  • RG&JS Quiz

    FYI, a few years back I created a quiz generator program for RG&JS areas. See links below. By now the pages look a little dated and stoic, but the information is sound. I tried to get some interest among fine-point guys, including some judges, but got apathy and non-communication instead. So I shelved the project. I'm throwing it out now to hear your thoughts.

    Sample quiz pages:

    EDIT: 5/31/2017, added another quiz page for area 5.

      To make it fun and easy to learn the RG&JS.

      The quizzes were a way for judges and participants to learn and prepare for annual meets. They could help new apprentice judges learn the content. They could be used to brush-up and reacquaint with forgotten details. They could entice new owners into the world of judging contests, or simply provide another avenue to learn more about Model A's. Mostly, quizzes appeal to geeky guys that want to challenge themselves and dig a little deeper. I see virtually no value for the mainstream casual owner. It's just for geeks.

          You can keep changing your answers until you get all the correct answers. Then look them up in the RG&JS to make sure.

            I thought I would do better. I think my score would have been better if it were judged on the 2011 revision. The only question that got me confused was #5. The picture shows 4 types of snaps, the second paragraph under tool bag says there were 4 types of fasteners but the answer was 3. ??????? It's a trick question LOL....:.. Great quiz. I guess my future does not have me judging which is wise. Now I have a task to update my tools.

                Model A Horror Movie
                by newshirt
                If you're in a horror movie, you make poor decisions. It's what you do. If you're in the Model A hobby, you read the RG&JS. And to add to the bloody gore of your experience, I have included another quiz to my list. It's for Area 5. Yeah... I know... Quentin Tarantino!

                See the "Model A Fine Point" subforum for my growing list of slashers; I will update them under the "RG&JS...

                PAGE NUMBERING
                by GranTudor
                Why is today's Page No. 1? If the pages were numbered from the start of this Forum, then the numbers of the pages would not change and the item you noted on say page 22 would always be on page 22. Simple notes in a book would keep your info at hand at all times without doing a search every time for the same info. **** **** is terrible to find any info that one read pages ago. Think logically for this...

                First let me start by saying I am a Fine Pointer scoring 494 points on our roadster, Asst. head judge in Branson, a National Judge and member of the JSC for MARC.. As i am by nature a purist I personally am thrilled to see a forum like this..KUDOS to you Mitch...Bottom line is that it is new and different and for those that choose modification good for you. I feel anything done to a car that is...

                New Member Introduction
                by kevinf
                Hello all,

                I wanted to introduce myself to the community. I am new to the forum and the Model A world and live in the Detroit area. I purchased my first Model A about three months ago which is a 1931 Deluxe Roadster. I was not even planning on getting one, but my wife and I ran across this one when we were at someplace and it was love at first site. Through looking at reference books...

                Calling all A experts and judges
                by Foxfire
                I was talked into showing my Model A at the RENO Meet. I was apprehensive but glad I did and now need to decipher the judging sheets to correct the things they found needing attention or changing. I did go over the sheets with the JS&RG and was able to find some answers but some do not appear in the Standards or are not clear enough for "ME" to figure out. Thus I'm going to the pros...

                Generator Cutout, What's Wrong Here?
                by Tom Wesenberg
                I'm working on a generator that needs to be restored. Mention was made about a bearing noise, but there was no mention of no output, so I assumed it worked OK. The first thing I check was the cutout, and find the input terminal shorted to ground. It looks like a homemade bracket with just a small thin piece of black plastic that looks like a tiny piece off a TV dinner. You can see the bracket is bent...

                A Branson highlight
                by Mitch
                So I was sitting at the VFF tent one day and up comes this kid carrying a cracked cylinder head. I asked him to take a load off and have a seat with us. The day before I had a VFF’er drop off a pair of Jan-Feb 30 eye brow front fenders at our spot to try and sell. Well after a few minutes this boy told me the info of when these fenders were used right off the cuff. I quickly realized that Stephen...
