  • I quit!

    This has not been a good start to a new year. I refuse to go another year not feeling good about things I once loved. So, old tractors and Chryslers gotta go. Nothing but Model A’s for the remainder of my life. I feel better already.

    Its always good to get your priorities in order. Happy new year and congrats on finding your direction! I know a few local guys that love to work on those old tractors. Occasionally I do a little machine work for them. Model As give you more opportunity for enjoyment. I can't imagine strapping the family to the Massey-Ferguson and heading down to dairy Queen!

      That's what the trailers are for and besides everybody else enjoys a "old" farmer driving to town on a tractor.

    Why not LOL

    I'll take the tractors!

    which Chrysler would you be taking about? Something with the straight 8? something with the fluid coupling?

      Perhaps a good decision from the standpoint of getting some parts for the Chrysler products. Took us 2 years to find a spider gear for a '27 Chry. coupe rear end!

        The nice thing about antique tractors is you don't have the expense of chrome and upholstery. Just be sure to use a rain cap on the exhaust, if you store it outside.

          Yeah, Tom, we used to use an empty old can. If you forgot to take it off the pipe everyone ducked. Oh well that doesn't happen anymore, "oil in plastic bottles" now.

        Spent several yrs working on old tractors, if they could only talk, what a story they would tell.

          Whoa.........back up there Captndan. Instead of selling the Chryslers, take them to the nearest dealer and trade them in on a new Studebaker.

              What is your favorite year Ford
              by ClaudeC
              It is interesting to find what year Fords are the favorites.
              I especially like the 1933,1934 fords..sexy grills. But it is primitive compared to later models.

              For some silly reason I like to take my coupe to the polls! Don't know why, I guess it just seems more patriotic or something. Of course, everyone there waves or points, lotsa smiles from everyone. It adds a little pleasure to an otherwise serious duty.

              Let me introduce myself, since I haven’t really posted on this forum much. My names Logan Douglass, I’ve been playing with model A’s my whole life (25 years). I’ve been doing paint and body work since high school, both modern collision repair and restoration work, and I’ve been teaching collision repair for the last 2 years. (on my 3rd year teaching) Every year I try to do an “old” car...

              LIFE
              by canadian
              How much life was expected from a Model A, I was wondering to myself , did them people think that 90 years later there purchase was still going to be around , Personally I find it amazing . rough times back then , money to maintain there car must have been hard to come by. I have a 29 and found some coins in front door bottom from 1932.. just wondering a few coins probably made a difference, 90 years...

              surges in 1st & second
              by carolinamudwalker
              What causes the car to surge in first & second other than poor foot work. Once started the only cure seems to be to re engage clutch and start over. If I try to accelerate out of it, the surging just gets worse. It was not there when trip stated but is getting worse. CARBORATER? LINKAGE? CLUTCH? WHAT?

              A good car for fine point restoration
              by Great Lakes Greg
              Greetings, My first post here having migrated over from ******** for something new and to get away from "what kind of oil should I use".
              I have just purchased a rust free Special Coupe that was last registered in 1961. It is a time capsule with about 90% of it's original parts intact. If not for an ugly blue repaint, I would register it in original class in Dearborn next year. I did...
