Been awhile

Hi

It's been a while since I was last on. Been busy have a photo of our Model A Tudor. 95% complete. Condition Good with minor rust but still needs lots of work but it will be fun. As you can see it still has it's number plate from when it was last registered in '57. Can anybody tell me the correct colours for the North Dakota plates as would like to restore plate to original.


Thanks and will chat soon.

Don't know what the colors would be as I am from Ohio, but I'd replace those tires if I we're you (joke). I'll bump it back to the top. Any help for TurboDave you North Dakotans?

I think he might mean that 95% of the original parts are there?

If you've seen the conditions Model A's are usually found in I'd say thats more than 95 haha.

I LIKE those tires. They'll NEVER blow out. They'll NEVER go bald. And they're perfect for driving on railroad tracks.

Here's one I was looking at before I got the Nashty. TurboDave's looks a lot better than this one.

Been Awhile

There must be a heap of Model A,s in North Dokata as the guy i got mine from has two more Tudors in similar condition as mine.Maybe you guys should go on a tin hunt there. I was thinking about an early 60,s look with a 3inch chop, chrome reverse, whitewalls, 283 chev with dual quads, white interior and either a chromed 9inch or polished quickchange. So how do you think that sounds. I already have the engine and the 9inch, but if any body would like to donate a quickchange i would be very happy.

License plate


If you like that page there are more

http://www.worldlicenseplates.com/
Arranged by country, state and decades/ years.

Home Brew should like that one.

I submitted it to the KB a while back but I guess it wasn't worthy

As far as the completeness of turbodaves car, I sold a 29 sedan delivery in about that state for 4800.00 to a restorer. I should have kept that car. It would have been a perfect powerrod

Later, mikey
