    So I was driving around Lantau today and saw an old Ford looking sorry for itself. I saw the same car in the same space a year ago and it appears to not have moved an inch :(

    Anyone know what car it is?

    Shame if it gets left to rot.

    Beware value

    Cute car for sure, but revival is best left to the aficionados.

    Ford produced millions of Ford A's so it's not worth much more than $10k when it's running - parts availability is easy, but engineers with that kind of expertise are rare.

    Take a look at EBay.com to see the values.

    Here's a flawless, fully restored one that sold for for just $12k

    Driving this era of car is a challenge in itself. "Different times," as they say.

    If you really want this kind of car, it would be far cheaper to buy a loved example from an elderly owner who has got bored with it.

    You know what you're getting, and it works from day one, with no cost over-runs.

    Valuable input, thanks a lot for that. Appreciate it.
