My name is Dave Gerold and I live south of Jordan, MN with my wife Jean. We live on a corner of the family farm that has been in our family since before the Civil War. Jean and I have raised two respectful and productive sons who are now out of the home and making it on their own.
Jean is a recently retired elementary school teacher and I am a custom homebuilder. We each have close to 40 years of experience in our vocations. We are active members of the Twin Cities Ford Model A Club and find ourselves most active during the touring season. We are also members of MARC, MAFCA and MAFFI. We recently completed a cross country trip of 9,200 miles. If you want to check out our adventure here is a link: http://www.travelark.org/traveller/29-ford-model-a
I have restored a '28 Closed Cab Pickup and a '29 Phaeton. Jean and I have logged over 80,000 miles in our Model A's. We attend most of the closer National Model A Conventions with a group of good friends from our Club. The Phaeton we use for touring has over 70,000 miles on the insert bearing engine I installed in it 11 years ago. It has performed perfectly over these miles with no mechanical issues.
Most evenings and weekends you will find me in my workshop involved in one Model A project or another. I find it really rewarding to keep these cars running properly.
