Hi Royce,

We made the Utah tour without any problems. The car ran very well at 10,000 feet. The car didn't like hills. I have never been up that high myself. The only thing I had to do was adjust the carburetor. I didn't lose any water what so ever.

I tried to respond to you on the Model T International web site. It would not go!

If you want to post this on the forum feel free. Attached are two photos. One of my car and one of Keith Townsends car.

Pete

Pete and Keith both have great looking cars! Maybe one day I can afford a gallon of blue and a gallon of black to fix mine.

Better pictures are here:

Keiths car is a 1911, with factory doors.

Pete's 1911 has a serial number about 1000 earlier than mine, but with a Beaudette body about 2300 later than mine. Pete has a set of fore-doors for his car, but they have not been restored yet.

We had great fun comparing the cars. Of course Pete's is a fabulous restoration with beautiful paint. I still have a lot of buffing and polishing to get a Ratledge shine!

Pete and I have become good friends over the years and it was a great experience to meet the man and car in person!
