Here is Jerry with a Model A TECH TIP for you. Just click here to see the video.

Here are some important items to keep in your Model A for a long tour...

Rags and paper towels...Leather gloves and latex gloves...Bailing wire & wire cutters...An old sheet to lay on if you need to get under the car...Old clothes...A flashlight...Jute twine...Small knife...3 collapsible safety triangles...Small block of 4X4 wood...Tire chocks...Starter & Bendix...Extra set of Bendix bolts & lock washers...Extra condenser...Cam wrench to adjust carb...Coil & wire...Spare lug nuts...Extra spark plugs...extra carb...Extra headlight, tail light and brake light bulbs...grease...600W oil...Dash to junction box wiring...Of course, if you put all that in your car, there may not be enough room for anybody to sit in it. But at least you won't get stuck.

Whenever driving your Model A through a car wash, always keep the windows closed. Otherwise, you may get a little soggy. However, you may skip your bath that night.

When driving your Model A, never challenge that Corvette in the next lane to race. If you must race, secure at least a 5 mile head start and hope for a heavy wind to help push you.

Make sure that the lug nuts on your Model A are good and tight. Check them often. There's nothing worse than having a wheel fall off while trying to inpress the neighbors.
