  • Is This A Man Cave?

    My friend up north has his new garage just about done, and what a nice thing it is. The hand rail came from a mansion in Minneapolis that was being remodeled into condo's. The ceiling is tall enough to stack cars if he had some heavy duty racks. LOL
    The little yellow car on stands is a 1/2 scale Model T rebuilt into a baby Stutz Bearcat. I think Charlie would sell it.

    The lower level has a bathroom and a brew room for his son to make homemade beer. The stairs lead up to two large guests bedrooms and a sitting area where he can look out the doors at the deer and other wildlife. The deck hasn't been built yet, but that's what the sliding doors are for.

      He has propane heat and also a wood stove. He has at least 80 acres and is next to government land, so he has all the firewood he needs. I recall Charlie saying he'd keep the garage about 50* during the winter, which would feel real nice after stepping in from outside. He'll turn up the heat while working in the garage.

          Update on my Model A
          by copgib
          Well my brother picked up my model A from the mechanic after a test drive with him. He told me the car runs real nice and he decided to trailer it to his house since the mechanic lives about 2-3 hours away from his house. After talking to my brother, I don't know whether to be excited or depressed. First after telling me the car runs real nice he started on the problems, he noticed that he had to...

          I did some research
          by copgib
          I have asking around trying to locate someone close to my location that can help me when I need it on my Model A. I contacted one guy that was refered to me by another Model Aer. Unfortunately he no longer works on them and has another fulltime job now. So while checking around my area I remembered we have one salvage yard in town. I have only been there once, so I decided to go. I met the owner named...

          Good News For Me
          by copgib
          I have mentioned in the past that I will be picking up my 1930 Model A Coupe up in Louisana the first week of May. I will meet my brother who will be coming from Texas with my car. My mechanic has been working on it since October 2017, on and off. He is a retired mechanic that owned his own shop and had worked on many Model A's. He told my brother he loved working on my car but forgot how much work...

          Two Model A's found in a garage. no pictures
          by George Miller
          Years a go a friend came to me and said he found a 2 door Model A that he wanted. But there was a 1930 four door there also. He said the guy would only sell both. So I got the four door, he got the tudor. The problem was we had to take the wall down on the lean too that was attached to the garage, to get his tudor out. Then the guy made us put it back up after we got the car out. He did not help....

          Totally disillusioned
          by carolinamudwalker
          I watched an old show from the history channel called 'THE CARS THAT MADE AMERICA GREAT' I am totally disillusioned. Henry did not build the model A. He fought it until the day he became demented. He built the model "T" and the assembly line. He would not listen to his son and drove Ford motor company to near bankruptcy. I hear " Keep the car as henry built it" all the...

          Wood bending, How it's done
          by Terry, NJ

          If you have changed yours, who did you get it from? How long have you had it and have you had any problems with it?
