Hey Jay, I miss the accessory of the day!
I'll second that!
I'll try and line up SOME NEW ONES next week.
In the mean time, check out the 545 different Model T accessories I've posted here under "ACCESSORY OF THE DAY" over the last five years. they can be searched through with Google or the keyword search engine here.
Haha, I have definitely done that before sometimes. I'll open up a forum year and hit ctrl+f and then search "accessory" and just go down through and check them out.
At the same time, there's just something about opening up your internet browser and rubbing your hands together and thinking "I wonder what the AotD is today!?"
I do love all of your posts and some of my favorites have been when someone asks about something and BAM! You have a perfect condition example along with original packaging and manual, oh and yours has the correct doo-dad over here that the original person's is missing.
I will again add my "Thank you Jay!" A wonderful collection you do have.
Hope to see you in Auburn!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
You ever think about putting all these accessories in a book? Since you seem to be able to access so many of them compiling them might be a good idea. It won't make the best seller list but I'd sure own one.
A fellow by the name of Jim Kenealy, here in Seattle, WA published a series of three books of nothing but Model T accessories & photos back in the late 60's - early 70's, I believe. Used ones show up on Ebay once in a while.
I think that Floyd Clymer may have beat him to it.
Charlie,I am actually toying with the idea of publishing a digital E-book rather then a printed copy.
I have Clymer's book and one other that claimed to be about T accessories but really had a lot of other business in it. I'm talking a book strictly about after market stuff like the old JC Whitney catalogs used to show. The weird and the useful. I'm in no matter what format.
