Given that's such an early T and given that guy's last car was probably a horse, how much do you think he actually knows about the engine?
Thanks again Jay!!
Look at those skinny wheel spokes!
if my 10 looked like that someone might give me what i want for it!!! is that brass plate on the brake lever.charley
Well Henry my guess is he knows about that engine as much as we all did when we first got our Model T's. But I think he is hooking up his laptop computer to check for any engine problems.
I have a hard time relating to men wearing suits while looking under the hood. Of course, I usually only wear suits to weddings, funerals, and church if the weather is cold.
I must remember, though, that in the old days men wore suits when on picnics, or when hiking in the mountains. And I can remember my dad wearing a suit when he drove to work, and then changing into "old" clothes to do the actual work. The "old" clothes were an old worn suit and worn white shirt. His clothes were either the "best" or the "old" ones! Attached is a picture of a family picnic in 1942. I am the oldest child in the front row.
I couldn't open Upload Attachment, so the post is here
Who's the sailor?
That was the reason for the picnic. Cousin Dayton had just graduated from navy Boot Camp in San Diego and was home on leave. Later two of the other men in that picture also enlisted in the navy.
That looks like a Petty Officer insignia on his sleeve. You don't get those just out of boot camp.
