  • Model A's are Safer and Outlast a New Ferrari

    This is what can happen when you have too much horsepower. What a waste. This car was 1 hour old.

    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

    Tom, Stupid question, but did anyone die in that mess or did it just catch fire and burn?

      The owner just took delivery of his new $244,000 Ferrari, and within an hour he lost control, left the road, and it crashed and burned, but I don't think the driver was even hurt, or at least not badly hurt.

          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.

          Slim pickings
          by pooch
          Not much early ford stuff at Cessnock swap last weekend.

          A reasonably good (for over here) T tudor body for $2200 AUD.

          Just a few Model A wheels and various small bits, nothing too exciting.

          Was an older restored 53 chev 4 door sedan on full rego for $13K, if you like that brand. if it was a 53 Ford in the same conditon, they would have been asking $50K.

          A few Yellowstone and Glacier Natl Park photos
          by tbirdtbird
          60 Dallas club people and 15 Model As just got back from the parks after a 10 day tour.
          The buses are 1937 Whites. The yellow ones are in Yellowstone, the red ones in Glacier. There were over 100 yellow ones in the beginning. After decades, they were falling into disrepair. Ford re-framed and re-powered them, and left the coaches alone for that vintage look. They bear both the White emblem and...

          Don't toss those tapered kitchen table legs.
          by pooch

          Always hard to find metal bows, and I would never chop a restorable set.

          This is what you can do with kitchen table legs.

          I first flattened them to an oval, then sectioned a piece out where the bend is.

          Then squared it a touch on the inside of the bend so it would fit in my stretcher machine, and pumped the curve into it.

          The end pieces...

          I started with this. more to come...

          I only wanted the cowl, as I was going to build extended doors, but the door hinge screws were rusted on so I gave the guy another $100 , and I was glad I did when I got around to building it.

          Scored an already boxed A chassis and a few more bits

          HR holden independent front end with discs.
