It is almost time to start the engines, in fact, we are anticipating doing just that on Friday.
John says the "Bucket" is ready.
I did my part by helping with the upholstery. Here are a few pictures.
John placed the padding.
I spent the day adding the fabric and securing it while he supervised. The seat itself needs to be finished but that won't interfere with turning the crank.
Needless to say, I am more than just a bit excited. Anticipation ya know. One more T on the road is a good thing.
Looking good! And yes, one more T on the road is a good thing!
Looks great is it a pickup or a roadster?
A truck, he has a 1919 wood box for it. Along with fenders and running boards. The glass is being put in the window frame too where he will use the carriage lights.
Way to go! And yes,, it is great to have another T back on the road soon.

today is the day!!! The two of them are in the garage right now... doing a double check....
You better go and check , haven't heard any engine sound but there were a few ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. Not nice to try and fool old T folk ya know.
the bucket has started. She was so persnickety that the first 5 hours were scary. Steve and John checked everything over and over, compression, gas flow, spark, magneto, changed the commentator and plugs. Maybe the carburetor. All she would do was W-I-N-E. Everyone had some place else to be so the guys closed up shop.
John and Jerry head to the T-Barn. The carburetor came off the '26. They return to greet more people arriving. Not too surprised here, but now all the guys disappeared to the T-Barn. Suddenly smoke is coming out of the barn and I could hear her.
There are so many of you who have helped find parts, given advise and have been just as excited as we are. Thank you everyone.
