Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2011: So... What did you guys get for Christmas?

Every year, I watch Gene Shepherd's "A Christmas Story" and though this adorable movie teaches little about the true meaning of Christmas, at the same time, there ain't nothing wrong with a little gift-giving, as inspired by the wise men in Bethlehem (though I did remind my family, if you're going to give anybody frankincense and myrrh, please also include a gift receipt). This year, my wife and daughter were real good to me, so a public "Thank you" is in order. This is what they got me...



and



Neat, huh?

After installing and testing out the E Timer that I got for Christmas all I can say is:

Wow.. WoW and.... WOW!!!!.... I can't believe how much a difference some little computer timing thing can make!!!

If you haven't checked out the E Timer you really need too. I guarantee you won't be dissappointed in how much better your car will run.

One of the really nice things is that it still looks original and I can switch back in a matter of seconds! Can't imagine why I would ever want to though.

Thank You Santa and Mike Kossor

A week ago I was putting on a half dozen sweaters so I could drive my '13 runabout to Cars and Croissants, a local bi-weekly gathering of mostly high-end modern stuff. (One family showed up with FOUR Ferraris, but they always get a kick out of my brass toys.) The temperature was 22, and I was expecting to freeze my cojones off. My wife rolled over in bed and said: "Go in my office. There's a big box. You can have it early." It was a snowmobile suit! All of a sudden, driving brass cars with no weather protection is a four-season sport! The drive was practically toasty! Whoopee!

Tools from my kids, Ford books from my ex-wife, a $100 Tee-Bird products gift certificate from lady friend #1, 15 lbs of King crab legs from lady friend #2, a bottle of Early Times 354 Bourbon from one of my mud bog friends, etc. No Model T under the tree this year, but I plan to fix that by this summer.

All in all I'm very happy!

After buying five transmissions and getting 15 broken drums, I got three new transmission drums complete with gearing and Mary got a very neat complete outfit that I picked out for her in secret and wrapped it myself. Surprize, it fit and she loved it. I hope the drums fit as good as her outfit does, but after 55 years I know her size to a T.

Wife got me lightweight fiberglass fenders for my drag car. Have wanted them since 1994 when I first got the thing, but for some reason never picked them up. I got her a Flowmaster exhaust for her Mustang (the more quiet version). She had hinted during the summer that it would be nice to have the 2 shiny tips sticking out under the bumper and a little bit more sound. Never thought my pretty girl would want car parts for Christmas...

Didn't get anything for the T which surprised me. Dad and I have been working on it nearly every free minute since it got here.

Yours may be bigger but my 10 inch-er works just fine.

300 cable TV channels with absolutely nothing on. I remember 13 channels(VHF) Actually we only received 3 channels and 1 of them was snowy but the programs were much better.

My wife and I still sit on the 'Group W' for our tea break when gardening. I have the original album - Arlo Guthrie's debut album in '67 where the song is the whole of 1 side.

The film followed in 1969. When I saw the Cadillac 'pickup' Ray was riding in, I was bouncing up and down 'I want one!'. We don't have the concept of flower cars here, I didn't realise it was a funeral vehicle, I just loved the idea of a1950s Caddy pickup. I still love the idea, I nearly bought one 2 years ago.

Back on topic, I didn't get anything T related for Christmas. Ho Hum, rather than Ho Ho Ho.

Michael K Mullis,
So what are the particulars? Make? Year? What channels are on the dial? My mother still has a couple that were in my dad's collection, including one from about 1946 that has channel one on the dial. It is partially apart and needs minor restoration and repair. I grew up in a TV repair shop in the '50s, so I get a little nostalgic for early examples.
Drive carefully, and enjoy the New Year! W2

Doug,
Yes, I wanted to know a few particulars about the carb, eg were the internals present etc. I also asked her if she would consider placing a buy it now on the carb.
She agreed to do so at a price I was willing to pay so I purchased the carb. Its the only 1911 Holley I've ever seen and will be a welcome addition to my Dec 11 MIL roadster. I have two 1912 Holleys and neither of them run worth a hoot. I hope this model works better, although I am not thrilled about a carb with an air valve. Typically the spring has either lost compression or missing altogether.
From the photos the carb looks like its not seen heavy use. Ie adjusting fork holes not enlarged, etc.
I wonder where she found the items she is selling, the old spark plugs and two carburetors. She is not a model T widow.

My clan decided apparently that riding on old 'checked' side wall Riversides and having a spare with a sidewall bubble was not the best wisdom for a guy like me and somehow they were able to sneak the 'candy cane donuts' in the house without me catching a peek! :-) They also decided that the wheels could use new nickle plated caps and I must say, I AM impressed with these newer ones...beefy and solid...not 'tinny' like in the past.

On another note...yesterday a box showed up from a 'lifetime past and long forgotten' and in it was a photo journal of before and after pictures of my first 'barn find' to reality restoration I did in 1979-1980 :-):-) I must have been crazy to tackle that one but hey, I was young. Interestingly, that one is now apart again for a new resto' and motivation priority has been slow and I'll print the pictures and hang them about...lol...the total work now is maybe but 30% of what it was then...and I had forgotten just how shabby that original 'find' was.

with AM and FM radio

Like you I really dig the early TVs. I have owned several but now Im down to two, a 1946 RCA model 630-ts(the Model T of TVs)It has channels 1 thru 13. My other TV is the above pictured 1948 8-TK-29.

I do not know if I'll restore it electronically or not. I've done a couple in the past. I used to restore antique radios before I met Lizzie.

How about when they SHUT DOWN for the night...or just ran a "test pattern" until "Howdy Doody" came on :D

My Dad remembers it being a big deal when someone in the neighborhood got a TV..."Did you hear? the Maxwell's down the block bought on of those new Television sets" ...and all the neighborhood kids and parents would all stop in the check it out. Ah, the good old days :-)

Our first TV (1952), a 21" Silvertone, had a plug stuck into a socket on the back of the chassis labeled "COLOR". I guess you were supposed to believe that one day you could buy an attachment that would convert your TV into a color set. I never looked, but I suspect there weren't even any wires attached to that socket.

Here's some early TV trivia for you L.A. guys. Fill in the blanks: KNXT, _, KTLA, _, KHJ-TV, KTTV, _.

Charlie, think about it. All the people who celebrate Christmas were at church, with family or at a parade or celebration, all the non-celebrants had their stores open or were at home since it was Sunday, the bums knew where to get a good free meal and knew that people with jobs or businesses and money to give panhandlers would be busy so they just as well go eat and go to wherever home is. That's why there was no traffic.

Well, old memories from the past w/those TV sets--but first, no T stuff from Santa--but I got enough T stuff earlier so no disappointment.
So, when I was in First Grade, TV came to Dunsmuir. We got a Zenith set, about 14" maybe? I had the set until about 30 years ago. Got 3 channels--sometimes! Test pattern was on until about 3:30 in the afternoon when Channel 12 would start out with the Morris Taylor Show; country western singing. He must have been really young then, because the show is still on on Sat. afternoons!!!(and he still does local commercials too). Then there was the Genie Posey show; all I remember was it was a "girls show" probably about home decor, etc. THEN MY Show--Don's Cartoon Club! Don sat an an easel and drew cartoons based on stuff we viewers sent in (numbers, words) there was a squirrel puppet who "sang" (45 records played at 78--it was the original Alvin the Chipmunk times), and he'd play some cartoon shorts or three stooges, etc. After that came the news.
OH yeah, TV Dinners! What a treat! (right! NOT--but we thought they were).
OK so much for memory lane. Let's see that would have been 1960 I think.

PS Rick, how about narrower shoes??? :-)

Steve, is that first one a trick question? I mean KNXT call letters were changed to KCBS channel 2 after '51 or so, KTLA channel 5, KHJ-TV channel 9, and KTTV channel 11 I don't think when I was a kid there was anything above channel 11, until KCOP 13 came along in the 60's. Hey do you remember when TV sets had doors on them and were considered furniture? We had a mahogany cabinet Packard-Bell, I think it had a 13" screen, it seemed so huge back then though, and there was no such thing as “instant on” either.
