After a last final sprint with brake adjusting and a few other details I got
the permission from the Road Traffic Office to drive the car on the street :-)
After 14 years of restoration and approximately 4,000 hours which I've invested, I could take my first rides. I have been driven only 60 Miles the last few days but it is running well so far, loses no oil and the radiator is not getting too hot.
First let's have a look back …
This photo dates from the summer 1930.
1970 on the market in Zurich.
June 25th 2001, the beginning of my restoration project.
April 22nd 2006, first run with chassis and engine.
August 27th 2015, my Ford Model A is approved and I'm allowed to drive it on the road.
Thanks also to all readers which followed my 5-year project which lasted 14 years … but
my monthly reports are of course not finished this month. My Model A runs on the street,
but it is not finished yet. Several tasks have to be done like:
making new hub caps, restore all tools, … etc.
But the most important thing I have to do the next weeks is tidying up my garage …
