    • Spring in Alaska

      I love this time of year. I did several project to my Model A over the winter. Modern shocks, new 19 inch radials, and a couple cosmetic things. I have been chomping at the bit to get out and see how it feels. IT DRIVES AMAZING! I don't know if its the shocks or the new wheels but wow it hugs the road and feels great. I do need to adjust my doors, the passenger door flew open around a corner, my wife was not too thrilled about that. All in all its in good shape for the season.

      All that winter work is paying off, enjoy your A this summer. All I ask is that you send some of that Alaskan spring weather down here.

        I rode my bicycle yesterday in shorts and a t-shirt. April typically throws one last snow storm but so far its warm with a blue sky.

      I have heard a lot of good reports on the 19 inch radials. I am eagerly awaiting a report on the 21 inch radials.

          I'm shocked at the difference. I had modern radials but these are smoother and definitely faster than 16 inch wheels. 3.5 mph faster.

          The biggest change I saw was it road fantastic and felt like I added power steering, plus they look really good.

        According to the song...I thought that when it's “springtime in Alaska" it's forty below.
        Enjoy those new tires Curly. ! Jeff

          The first thing that jumped into my head when I saw that title was the same thing.That one line from the old Johnny Horten song,I always call the song,North to Alaska,but I think it really has a different title.
