on it.

    Edit:
    It was listed as a display Vehicle at the MAFFI Museum Model A Day IX page 15 The Restorer...

    Looking for a Good 1928 AA Restoration Book
    by Tom Wesenberg
    A friend just emailed me asking what is a good restoration book for his AA?
    I think he just bought a 1928, and I can't think of any books just for the AA.
    Any ideas? Thanks
