    As I look at the pictures I'd say the car is perfect other than maybe a little better upholstery. Something worn though. As I look at the pictures I think of the touring car (never saw it, just know it was a Model A) that the father of one of my wife's staff owns. He is divesting his cars and the touring car was in parts. I tried different times to at least go look at it but..........I found out that "dad" doesn't want a hot rodder to get it. His son knows that I am not a restorer. I ended up buying the Studebaker in my avatar having given up on the Model A. I suspect that now he would just like to move all of the parts out. I have no room for another car, even disassembled plus I am getting old and don't like carrying parts to the attic of the shop for storage. I think that touring is perfect!!!!

    Man that thing is sweet! Wouldn't change a thing.
    Hopefully the new owner is on the HAMB and can share more?
    @Ryan what became of the hood from a few posts back?

    I asked Keith about that a while ago and he said he was holding onto it for a future project.

    Several months ago, another '28-'29 Ford Touring was put in the spotlight on the Jalopy Journal. I remember it had swinging pedals, but definitely was a driver, with a Flathead. A very impressive survivor, that I thought of as being a perfect example of what you want to have in a dry climate for getting in and going places. Maybe taking the dog, or the kids. This build appears to have been inspired by it. As a matter of fact, if my memory is not playing tricks on me, Ryan was responsible for putting that on the Journal. Wonder if he was so impressed, we are seeing a version of the best elements being used in this one. I know Mister Tardel's son is building it, but who do you reckon will drive it? Fess up Ryan. What do you say to that. Or, am I just whistling past the old car boneyard? Even if I am wrong, it's another car that turns me on, being damn near as close to perfect, for what it is, as it gets. Well done, both of you!
