A 1929 Ford Model A Tudor, bought at the start of the Great Depression, is passed from father to son through four generations.

Through the decades, Melvyn Ford is a silent witness to joy and sorrow. The car plays a role at family  births, weddings, and deaths.

This is a work of fiction set in the real world.

Any other resemblance to actual events, locales, or persons, living or dead, is coincidental.

This is an absolutely wonderful story. Seeing something cherished and passed on through the generations of the family will bring a smile to your face. I may be biased towards Carlos' writing, but I highly recommend this story.

This is a short story to warm the heart of anyone who loves their cars and their families.  It is one of my all-time favorites and is a very satisfying if quick read.  I heartily recommend it to everyone who loves a good up-beat story that ticks the boxes on the most important events in life!

A great heartwarming short story that is sure to bring a smile to your face. This is about a car that becomes more than a family heirloom, it almost becomes part of the family. You need to read it to discover the important role that the Ford Model A Tudor, Melvin Ford, plays in this families development. A recommended 'feel good' read.
