1930 Ford Model A Pickup and 1929 Ford Model A

The annual Arthritis Foundation car show in Dublin, Ohio is scheduled for this coming weekend and I am raring to go!  But mother nature is threatening to throw a monkey wrench into those plans.  Rain is predicted for most of this week so we shall see how it goes; hopefully it will hold off for at least for one day of the show.  In the meantime I will be sharing some shots from last years show that I haven’t shared with you yet starting with this customized root beer brown (that’s the color listed on the plaque in front) 1930 Ford and his friend the 1929 Ford Model A.

By the way, the 1930 Ford has a 1955 Chrysler 331 Hemi engine for all of you motorheads 😉

    I love the old cars! Ever notice today that most of the sedans all look alike, all SUV’s, etc, but the old cars were all unique!

      I so agree with you. Back then it was about style now it’s safety (we hope) and gas mileage.

        I’m wondering when we will go too far in technology.

        I think that will result in the Terminator movies becoming reality…I so hope not!

    Nice shots. They have very modern engines!

      Some do and some are as original parts as possible.

        We have both, also. A big V8 has a presence in a Model A.

        I’d imagine!

    Beautiful shots. I think the fenders have been built out, too. The tires weren’t as thick back then.

    Fingers crossed you can get the car show in Teri. I still have not found old hood ornaments here. Oh well

      Awww boo! But I’m watching the weather channel like a hawk and it looks like it could be a go. Fingers still crossed!

    Grandpa was the proud owner of a Model A and we’ve pics of him tending to it. It never looked as good as the one in your shot, Teri. 🙂

      Wow! Whatever happened to it?

      • #17 by ChgoJohn on July 10, 2016 - 4:44 pm

        I’ve no idea, Teri. He kept if for ages, even using it to campaign for FDR. 🙂

        Even cooler!

        He had a very well-trained terrier, “Lucky”, that he would use to draw people in — and then hit them with the pro-FDR speech. 🙂

        Have any pics of any of this???

      • #21 by ChgoJohn on July 10, 2016 - 6:28 pm

        Don’t I wish! We’ve been going through a ton of old photos lately. Believe me, if one of these turns up, l’ll be sure to post it.

        Fingers crossed!
