Way back in 1948, I spent my whole summer vacation helping build a roller skating rink in a neighboring town. I saved enough to buy a beautiful 1929 Ford Coupe with a Rumble seat. After a while, it started missing a little so a friend and I took it to a one man, one car repair shop. The mechanic listened to it, told me to shut the key off and he removed the distributor cap and said the points were pretty well pitted but maybe by filing it a little bit we might not have to replace them. It ran great and he charged me 75 cents.
