The front bumper on the Model A had been bent since I got the car so we decided to have a try and straightening the bar and see how it looks.
As you see after a bit of a wood issue the bumper is now pretty straight.
Once we got the wood situation sorted out we got the bumper back in pretty good shape,
When I first imported the Model A over three years ago I promised my Aunt Noreen a ride in the car and finally today I delivered on the promise 🙂
Had quite a good picture of the A taken on the way into the recent Berkshire Motor Show

I’ve been meaning to sort out the perished windows channels on the Model A, so I headed over to John Cochran’s for some expert assistance.
Once we had removed the door trims it was very interesting to find the details from the trim manufacturer from 20 years ago! I may research the detail to see if I can get a bead on who owned the car back then. I’ve tried writing to the owner listed on the title but sadly got no reply.
It was great to drive home with slightly less rattles thanks to John!
Gave the A a bit of a wash and brush up after the indignity of the recovery truck a few weeks back.

Here’s some dash cam video of the A, on a local jaunt 🙂
Popped over to see my good friend Mr Cochran this evening.
John has a really nice 1929 Model A Fordor Leatherback that he imported from the States which hadn’t run since the 70’s.
This car is possibly the most original Model A I’ve ever seen, the car had been sat in a barn for many years. As you can see and hear, John now has the car running beautifully!
