I hate to use language like this here, but I will be at w**k. The Can-Am is on my list as I hear so many good reports about it. Not this year though. Happy touring one and all.

Look at them sidemounts. Look at them orange wheels. Look at that paint job. It's a Model A for sure! :-)

Tom, axle looks to be T, look at the spindles. Also the headlight bar and lights looks T to me. Yes the side mount should not be there but what the heck!

I don't get why some T guys are so prejudiced against Model A's. I really, really like Model T's, but,.....I really, really like Model A's too! If ya' like vanilla ice cream, isn't it okay to like chocolate ice cream too? Sheeeesh,.......harold

I have heard they call them a3 legged Model A!!!


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Wayne Murray - Anacortes, WA on Friday, September 27, 2013 - 08:55 pm:

I couldn't agree more. I can tell it's a Model A because of the "oval" rear window in the tan colored Sport Roadster top. Plus the chrome radiator shell, bumpers and chrome headlight rims. It looks to be about a '32 or '33 to me. It could have come from Central America due to the Pinata wedged between the spare and hood. That's a dead giveaway. Most Model A Roadsters in that good condition go for really big bucks...probably about $25-30K on a-Bay. I wouldn't kick it out of my parking strip out front. W

That "Pinata" was "makin' bacon" with it's twin in the back of a Hack sometime during the tour. Not sure who has the pictures...

Thanks Ken. Renea looked long and hard for her photo efforts but could not find them!

Great photos, Ken ! I have some good ones also.

Are you sure the tan car is a Model A? If it is, somebody went through a lot of trouble to take the front brakes and shocks off.

Beautiful tourabout in the last pic.

Here's another shot of the Findlay' Tourabout - beautiful Model T !


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Tom Carnegie on Saturday, September 28, 2013 - 01:45 pm:

The tan car is Mike Stormo's Montana 500 car. Steve is right, I was just joking about it being a Model A. That is what the smiley faces denote. :-)

I actually had a hand in assembling this car.

Thanks Steve for the additional pic. Always one of my favorite body styles. Also want to make it clear, that all the cars pictured are beautiful!

This year there were only 28 cars, usually there are about 40 of us.

The 2012 Tour was in Bremerton WA. There were several broken cranks and lots of band changing. This year the trouble truck remained unused. Yea!

All of the cars participating in the Can Am are gorgeous.
