I currently own only one T, an early 1916 Touring car. I am really considering expanding my "collection" by buying a '14 Touring. Just wondering how many of you own multiple T's and how many own just one?
Be careful! I am up to around 10 and have enough sheet metal for a couple more. It is amazing how they multiply.(I tell folks to not turn the lights off in the shop.)
Mine keep multiplying. Haven't passed up a good deal yet
Three, no room for any more.
three and 2 A's plus lots of 50's and 60's but T's are the favorite
Only one, a '25 Touring almost restored...
I have 3 complete and all the parts of #4 to make another driver. All 4 are 26's but only 3 have titles and only 1 runs and drives right now. The list is 1 tudor, 1 huckster, 1 touring, (wife's project car) and the parts will be a cut off touring made into a pickup/hillbilly truck. On my wish list is an early 12 touring.
I have four.
'15 Rajo Speedster.
'21 cut of TT/Fond Du Lac tractor.
I drive the Tudor year around and the open ones summer only.
Tractor not running yet...it was yard art for about 50 yrs before I got it. It's getting close to running.
Also have restored '40 Ford coupe and PU but drive the Ts the most.
Just a measly three, have room for four, so guess I am looking
Moving the '21 Autowa bodied touring to its garage space, the trailer is now available for storing another T. He He.
The 40 ford pickup is my all time favorite pickup.
I envy you.
My 28 ford open pickup comes in second on my list.
Well maybe a 32 open pickup could push it aside.
Three, 26 Tudor, 26 barn-fresh Roadster, 25 Fordor(for sale) and a very large building full of parts. Wish list includes a brass touring someday. Wife would like a Roadster pickup.
I only have the 1926 Tudor... I just received my disk brakes this morning from Texas T. I will be installing a Ruckstell next month...I finally found one and if all goes well with the deal and shipping(I sent the check,just don't know the person I sent it to) I hope to install it next month. Saying all this, when I finish all the upgrades to this one I want I may buy another if one comes my way....I really am interested in buying and rebuilding another 26 engine for a spare...I like driving the T and would hate for something to happen that would keep it parked for a long time.....so I would like to be prepared.....I have a nice hot rod "48 Studebaker truck" but it seems to stay in the garage since I have the T.....I seem to enjoy it more....
Of over a dozen old cars, only 6 are Model T's.
Just one, a '13 runabout. Plus three Brand Xs.
Bottom Line Up Front: 3 Ts
As I live longer, I think I understand better that I don't really own any of my Ts. They all had someone else's name on the title before they were in my possession and they will most likely have someone else’s name than mine in the future. I'm the current caretaker and I hope to one day pass them on or even sell them to someone that will give them a good home. Technically I own them -- or at least the state would say I owe taxes or need to purchase tags etc. if I want to drive them on the roads. And if things went south I would sell them rather than starve etc. but I would sell a lot of other things before the cars. So right now I'm the care taker for about 3 Ts or 4 if you count Donor. [You don't want to be a car with the name Donor -- it doesn't bode well for your future. But Donor was in a accident and was purchased because it has a lot of usable parts to repair / keep the others going. And then there is the collection of body parts one 1915-16 Beaudett front half of a touring with the wooden seat frame and a 1917-20ish rear seat tub with a metal seat frame. It would have been nice if they were both wooden seat framed or both metal seat framed sections. ]
More than how many Ts a person is taking care of, I think a more important question is, are we enjoying them? Having fun and enjoyment with one T is much better than 5 causing stress in our marriage or budget etc.
Hap l9l5 cut off
Too many, need to thin the herd. Time to start taking some apart.
I have 4.
As it turns out, most people I know own at least 1 Model T, but very few of them own only 1.
What is 1 Model T? A start.
2 Model T's are a pair.
3 Model T's are a collection!
I only have one, a '19 Runabout and it is probably the only one I'll ever have. Some day down the road, I might like a closed car as well. Most likely a Coupe.
5 whole ones.
Three assembled, plus a couple of projects.
4 whole ones.
Hap well put, we do not own the T's we are preserving them for the future generations
09 touring, 23 sedan, 23 touring 26 roadster and a pile of 15 chassis parts That makes 4 and a half.
1913 speedster, 1915 roadster pickup (daily driver), 1915 touring, 1927 speedster (daily driver) and enough parts to throw another speedster together along with close to 800 Model T accessories and counting.
Three. You need three. One to drive, one to work on, and one for parts. Now all three are running, so I just alternate between them.
'23 Roadster, '23 Touring, '27 Depot Hack, '29 Model A Briggs Town Sedan
(......fortunately, I am now out of storage room......)
Ahhhh,.....unless I buy an enclosed trailer,.....hmmmm.......
Had 3, now 2, but have a a 68 mustang and 67 chevelle to round things out. BUT, I know where that stinking A Coupe is sitting, which bugs me.
1911 Torpedo runabout
1922 Sedan (centerdoor)
Would love to add a '22 coupe to go w/ the sedan.
One till someone buys my model L
Seven and counting!
I have 4 T's -
'25 TT C Cab with Express Bed
'26 Roadster Pickup
'27 Fordor Sedan
looking for another...
Two. A '23 roadster and a '26 Touring Ute under restoration.
I have 2-1/2....the 1/2 is a speedster project that is shared with another model T owner & great friend.
Also enjoy owning/driving 1 & 2 cylinder early REO's.
None (yet). :-(
One in my profile.
Too many and not enough!
Just one T here as well...no plans for any more as the 3-car garage is full of 2 later jalopies.
Been through 4.
The first was the '20 Coupe, then the '19 Touring followed by a '25 Fordor and finally the '27 Tudor.
I loved the Touring and Tudor so much I sold the Coupe, bought a Model A and filled the other slot with my '25 Dodge sedan.
Got a '59 Chev too.......
Four going on twenty.......
I like that thought Royce!
I have 4, '12 Roadster pickup, '15 Touring, '20 Runabout, & a '25 TT firetruck. Pretty much all I can afford. And the barn's full. It seems best to have more than one as it is becoming obvious to me that at any given time, at least one will be "down".
1/2 of a Model T. I say one half because, the engine is dismantled. When I get the engine together, I'll have one Model T!
Ok, back to the point. I have a 1926 Model T Fordor Sedan.
22 Hack -favorite, complete
23 touring -complete
15 tourabout -project
15 touring -parts project hope to sell at Chickasha
25 chassis -project detour deluxe inspired
53 F100 -complete owned 40+ years
55 F600 -complete why did I buy it?
and a flock of vans - what was I thinking?
Just one, my '26 Touring project, but I could definitely make room for a T truck or a pie wagon style T.
I only have 1 "T" '27 roadster looking for another the rest of my list goes like this
'50 dodge PU (rat because it was too far gone)
'26 Buick (Current project)
'65 Corvair Convertible 140 4 speed
'74 MGB GT (every one should have one English car to drive them crazy)
'46 Plymouth P-15 (Fathers Day gift from wife 2007)
And because my wife complained that all of my old cars had transmissions she couldn't operate I bought her a '72 mercury Comet 302/auto then went to the flea market and got an airbrushed tag that reads Grandma's car.
I only have one '26 Tudor that is eating its way through my bank acct. now. However, I am hoping it gives birth to a black car touring someday.
26 sq cab TT restored, 23 Rdster highly modified, needs better disk brakes, a wood cab TT. 2-26-7 2 dr sedans, 1-26-7 touring, 1-26-7 rdster pickup, 1-assy T w/ a 13 Metz body, and enough chassis's to build 15 more, a 2 cy garden tractor built out of a 26-7 engine, a old dirt track acessorised T . I'm a Fordaholic
I thank the powers that be that I have a 2 car garage and that the modern occupies one space otherwise I don't know how far out of hand I'd have got over the years. Every hobby car I've ever owned was the one I'd keep for good. Until the next one came along.
3 drivers and a new engine going in the 4th which was a daily driver until I decided to rebuild it.
27 Touring (getting the new engine)
15 Roadster pickup truck

I have had 4 Model T's over the years. I have owned my 1914 T Runabout over ten years. The one any only. No room for another unfortunately.
Only the one, 'Mabel', our 1911 tourer. However, we are currently storing 'Luke', a very good friends 1913 tourer which we can drive any time too...
I have 8.Never met a T I wouldn't like to own.
Those of you wanting another, perhaps unrestored: there is a roadster well known to this forum In NM I saw In the classifieds... Priced right. Wonder if it sold.. No connection to seller o course.
I have 2 the 26 roadster (under restoration) and the 15 runabout (apart) Plus parts to build about 3 or 4 others
One that people would recognize as a car & one more that looks like some rusty stuff & only i can see a car in the making in it.
Just one - but when an if finance allows, I have dreams of more :-)
1926 touring that I have been driving for 43 years.
1922 coupe - nice original that I bought a year and 1/2 ago.
Also, a 1925 coupe and a 1914 touring restoration projects.
26 del. hack
All drivers. Never know when another one will follow me home.
Three, 09 and 13 touring, and 24TT (that I agreed to sell a few years ago to acquire another car, just haven't been able to part with it yet ).
Five up and running. One half way there and two future projects.
Three. No room for any more, but I do have almost enough parts for another '25 roadster pickup!
I've got a 15 runabout that I bought from Royce in 09'
Basically unrestored with 40-50 yr old paint. Great car almost stock I even replaced the bands with nos cotton.
They are holding up well. It has a water pump I rebuilt that works fine. Nope I ain't taking it off.
Oh my other antique is a 22' 490 Chevrolet touring, what I call a GM model T. It was my late fathers' car restored over 40 yrs ago. The clutch and gear box get to me but I sure like my driver side door and leather upholstery.
We have 5. A 1915 Gentleman's Roadster, 16 Touring, 26 Touring, 26 Speedster and 26 Coupe. Our 23 roadster which was used at the centennial for the assembly car was given to our nephew a couple of years ago for his 18th birthday. The car was named after his father, a police officer who was killed in the line of duty.
Earnie is that the whole family collection? LOL
I got 10 T's plus a couple of parts still left. I think!!! ???
Don't worry guys I can't drive any of them.
2 - I think
I own only a 25 touring. I want brass touring, but wife says I have to get rid of the 25 first. Maybe a new wife is in order.....
A '26 Coupe with an earlier engine, and a '27 numbers matching chassis that will become a coupe this year. Sold '19 Roadster, '24 Touring, '26 2-dr over the years. These may be the next to go.
I currently own 5. Over the past 40 years, 26 have passed thru my ownership.
