Yesterday I happen to be on a major North/South route and I could not believe all the Motor Homes and campers heading south. Some were pulling trailers with their daily driver in tow.
I did not see any Model T's on the trailers. I guess the T cars stayed in a garage up North???
I am sure the Texas coast was where they were headed to. Us locals call them snow birds cause they migrate like the ducks and geese.

I migrate from Northern New York to Central New Jersey for the winter, Am I a snowbird? This year my model T came with me.

We are looking for a 5th wheel toy hauler so one of our T's can join us.

Richard, among tractor guys that's called a John Deere starter.

Your correct, not enough torque even with light snow, was towing it back to the shop. That's why I'm adding a warford 2 speed under drive or grannie. Before the Model A versions they all used
a transmission or Ruckstell rear axle or there own designed reduction rear hubs. It ran fine on clear pavement.

We had a tractor with a John Deere starter when I was a kid, It was an International 560, the hardest starting tractor ever made, we would borrow the neighbour's John Deere in the morning and hook it onto the JD starter and get it going. The next tractor was a John Deere 4020, the first of several, I still use the last one father bought in the early 1970s, the last new 4020 sold by John Deere in our area.

Of course I'm kidding. I've got a bunch of 'snow bird' pals that trailer some really incredible cars down here each winter, to play with.

I thought WORK was the four letter word, if your retired. Model T-ing is a hobby.
