My Dad had one of those when I was a kid. Somewhere along the way it disappeared and years later I asked him what ever happened to his Model A. “We had to eat, son” was his reply.

Dad’s been gone thirteen years now but that was the day I started looking at him a little differently...

Thanks for posting, it generated some fine memories.

I think an old Jeep or deuce & a half would be more useful & just as easy to work on & no more susceptible to an EMP either.

A friend had one and didn't know that the shift rod could be disengaged and rotated up against the dash. I am not sure why I knew about it but I did it without his notice and watching him reach for it was priceless.

I have had old timers tell me that these pizza cutter style wheels are great on mud. But if you think about what road used to look like they had to be.

Fun facts:
The first vehicle I ever flipped was a Baja bug.

I grew up on a import car pull a part. My dad always kept about 100 VWs. If he had a bug that sold most of the interior and body panels he would bend up and tube frame and weld it on the floor pan. And sell it as a buggies but he did many Baja builds.

My dad was the Volkswagen guy. When my wifeís father used to come over to buy VW parts my wife who was a kid used to play with me while her father pulled parts. We didnít know this until her dad heard my last name and asked if I was kin to the VW guy. Before that I thought I had met my wife at college.

Last fun fact that will hurt your feelings. Dad would bring in VW vans. Yes, even 23 window safaris. He pull the 1800-2200cc motors out and use them to cut sheet metal out off to repair bugs. Before he would crush them I got to smash them up with hammers and stuff because the Van and buses were worthless. In todayís money Dad said he has crushed at least a million dollars worth of 23 window safaris.

yup, no paved roads and they even used some of those vehicles as tractors.. i remember they had a special wheel they'd put on a model T to run a belt to run equipment.. but less surface area for the same weight vehicle means more pounds per square inch.. lets them "cut" into the mud.. i think the downside is those tires had to run at higher pressures because of this, and blowouts were more common, i could be wrong on that
