Using the Emergency Brake
by George Sprotte - August 1999
Big Sky Model A Chapter, Montana

Hi From Montana: A great movie I saw many years ago was produced in 1938 starring Constance Bennett and Brian Aherne and a host of many other good supporting actors. The title of the movie was "Merrily We Live".

The motive of this particular title related to Model A's is: when parking, especially on a hill, be sure the emergency brake is on (or have a big rock available) and don't depend on the compression of the engine to hold you while in gear.

Happy Model-A'ing!
