My sister-in-law likes to go on tour with us but it is getting increasingly difficult for her to get in and out of any of my T's. After thinking about this with my son, he suggested I look at the single step used on small camping trailers. I ordered one and spent a little time with a welder in the shop. I mounted it using the original bolts holding the running boards. I used wing nuts so it would be easy to move to another car. You have to look hard to see it when it is folded back but it is easy to unfold. Works slick.

I was just talking about doing this the other day with a late 70's something Model T friend.

Where did you order from???

A friend of mine tours in a 12 Caddy. His passenger has a single step stool that she pulls up into the car with a rope tied from the bow to the stool when shes done haha!

Tom Strickling: I googled "trailer steps" and found several suppliers of camping equipment. The steps cost about $60.00 with free shipping. You have a choice of suppliers but only a few manufacturers. Dick C.

The last T I bought was from an old timer who used a cinder block as a step to get into the car. I'm glad he didn't think of your fix R.S. !

Charlie B.--I guess I don't understand your comment. You would rather have a cinder block on the running board or in the back seat than a fairly unnoticeable step slid under the running board??? Dick C.

Charlie means he's glad that the old-timer didn't pull the cinder block into the car with a rope like the passenger in the '12 Caddy.
