    Ford Model A assembly line
    by Jeff/Illinois
    Nothing new, most of you have seen this before, but it is still fun to watch! Ford was good about documenting and filming their operations we're glad today that they did.

    That guy on the main line connecting the engine to the drivetrain must have been the Main Man he appears in still photos a lot too.

    Why a Model A
    by Fixitphil
    The reason I bought my 1931 Sport Coupe was that I've always had a yearn to own another one. I bought this one at age 77 as a hobby for my retirement years. I've owned "Baby" for 6 months and hope to have the restoration done in another couple of months.
    My parents always talked of the good ole days and the Model A was always in the conversation.
    I owned a Tudor in High School,...

    I did some research
    by copgib
    I have asking around trying to locate someone close to my location that can help me when I need it on my Model A. I contacted one guy that was refered to me by another Model Aer. Unfortunately he no longer works on them and has another fulltime job now. So while checking around my area I remembered we have one salvage yard in town. I have only been there once, so I decided to go. I met the owner named...

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

    Good News For Me

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...

    Ahooga Reproduction Parts
    by dmdeaton
    I was working in Dayton this morning and on the way back to Cincinnati I decided to look up some parts shops in the area. Since I was driving through and had a few minutes I would stop and check them out. Gaslight is in Urbana, too far north. Ahooga is right on the way home. I stopped in what is a factory and I couldn't believe what I saw. Punch presses actually making parts for A's and T's here in...
