This was a great thread I started a year ago. I hope it gets the same response this December.

With some negative threads on the forum recently, lets dwell on the positive aspects of this great hobby of ours.

I don't have a pic of my favorite, which was my two year old daughter 'driving' my T while I rocked it and made the engine noises, but I'll start with a pic from one of the many awesome rallies (tours?) that I have attended in the deep south of New Zealand this year.

Thanks in advance. Nevin.

Starting the restoration in January 2010 after "sitting" on it for 8 years was monumental for me.
My Grandmother had passed that previous year and I had felt the sting of the loss of one of the only two grandparents I had left. My fathers side I never really knew, my fathers mother died while he was a young man, his father a few years ago. Never really knew them well because they lived in Arizona. My mothers parents for all intents and purposes I knew as my grandparents. Initially I had purchased the project with intention of completing it one and giving it to them because they grew up with these cars and had many a fond memory in T's and other similar era machines. I am a procrastinator, severely so, and it bit me in the ass this time. Kinda figured they'd always be around. I even bought a place up there on toledo bend lake where they lived, always in my mind thinking that my kids would get to know them...aint so now. It's funy how we can delude ourselves into thinking people will always be around, how loved ones will never leave us; Gods greater wisdom presides. Things really hang on a hair don't they and we should do the things we set out to do before it's too late. I miss them dearly and really feel bad about never getting on the ball to do finish it. They always asked how far along I was because they looked forward to driving it to Church and such and I never could admit it was still there in my shop in boxes because I was too busy with my own agenda. Anyway, I'm happy I'm done now, half a year late for gramps sadly but it is for the most part done.

Very well said Patrick. It usually takes a wakeup call to remind us that life is not forever.

My '26 Model T coupe also sat in pieces in the garage for 10 years, until January of 2010, when I went to the doctor to find out why I had had no voice for three months after a bad cold. He looked down my throat and saw a growth that he said appeared suspiciously like cancer. He took a biopsy and would know a week later if I was going to live or die.

That afternoon, faced with my own mortality and of leaving my family, as well as, to get my mind off it, I dug out the Model T parts boxes from all corners of the garage and got my tools together and, that afternoon, started on my Model T, because I didn't know how long I had and nobody could put it together, but me and I didn't want to leave it in pieces for my wife to have to contend with after I was gone. Also, it was worth nothing in its' present state and if I was going to sell it before I "left", I needed to get it together, fast! So, each night, for a week, I worked late into the night on my Model T. A week later the results came back. "Benign"...:-). which became my favorite Model T related moment of 2010.

Surgery on my throat was scheduled the next week and the polyp was removed and shortly thereafter, I got my voice back. I continued working on the Model T with much less urgency and finished getting it together this week, which bacame my second favorite Model T moment of 2010. All because of a lost voice and subsequent doctor's visit. My wife, who after almost 5 years of marriage, had never seen it together, loves it. The night I completed it, she went out to the garage 4 times, just to look at it (my third favorite Model T moment). Had this little episode not occurred, knowing me, she might never have seen it together.

Life is short and precious, so don't take it for granted. If you have something that needs to get done, don't procrastinate, especially if others are depending on you, or if not doing so, will result in hardships to your family. Go ahead and do it. You may be gone tomorrow, so enjoy it today. Jim Patrick

Model T moment?

For the first time in 20 years emptied the entire garage to the outside, moved a 25 flawless Fordor 'tub' (the rest is and has been up in the attic...don't tell the wife, she'll expect the ceiling to come crashing thru) and moved the '15 over under the eave...to make room for?

A new addition, the Depot Hack :-):-):-) Yes...they do multiply!

Kind of anti-climatic to the thread purpose...haha...but still a special momentand my partner through it all was my oldest son who took a day off work to help 'Dad'

Probably the best moment was when I got it cranked a couple days earlier. This was the day I took it on the 1st test drive. It could have been more exciting in a bad way. I was so excited I took off down the county road and discovered that I hadn't put the nut on the steering wheel. I turned around and slowly went home, then put on the nut and went for a couple mile drive.This was March 25th, about 4 months after I bought the frozen up engine which I freshened up and put on a chassis I already had.1st ride 3 25 10.jpg

A 250 mile one way trip, an extra couple of days touring around the area and then another 250 miles home. hopefully the old 10' will still be good in another 100 years.

Actually for me the most favorite Model T moment of 2010 was not the garage cleaning for another one...the proudest moment occured when my youngest son and his fiance announced they wanted the 15 to be both part of their wedding and staged at the reception that occured October 29th.

I asked him why the '15 and his answer was "what else, you and my older brother were always into the other ones and that's the one you taught me to drive in when I was about 10 or 11!" (He's now 27) It did make me feel good that he remembered that special day the way he did.

Answer to Ricks,
I'm not so sure those rims are Firestones as they do not have the lock rings as shown in your ad. The lugs have the word "Detroit" stamped on them and are wedge shaped. The rims are secured to the hub by a 2 tiered protrusion which houses the valve stem. The rims came on my 1915 Roadster that I bought from a local club member in 1985 and is pictured on my profile.


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Willard "Will" Revaz on Monday, December 13, 2010 - 07:45 pm:

Second answer to Ricks,
The last was in reference to the wheels on my 1911 Touring. My recently acquired 1912 Touring came with these demountables:



They are similar to those on the 1911, but have the word "Jackson" stamped on the 5 wedge shaped lugs. Securing to the wheel is done by a "square" which fits into a similar recess in the fellow. No locking ring is used and a problem has surfaced in tightening the lugs in which the metal band around the outside of the fellow is pulling outward. This band is secured in 2 places 180 degrees apart (noted by the 2 metal straps in the picture). Securing this band equally with screws should solve this problem. Any additional info on these wheels would be appreciated.

My absolute top Model T experince in 2010 was my 3 days "Tour de Fyen" with me two 12 years old twins.
An ol' buddy from Highschool,Niels, now a veterinarian on Fyen (the island in the middle of Denmark) admitted he had not been driving his beautiful Model A town sedan for 10 years. That lead me to arrange a trip with him an one - later 2 Model T buddies from Fyen.

Always heard about that "Barn Find". For once in my life, I was in the right place at the right time. Could hardly control myself when I looked in the door at this view, knowing it was available. Well it turned out, after closer inspection, to be a 1910, but complete & no rust. I went...no ran, back to the car for the camera knowing that this had to be a once in a lifetime event, at least for me. I was literally shaking so bad, I had to lean on a broom handle to steady the camera. This has to be my "GREAT MOMENT IN 2010"1910 Tourabout

Hello everyone.

For me, the hit parades of best moments in Ford model T are:

-1 the day I found the Model T of 1912 (May 2010).


-2 The international concentration of Ford T in Normandy (France), with all our friends enthusiasts (June 2010).


-3 The construction of an enclosed trailer to transport our Model T Ford "Torpedo" in 1924, sheltered from the weather (january 2010).


Merry Christmas to you and your family.

My favorite Model T moment of 2010 was when my pastor and I unloaded my wife's 1916. Apparently she grew tired of waiting to ride in my 1915 that I'm restoring so she bought a running 1916. I think all will agree, she's a good woman. In this case, impatience was a virtue

Dennis

I love the Gainesville picture.

Just wondering - did they use an egg timer to get 1/4 mile data? :-)

I'll bet the smoke during burnouts was spectacular.

Fred,

The fastest thing at the strip that day was the wind. Notice the flag; it was normally straight out. Man, those bleachers were cold...

My wife and I hosted the Hoosier Model T Ford Club meeting at our home and we led a tour through Wayne County, Indiana. Here is a photo we stopped to take in Richmond, Indiana on Sept. 21, 2010.

Taken on our honeymoon this past July, this is my beautiful bride Ramona and our '22 touring "Old Charley" taken in front of the shed where Old Charley resided for the first 60 years of his life with his first owner Karl Braun in Melbourne, KY. It doesn't get any better than this.

My Favorite Model T moment of 2010 is discovering this forum.

Being as I don't have a complete car but rather a hodge podge of parts gathered from here & there this forum has been invaluable in furthering my Model T education.

Also of note is the fact that this is a great group of people who post here. Unlike other forums where arrogance, the "I'm better than you" attitudes, and other as*hole-ness dominate the scene, it's not the case here.

2011 is the year where I buy a complete T!

I'd have to say getting old Chug back on the road for the first time since 2000! Took my sister for her first ride in it since she was 12 (she's 32 this year) Great times!

Memorial Day parade in Bayport, MN. Later that morning my son and I took our lovely brides on a 30 mile drive with the manifold cooker filled with sausages and kraut. A noon picnic at a nearby state park ended our favorite 2010 Model T memory.

ready to leave for the 8 ayem parade....
