Or as my wife put it; 'a fool and there money part' Picked up a large stash of T and TT parts today and picked up the first of at least 4 loads. I had never stacked T stuff this high and hauled it home, so I thought I'd snap a photo. On the tailer is the remnants of a C-Cab, two more TT chassis, a car chassis, some warfords, a ruckstell, and about 4 rear axles and a front end or two.

Andy, it's supposed to be the other forum where the pictures are invisible.

If I close my eyes I can see that stack of T parts in my garage

I can't see any pictures, but from the description I'm guessing it may be some stuff in my area...

Andy! Hey Andy! Andy? ANDY!!! You forgot to take the picture. And weren't you suppose to be at work today? So what are the Nuns going to say about that load of Model T parts? Are they going to be impressed?

Yeah, no pictures = it didn't happen. :-)

Well, I don't know what happened, I can surely see the pile, can't any of you? I'll try it again.

Looks like a '27 touring and a TT.

If this is the stuff by Wanamingo, I'm glad you bought it because I've been tempted to make an offer for the whole lot but couldn't figure out when I'd have time to pick it up and sort through it all.

What fun! A treasure hunt for sure! Technique only -- if I can keep the "reserve parts pile/project pile" out of site and keep a nice clear area in the garage for my wife's car -- she doesn't mind if I bring more treasures home later. Looks like you will have enough parts to start several projects or even start a couple of different teenagers on speedster projects etc.

Good luck with your new T / T-parts.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

Last time I hauled a load like that home, was the beginning of the end in our marriage. The divorce was 10 yrs ago. June 13, 2003

OK....I'm officially in envy!

Is that a single long frame I see going from almost the front to the back? If so, what is it....a "stretched TT" or what?

Andy, we appreciate the picture, but it sure would be nice to see more pictures with better resolution if possible. I know you're busy with your new found treasures, but still.....

Thanks, Keith

Keith on the bottom was a TT frame and then a car chassis behind it. On top of that was another TT chassis; just a frame and rear end. On top of that was the remnants of a C-Cab and topping it off is a 26 chassis and touring body.

I can never post any larger pictures than this, I always wonder how everyone else gets such nice large pictures.

Derek,

Yes, I was in your neighborhood yesterday and will be back this week. I stopped by Dan Ryan's and he took us over there. Some of the stuff isn't as good as Dan said, because a giant oak fell on a bunch of the stuff on the side hill, so out will come the chain saw on the next trip.

How would you sneak a mother load of rust like that past a wife?? I am jealous. Nice catch.


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Andy Loso St Joseph, MN on Saturday, June 15, 2013 - 08:34 pm:

I don't sneak it in, I text her a picture as soon as it is all strapped down and put it in the front yard at my in-laws so my mil and wife see it. A little mumbling and grumbling from them is all I hear.

I looked at that stuff in Feb. but there was still snow on the ground, and he was in a hurry to leave so I didn't see what all was there... I had been planning to go back but snow and rain kept interfering. Did you buy the Model A stuff too?

Glad to see it went to a T guy, and not a scrapper!

Three of the past four loads like that that I hauled home, I squeezed everything inside the Expedition (except for four T frames which were tied onto the roof rack). I park it where she can't see inside it. Then quietly unload while she isn't looking. Thank goodness for lots of trees and outbuildings to quickly hide things behind.
One of those loads was the entire 1899 gasoline carriage, stacked to the roof inside. Three loads of model T parts have been stacked to the roof inside. I don't know how I have gotten away with all that and not done any significant damage to the headliner (?) in the poor thing.
Congratulations on what looks like a great catch!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
