Was just going through the book of pictures i got when i recently purchased my T, and this was stuck behind another pic showing the restoration in 86...Love her both ways!
John - just noticed you are in Norton. Am doing a preservation on a T doodlebug right now that spent her entire life (car and doodlebug life) in Norton. That will reflect on her hood when I'm done with her.
John! She's lookin' pretty pitiful in the picture there - but holy smokes that's the same car in your profile pic? That's wild. Really cool to have pictures of before and after.
Ron, that sounds very cool, have any pics of the progress? Would love to see it.
I tried topmost some pictures, but they were all too big. Will have to try again. The doodlebug was originally used at a sawmill in Norton. Hood graphics and buildup on the back will reflect that.
Tried to post....
Ron, thanks for trying...love that tractor BTW.
Thanks John. Will try with the pictures again - the one I had was too big. The tractor in my profile pic is my '25 Shaw conversion. I found her outside Philadelphia in 2012 and it took me about a year to go through her. Here is the link to last year's forum thread where I was (sort of) documenting the progress of my work (it also contains before pics of my Norton girl):
Try this again:
