I hope I don't scare anyone with my Mug, But I some times wonder what the other MTFCA members look like. Here I is in my 14 T Runabout. The pictures on the wall behind my T are of my Wife's and my first wedding in February, 1976.
This is the only pic I have of me here on the office computer. I cut it down from a much larger collage so it will prob appear pretty small here. Taken a few years ago after a hike to some falls up in the mountains.
That's my granddaughter there.
Good idea, btw Mark! Some of the guys have posted a few pics but it would be nice to see more. I'll find one of me with mt T after I get home tonight.
This is us 3 years ago, not our car, but one that's just like what it will be when finished (after the '25 is done)
Everybody who's been around here for awhile has seen this old ham, but I'll post a picture anyway.
Steve, you may be an old ham, but I am ham fisted !!
Trying on the new hat for the 2013 Texas T Party.
this is me sitting here waiting to get my back fixed next month .charley
Sadly, no T with us here but Denise & I in our casa in the Ecuadorian Andes
This is me at the local tractor show last year.
Back after a successful job
Here I am:
Blue berry pick'n at neighbors farm couple of weeks ago. 4lbs of sweet FL berries
I really don't have any current photos but there use to be some of me when I was younger at the post office. Of course my name was a little different then but...
I think I found one of 'em Mike:
Man, that was a beating I won't forget for awhile!
Here's a link to a thread Richard Gould started on the same topic back in 2010.
This is Anja and me at one of the lunch stops at the Model T Centennial in Richmond in 2008.
(She's the better-looking one.... )
Wife says this is the best picture of me because I'm facing away from the camera. My granddaughter Lauren is in training as a future T driver an owner!
I like that picture a whole lot Bud!
This is me with my buddy Max. He was a rescue and still thinks he is a puppy after 8 years
Wow. Was that really four years ago?!?
Here I am with Spencer at this year's Flag Placement at Willamette National Cemetery.
And having fun in the snow last winter...
: ^ )
A lot of really great pics, folks. Nice to see 'em. Except for that mug shot of Mike. I could have left that one out.
Diane, Bear and myself near Carmel.
And where would the fun be in that? I thought it was a pretty good photo. I could've taken some soap and wash rag and washed my tongue but otherwise the picture is a fairly good representation.
Here is another picture of me with my First Car. A Brand New 1955 Ford that I got for my birthday.
Mark, I'll see your first car and raise you a first car. This one was about nine years earlier....
It was my car, but a neighbor is at the wheel and I am behind the car.
Don't blame me for broken screen
this was taken on the first day I got this "T"
and for good measure my Grandkids
here I am KGB
Kirk, Love the Vulture award!
I'll see your first cars and raise you a first truck.
The first T I drove, only about two years ago...Look, same haircut!
A few years ago
More recent, I'm on the left
Me in my green machine Clayton Paddison with his roadster and Tim Williams in his speedster.
If I have to.....
Dude, the driving pic is great! You got that Model T Smile. grin...
Wanted in all 51 states... LOL
This is 3 generations of Model T'ers. My Dad, Myself and my 11 year old son Calvin in front of Dads 1910 T.
This is Dad's 97th birthday. We spent it giving rides to all his friends at Autumn Leaves retirement home near White Rock Lake in Dallas. Of course he had to ride around the lake a few times too!
Here I am with my mother after our day trip with the Marmon
This was easy for me to do. I just posted a picture of me driving my truck a few days ago.
My other life...
This is me at the Petersen Museum, Los Angeles.
Let's make this a bit scary !!!
OK ... this is the real me and my T
Me, all gussied up at my parent's wedding 50th anniversary. Don't expect to see me in these duds too often. I'm more at home in jeans and a T shirt with some sort of tool in my hand.
Me and my grandfather, who built the 1919 Speedster in 1927.
And me with the Speedster (in the back) a few weeks ago at it's first cruise-in since 1979.
We took the dogs on holiday this week to a 500 year old sanctuary in Spain. They aren't particularly religious but they do enjoy the quiet. This wheel (or what's left of it) is over 4 ft high and certainly never turned under the power of an internal or external combustion engine.
It might have been made at this blacksmith's shop. The iron basket on the wall behind me is a street lamp. A burning log provides the light!
My wife Jeanne took a slefie of us as I was driving during the KY tour this month. I'm the one with the beard. :-)
Wife and me in 16 on tour.
Meg and I for christmas photo. I pieced parts back together just to make the shot, and took it all apart again
Should have had one sitting in the T, but I couldn't find one that also showed my face.
My assistant and I out on a club tour last week. Yes, that is my best side.
hehehe, here is what's left of me with my home built camper,only picture that I am in that I can find on the computer.
Nice to see someone who builds instead of buys!
Good on yer.
Me at my last birthday party.
Chuck, drive carefully, especially northeast of Paso Robles.
Always drive carefully. Just got me a new Porshee.....
This is me, and the two best things in my life, then the T's
Oh and my A ..... And then the dog.
(Wife left daughter on your right)
Here I'm checking out my 10 yr old grandson in my T.
I'm not really as grouchy as I look in the pic!
just got my front wheels back together for my TT, about 2 years ago
my wife, who does all my postings
I'm tired of hiding. Here I am.
Me, one of my grandson and the neighbor boys. Still haven't got this picture posting from the IPad right.
John - I know about those crowded Model T Rides!
Please excuse me for not having a photo of me with any of my Model T's. This is the only photo I have of me on my iPad.
I'm sorry Danial. I knew I'd hear something from someone. At least it came from a friendly source.
Does this help any?
I still weigh the same, but 35 years later, things have kinder gone soft. (in more ways than one)
At my brothers wedding
50 years later with our oldest grandson
I'd post a picture of me but, I work in radio for a reason!!!
Since the title of this forum said OT, I will attempt to post a picture taken at the "Texas" tour a few month back.
My wife and myself
I had a little problem getting the picture to the size that I could post.
Army Air Corps one, Japan Zero?
Thanks everyone for posting. Great thread!!!It's very nice to put names to faces!
Here's Jennie and I from our wedding in 2012 and the Old Car Festival...sorry, couldn't find a recent T photo....
And to Royce..this is the car I put the Jones speedo in...works perfectly!
You can see a wee bit of my '15 T in the pic above
Totally agree, Darren. It's great to see all these guys and their toys, Model T or otherwise.
That sure is a beautiful car you and your missus are in. I don't think I've ever seen one of those.
Well Darren, now I can say I've seen you in person. I just didn't know it at the time.
OK, but I'm not as old as I look.
My youngest daughter in the back on the left, neighbor/friends children riding with us.
Give me back my goggles kid.....
it looks like the high cost of a model k was primarily due the amount of sheet metal it took to make the hood!
Great pic Rob. Nice looking family and I sure do love that car. What a beautiful machine.
Thanks for all of the Great Posts and Pictures. Now I know whom I am Reading and Talking too. Keep them coming!
Beautiful car Rob, and great family! Love that K!
Dave...we have to look each other up sometime We're not far from each other!
Danial, thank you for your kind words!
Dave... I think I've seen you bombing around Woodstock in that beautiful runabout in the last year or so. A bunch of us were wondering who the nice T runabout belonged to We were thinking it was an '18
my monster T
Clayton, yes, it's a two man hood. i wish it were made of aluminum, it's a bear for two to lift off and over the front fenders.
Danial, thank you.
Dean, with steel wheels, does it meet approval as an Amish conveyance?
I like the "buddy" seat too.......
I take a lot of pictures but seldom of me. Here is one:
I spend too much time in this position. Note the head gasket.
Back in the days when I was a dashing, young aviator with a full head of hair and an admiring passenger.
And, thirty-some-odd years later, when I became a bald couch-potato with a pesky back-seat driver.
dressed up for a wedding
With the Trimoter when it came to Knoxville this month.
Me and Max in the Tudor
Me walking my daughter down the isle.Me pushing my new project up a drainage ditch with water in it so I can bring her home.
This was taken a few years ago on a HCCA tour
Me and Dolores at the Auto Show San Diego
Found this picture on my old computer. Tried to resize it and post, since it shows me in my T.
Hope this works. I don't know why the picture appears so big. I am not very good at this resizing thing!
I'm the one with the glasses.
Is that a Fleet biplane?
Me pulling in Bennington with the '30 AA (monster - two 4 speed transmissions and a Diamond T cement truck rear end).
Here is a picture of my Great Uncle and I, in my 22 T. The last time he saw it running was in 1937 when he was 4. It was parked in the woodshed in 1942 and I pieced back together 69 years later. The smile on his face was priceless to see it together and running again. It has been in the family since new.
I wasn't going to but what the hell. There's enough gray's here to feel comfortable. This was my first experience with putting the 1 man top up. Don't want to think about the 2 man. Goofin', goofin' goofin' then BOING up it went. Much easier after that 1st. try.
Yep, there's plenty of Gray. But I'm pleasantly surprised to see so many younger folks here too.
I see a lot of guys missing, so I'll add a couple of them.
Sorry not to share a photo of my Model T which has been in the family since 1955. It unfortunately has
had to take a backseat to to my job which is mechanical restoration of early cars and running The Old Motor.
I hope to get the T back out in a year or so.
This is a 1912 Mercer out on my test route last fall.
only pic i have, taken in florida this spring
It Looks like a Fleet
Kinner engine, one piece upper wing and ailerons only in the lower wings
Don Watson asked me to post the photo below of him. He is a wealth of information on Ts – especially the Town Cars.
Respectfully posted for Don,
Here is the photo of me from the website for my other job. Part-time instructor at the local J.C.
I am impressed with all the hansom guys that are willing to share pictures of themselves.
To add a bit of balance I will add a small bit of un-hansomness.
Me behind the wheel of our 1919 in the early 60's
And again in 2011
Here I am on the right at a panel discussion in California a few years ago.
And at another panel discussion in China -
Finally a couple pictures they use during promotions such as the class I will be teaching at the SMTA conference in Chicago in Sept.
I don't have a pic of me and a model t, but here is one with me and my nephew. He does love model ts. Honking the horn and trying to turn the steering wheel keeps hims busy for about half an hour!
Great picture with the punkins. I used to wear Oshkosh until they went yuppie and quit making men's sizes.
Steve, Happy belated birthday!
My dad and I with our T's.
This morning I was thinking about these pictures and it occurred to me that while Bruce McCalley is no longer with us as a direct forum participant, we do refer to him often. He still informs us through his writing. So here's Bruce.
At Chickasha (with water), March 2009. You other guys can ID yourselves if you want.
Greg Ragland -
You didn't want to get your tires wet?
Steve's above Picture includes:
Doug, who took my vulture picture.
