Boy, those ARE tempting prices, but if I had a time machine, I think I would first have to go forward to the year 802,701 and rescue Weena from the Morlocks!

I would still be using mine, but the DeLorean won't get up to 88.

It is interested that there is a difference in 1911 touring car top hoods and 1912 touring car top hoods. Hoods. Not covers, not boots.

Are the top bows of the 1911 touring cars different from the bows of 1912 touring cars?

Although the step-side body and the slab-side body are different, I though the top bow dimensions were the same ???

Found one on Craigslist but was not sure how to operate it so I called in an Expert in such matters ....



Well this Technician certainly knew how to get it going again ....

Yvette Mimieux sure was a cute lady. Cripes, I wasn't even born yet.
That fellow looks like C. H. Wells! Ford sponsored a time machine project?
Oh wait, that's Rod Taylor.
Cool catch Keith! :-)

Once you got the time machine, you'd need to make sure your currency wasn't from 1914 or later. By the time you got the right currency, it might not be so cheap. :-)

Hate to pop the bubble but the closest you are going to get is driving a T down an old back (preferably dirt) road.

I have a time machine that I only used twice
Once to go back in time and once to return.

I will not use it again because it is embarrassing.

It only transfers human, not cloths.
I arrived naked in the middle of a 1915 parade.
When I figured out what people were staring at I pushed the button to return and it instantly worked.
The only problems were that I didnít return to the same place I left from and I was still without clothes.
This time I landed at Walmart but no one paid any attention to me.
Ever try to hide a naked body in plastic bags?
Not pretty!

I think Dan is right, so I am going to go out and work on my Time Machine and have it ready for when the snow melts I can hit the first dirt road I find.

If you can't take 1913 money with you, as Noel says, then you'll have to earn it while you're there. At 1913 wages. :-)

Back to the original post - $1 in 1912 was worth about $24.40 today. That $2.50 toolbox would cost about $61 today. Last summah I bought a metal toolbox of similar size at a John Deere dealer for $48. That toolbox was more expensive then than it would be in 2018.

Fred D, I showed my wife this thread. She said she was at Walmart the day you arrived naked. The reason nobody paid attention to you was because there was a half price sale over on Aisle 17.

If we could go back in time we would get to use Sears Roebuck catalogs and corn cobs in the outhouse too!
But you also could buy a new T runabout for arround 300 or so dollars also!
Something to ponder over.
