My dad fell in love with Model A's when he was 7 years old, in 1954. He vowed at that time to own one of his own. The black and white picture is him in the mid-60's with the first one he ALMOST bought. His dad wouldn't let him buy it. He finally got his first Model A in 1977; when I was 6 years old, and he's had Model A's almost continually ever since. His current car is a flathead powered coupe, sporting paint from 1962.
