    So Carl let us know where you're at and what the new delivery is going to be. Should we be thinking blue or pink?

        The car was recommended to me by DaWizard. It's close to me, close enough to what I was looking for. The color isn't original, but that isn't a turn off for me. At least it isn't some stupid color that totally detracts from the car. Nice, original style interior, a few upgrades like 12 volt and turn signals. Nice driver. I'm gonna have fun IMG_0314.JPG

                My family hails from your neck of the woods. Mansfield, Bowling Green, Fostoria, Sandusky, etc. I still have some distant cousins in OH. We were there in 2000, looking for old bones (genealogy)

                      Hi Carl,

                      In reading and seriously concentrating on your comment, "Waiting to hear from the seller, so I can pick it up. I've been pacing the floor for a week!!!!" ..... maybe grab a chair and try sitting ..... he might call after five minutes!

                      Hope this helps.

                          Hi Carl,

                          Last resort ...... get your checkbook ready!

                          Like with a football game, the moon is in it's Last Quarter, the Waning Crescent today is at 26%, down from 35% yesterday and will approach 0% as we will approach a New Moon on January 17, 2018.

                          Don't tell this Model A seller about the current January 2018 moon phases ...... have patience and let the moon do it's job ........ improper interpretation the moon's function has been known to create lunatics.

                          Hope these moon phases can help.

                                      Introduce her slowly to your wife. I swear for the first year mine never acted up unless my wife was in it. I also found out if she is constantly acting up take her to a hot rod show and say this could be you... it is amazing how much better she runs on the way home. Congrats and enjoy. Best hobby ever!

                                          We had 11 cars in Anchorage and 5 in Fairbanks that showed up as a group for IMAFD Celebrations.

                                          The Anchorage group assembled at the Sears Mall for a brief 1 hour car show, followed by a tour of downtown. It was amazing to see all the cameras come out of nowhere to take our pictures as we drove down the streets. Then we headed out to Pt. Woronzof for a picture shoot, to City Diner for...

                                          Do any of you know just what assembly plant supplied Alaska with the Model A/AA's during 1928 thru 1931? Anyone?



                                          Has anyone done any research on that aspect of Model A/AA Ford production?



                                          (Looks like it was a great tour to McCarthy)!
