As I mentioned in a previous message. I just create a file for statistics on Model T that still exists.
Complete this form for each of your Ford model T, and you can see the result in "resulta".
When you squeeze to have answered many, this will know, for example, how much is left of "Touring" and "Runabout" or "Centerdoor." How many model T are in working order and how many are to be restored. In what country there has Ford T.
Of course it is completely anonymous.
Therefore made to pass this information to all lovers of Ford T you know.
Thank you in advance
The drop down list of countries doesn't seem to have a choice for the USA. Unable to comply...
The drop down list has french names of all countries, USA is called États-Unis in France.
It's unlikely the statistics will be complete enough to be reliable, though. Former webmaster Tony Cimorelli did something like that over at the MTFCI about eight - ten years ago when most of the forum discussion was there. No significant results. This time engine numbers and names aren't included - might help, since many don't want to reveal their numbers or what they own in fear of burglars/the IRS or whatever.
I just added a side of USA "Etats Unies" to make it easier to find on the list.
Although this is a very simple form, which will not be very precise, but it will be closer to reality.
I did not ask the engine number, because I know that many people are afraid to talk on the Internet. This is why it is anonymous.
Let's periodically bump this to the top and keep it going. It is interesting to see the pie charts and watch the totals as more people fill out the form. It is only inaccurate if members fill it out wrong and I think we are smarter than that and it can't hurt. Jim Patrick
Authentic and put together from parts are not necessarily different. A car that's put together from parts can be very authentic.
Hmm, I listed my 4 T projects, but for each entry I noted my club memberships. Does the program recognize that all four responses are for one person?
Neat stuff Olivier!
Steve, I've even heard that Ford put the T's together from parts.
Oliver. Great info. Being a Prune Picker living in California, I don't understand French. Where is "Pays-Bas?" I see there are 10 Model T's reported so far there. Thanks Mark
A little drift:
I don't know of or where you were raised in California, I'm from the Santa Clara Valley (San Jose specifically). Referring to yourself as a "Prune Picker" brings back fond memories. Many years ago we were all prune pickers in that area. By the way, you do know, I trust, that they were French Prunes. The first d'Agen graft stock was brought to Santa Clara Valley by Louis Pellier in 1856. His widowed doughter-in-law lived across the street from my grandparents in her old age, ca. 1950.
PS - For those who don't know, a prune is NOT a dried plum. A plum is a plum and a prune is a prune, fresh or dried. This statement usually starts an argument.
Mark, "Pays-Bas?" Should be Holland or the Netherlands in French. I couldn't tell why they use "Pays-Bas?" instead.
Pays-Bas literally means low countries. It's the French name for the Netherlands (which literally also means low countries).
If you use Google as your browser, you can set it to automatically translate pages in other languages to english or your language of choice. It actually works pretty well.
Thanks for the responses.
Henry.. I was born in Avenal Ca. and raised in Bakersfield. My dad's family has been here in Ca since 1914, My Mom came from Arkansas during WWII. and her family called all Californians Prune Pickers.
My grandfathers first car was a new 1922 Model T Touring.
Henry I sent you a P M about My Model T in Modesto.
Yes, Gilbert, correct. The official name of the country is "het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden," which in English is "the Kingdom of the Netherlands" and in French is "le Royaume du Pays-Bas." The short name in the three languages is Nederland, the Netherlands and le Pays-Bas. "Holland," though used colloquially in almost every European language, technically refers to two of the twelve provinces.
Filled in a couple more here.
Perhaps link it to other club sites?
It'd be good to have a bit of a census ;)
My T was put together from parts at the factory!
Fred's statement reminded me of the sign at one of the local pick-your-own-part junkyards, addressing any anxiety that prospective customers might have about buying junkyard parts:
"Remember, your car is running on used parts now!"
We need a good worldwide inventory of existing Model T's. While this is not perfect, nor does it contain all the information a good inventory should have, such as current owner, location and VIN numbers (to prevent double postings), at least its' a start. Jim Patrick
PS. I can understand some folks being paranoid about divulging their name and address (I'm not one of them), but I can see no reason why one would choose not to post the VIN number of their T(s) for this record.
