Previous posts featuring member photos and car photos have been very interesting. I found this one today while cleaning up some of my picture files. It was taken at the 2010 National Rally, Windsor,Australia. It was not set up and my wife still laughs when we talk about it.
How many experts to fix this T?

This was taken one cool fall evening six years ago. The '12 roadster was my late father's from about 1980 'till his passing in 1999.

Unseen until the scene was illuminated by flash, there is a misty fog above and behind the car ó I've always fancied it being Dad's Ghost hamming around and getting in on the picture.

Dave, l have looked at that pic of yours many times.... thats another story !!

Here is my collection of pics, that make you wonder, why !!!
In pic 3 if you look really closely, you'll see how far we had gotten in front of 4 other cars.
We managed to get 3/4 the way up and the 12 just decided it to much, so l waited for the engine to cool and the family legged it up about a further 2 miles, one Texas couple stopped while l was waiting and asked "if l needed some gum ", that one comment just summed up a really big day,and mighty hot.
The BEERS at the hotel at the end of the day were well needed.

This is a great thread!!!

Here is my favorite pic of my Model T so far, taken on mine and my wife's wedding day in August as we were driving away from the church...



I asked my wife which one was her favorite and, of course, she couldn't pick just one, so here are a few more...

The first time it ran - with my neigbor who helped me get it started, Jack, taking a little cruise around the block



Took my wife on a quick run to the store - was going to get gas but it ran out of gas before we got there so we were stuck on the side of the road. Another neighbor came and brought us gas. While we were waiting, my wife thought this made a good picture.



One more, from our wedding day

Steve Martinez, you're right; this is a great thread!

Danial Davis, your mentioning your favorite picture, standing on your trailer, triggered a memory.

I will have to find a similar picture of myself, taken many decades ago in a now-defunct Ford dealership in Corinth, MS. I remember clearly it was Saturday, February 17, 1973, and it was shot with a black & white polaroid, taken from the front of the car, of me sitting in the driver's seat, my hands on the wheel, and a look of happiness on my face. I haven't seen that picture in a long, long time, but I remember it clearly in my mind.

I'll see if I can find it and post it here.

The car came home that day, and is still with me.

Love the pictures of the speedtser on your wedding day. Any bride that is happy to have a T as her wedding transport is a keeper! All my wedding photos are are old style so I will have to scan one of them to share here.
Keep the pictures coming. I ma really enjoying looking at these pictures as I am off work recovering from surgery. Nothing like the forum to keep me entertained.

Here it is. Th two of us on our wedding day. A poor attempt to reproduce the cover shot of "From Here To Obscurity" but memorable anyway. Our other wedding cars were a 26 Fordor and two 26' Tourings.
Sadly I sold the Torpedo to help us purchase our first home. That was nearly 20 years ago. I have owned lots of different T's since.

This is one of the good ones from our trip taken in Oregon in the Giant Redwood area. Fabulous area for a tour. We were just lucky to get this photo.

Had pulled into a town to get gas and there was a drive through tree near the gas station. We asked the height and were told it was around 9 feet. As the Kamper is 7'3" we drove though. Found out later that others are only around 6 feet high so if we hadn't have been there for this shot we wouldn't have got one at all.

When I rode a Motorcycle I hated passing through large stands of Euclyptus trees, they seemed to hold the chill from the morning clear till noon. You'd be riding along in 80 degree weather then hit those blasted trees and the temp would drop 20 degrees or so at least that's the way it felt.

Tujunga still has lots of Euclyptus trees.

Hi Guys, the gum trees (eucalyptus trees) may look great but they are a big problem in many ways, never plant one near your house as the roots will block the drain pipes and smash the foundations, get the sap on you and its a sticky mess to get off and worst of all is that they are the biggest fire trap if they dry out in summer, A fire gets to them they explode and just burn so hot that the fire will take every tree in its path. I have cleared all trees for a 100 yards around my home for that reason.
Hey Rick, where is that tree near Willitts, my relatives lived up in Lincoln Way Willitts and we use to ride the skunk train down to Fort Bragg for the day and drive back, great times.
Here is a photo taken while on a tour with David Chantrell and his family some years ago. I was coming back from Ayres Rock in the Northern Territory and the car need some adjustments under neath and the guy was going by and offered to do them for me so I gave him the shifter, he was a bit slow....

Near San Diego is an "uppity" community of Rancho Santa Fe. There are many Eucalyptus in that area. The old story is that over 100 years ago the Santa Fe Railroad company planted those trees, thinking the wood would make good railroad ties. The wood is too twisted for the intended purpose, so the trees weren't used for the railroad.

Cute, Ray. Reminds me of the Italian Americas' Cup team. I'll save that story for later.

Willitts, Leggett, they're all too far away.

from wiki:

The Chandelier Tree is a 315 foot (96 metre) tall coast redwood tree in Leggett, California with a 6 foot (1.83 m) wide by 6 foot 9 inch (2.06 m) high hole[1] cut through its base to allow a car to drive through. The hole was carved in the 1930s. A vintage postcard of the Chandelier Tree was shown during the opening credits of National Lampoon's Vacation.

Rick, of the family that was there only the young ones are left and we are all in the mid 50's to mid 60's now but I would like to come over and see them again but it will never happen for me. I still have some Redwood items from Willits that I brought home in 1970, oh how time is just zooming by. I have those fur covered animals in the paddock near the house quite often but I really dont think about hunting them as I enjoy watching the Roo's just being there. I must be getting old...Ray

Another thing with Eucs is that they are inclined to drop their branches--with out giving notice!
Usually when there is a car parked underneath.

I heard this on the radio many years ago:

The Italian Americas Cup team had a day off, so they drove into the countryside looking for wildlife. On their way back to town, a Roo jumped in front of their rental car and they hit it. As it lay motionless on the ground the Italians took pictures of it. Clowning around, they slipped a team blazer on it and took more pix.

Suddenly, the Roo jumped up and hopped away - with blazer on, passport and car keys in its pouch. The team had to walk..

That's just what I heard, honest. . Ray, did you ever come across a Roo with an Italian passport?

As you know, Ron, I lived in Springfield from 1951 to 1958. I don't think I ever saw a Model T in all those years. There was a big 1920s Stude in a garage near Mill St. school where I went in sixth and 7th grades, but no T in town that I had seen.

The first T I remember was a 1924 Touring brought from Eugene to my parents' 50th in 1974. For all I know, it could have been your Dad.

Jason, Careful now, you could really get used to that!

But I like where that car is headed. There aren't enough Ts with rumble seats.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Frits, because your question is here in a thread entitled "Your favourite T picture," people might miss it. You could probably better start a new thread called something like, "Maroon color code help" so people will see it.

Welkom bij het forum! Er zijn andere Nederlanders hier maar ik denk dat jij de enige Limburger bent.

mvg
Dick

That's me on the left showing all the teeth picking up my latest acquisition. My third T. June 2011. (one at a time thank you) and my second '23 Touring. George, on the right, needed a cinder block on the floor to help him get onto the running board and figured it was time. Had it flat bedded but actually could have driven it home.

Sorry for cell phone quality
Couldn't find any 26/27 roadster body in Sweden - been looking on and off for 25 years - so I had to buy a front tub from California and a turtle deck from Virginia to get anywhere with my projects
