Im still in the hunt for a car that fits my budget. While the budget grows every week in still a bit shy of a few that are on my radar. I found a nice looking 25 Fordor that fits me but its a long drive. How much wood in a 25? Im well versed and equipped for metal but not so well for wood.
Dang that's what I thought. If its in OK/middle of the road shape should I be scared as a first timer?
Perhaps there is a member in Oklahoma that can look at it for you ....
Where at in Oklahoma is it ?
You will be money and time ahead and will have substantially less headaches if you purchase a good car instead of settling for a piece of junk just because it's cheap.
Save up your money and stay away from a car that needs to have its wood replaced.
Seeing that you live in Michigan, there should be plenty of good Model Ts available within a reasonable driving distance. Note: most antique cars change hands via word of mouth without being formally advertised. If you are merely looking in classifieds, Craigslist or eBay, you are limiting your options.
Thanks guys, Im just starting my trip down T lane so Im not part of the "network" yet. With a young family, a busy job and other hobbies that take time and motivation its hard to travel to any of the formal T events as none of them seem close to me. Top that off that Im not really a people person and it makes it that much more difficult to fit into a formal group. I also am one of those guys that if im part of a group Im PART of it, not just show up eat my hotdog and leave, I want to work and make a difference where I can. Im just wanting a good old car to tinker with and drive to town (12 miles), grab a few parts and stroll back home. Im looking, $4300 now and adding every week. Might be a while but Ill find one. Don't want a show car, hell even a little rust and dents adds character
Robert, I sent you a PM.
