Recently new to the forum and was wondering if there was a Model T club in Georgia.
GO to the MTFCA HOME PAGE AND LOOK UNDER CHAPTERS,
Welcome to the Forum
I used to live in Marietta, June 62 thru Dec 82
Lived in Marietta GA From Oct 1982 until Sep 1998
Employed by Lockheed and then moved to Savannh
for about 6 years and then moved back home.
I've already looked but nothing in GA. I was born in Marietta, Then Moved to Jekyll Island about 1.5hrs from Savannah. Small world.
Logan, I am pretty sure that I have seen posts on the forum from people in Georgia. The title of this thread may eventually bring a few of them out...
Logan, I have been on the Social Security Tour in Ga several times and there have been many T's present.
Follow this old forum thread. Go down to Ed's email address. Drop him an email and my bet is he can put you in contact with a T owner in your area. If he can't- the Headknocker can.
If you don't have any luck contacting Ed, then drop a note to:
NORTH GEORGIA T'S
PO Box 672
Fairmount, GA 30139
There's Hal Davis from Lyons GA. He's sure to post soon I'd think
I have seen listings in the classifieds mentioning Georgia
Welcome to the forum and the hobby. Is this your first T or another new to you T?
As far as nearby local clubs you will have to drive a little ways – as there is not one right in your town. And in your case the South Carolina club centered on Columbia (actually Lexington – but it touches Columbia, SC and more folks know where Columbia is than Lexington). We have several folks from GA and FL in the club. And because of that we actually move the meeting location around so more folks can drive their T etc. I.e. if it’s 30 miles away it is easy to take the T and if it is 100 miles away the modern car look nice.
Of the next 3 events in our news letter:
October 4 Oliver Hardy Festival (that’s the official name – Laurel and Hardy Festival makes more sense to many of us.)
October 17-19 Model T’s to Olar Festival/Walterboro Weekend Tour
November 14 Day Trip to Danny’s Farm
The day trip near Clyo, GA is the closest to you – about 80 miles or so.
I’m 99% sure Hal Davis is also a member. The web site is located at: http://www.scmodeltford.org/
And if this is your first T – please review the safety items on the thread at: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/411944/483517.html?1412363002 I could post them again, but I don’t know if this is your first or 50th Model T.
Also for those who may have missed it, Logan is looking for a source for the two front top irons and bow for a 1923 roadster (see: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/411944/482195.html?1411752925#POST664582 ) I’m certain that Mark at Model T Haven see: http://www.modelthaven.com/ and click on parts would have a left and right pair. He is in business – needs to pay the light bill, insurance and staff (that would be himself etc.) so he is selling retail. But he should have a pair. And someone locally may have a pair or a complete top available. And of course placing an “wanted ad” in the classified section of the site could also help.
Again, welcome to the forum.
Hap l9l5 cut off
I'm in Alpharetta, GA.
Jamie in Savannah.
Have you been out to Keller's flea Market and seen the two Model T.s There, or in the building where there is an engine-Transmission set-up or the Early HD ?
This is my first Model T. I've had many antique cars/trucks, just not this old. I've been to Keller's several times myself. It's about an hour north of me. Thanks a lot for the info Hap.
Welcome to the affliction. Is that an MGB in the background?
It looks to me like a Midget or an A-H Sprite.
It's a '72 MG Midget. I had 4 of them at one point lol.
I'm in Lyons (Near Vidalia). We are members of the South Carolina club.
One correction to Hap's dates. The Danny Harden event is November 8, not the 14th.
Awesome thanks so much. Had to change out a tire today, longest ordeal ever!
I'm in Fitzgerald, GA. Welcome to the club!
Hi, I am just south of Marietta, very close to Mableton, GA.
I Now have a 1925 Model T Coupe. Can I call it a "Doctor's Coupe"? I am not a doctor, but I live a mile from the hospital. Just an idea.......
Greetings to all.
Austell, GA. (The mailing address)
Hi Logan- Mike here from McDonough. About 30 miles south of ATL. I was in Harlem GA for the Laurel & Hardy festval with my Touring last weekend. Met some nice T folks from South Carolina.
My wife's from Bainbridge. Does that count?
So there are some T's in Georgia lol. I'm closer to FL and SC than I am to the Atlanta area unfortunately. I'd love to drive around with a bunch of other Model T's. I believe mine just shattered a Babbitt thrust washer, nice. Loud clanking/ratcheting sound when applying brakes, does it a little intermittently while driving, but extremely loud when using brakes. Everything looks okay behind the transmission inspection plate, so it looks like I'm cracking open the diff. -Logan
Still looking for this part guys, if anyone could help lol
