1926 ford model T medical edition - $15000 (Eaton rapids)
...and creative prices.
Punctuation is such a drag.
Since this is the rare and elusive "medical edition" is that rarer than a "doctors coupe" ??? Punctuation, and capital letters where they are needed is a dying art. Im not the best in the world, but, at least I try.
I think this may be a first. Haven't heard this before. Anybody else? It sure sounds professional!
we all know medical costs are rising, so thats the reason for the high price i suspect
Ain't never went to no gooder skools ....
Does Hagerty offer malpractice insurance?
Oh Burger, that don't mean nuthin'.
Is that the real Channel Green?
tryin ta use all them little marks givs him a hedake
What's with this "edition" stuff? I've seen "touring edition", "roadster edition", etc. Reveals the seller as being uninformed. Anything else they say is total hogwash. Funny too because I suspect they use the term "edition" to make it seem like they're knowledgeable.
I had a depot hack that Ronald Regain once rode in would that have made it the Presidential Edition....?
CRAP NOW LOOK AT THE MONEY I MIGHT HAVE LOST ON THAT ONE!!!
A bit of thread drift for sure, but speaking of presidential (or in this case vice-presidential) editions, what happened to Hubert Humphrey's T?
H.H. had a Model A.
So you're implying I should stop calling my jalopy the "Farmer's Edition?"
According to this older thread, HH owned both a Model T and a Model A:
I think that term started when companies would "Edition" a vehicle. The "Eddie Bauer Edition" Ford Explorer from the 90's. The "Harley Davidson Edition" Ford pick ups I see driving around. If I ever sell my truck, I'll call it a Stake Bed Edition Ford TT and ask $15,000 FIRM!
I stand corrected.
Thank you Mark.
Well fellas now that you have all had your fun;
That car is across the road from me the last I knew. It belonged to a founding member of the Central MI T club named Max Frisioski (sp?). Max was very proud of his car and very kind to me when I first joined the local club and had bought my first T..also a '26 coupe at age 17. Max died years later and his son became the "new" owner. The son had serious health issues and each summer I went to the house to get the car running again as by then I was a "seasoned" T guy, in part thanks to Max. Eventually I talked the son into selling the car and my neighbor bought it.
Now for all your fun (shame). My neighbor is disabled and wants to sell it. I don't know if he ran the ad or if he has a "broker-author" as the C-list indicates it might be in a new location. He might have sold it to someone else who is just trying to flip it. Point of fact is that the neighbor offered to give me the car last year and I told him no, would each of you done the same or would you have taken advantage of that "opportunity"?
The car is sound and presentable. I put in a new set of Ron's coils in it and rebuilt the coil box along with other minor things but he wanted a dist. installed and I didn't argue, just did it. Yes it does have a Model A visor. The neighbor nearly lost both legs due to medical issues and may have written the ad while medicated or again somebody else may be a broker. Regardless, I think very few of us here have ever been "published" and we are mostly just old car guys that use simple tools and methods to fix junk. We don't always know the full story and I don't either.
Now that all of you editors know more of this story go help somebody out with something. I don't know who wrote the ad and don't care, you can see what it is. The neighbor is a very bright and multi-tallented guy who can fix anything but has had serious life challenges for several years. It could be any of us tomorrow.

Some of those modern touch-screen iPads, iPods, smartphones, whatever, are hard to figure out how to even use the punctuation marks.
I have not figured out how put a question mark at the end of the sentence when I use my iPad, so I use my PC when I post on this site.
I'm sure the Medical Edition model T was supposed to be a joke. Maybe a play off Doctor's coupe.
I think the seller meant it's the "Obama Care" edition. It doesn't work.
Well said Tim.
And the ad does have an "or best offer"
