Mike and LaVerne Podgorski of Barrington say their grandchildren and great-grandchildren enjoy riding in the Model A's.

A doctor in Iowa owned the 1928 pickup when Mike Podgorski first spotted it in 1965.

The 1930 Town Sedan was an upscale model Ford called a "Fordor" with three windows on each side. The Podgorskis' sedan has a Briggs body. Two companies, Murray and Briggs, made bodies for Ford in 1930.

The sedan was given new mohair seats during the rebuild.

About this Article

"If you're going to have a classic car, you have to drive it. Otherwise, I recommend you collect stamps!" That is the advice Mike Podgorski of barrington gives on how our beloved rolling icons should be handled. Podgorski and his wife, LaVerne, have racked up plenty of miles through the years on both of their antique Ford Model A's.
