I hate to say it but that Model A hogs all of the attention and doesn't give your 6 anything for leftovers haha.
As well it should!!!!

The owner paints planes for Boeing. His home paint booth is professional as hell.

Forgot to get a close-up of the laced visor. heavily silver flaked!

-wax (Pinnacle Souvern Paste Wax applied with a Lakes gold jewling pad)
-vacuum (metrovac 4.0 hp, single hose)
-leather cleaner (wolfgang)
-leather conditioner (wolfgang)

I've been pretty upset with the new forum format which has caused me to be quite lately (Seriously, why can't the forum even figure out basic text formatting?). Plus there isn't too much going on with the Mazder as it's been very reliable, comfortable and keeps looking like a modern car.

With that in mind, the garage has now filled up and pushed the Mazda out into the cold of street parking.

Here's the new vehicle which will be the summer driver, a '51 Chevy Fleetline Aerosedan (they were all called Aerosedans, regardless of how many doors it actually had).

3-speed manual
6-volt electrical
Every day is arm day! (no power steering or brakes)
27,000 original miles

The new forum format? You'll get used to it. I miss the old forum format...


Where and how do you get those kind of cars?!? I wish I was near your place. I'll always take a look at those cars before going to bed.

Classic cars in America are pretty easy to find. However, just as anywhere else in the world that has a local manufacturing for a product, finding what you are looking for in the condition you want and for the price you want is the hard part!

Our car group is specifically for cars made before 1960. There are a number of guys who drive Ford Model A or Model T cars daily even though they are about 90 years old (usually with a more modern motor from the 1940's)

Had a wonderful kind soul do a hit and run the other day. This had to be one of the worlds tightest parking spaces so one can understand why they had to hit me to get out of this.

I mean, to get out of that spot you would have to be like the blind man in an orgy, you're going to have to feel your way around....

Body shop says that the minimum materials order for spraying this will be enough if I had a lip or something else to body match and they would throw that in, but I can't think of anything else to body-match in color....

Ah come on!

So frustrating... Good luck with the repair job.

Right! That is so frustrating. I'd like to think that some kid did that and panicked and being immature, run away.

I know someone who was parking his car accidentally bumped on another car. After he parked properly, he went out to look for the owner of the car. He asked for an apology and requested that he pays for the damage on his next payday.

They agreed on it and went on their separate ways. Of course, he paid in full on their agreed date.

The damage is not so much, but just a scratch.
