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 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.
In 2013 we 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 We recently completed an upper East Coast road trip in our Phaeton and logged 5800 miles. We finished the lower East Coast in a just restored '31 S/W Town Sedan and logged 6500 miles.
Jean and I have logged over 125,000 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 98,000 miles on the insert bearing engine I installed in it 20 years ago. It has performed perfectly over these miles with no mechanical issues.
I have restored a '28 Closed Cab Pickup, a '29 Phaeton and am currently readying a '31 S/W Town Sedan for a Alaskan road trip.
Many 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.
