In Ralph's Idiot Light thread Rich Eagle posted a humorous self portrait which inspired Carl Klem to suggest a special thread. Being a shameless ham, I'll start.
1915 Rumble Seat
Celebrating the dog days of summer
I like it.
Whooooh....easy there Steve....you might have slipped and uh......spilled that beverage!
Are you leaning on the T or is it holding you up?
The only one I have (so far) is in the assembly car in the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn...
Methinks the cabin fever virus is spreading!
Post yours before spring. Only 42 more days.
Look out where you drive your T.
Dang ! Sorry this contagious. But fun
Also, nice (?) 2 see the faces behind the names
The know-nothing newbie
Bob, how often do people ask you the year and make of your car?
Hey Steve aren't your pics "Jelfie's" ??? ;-)
I just groaned more on this thread than most of the reaaaaaly long boring ones. I love it though. Will have to work on a "Jelfy" of my own.
You'd be surprised how many people don't notice the license plate, Steve. In fact, the question I'm most often asked is, "What year is that?".
The oddest question came from a lady who, with a perfectly straight face, asked, "Is that a Rolls Royce?"
Then there was the guy who asked me whether the radiator was solid gold or just plated.
Other oft-asked questions are:
"How fast can it go?"
"I don't know."
"Did you buy it new?"
"Yes, I'm the original owner."
"Guess parts are hard to find, huh?"
"I can pick up the phone, order any part I need and have it delivered to my doorstep the next day."
"That's a replica, right?"
"A replica would be more expensive to buy than an original."
"Guess they're very rare, huh?"
"There are four that I know of, right here in this neighborhood."
"When was the last one built?"
"December of 2001."
"Where do you get tires for a car like that?"
And my favorite answer to my least favorite question is, "If I didn't tell my wife how much I paid for it, I'm certainly not going to tell you!"
Bob, I'm gonna use that.
BREAKFAST of CHAMPIONS!!!!
Richard.........I hope those are well done.
Richard, I guess we'll be calling you "Sparky" after that breakfast!
Things a little slow in Kansas Steve?
After a breakfast like that you should be firing on all cylinders
If you eat them with the right amount of juice they go "Snap Crackle and Pop."
Now that is a GREAT Selfie Jay. And with a DU4.
Good lookin' Goggles Bob. You definitely need a Speedster.
You don't have to be crazy to do this stuff, but it sure helps!
Actually Bob, most of us started out okay,.....the "crazyness" seems to develop as you get deeper into the hobby!
It may be the Vanadium!
Richard, Must be, because Delirium isn't on the periodic chart!
I always thought insanity was hereditary.
I got mine from my kids!
Aaahhh,......that's it! I've got 4 kids, 16 grandkids, and 7 great grandkids! So it's no wonder, huh? You guys just gotta' cut me some slack, okay?
Harold, I'd cut you some slack but I haven't found any to cut yet.
Well here we go roadster full of grandkids
then this is the day I got the "T"
and I thought I would go camping
(the trailer actually belonged to my step-father
Have any of you shown your wife this thread? Some of these entries could be considered "grounds".
Rich does it again. People often type LOL when they don't really, but not me. LOL on lunch brake.
A skinny guy behind a fat man steering wheel!
Richard, Looks like the makings of a mesothelioma Claim!
TESTING SHOCK ABSORBERS.
I know a guy who's addicted to brake fluid.
He says he can stop anytime.
Steve's rumble seat idea isn't as out of place as it may seem - here's a 1917 British ad reproduced in the new book about Model T's in England; http://www.modeltbook.co.uk/index.html
Still looks a bit dangerous in curves..
We're going to need a lot more rubber rooms...
Not as creative as many of you but it is one a friend of mine took while we were on a tour to the Oregon Gardens.
Well then,.......that would be a "friendie" Erich, NOT a "selfie"!
