I have been in contact with a new Model T'er in the Middletown, Pa area that could use a buddy to help him with his Model T. I recently rebuilt coils for him and have been emailing him regarding several questions about his T. If there is anyone in this part of Pa. that could help him, that would be great. His name is Bill Leonard and I would be glad to send his contact information if you would respond to this post. He asked me to make this request for him.
my name is John Leffler , I live just a short distance from Middletown ,Pa. I live in Lebanon ,Pa.
That's great! One of the best things about this forum as the ability to ask for help when you need it, and it appears.
This is great. Thanks John. I forwarded your email to Bill. I certainly appreciate your help!
I am in York, Pennsylvania (Thomasville, actually), maybe 45 minutes from Middletown. All my experience is with non-starter cars, if that matters.
I'm in Marietta Pa. Just 20 minutes south on 441.
I live in Palmyra, just a few miles from Middletown.
As Howard Cosell would say, "A veritable plethora of assistance."
Good Morning everyone! I am the Middletown PA Model T'er who Brent referred to! I've since joined the MTFCA (allowing me to post on the Forum) and have made contact with a member from Hummelstown PA (3-miles from my house). To all of you, thanks for the posting...and (probably) in advance for some contacts and questions!
Bill, you may already be aware of the AACA fall meet every October in Hershey. The traffic makes it hard to miss. But if you haven't been to it, do check it out. There's always a lot of Model T stuff, along with all the other antique cars and parts. Lang's and other parts dealers are there, so you can order parts ahead of time and save shipping. MTFCA and MTFCI both have places to sit and rest, get literature and info, and visit.
Here's a little something for new Model T owners: http://dauntlessgeezer.com/DG80.html
Hi Steve! Thanks for the note, and yes I'm very aware of the Fall AACA Meet in Hershey. I retired from The Hershey Company a few years ago. Every year, my son and I take Friday and Saturday and tour the fields. My wife and I actually started touring the event in the mid 80's with some college friends. This year I'll have extra things to look for and plenty of time before October to visit the suppliers' sites and get some of those much needed parts. Many thanks for your input!!!!! Hope to keep talking with you as things progress.
