I prefer my toys in 12"-to-the-foot scale. Thanks.
Mike, I know it is Christmas time, but those are not trucks, they are toys. "Model T Toy Trucks" is what you should have called the post.
Ummmmm, It's sort of a joke.
Are jokes allowed on this forum?
Did you think I did not know they are toys?
I certainly enjoyed the humor. I have said before that we are all on different pages when it comes to humor.
I was happy to see there were a few Model T trucks that I could afford.
Merry Christmas all.
Got a call yesterday from a friend in SO-ORG. Apparently he has a TT flatbed I either didn't know about or forgot. He wants
to sell it. I am full up at two. He is asking $5K. It is a "barn fresh" kind of truck. Who can't afford $5K ?
Honestly, I saw no smily icon, so I was not "tipped off" that this was a humorous post. Other forums I frequent are overflowing
with creepy weird guys with their contrived "man caves" and delusional un-logic that cardboard cutouts of Marilyn Monroe and
"checkerboard" tile floors, car couches, and fake Coca-Cola stuff are cool. The toy cars play a key function in this scene, so I
took the original post as being a straight up message.
Honestly, boys and girls, this Model T hobby is GROSSLY inexpensive when thrown up against just about any other old car
restoration hobby going. Try restoring a 1914 Locomobile, or a 58 Bonneville for the price and availability of parts for a T !
Time for a reality check.
Nobody can take a joke anymore. I think it comes with age. If you want to see a good one, go read the post "warford 3 speed".....WOW
Burger, you did your best to indicate your humorous intent by putting a smiley face at the end of your posts.
If some of the younger members can educate the rest of us on the proper way to indicate humor in the texting world, it would be helpful.
In this case, the appended smiley face means (to me) that I am posting with good intentions.
I'm sure you have seen a classic car at a car show with a model of the car on the hood or somewhere on the car
So if someone has the real model t truck or one of the other cars these are modeled after this would be a great find.
Plus there are some nice real cars that are up for auction and plenty of man-cave stuff
