The sun came out and I have fresh king pins in so I had to get the "Bucket" out for a spin!



She's "rough" but the drive train is fresh and she is exactly the way I want her.

Yeah but I bet she goes down the road with her head held high telling the new flashy cars let's see how you are loved when you are my age if you are still with us!

Great little pickup John! We had a rare day above 55 here in cesspool Ohio so I got my '20 Runabout out for a spin too, took some stills & a couple of vids just to send to my working buddies!! They wouldn't have believed me if I didn't. Can't take my '12 Roadster pickup out yet 'cause I only have it on "storeage" insurance until May.

Hope to have your twin (a '15) on the road this summer. Maybe in time for the joint tour. :-) :-) :-)

P.S. Is that Red hood Steel? It looks familiar.

Is that the standard position for the tail light it looks like it could get hit easy. I have a 15 touring but it only to the level of a running chassis, I have most of the body parts except the center section. I ordered the parts from Howell's Sheet Metal in Texas and never received them. I sent him over $600 in advance. After several phone calls and promises to ship the parts they still never arrived, so there I sit with a $600 gap between the fenders.

Be patient with Howells. My body panels took over 3 months, but they did eventually come. No one ever answers the phone, they do not return emails, and on the rare occasion some one did answer the phone, I was always told they would ship next week

Nice T why would you want to change anything? It is old, it is a T and it has character. Mine is similar, and I don't care if it is not perfect to others, it runs

Like it John,
Several years past I picked up a 16 like yours a barn fell on. Replaced the splay box made from CVG fir and dented up from loads with a nice oak box then put the original back on it simply looked better. At my age the non demountable wheels were replaced with demountable. This summer I plan to make the pickup run dents rust left in.

Bob,

The hood is steel.

David,

Home made tail light brackets. They do not extend beyond the fenders.
