1906 Olds replica

Among other claims to fame, Petaluma is the home of American Graffiti. We've got a bunch of old car culture here. I occasionally think it'd be cool to have a vehicle suitable for tooling around town in, and fantasize about building a pedal powered quadricycle version of some old vehicle that'd be a good way to go shopping and fit in.

Bob Ferry has built a 1906 Oldsmobile Model B Runabout replica. That looks like a classy way to get the groceries.

I don't think it would take an awful lot to convert a Roades Car into one of those.

Local car nut says that Ford model A are available fairly affordable. I met another model A nut who's about to drive from here (Ohio) to San Diego for a model A aficianados' meeting.

Is the model A nut going to drive the model A to San Diego?

These past couple years have actually been good times for finding classic cars.
