On "My Car Story" we're in Rosemont IL on 3-2-17 at the World Of Wheels car show. We're looking at a 1929 Model A Ford Roaster 40B in Andalusite Blue Paint. The car's Owner is Val Maron. She’s trusting her husband Mark who will share the car with me the opportunity to prepare her car for the show today. Mark shows us a picture of the shell of a car she purchased in 2008. After 8 years of tireless effort restoring the car she brought this car to the Model A National meet in Perrysburg OH in 2016. The car scored 494 points out of a possible 500 and won Best of Show. That makes this car the most authentic Model A known to exist today! Mark also was delightful in taking me through the steps on how you start a Model A. ENJOY!

The Vertical Automatic Parking Lot was developed by the Westinghouse Electric Company and first tested in East Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania before being set up as a commercial enterprise in the Chicago Loop during 1932 . You can see it work and hear a full explanation of it’s operation in the film.
February 27, 2013 1929 Ford Model A Roadster Frank Maniatis so treasured his 1929 Ford Model A Roadster that 75 years after he bought it, the car still owns a special place in his daughter Tina Higgins’ heart – and her garage. From cross-country pleasure trips to lumber hauling, makeshift repairs and patched-up fenders to a full restoration – and even a tearful homecoming after it had been stolen – this family heirloom has just about seen it all.
I have been using Mike's for parts since the day I bought my coupe. This kind of payback is the reason why. Mike's "A" Ford-able Parts Annual Model A Ford Raffle. This year we chose to support the Wounded Warrior Project. The Generosity of our customers and friends to our wounded men and women in uniform has been quite incredible. You may remember in our first Email we stuck our necks out and hoped we could raise $10,000. Well it went far beyond our wildest expectations and we are proud to tell you that the final total is $18,450. A check for this amount will be mailed out on Tuesday morning to the Wounded Warrior Project. Please watch the drawing here. Mike's Grandson Luke (Erich and Kelly's Son) drew the winning ticket. The Winner of the 1930 Tudor Sedan is (drumroll) Ticket # 668371 - Mr. R. Howard from Ellijay, GA. Congratulations from us all. We have had such a tremendous response to this raffle, that we have decided to make it a yearly event to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. Thanks again one and all. Have a wonderful 2012 and lets hope business everywhere gets going again. From our Model "A"Family to yours
The oldest running car in the world! Named "La Marquise" after the Count de Dion's mother, this 127-year-old automobile had single-family ownership for 81 years and currently has only four owners from new. La Marquise was even a participant in the first automobile race in 1887. To be offered in Hershey on Friday, October 7, 2011, this historically significant motor car is certainly an opportunity not to be missed by serious collectors.
