Fast — The motor has about 10 miles on it and with the power to weight ratio it is difficult to keep the wheels on the ground. The car is so clean and the paint is beautiful. The Hot Rod took 3 awards at the World Of Wheels car show in Boston April 2013.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Incredible Power, mean, mean car

Cons: Fuel Consumption, loud and tight compartment

Exhilarating — Black and chrome, doesn't get better than that! Handling and acceleration was excellent. Freeway driving was comfortable and reliable. Quick response can be a pro and con. Over-steer can lead to issues and uncontrollability. Exciting to drive and people are always pulling up next to you and stare. Thumbs up!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Light and quick, fun to drive and gets plenty of looks on the road. Old school look with all the new goodies.

Cons: Being so light can get scary when getting into the pedal. Car feels off balance in turns.

Fun To Drive In The City But Not Enough Hp For The Freeways. — This was the first engine i rebuilt. I was 13 years old and it was really simple to do. Engines weren't very complicated then. I co-owned this car with my dad. We had another car at the time we drove until I rebuilt the engine on this car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun to drive but you really had to concentrate to drive it.

Cons: The cross-leaf rear suspension. It did not corner very well.

Friendly 1931 Ford Model A Coupe — Here's a romantic ride I rebuilt in 2005. She's all stock, 45 hp flat head engine, 3-speed tranny, electric starter, rumble seat and "Ahooga" horn, just like Henry made it. She doesn't see any parades, but she's a good driver. Every wave is answered with a honk of the horn.

Pros: Chicks dig it!

Cons: It doesn't always start when you want it to.

Cons: Windows would be nice!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Looks Awesome( and the one i drove drives awesome)

Cons: mine is under restoration, but it( the working one) had no flaws other than the safety of it( a car like that would kill you if you got into a accident at normal car speeds...

Easy To Repair And A Very Fun Driver — In order to understand my position on this car you have to realize it was the first manual transmission I ever drove, which makes it special. I have also driven/ridden in it for over 15,000 miles, which makes it a part of almost every antique vehicular (mental) comparison I make. That being said, with hydraulic brakes the car can stop on a dollar and give you change. It is a chore to steer at slow speeds (<10 mph). It has a pressurized block, as well as, a counterbalanced crankshaft which add to the original model a performance. It will maintain 65 mph easily, but any higher speed it is downright dangerous. It has the essence of 1920-30s classic lines. Also, it averages 20 mpg, a little less when we rally it. I will always love this car, it is the most reliable antique we own and I have spent so much time in it sentimental does not begin to describe its value.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fun in most categories

Cons: 4 cylinders
