1930 Speedster

The racer shown below is made from a 1930 Model A just like mine. It showed up at our annual start up party. The start up party is an effort by our club members to start an A which has not run for a long time. We have succeeded every year for the last 25 years.

Let’s go home

January 6, 2014

After 2 arduous days on 12/27/13 and 12/28/13 driving 8 hours both days, loading and unloading, the below little coupe is now tucked into my garage protected from the current bitter snow storm. The top picture was taken in Oklahoma as we, my friend Dave S and I, were getting ready for the 8 hour trek back to St Louis. The remaining pictures are of the 1930 Ford Model A. It is a nice classic (83 years young) but has some issues which I believe are fairly easy to fix. I believe with some effort I can add a little value to the car and if so it may turn out to be a good investment. For starters antique cars usually have a low price in weak economic times and get overpriced when the economy gets hot; we shall see. In the meantime this old man will have something to putter around with both driving it and improving it.
