Start-up and Drive 1929 Ford Model A Roadster - Flathead and Rumble seat
I thought you'd like a look at this nicely restored 1929 Ford Model A
Roadster. It has been restored to original condition and is still powered
by the flathead four cylinder. It is in great condition all the way around
and even has the rumble seat out back. We started it up and took it for a
little spin, just so you could see what they sound like. I hope you find it
interesting...thanks for watching!

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

1930 Model A Ford Cold Start - 15 Degrees Fahrenheit
This is a video from the morning of January 29, 2011 after sitting outside
all night. The temperature is about 15 degrees at the time I fired up the
Mighty Model A. Cold weather has yet to phase it!

Model A First time start-up 2 The Result
This is the result of half a years work since the last clip was taken. But
this is only a mock-up. So, now its time to tear it down for paint and
interior work. Because of problems with the chassis number I have to change
the frame, to another one, imported directly from California.
I plan on having it completely done by early 2010, for showing it at
Grensetreffen, which is a Model-A meet in Båstad, Sweden. Its the biggest
meet of Model-As outside the US. Check our website:
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.
