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.

Hi Joe,

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.

Hey Randy,
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!

Bob

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.

Hey, Bob!
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!"
