  • "Culture during the Model A Era."

    Hey Mitch!!!! An addition to ponder....
    "Culture during the Model A Era." for the Model A Forum that would include almost everything that also happened, worn, included, seen, heard during the Model A era??????? Members post old photos now, advertisements and newspaper articles.

    Think about it, don't lose any more sleep than necessary. It wasn't my idea so if you do lose sleep again don't blame me, I won't mention his name who's idea it is but he just returned from vacation and his initials are BudP.

    I like this idea - i have messaged mr apple several times about music and fashion and he gave me many wonderful links and tips. Its a very interesting era from prohibition to depression to slightly later dust bowl. Rural life vs city life was drastically different as well. Would be neat to hear from any members who lived it or stories from their parents as well! Since its cultural it doesnt necessarily have to be ford related. Maybe how they survived, were politics talked about?, dinner conversations, etc.

      Way to go, Ed! I'll be posting pics of some of the 1930 stuff I got at auctions and off EBay and which I use as "staging props" when I show my 1930 Tudor.

    Ways to put tunes into your A.

    I use an Sony MP player with a Bluetooth JBL Charge 3. I have had other Bluetooth speakers but JBL has the sound that's needed to overcome any engine/auto noise. I mount the speaker with a Velcro strip center below the seat on the wood base, it's out of site and no one can see where the music is coming from. Both the MP player and Speaker have an 8 hour play charge.

    Jazz and Blues (post-WWI/pre-WWII) 20's/30s is widely available off Amazon. Load them into the PC and download them into your MP player and you're good to go.

    Some CDs are crap but here are some suggestions:

    Any Boswell Sisters CD are great. They were the Andrew Sisters before there was the Andrew Sisters,



    I'll have more recommendations later, I have about 40 CDs of the 20s/30s.

                    Another use for the MP player and speaker.

                    1926 Victrola .....although it doesn't work anymore, I take the front screen off, put the speaker inside, close it back up and turn on the MP player and I have 8 hours of era music in the kitchen.

                      1933 Silvertone (still works) that has been wired to the speaker from a CD player, turn them both on and it's like listening to the same music quality that once was.The fan is 1926.

                        Art deco purse from the 1930's. Hat pieces are representative of the early 1930's. Raggedy Ann is from the 1920's and is 3 feet tall. Girls clown doll is from about 1910: I purchased it from the great grand daughter of the original purchaser. Baseball is from the early 1940's. It is yellowed because it was painted with shellac to preserve it many years ago. Baseball glove is from the late 1930's. Tic-Tac-Toe game is contemporary but representative of children's games in the 1920's to present. Car is a 1930 Tudor and using these "props" was an idea taken from the seller.

                                    The use of Model A's during Prohibition?
                                    by mhsprecher
                                    I have agreed to develop a talk for our local club on the use of Model A's during Prohibition. I have yet to do much research on this topic independently, but I thought that I would see whether anyone on the VFF has any information, articles, recollections or tall tales about the use of Model A's as rum runners or anything of the like during Prohibitioh.

                                    What I am about to say, may either bring the gnashing of teeth or absolute, side-splitting hilarity, to the Model T purists. And come to think of it, the Model T modifiers as well.
                                    Personally, I prefer the Model T in its pure form. However every so often, I have a stroke of genius. Or maybe I just have a stroke?
                                    I realize, Model Ts have been re-powered by many different types of engines....

                                    So my fiancé just got this model Ford as a heirloom and it was her papaws, he stopped in the process halfway of completing it to make it out to be a woody of some sort because the body is all wood, from scratch from his own creation. But was told it’s a model T, I’m just the nominated one to do the restoration and thrilled to have the pleasure of doing it up for her since it was her papaws and...

                                    by Gary Karr
                                    I'm currently in Cusco, Peru that has an elevation of 11,150 feet above sea level. That got me thinking about driving Model A's in high elevations. Several years ago, I drove my Tudor over the Beartooth pass from Redlodge, MT to the NE entrance to Yellowstone Park at an elevation of almost 11,000 feet above sea level. When I got to the top, I stopped to take some pictures. People asked me how I was...

                                    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
