  • 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.

              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.

              How would anyone feel about this?
              by Terry, NJ
              In researching British Austin sevens, I came across this program for insuring the passing down our love for certain vehicles. I don't know the details, I don't even know if it would be legal in the USA, but it goes like this, a certain young person is give an Austin Seven to drive for a year, everyday! There are liability issues, maintenance issues, general care issues, such as will it be housed...

              Question on "extra" parts...
              by KB9JLO
              As some of you know - I'm a newbie. I have a 1930 Town Sedan - Murray body. Not planning to restore, just want to make a decent driver - not a rat rod, not a street rod - just a Model A driver... Nothing is definite - everything is dependent on money, of course. I'm 60 and will be doing most if not all the work myself. I know I've been over this before. I'm getting to the punch line really! ...
