I had a great Sunday afternoon in downtown Renton, July 12, 2015. South 3rd Street, the main drag through downtown, was closed to traffic for the 25th Annual Return to Renton 2015 Car Show.
There was a great variety of cars to see (over 300 of them) from vintage antiques, muscle cars, roadsters, hotrods, a Maserati from the 80s, even a really cute little 1957 BMW Isetta 300.
After a few of us had some fun with Endre Barath, Jr.'s photo posting incident, the Algos Parse Mystery on Activerain last week, the case was quickly solved by some of our members with keen internet talents and also one with a lot of antique car knowledge.
So today, a shoutout goes to Ed Silva who chimed in to clarify a few facts about Model A and B Fords to solve the case.
At the car show I came upon this beauty. It’s a 1930 Model A Coupe hardtop. I really enjoyed the fact it hasn’t been restored, this is it! I talked to the owner who bought it (as is) back in 1968 and it’s completely stock! It still runs great and looks pretty darn good too for 85 years old!
So thanks Ed, this one’s for you and I learned a few things about Ford Model A’s and B's this weekend.
