Happy New Year all,
Here are a few pictures from a short ride we took today.
Loved it! In just about 10 minutes, we're headed out on a new year's T ride ourselves. The sky is clear and the roads are dry.
Hi Chris - The pictures are great! Not only that, but your daughter looks like she's having fun too.
I notice that you don't have a profile picture. I'd like to make a suggestion... The first picture you posted above would make a great profile picture....
Very cool pics...
Interesting how you got out of the car with no foot prints in the snow. I like it, reminds me of my days in Iowa during winter.

Well Chris, it looks like some people just have all the fun! At least three of our local T club members were at the Sunflower Chapter-Antique Motorcycle Club's "Cast Iron Welding Party" about 40 miles south of you. From the looks of things, we didn't have as much snow as you did! The object of the welding day was the repair of a cracked cast iron cylinder off of a vintage Harley (or maybe it was in Indian...all I know is that it wasn't a Model T).
Lovely car. Is that Goofy on the dog-bone? And I am still baffled how you did the no footprints trick :>)
Look real close on the side of the car opposite the camera.
Chris left no foot prints because he parked the car out there two days earlier with his daughter in it. Then came out took the picture.
She drove the car!
I must compliment Chris P for a photo well done! Having had some close friends that knew Bruce McC well, I got let in on a few little "photo secrets" years ago. I can see how it was done. So again, I say "well done"!
I don't say this to brag about who I knew, but to give a little push for further "close looks" and discussion about how it was done.
GOOD EYE! I had not noticed the radiator cap. I believe that is Pluto the pup.
I may have to forgive you for the non-era cap ornament, but given the children involved, I'll call it a good thing. Besides, I still need to ask your forgiveness about that Pierce Arrow question you asked me some time back that I never got back to you on. Long story short, some bad turns, an eventual happy ending, contacts lost and no information found.
Anyway. Great photo! Fantastic car! And enjoy these years with the kids! They grow up too fast.
Drive carefully, and enjoy! W2
That doesn't look like much snow. I've seen more than that here in California! Happy New Year.
Some guys will do anything to get a set of white tires.
The "tip off" on the no footprints thing shows in the third picture down if you look close.
Thank you all for the comments. To avoid footprints, I just parked relatively close to the curb. Then we jumped and walked down the sidewalk a little bit.
Jem-Yes, it's Goofy. I have a bunch of different mascots I've made. I cast this one from a pattern a friend sent me. I need to put another tail on him; it fell off in Colorado over the summer.
Dennis-so far she's only steered. Once she can reach the pedals she can drive. I made the same deal with her older sister; I just thought she'd be more than 7 when she was tall enough.
Wayne-thank you for the compliments. No problem on the Pierce-Arrow-thanks for checking it out.
Here are a couple pictures of Goofy-note he's happy on one side, fierce on the other.
Chris - do you take orders for that Goofy? Its awesome! And so are the car and your daughter and the pictures!
