    Great new American Pickers episode last night. I'm sure some of you older guys will know the mans estate they are picking for Model A's.

    Have they gone from motorcycles to Model As?

      I forgot the episode was on, tuning in at the half hour mark, too late for the Model A Lady. I'll have to watch when it re-runs..

        That lady's daughter looked sunburned, not good for a blue eyed blonde I just went thru the cancer crap TAKE CARE when out in the sun.

        It was kinda fun to watch I have to admit, and I'm not really a fan of those two guys anymore.

        Looked like some nice sheetmetal hanging in that one garage anybody know who this is/was? They are still in business selling Model A parts, said 'central Indiana' owner's name was originally Bill (or was it Bob?)

          Going through that with my uncle now. He had a melanoma the size of a leech in his back. How doctors over the last 20 years never spotted it is beyond me. It was removed and a tracer dye applied. Cancer in one of the nodes. PET/MRI next....that sun is a killa!

            It's a 'she'. Vanessa is Bill's (RIP) daughter, and she is still selling off Model A parts, and still has lots of good stuff, and is very knowledgeable. A lot of fine point cars have parts from Bill's and Vanessa's collections on them. I have also bought parts off of them in the last 30 years.

            Model A farming plant - is there anything like this?
            by Hoogah
            Over the past couple of weeks, I've been involved in preparations for a clearing sale on a farm that belonged to two bachelor brothers. The last of the brothers passed away about 18 months ago. Both were well into their 80s when they died. What is unique about these blokes is that they farmed in some kind of time warp for almost all of their lives.

            Pocket watches and Model A’s
            by Curly
            I stopped at an Antique Shop in Anchorage yesterday and found a couple interesting pocket watches from the Model A era. If you have a pocket watch you want to learn more about go to— “Pocket
            Watch Database”. Type in the serial number and you’ll get the history on your specific watch. PM me the SN# if it gives you trouble and I’ll run it.

            by Westsail
            Hi, Guys. I'm sorry for dropping off the edge of the world. I've missed interacting with the group. Firstly, I'm fine; no disasters or health problems, etc.; thanks for caring! In retrospect, what happened isn't really surprising. After driving my Model A in a heavily populated area for almost 1000 miles, I came to the sudden realization that I wasn't comfortable sacrificing the acceleration, braking,...

            Picked these up at auction yesterday. Do not say reprint anywhere so assume they are original. Anyone familiar with these?

            Movies with Model As
            by DougInAustin
            I'm sure a lot of us have some extra time lately while staying at home due to Coronavirus, to watch some movies. A couple of movies available on Netflix I saw that feature a lot of Model As - I am sure there are more movies that include Henry's Lady.

            Lawless (2012)- rated 7.3 out of 10. It's ok; does have a lot of violence as you might expect for a 1930s bootlegger movie. There is...

            Old Copies of the Model A Trader
            by BAAP
            I was wondering if anybody out there had or new where i could get copies of the Model A Trader? Specifically I'm looking for Vol 1, No8, from 1991. I went to the Model A Trader Website and e-mailed a request last week but i have not gotten any reply. Any leads would be great.

            Thank you
