Hi All: My first car was a 1929 Model A Ford business coupe with Landau Irons, much to the dismay of our neighbor highway patrol officer who would have lliked me to have purchased a V-8 hot rod. I drove it through my senior year of high school and into my first couple years of university. Was a good car with few problems - only 3! First was when it wouldn’t start (electric or crank) at my buddies house on my way to high school. Simple fix after school- turned out the ignition switch was corroded. Second was the electrical connections in the bulb at the bottome of the steering column. Pulled into the high school parking lot and the thing was smoking like crazy. Disconnected the battery. Fix was a relay for the lights and some fuses. Third was more serious. Driving from Yuma AZ to Phoenix AZ, exceeded 45 mph coming down the hill West of Dateland, and almost immediately started listening to a banging noise coming from the engine. Didn’t know if it was the rods or the crank, but pulled into Dateland (wide spot in the road) to wait for my parents who had given me a 1 hour head start. Dad listened to the racket and decided that we could continue the drive, but at 25 mph max. That was the longest and slowest trip that I have ever done. Fortunately there was a company in Phoenix that could pour babbit bearings, and so we disassembled the engine and had the bearings poured. It seems to me that this is the greatest weakness in these cars. I’m surprised that others are tooling around at over 45 mph with no repercussions. Otherwise, they are great, simple, easy to fix cars. Also learned about metal crystallization - bolts and nut breaking whilst attempting disassembly. Great fun.
