The Ford Model A as a Daily Driver for a Year

Jonathan Klinger's coworkers thought he was bluffing when he said he wanted to drive a Ford Model A every day for a year -- including winter ... in northern Michigan. But he followed through, and he's been doing it in a project he calls "365 Days of A," documenting his progress on a blog of the same name. RoundAbout host Craig Cole went for a walkaround of the Model A that Jonathan's been driving for nearly a year.

Roof 101 Cyclone OHV Model A Ford Engine Conversion - Clip #2
This is the 2010 4 Port OHV conversion for the Model A and B Ford. It's modeled after the 1929 R&R Cyclone originally created by Robert Roof of Anderson, Indiana, USA. Charlie Yapp, owner of Scalded Dog Speed Parts contacted Jim Roof, Robert's grandson, and Jim became the new "Chief Designer" and Charlie the producer. The end result is nothing short of a wildly successful mechanical achievement . The power and inefficiency are huge and surprising. The parts are mostly off the shelf at your local dealer. If you get a chance to see one take a close look at the technology, it's different and edgy but still look and sound like a period racing engine. On Our website. . .www.secretsofspeed.com. . .you will be able to find the Dyno chart links and much more. . .like contact info. Yapp also manufactures the famous Riley Two Port OHV and the Lion Speed Head.





Very Rare 1931/32 Model A Pickup Barn Find ! 4/18/09
This is a very rare and hard to find Late Production 1931 Model A . In 1932 the Model B was not ready for customers until late April until then Ford sold these Late 31' Model A's as 1932's. You can tell the difference between the earlier A's by looking at the all steel roof as well as the wider bed both of these characteristics are found in the real 32' trucks . If you notice not only is the Bed wider but it has a full steel floor that rest over the wood deck. This truck is a beauty and runs great but to make her truly road worthy she needs papers and working lights as well as some newer tires the ones that are on it hold air but have cracks.

How to start up and drive a 1925 Ford Model T
While still in the Ely neighborhood of Fairlee, Vermont, we get a quick lesson on how to start up and drive a 1925 Ford Model T. I am not sure how comprehensive a lesson it is, but I think with a bit of practice, I could drive this car. Once the car is started, we take a drive down Old Federal Route 5, which has been truncated, since the new Route 5 was built in the 1930's. The road is also unpaved, which I am sure is the way its been for years. Imagine being on this road 80 years ago and seeing this car coming along down the road; this would have been a pretty common sight. At the end of the road, we turn around in a neighbors driveway, where we see a couple of newer, yet vintage, cars. I am not sure what the white car is, but the Chevrolet pick-up looks like it's from the 1960's. Enjoy the view from the car, as well as the lesson on starting and driving it. If you have any questions about the video, feel free to message me. Comments are welcome. The video was taken on August 25th, 2013.





oil change (shocking) after sitting for 50 years Ford Model A
I bought a 1930 (not 31 like I said in the video) Model A 5 window coupe all original except for a dropped axle, a Mallory dual point distributor, some dual electrode spark plugs, four blade radiator fan, 15" steel reversed center wheels with slicks and a lawnmower fuel tank bolted to the dash (reasons to believe it was a hot rod). It wouldn't turn over when I got it so I took the plugs out and poured some Mistory oil in the holes and let it sit for a few weeks, I turned it back n forth till I was able to give it a few full turns, checked the oil level, put some gas in it, hooked up a battery and it turned over fine with the starter but no fire, pulled out the distributor to find a homemade shaft extention that wasn't long enough so I rebuilt the distributor, made a new shaft, rebuilt the carb, and now it fired up! I called Adrian to come over and check it out, he said, "It sounds good but don't try driving it untill you change the oil". Since the oil looked to be ok and at the correct level, I drove it up and down the alley. I called him again to let him know how it went and the first thing he asked was, "Did you change the oil?" So I got to work, took the drain plug out and oil dribbled out no matter what i did it wouldn't drain out so I took the oil pan off and found the oil caked at the bottom of the pan, lesson learned.... Always pull the oil pan OFF to make sure you don't run your newly acquired Old motor with a pan full of crud, I hope this helps,,, more videos of this model A to come so stay tunned! thanks for whatching. thanks for the great advice Adrian. To see it running check http://youtu.be/z5V0oXP8roE

1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Gordon Tronson In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as "Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all your naughty bits tingle.
