Over the years i have seen many pictures of R Ricks speedster/now pickup and i have to say the last was by far the best! Please post it again RD as the best use of any old car is Sharing!!! Good on ya!! Bud.
I vote for driving.
Here 'tis, Bud. I have another pic, but can't figure out how to convert from .bmp to .jpg .
I met this 15 year old when I went to buy a scrolltop desk off Craigslist this week. She was surprised to see the T. Her mother told me she had had a few driving lessons, and that she had lost her father a few days prior. I took her for a ride around a residential block, then put the car in neutral, and put her behind the wheel. With minimal instruction on it, she handled the clutch well, and I keep close monitor on the throttle. She did good.
The cost: a few minutes
The smile: priceless
You're a good guy Ralph....
RDR, A better use. Neil
Ralph, Not that anyone can take her father's place, but perhaps there is a void that someone like you can help to try and fill. Good going. Jim Patrick
One of the biggest joys of owning an antique car are the smiles you get from kids of all ages. A buddy of mine awhile back had a Ferrari Testarossa. Several times we met for lunch, I would bring the Model T and he would bring the Ferrari - talk about Mutt and Jeff. He eventually stopped bringing the Ferrari because a) he was paranoid somebody was going to scratch it, and b) everybody was usually gathered around the Model T.
Ralph, You're a good Ambassador for the Model T hobby.
Wayne, It would be kind of hard for you and your buddy to cruise together.
Ala Reid Welch, RD. Well done.

John -- that's why we'd meet for lunch...
We figured he'd be rolling at a slow idle just above stalling the engine, and I'd be going flat out.
Reminded me of an air show a number of years ago where all the Grumann "Cat" fighters flew over in formation - The F4F Wildcat was going as fast as he could go, and the F-14 Tomcat had the wings swept forward, gear down, flaps and slats hanging out and probably a 40 degree AOA. Very cool sight though.
