Thought you guy's might find this of interest.
Not to rain on your parade, Charles, but most of us wish we had a dollar for every time that card was posted here, and in our emails..
Yeh, we're jaded. I guess we could pretend we hadn't seen it before...
Well Mikey liked it!
I havent seen it yet Thanks for posting. Lee
I don't mind if it gets posted again.
Thank you Charles L.
You just keep right along posting 'finds'
This one comes around so often that I never print it out, just read it all over again each time it comes up and don't mind reading it again (other postings here are a bit of an inside joke on the constantly coming back)
As you've seen other newbies haven't seen it yet either
Can we just make that card a permanent post that stays at the top of the Forum for all to see? Along with posts of Oil, Bands and the other frequently discussed items?
i got another name for rick
It's been emailed to me perhaps 100 times over the span of the lifetime of the internet. On this forum it has also been posted perhaps one hundred times.
It's all fun!
Us old guys get to see things over and over again but there are new folks that haven't seen any of it before. Some of the things that I can think of are the spark lever and low gear - clutch diagrams. Both of which are basic T things and important
I think it is great that newbies think enough of us to get excited when they find something they think would be interesting - You never know they might have something we haven't seen before!
Anyone want to talk about water pumps, oil, etc. ?
It's all fun!
I guess you have to be old enough to understand this, but there' something to be said for being thankful that you're still able to remember that you've seen it before!
Thanks for posting Charles,.........harold
I had never seen it! Thanks for posting it!!
It still has a novelty to read and posted around the world, was on the British T club web site not long ago.
This ranks right up there with Bitumen Roofing Tar and What's the Best Oil for number of times posted.
Somehow, I get suckered into viewing it every time too.
Methinks I figured out who Hugh Jaas was back then ... but I won't make a fool of myself here by saying it.
I certainly have sympathy for those who have had to endure viewing this item many times. As a relative newcomer to the T world, I have not seen it before and found the especially the first half to be very enjoyable reading. I think it would be better for the future of the forum to keep the new members sufficiently entertained even it causes eye rolling boredom for the established. Don't worry, I'll catch up to the bored before long.
Never seen it! If that's Max N.D. its near where I was born. My Dad had an International Harvester dealership just east of there.
Dad and another Ukranian bought every tire they could before WW two. In the cold months farmers would bring the equipment for repair in a heated shop. They were one of few who had tires.
I'm not Hugh Jass, but I'm 90% sure I know him. He is past editor of Magneto News. Sorry, I can't reveal more.
In Minneapolis, we had Mel Jass on WTCN Channel 11 (call letters now are the saccharine KARE):
Make sure you watch the whole thing - gets a little risque' at the 1:00 mark:
Like other oft repeated topics and OTs, old timers can just skip over it if they don't want to see it again. I have been in the hobby for over forty years and was posting on this forum in its first year or more. (Followed by a couple years hiatus). I do not mind seeing this again.
Charles L, Thank you for joining in! That is part of what makes model T Fords one of the best hobbies on Earth.
Tell us about your T? From projects in the early stages to family heirlooms, we like to hear about model Ts. Pictures? We love pictures.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Given the average age of most T owners, some here may be able to see that for the first time every couple weeks.
Derek, that may well be close to the truth....
Derek -- LOL
It always brings a smile.
