Nice day for an early Tour and Car show. It's going to be about 80 degrees today. Are you sure this is February?? My 1914 T Runabout at the front.

Mark, I am resisting making any rear-end remarks.......Looks like a great time. I am still getting off the chill from the rainstorm we just had. Not warm at all. Soon enough we will all be able to drive without 7 layers of clothing.

Great looking car Mark. Those Runabouts really have the look.

Erich I'd LOVE to even drive with 7 layers! This is the worst winter we've had here in Ohio in I don't know how long. 2 inches of snow again today. 1 inch of salt! Tomorrow evening, another 3-5" snow. Sick of it! Seems like we'll never be able to get going on a ride until April, March here can produce some super bad winter weather, and ice.
I remember my late father saying.."God took an enema right over Ohio!" Then dad moved to AZ to live out his final years.

We have only had 1.23 inches or I should say inch of rain since last July 1st. It going to be a long hot mega Forrest Fire Summer. Could some one FedX some snow to us?

For Tim Wrenn - Tim, you should come to Arizona. We're in Tucson and it was 85 and very sunny today.

I looked, but we didn't see any T's out and about.

Come on down....

Keith: Oh man, don't tempt me! It's snowing like crazy right now, wind blowing 30 MPH, I'm babysitting a fellow T-friends house, as lucky him, he's in Florida for a month! If I could get to his trailer I think I'd be tempted to grab it, load up my '12 and head out! My sister lives in Chandler, and a neice in Albuquerque. One of these days......

Mark-
Are those headlamps electrified? What type of lenses are those? Spreadlight?

Keith
The head lights are still gas with the burners inside. I do not have a Gas Generator though. I have clear glass lenses I am going to put in to replace the Spread light lenses. The Glass Reflector Mirrors are are the original J W brown Model 16 ones. They have their name in the glass. Here is a picture of the second and third owners an uncle and his nephew taken in July 1947. The uncle bought the car from the original owner in 1930. I have the documentation.
