A parking lot is a parking lot is a parking lot—unless it’s the Summit Racing parking lot. On any given day or time, the lot outside a Summit Racing store can turn into an impromptu mini car show, depending on who’s stopped by the store. On Wednesdays, we’ll share our parking lot find of the week—another benefit of being Powered by Summit Racing Equipment.
What hasn’t already been said about the Ford Model A?
This is the car that caused riots when introduced in 1927 as millions of Americans flocked to Ford showrooms. The much-anticipated follow-up to the venerable Model T, the Model A didn’t disappoint thanks to its fresh new look, easy drivability, and low price — the hallmark of Henry Ford’s mass-produced cars. The Model A was available in an array of different body styles during the course of its lifetime (1927-31), including Coupe, Business Coupe, Sport Coupe, convertibles, Roadster Coupe, Phaeton, Tudor, and more.
One thing about the Model A that wasn’t particularly impressive: power and speed.
These two factors were less important to Ford than dependability and affordability; however, hot-rodders would eventually put their own performance spins on the Model A. The “A-bone,” as it became known, is one of the most hot-rodded vehicle models in history. This 1930 Model A we spotted before winter in the Summit Racing headquarters parking lot is another great example.
