Baba bought Baba new in 1949. My Uncle used to drive it to school. When Baba passed in 1976 my Uncle had him for about 2 years. My brother talked my uncle out of it then we did a trade for my Triumph TT Special. I've had it since 1982. It was stock except for having a 235 car motor. I picked up a 1974 Camaro from a junk yard and about 10 years ago put all of the Camaro drive line and running gear into it.
That is a long history with one car,thanks Dana. HRP
my dad bought this new in late 1929, Woodland CA.
I’ve had it since 1958. It was my high school car, much the same, but now nicer. Still Merc wheels, big and little bias ply whites, and four cylinder motor.
That is one nice Model A. HRP
My brother is in the heat & air business and he traded a system & instillation for a new home for a 1928 roadster pickup, the story was told the truck was purchased new in Greenville, South Carolina and had remained in the same family until Henry traded for it in 2012.
Wow since 1929 that’s will be hard to beat. I can see why you have kept it so long, good looking car.
Brenda, is Henry at Henry's AC your brother?
This was a car i had for 50 years, Let it go Tom
My great uncle bought my ‘62 new. He put a Sears tach in it, I put the Americans on. It’s just a 283/glide car but it’s original.
I bought my 63 SS my senior year in ‘96. It’s kinda raggedy right now so I won’t post a pic.
Yes sir, that's her Brother. HRP
Dad bought this ‘57 in ‘62. It’s been a hot rod since then, the only numbers that match are the VIN tag and the title. He handed it over to me about 3 years ago right before he passed. It was worn out. It’s almost done now.
