    I went to an auction a few years ago and there were several cars in that condition. I later kicked myself for not buying the steel blindback fordor wreck and the sport coupe. I coulld have made a coupe with no quarter window and made people scratch their heads.

      Stuck Clutch
      by Roadster Rich
      My car is now in Venice Florida since last summer. I last drove it in September and had a pretty bad leaking water pump. So I repaired that and just went to go for a ride. Started up like a champ, but the clutch is stuck and pushing in the pedal does nothing. I am right on the gulf and in a garage that is not dehumidified so I suspect it is corrosion causing this.

      I seem to have heard...

      A big day
      by Art Ebeling
      Got the body painted today. This is the lower color, Kewanee green. Next comes the upper color. I used Sherwin Williams 2nd dimension single stage. Perfect match to the paint and finish guide. A big thanks to Larry Shepard for the paint mix codes.

      Gas line leak
      by Art Ebeling
      I have tried three different original seamed inside gas lines on my Victoria and can not stop a small leak at the inside firewall connection to the sediment bowl. It looks like all three gas lines have the flared end slightly flattened and not making a good seal. I ordered a new line today to use until I can find a good original. Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks, Art

      Bad clutch??
      by Tgenardi
      Just purchased a 1930 Model A with a 1980 Jeep engine and 1939 transmission from what I was told. It may have an adapter between bell housing and transmission. When you put the clutch in, you can change gears, but the vehicle doesn't move. The previous owner said it just went out as she had other potential buyers test driving the vehicle. The clutch pedal is kind of soft.
      I'm looking for some...

      One of my A/s.
      by pooch
      As I asked Mitch to make this forum, I suppose I had better put this first post in.

      I am a 28/29 Model A addict.

      I had a stocker, but where I live, it is too dangerous to drive a slow car.

      This is my third A rod, and it turned out to drive just how I hoped it would.

      The only thing I have to do now is remove the rear buggy...

      New Paint
      by carolinamudwalker
      When I was young I bought a new white p/u truck. An older gentleman told me to get a cement block & throw it as hard as I could in the bed of the truck. What does this have to do with a model A? Well I just installed my newly painted front fenders very carefully wearing new cotton gloves. When finished I tripped over the creeper that was stored vertically against the wall. Yep, it gouged that...

      Clutch Disc
      by pAAt
      Where do I buy a quality clutch disc ? Looked on Ebay, Snyders, Berts, Brattons, and possibly decided on Brattons SKU 11400. Possible leads on a place to buy a quality, sure fire, head ache free disc ? Thanks, Pat
