Double Fatal Model A vs Nissan Titan - Graham WA
A sad story from May 7, 2005. The driver and passenger of the Model A were
killed when the driver of Titan failed to yeild when making a left turn.
The eldery couple was returning home from an antique car event. Several
other friends drove past the wreck in their own classic cars.
The driver died at the scene. The passenger, his wife died at the
hospital. Seats belts might have allowed for a different out come, but
were not installed in the Model A. Because of the age of the vehicle, seat
belts were not required.
I do not know if the driver of the Titan was later charged with anything.

A Dad's A - 1929 Model A
Frank Maniatis so treasured his 1929 Ford Model A Roadster that 75 years

Higgins' heart -- and her garage. From cross-country pleasure trips to
lumber hauling, makeshift repairs and patched-up fenders to a full
restoration -- and even a tearful homecoming after it had been stolen --
this family heirloom has just about seen it all. For more visit
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.

Ford Model T Half engine
I cut this T model Ford engine in half in 1957 using 11 hacksaw blades.
The only part not cut with the hacksaw was the camshaft as it was too hard
and had to ground through.
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
thanks for the great advice Adrian.
