From Burke to Mark

A month ago, Mark's father-in-law sold him his 1930 Ford Model A car. The current odometer reads 83,000 miles and the former Wisconsinite car is now a nearby Minnesotan car!

  1. Nice car. Nice hobby to have... can't afford it! Are they friends or are you just good at harassing people? hehe...

    Bon weekend! Profitez-en!

  9. I think old cars would be a great hobby, but I am not good enough around cars to chance it.

  10. I like old cars. I never owned this model but owned a 1935 Chevy that was my first car and it had mechanical brakes.

    I did got to the Brookville Car Show a month ago or longer and they had lots of Model A's in hot rod form which I don't much like.

    My neighbor had a stroke right after finishing the restoration of a nice Model A Ford. It was a beautiful thing and in mint condition. Then Larry had the stroke and has been in a kind of rest home ever since. I think he had the stroke and woke up from it a different person. His wife could not care for him as he had to be helped to do everything.

    This is a very nice photograph.

    To answer your question about the Memorial Hall I left this comment back on the site.

    Actually, I just found out that it has been completely remodeled inside. I don't know how to get in to have a look around but will check on it.

  13. What a beautiful old car Leif, in excellent condition by the look of it. I was a bit like Birdman, wondering how much a car like this would cost?
