At last! I've got Gary London's gift - the luggage rack for my 1924 touring!
It will be helpful for travelling around Tula this summer
This is my first trip this spring, and fitting the rack.
MANY THANKS TO GARY!
That's one of the neatest and most useful gifts a Flivverer can receive (The one on my car was a gift, too). _I notice you put some protective material between the clamps and your running board to protect your paint. _You can also protect the bottom of the running board by putting plastic milk bottle caps over the metal discs before tightening them.
I'm glad it finally made it to you!!!!! It looks good on your car!!!!!
Beautiful! I love to see pictures of your T.
Thank you Michael G, and Gary London.
Do drive carefully, and enjoy! W2
Boy, if that's not an international goodwill gesture, what is ? !!!

Just in time for VE Day tomorrow; a huge holiday in Russia.
How long did it take to arrive?
Off topic but USA, Russia, Australia and Ford related!
These jeeps, based on the Willys, used a Russian made version a of Ford B engine. They were produced until 1952.
The car in the video (which I took on ANZAC DAY recently) has an amazing history. Australian soldiers captured it in an ambush of the North Korean army during the Korean War. Current owner has 3 boxes of papers and official army records and photos as proof. After the war it was taken back to Australia and sold to a farmer. It was discovered and restored by a military vehicle collector in the 1980s who contacted the Soviet Embassy and visited the USSR for information and parts. The current owner, who I know, is looking to sell the car.
Here's another video I took on ANZAC Day;
Constantine, it was not direct shipping: my friend collects things in California, then ship them together - it's cheaper.
Any idea of how many Ts there are in Russia?
Less than 100, herewith at least 60 at Chernogolovka museum
All the Ts in Russia are recent imports from the USA or Europe with many of them not in running order. None of the very few Ts sold new in Russia have survived.
Too bad there are those awful step plates! I'm wondering what the one under the dummy door is for? Couldn't resist!
