The wheels look too nice. Gotta hit some muddy roads and dirty them up.

Great looking truck. It looks like it's given plenty of service and has plenty more to give! It will be a hit at the show. Have fun!!!

Ronnie,

Looks like you will have a lot of fun at the car show. I see a battery mounted. Do you have the optional starter? And if so do you do anything to help prevent folks from accidently stepping on the starter switch? I find it is easy to activate them by mistake and I know they are there.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

That's how I like to see 'em! I agree with Steve---mess those wheels up a tad.

Use 'em and abuse 'em, yes.

Cutesy car show, not for this TT man. :-)

Go use that thing like a rented mule and SHOW people what
they were meant to do. Not sit around in some sweltering parking
lot.

Ken, ... sounds pretty messed up to me. :-)

Ronnie, ... let's make sure that cooler has a lot of surface rust.
And make sure you get plenty of wood cut with that buck saw. ;-)

Car shows with an unrestored T are a lot of fun -

The car is different than what people normally expect to see.
You get to talk with a bunch of people, and share our hobby.


Like Ronnie, I let the kids sit in the car, and parents love taking pictures.
For the most part the kids are respectful of the car, but if they are not I just say please be careful it old and breaks easily.

I do a crank demonstration a few times an hour just for fun that gets a lot of attention.

Taking mine to one next Saturday. It's always a hit with the crowd. I take advantage of the opportunity to educate others on the T.
