January; a new year and a new old car. Gary Bogle’s Model A is the featured car for the month. Gary found the car in the Great lakes Area of the USA. He bought it in 2018 and had to wait 3 months for the snow to melt before he could it get out. I ask him why this car and he replied, “it’s a Ford with a Ford Motor”. Yes, Gary is a Ford man.
You Ford experts take a look this car and tell me what year it is. If you said 1930 you would be wrong; it’s a 1929, and the front chassis below the windshield has had body work to look like a 1930.
Gary got the car home and went to work on it to change things to make it the fine ride it is today. He has had the car for about 5 years now and has shown it at Long Beach, the Steve McQueen show in Chino, Via Verde and a few other local shows. Great car, Gary! We're glad you and the car are with us at CAL-RODS.
