It just occured to me I have been posting on this website for a number of years and don't have a clue what most the posters look like.
So I thought it'd be a good idea to identify ourselves with a photo. It will be an enjoyable thread.
I'll start the ball rolling.
OK, here you go. Take your pick.
I know Richard Gould, and you're no Richard Gould.
Me and "Penelope"
Did I mention I still own a Mustang ?
Yup, Here I am
Taken about a year ago with my "helper".
This ain't a very good picture but I can't remember the last time I took a good one. I've added about 30 lbs since my profile pic but the wife sure cooks good.
Here's me HAHAHA!
January '06, unloading the TT off the trailer after a whirlwind trip to Kemp Tx. Hadn't had my hands on a T since '45. Didn't know about Warfords and it was in neutral. T'was starting to pick up speed and am looking for a hand full of hand brake.
I have braces, no kidding. Sometimes I get purple rubber bands. I am the oldest patient currently at my orthodontist's office, but he says he's done work on even older people.
Your not old, just aging, like fine wine!
Here we are John & Cathy! Not current, but not old either! Pic is not too good.
Oh, I just couldn't pick which one. Dan Gurney & Reeves Calloway, The Fonz, The Pit Crew Girls...
Aha...neat idea Richard
Will be interesting to see if "the looks" match the prose or vice versa.
Some folk on here haven't seen me in 20-25 years! Like Steve, we'll start younger in case someone has had a mental flash for years and get to the present...
Resized The pic! Hope this is better, I don't care, but the better half does!
This is how I take out my frustration after my T doesn't start
Im old short grey and fat with no picture by request!! The only thing i have going for my look's at Christmas sometimes little kids look at me with shock and awe!! A friend found me sitting in the middle of the local mall today and when he saw me looking at a couple of 20'ish girls he asked Curly,What are you dooing?? I simply replied,Proving the old addage there is no fool like a old fool!!
This is me from last year, a little older but not so much wiser.
O.K, This is me.
O.K. This is me.
Everyone should have a machine tool big enough to stand on. (-:
I look like Richard Gould on a good day, but most days I look like this
Here you go. This is Dan (I'll be in trouble when he notices that I posted a pic of him) oh well, haha Sweetie, that's what you get for having me do all your postings
My wife Barbara, daughter Lisa, and myself at VJ day on the Battleship New Jersey
Barb's in her original 1942 American Red Cross Clubmobile uniform, and Lisa's in her original 1942 ARC Motor Corp uniform. The Model A is dressed as a Motor Corps vehicle, and I just look like a politician....
Mike from Williamsburg - what style to do practice? I'm a 3rd dan in Tang Soo Do.
I guess I have to say, I look like me! Just add a little more hair to my face.
This is me without sun glasses.
A couple years old but it will do.
"Lizzie" has been fixed up a bit. New top, MotoMeter, fresh paint on the radiator shell and bumpers but I'm about the same.
I'm the one in the middle
I have no normal pictures of me:
What do you have to say? Im the one at the left...
Just did an auto correct on this pic. Tech is amazing.
BTW, I just saw on news that Tony Curtis has died. Watch for the "Greatrace" on Turner Classics, etc. TCM has no ads, and some good commentary sometimes.
Mario, she has the lips that could sink a thousand ships...
"Loose lips sink ships", from WWII posters.
The trouble is that we only adopt children.....
I don't have any "normal" pictures of myself either. This is me before a cup of coffee I guess. ;)
And one taken on my cousin Larry's M-H Challenger.
I'm on the right!
This is in Colorado last June on the CO/Wyo tour.
Family , Me , and the "T"
Now, with my better half on our wedding day in April 2006 and then, as a Marine Sgt. in 1976. It's a good life. Jim and Darlene Patrick
Thanks for your service to our country. My family can sleep peacefully at night because of guys like you. Much appreciated.

72 years ago. I am the one with the fish.

Here is me just a "few" years ago
This is me on a bad day
This is me on a good day
This is me on a bad day
This is me on a good day
From a few years ago...the kids have grown a head taller!
You can see me and my T on my profile
This picture is of me with my first car in 1945. I'm the one behind it, and a neighbor is the one at the wheel.
This is a more recent one of Anja and me at the St. Louis-Stuttgart Sister Cities annual Winterball Karneval a couple of years ago.
This is me getting acquainted with Jennie.
This is a tintype my daughter did of me. So to answer your question, Rasputin.
I'm the driver with my buddy Kevin along for comic effect
I sure hope that's not a '26-27 FORDOR that Dennis Halpin is adding gas to through the cowl vent!!! In case no one told you, Dennis, the gas tank is still under the seat in '26-27 Fordors. Ha, ha, ha!
Nice Tudor and a well-posed photo, Dennis. 'Love dem Tudors!
You are too cute! Too bad you're too young for my daughter.
That's me in the front. Pic is probably 4 years old. This son is now 18. Boat was a father son project. Motor was an E-Bay el cheapo. Second pic is him in a state park not far from here. Absolutely beautiful in there.
This photo was taken by my wife the day the engine was brought home. From L-R: Bob Johnson, myself, Brandon Peterson, & Barney Wagner. Bob's father was a founding member of the Tacoma Model T Club; Chris is manager of one of the Arrow Lumber Stores; Barney is the owner of the Arrow Lumber chain and the fella who owns the Model A's that was instrumental in diagonising the shimmy in my Model T. Barney also gave up his Saturday to drive up to Victoria, where my transmission was being rebuilt.
I tell ya, I've got some great friends! Without them, this car would not have been put together as quickly as it was.
OOPS! I found another without my toys (the joys of bachelorhood ), allot more clearer and applicable for this thread. Recent pic, just before my sis's wedding.
I notice a couple of you are into the reenacting hobby! I do Confederate and am with the 19th LA Co A Vance Guards. Nice to meet y'all and hope to see y'all out!
This is me in my 20's outfit. But now I'm 60 lbs lighter and still losing. I wanted to reach 60 looking a little slimmer.
Taken a year ago with the "Thundering Bird".
Here is one of me and the 27TT and one of me handing my daughter her Doctor of Dental Surgery diploma this last June. Now THAT was a kick!!
Michael W. Herndon
I don't have one with my T's that I can find right now so here's one I put up on a web site today that I was working on. I'm the fat guy with the microphone. There is about 25 lbs less of me to love than there was when this was taken. I had lost about 32 but it's been creeping back. Creeping, Hell, it's running right at me and jumping on.
Jenny And Me @ 2010 Old Car Festival
Jenny and Me
Here are some more recent, fun pics of me other than T stuff...which is rare
I'm a co-pilot!

Worm feeding the fish with grandson
Taking a pull on some fine NC 'shine
Just to keep it T related....friend's grandson helping me with axle work !
My son and I as we test drove the 25 without the body in 2008. This was the first time I had ever driven a T! A pic of the finished car is on my profile with the good looking better half.
Since we're posting pictures of old fat men...
Me and my Princess.
Here some Pictures from germany. My wife Petra and me at the "Oldtimer Meeting" (Vintage Car Meeting) in Baden-Baden this year.
Duane, With that big grin on your son's face, it looks like we have a future Model T'r to carry on after we move on. Jim Patrick
60 years ago and now.
Here's one of me on a good night.
My Dad & I. Not T but A
I'm the guy on the right - almost two years ago when I had more hair. LOL
Karen and me and the 27 on my profile. Bob
I took this on our 34th anniversary in July, mi esposo and myself. The photo on the left seems like it was taken a lifetime ago...guess it was. I seem to have filled out a tad.....Bob
One of the rare non-injured photos
Me standing on the hallowed ground of Fair Lane, 3 years ago.
Unfortunately the camera didn't have an ugly filter.
Me and my other passion - flying in vintage aircraft. Manning the portside 50 cal. in the Aluminum Overcast B-17.
Ok, here's a couple
My wife Chris and I in front of the 11 Tourabout
Here I am with my son Dan on tour and standing by his 12 touring
Both pictures were taken on our 800 mile tour across BC 2 years ago.
"I sure hope that's not a '26-27 FORDOR that Dennis Halpin is adding gas to through the cowl vent!!! In case no one told you, Dennis, the gas tank is still under the seat in '26-27 Fordors. Ha, ha, ha!
Nice Tudor and a well-posed photo, Dennis. 'Love dem Tudors!
Yup, It's a 27 Tudor Marshall.
One thing interesting about that cowl tank. It's hard to miss when it's leaking. All you have to do is look down at the gas dripping all over your feet!
That picture was taken by the local news paper. Sure wish the gal had bothered to say "Quit talking for a moment and smile". In the background is my Mrs. sitting in her brand new Malibu, (which I promptly "totaled" in a traffic accident about a week later).

Deep in thought?
This is me at the Nina when it and the Pina visited here last month.

You're gonna have to have a new costume, better go flapper girl. Congrats, LIVE LONG AND T.
Here is Michael and Petra Velling from Germany. I photoshopped their picture so we could all see them better. Frank
I have posted my picture a lot on this web site but here are three more for this string with Mary.
Mary and I a few years ago having dinner aboard HMS Queen Mary. I have lost 50 pounds due to ill health since that picture was taken.
Mary and I on our boat named after our grand daughter Katie Anne.
Our 66 Jag XKE in the years before we were into Model T speedsters. Three carburetors, 265 horsepower and 2650 pounds . It would really go! Yes it is Racing Green with biscuit leather interior. I put that paint job on it back when nitrocellulose lacquer was legal and there are 15 hand rubbed coats on it.
I'm the driver.
Just put Dad's photo on my profile,
Here's an almost 40 year span of me
It was hard to keep the braces under wraps
Me, George n L.A. (L) and Aaron Griffey (R), Spring '09
With middle daughter Jane. She also likes to drive the Model T pickup and the TT flatbed.
Dennis and Steve,
I think the current count of flyable B-17's is 7 in the US and Europe. I helped restore and actually have some flight time in "Fuddy Duddy". I believe all of the flyable ones are actually G's some of which have been backdated to look like F's. There's an active association of owners that trade parts, get parts made (most have needed the nose transparency at some point), and share experiences -- kinda like the T club...
O.T. Steve, Dennis and Wayne since you metioned your hobby of restoring and flying vintage WWII warbirds. I thought you would find this aside, interesting.
Go get the 1946 movie, "Best Years of Our Lives" starring Dana Andrews, Fredrich March and double amputee, Harold Russell (who won an oscar for his portrayal) about three servicemen coming home from the war and attempting to cope with peacetime while trying to resume their pre-war lives.
Voted one of the best movies in history and one of my personal favorites. Here is the dramatic scene in that movie, filmed in an aircraft graveyard featuring vintage aircraft, as far as the eye can see, destined to be scrapped.
If only someone had had the forethought buy those aircraft for the 1946 scarp price, he would be a billionaire now. Jim Patrick
P.S. Sorry for the brief hijack. Back to the portraits
Myself and Granddaughter Savanah
Here is the real me on the CO/WY Tour last year.

I don't have my extra files on this computer, just a few.
(1)This was taken in May 01' in Pontic Mi at the start of the Hot Rod Power Tour. (2) winter a few years ago. and one more with the car.
Now 25 lbs lighter, 1/4 less hair-took retirement to my lower back, different smaller glasses, wait this is starting to sound like a eHarmony ad.
Me & my sister 1969. Picture taken just before I went in to the Army during Viet Nam war. Notice 1950 XK120 Jaguar in garage.
100 pounds and a lot less hair.Faultless Raceabout project 2010
Jim, I've seen "Best Years Of Our Lives" a hundred times. I still have a little trouble getting through that scene. They captured that "lost" feeling a lot of us had when we got back from Viet Nam too.
I work in a military museum www.freedomisntfree.org
Get to meet some really interesting people.
Jim, thank you for sharing that site.
George n L.A.
You're welcome George. Dennis, thank you for your service to our country. The WWII verterans depicted in that movie were treated as heros, but still had a difficult time adjusting. It would have been nice, had you gotten the thanks you deserve when you needed it. I shudder at the shabby treatment our Vietnam veterans received upon thier return. It's a wonder that you all were able to carry on as well as you did.
heres me ready to plow.....Paul
I would have posted this earlier but I was in Mexico this week.
This is the 1919 and me with a few friends just before a Taunton (Mass) High school Thanksgiving Day football game.
I'm wearing the bowler hat and I believe my happy friend it is Roger Dexter, who I have lost contact with.
I don't remember the names of the cheerleaders.
Here is one of Stan Howe from Chickasha 2010:

This is prasad i can describe my self as I am a cool and self-confident guy with a predetermined goal to fulfill my objective. I believe in Hardwork and Sincerity which should be backed by gud character and discipline which r necessary for anyone to reach his/her goals. I feel that im having them.
Here I am in my latest project.
Here I am with my new wife Kaysa , she has yet to go on her first Model T ride !!

Here's Patty and I with "Mr. T", our '24 TT.
This me a while ago. My dad is driving and my mom is in the back seat.

Byron, you show exquisite sartorial taste.
Yea you two could almost be twins? Well the clothing anyway!
Most of us are blessed with angels for wives, yet we sometime overlook them. I want Elsa to have as much recognition as I, so here she is, my angel.
Happiness is driving your "T", but this isn't so bad either.
This is Cheryl & I 10 months ago. She's quite a keeper. She helps me install engines and work on the cars. She cleans up pretty well too. Her favorite job is putting fresh cut flowers in the vases.
Here I am- a face only a mother could love!
