  • Some what model A

    picture of a 4 port I made a few years back. It did good at the hill climb years ago. It had a model A engine with a high compression head, high lift cam and 4 intake ports.

    This same car has my home built over head now.

                    Not sure what the back of this ute is.

                    Not a Geelong ute.

                    Probably a one off farmer's build.

                    Canadian deluxe folding stanchions for a 28/29.

                    A feral 34 or 33 (I don't know the difference) chopped ute.

                    Dunno what body style it started life as, but it looked a treat driving in.

                    Great Support and thankfulness
                    by Bill G
                    Yesterday, being Thanksgiving in the US, I sort of got a little carried away with feeling thankful for just about everything. Health being one of them. A dear friend of ours is in rehab after suffering a heart attack, and I feel rather lucky, even with the aches and pains that go along with getting older.

                    Two and a half years ago I bought a Model A. It is something my wife and I have...

                    Here is an interesting site on Fords. The link will take you to photos of A’s in the era, but there is a lot of other good information there as well.

                    FL. has 12 of these neat restaurants We had lunch in Lakeland. They had 25 beers on tap and no I did not try all of them. The napkin holders disappear but they order new ones a thousand at a time. The elevated A would start up, give a puff of smoke and sound the horn every 15-20 minutes. NEAT PLACE

                    This article talks about the use of modern points for touring over the original style. I strongly disagree with that statement and I believe this comes from the Les Andrews red book. We can add that to all the other mistakes in that book.
