That's cool! Every time I see snow mobile T's now the front fenders are gone. It looks really wild with them still in place.

Not factory side curtains either!

My aunt Grace delivered mail and kept her T roadster until she died in 61-62. It had a snow bird kit and she ran it with the front fenders. Sometimes it had standard wheels on the front instead of skis. I guess it depended on the weather. I wrote an article for the T times years ago that had a few pictures of it. Those were taken in Jan 1928 in southwestern Michigan. The snow was as high as the top of the car.

My dad remembered her using that T in horrible weather in the 40-50's as a kid even though she had a newer car. Having to go down rural roads that may not see a snowplow for a couple days likely meant you had better be sure of what your driving. I imagine getting a late 40's early 50's sedan stuck was a lot easier to do than the T.

Having moved out of Michigan years ago, I don't worry about getting stuck in snow. Feel sorry for those that have to deal with it, shovel it, start car 15 minutes early to warm, scrape ice, brush snow, shovel drive, etc.

Great pictures, Jay!

Same car, same coat on the hood, but different person? Or if it is the same person, maybe in the top photo she is a young girl? Notice the height difference!

The side curtain look like mine!
