  • Model A of the day

    This morning's model a of the day on MAFCA is my father and his roadster. He sold the town sedan he and I restored in 1960, and bought the roadster in 1967. It was in a barn at a pansy farm, where the owner had stashed several model A;s to sell in his retirement. It was completely original. He took 7 years restoring it, and enjoyed it up until his death in 1981. We never found the roadster after he sold it just before he died, but we found the town sedan, and my brother and I have taken turns owning it. It now is at my brother's place in VT.

    Thanks for the story Bill. That is a neat picture and I wondered what was behind it when I saw it.

      I gave Rick all that information, but he did not include it with the photo.

      Memorial day parade photo
      by 2manycars
      Here is a photo of the guy who was on the vererans float with me. It was his birthday, and he was 95 years old that day. He told me that exactly 75 years ago, also on his birthday, he got his draft notice for WW2.
      You might notice that he looks better than me.
      The other photo is my daughter and her dog, and me.

      Suggestions solicited for driving a Model A with a bad left leg.
      by 2manycars
      My friend is 87 years old, and his legs do not work as well as he would like, and he asked me if there was some conversion to aid clutching, or even an automatic transmission adaption. He does not want to give up driving his Victoria.

      Model A's In Commercial's and The Movies?
      by Leo
      I was in the car wash yesterday and noticed a guy with a nice mid 80's Mercedes coupe. We struck up a conversation about the car and he said that he was on his way to a commercial shoot in NYC. He went on to say that he has this car registered with an agency that supplies vehicles to photographers who want them for commercials. He also told me that the typical fee for using his car was $1000 for a...

      Two Model A's found in a garage. no pictures
      by George Miller
      Years a go a friend came to me and said he found a 2 door Model A that he wanted. But there was a 1930 four door there also. He said the guy would only sell both. So I got the four door, he got the tudor. The problem was we had to take the wall down on the lean too that was attached to the garage, to get his tudor out. Then the guy made us put it back up after we got the car out. He did not help....

      Good News For Me
      by copgib
      I have mentioned in the past that I will be picking up my 1930 Model A Coupe up in Louisana the first week of May. I will meet my brother who will be coming from Texas with my car. 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...

      Just found out
      by copgib
      I just found out that my first mechanic for my Model A in Texas, Jimmy Underwood has passed away at 82 years old. He was the mechanic that replaced the motor in my Model A and also got it running after it was a barn find sitting in a shed for 40 some years. Although I never met the man, he made it possible for me to afford a Model A by charging me very little for all the work he did on it. My brother...
