Well after a long winter I drove the Roadster for the first time this year. I had replaced the fuel system with original parts and after cranking her for a while I could tell she wanted to start. Finally caught and after I switched to magneto the Vaporizer settled into a nice slow smooth idle. It was great to be behind the wheel again...
Aint it though, Randy?!? Like dying and going to heaven! We've sure endured a rotten winter in this neck of the woods, especially you folks up and down the east coast. I was a little more fortunate in being able to get my first ride, albeit only half an hour, on a rare "mild" day in March. Been getting several rides in now that it's getting a bit better out. Enjoy the ride! And more to come.
Randy, I like getting the T out for the first time on Easter Sunday, go to church then the big family get together for the Bell side of family. There is a lot of old cars in the family and a few muscle cars so they will all be out today.
This is the Roadster you worked on a while ago for Tim Morsher. It sure is a nice ride, starts right up and it's such an original car.

That's the trouble with living on the east coast
Out here in San Diego, I've already had plenty of time to drive my car, break things, and look forward to spending the next couple of months doing repairs. . . . .all the while you're enjoying driving yours!
Works both ways. Have fun enjoying your car!
We sure miss the old girl. She has a great home now, though ! Joe Bell takes care of a lot of folks in these parts.
Come on up here to Green Bay! (Still had a remaining patch - about 5'X10' - of snow on the north side of the house.) We've got a family member in San Diego... We say "Suffer!"
