  • Your best 1930s/Great Depression movie?

    There are many out there with many of our beloved Model As in them.

    Can't decide myself whether it's "The Legend of Bagger Vance" or "Places in the Heart" both with Model As and set in the Great Depression. I believe one is just as much part as the other when it comes to that era of our History.

    Do you have a favorite?

            Model A farming plant - is there anything like this?
            by Hoogah
            Over the past couple of weeks, I've been involved in preparations for a clearing sale on a farm that belonged to two bachelor brothers. The last of the brothers passed away about 18 months ago. Both were well into their 80s when they died. What is unique about these blokes is that they farmed in some kind of time warp for almost all of their lives.

            Is This a California Duster?
            by Tom Wesenberg
            I've heard guys mention buying a California Duster to clean their cars, but it's been years since I've owned a car worthy of dusting. I bought this duster at Goodwill in Arizona this winter, and it works great, but I was wondering if you clean it by using a vacuum cleaner, or can they be washed, or do you only shake the dust out?

            by Grit Kid
            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

            Model Ford heirloom
            by ELLIS 11B
            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...
