It`s been almost 4 years since my T followed me home. I live in PA. and another winter is fast approaching, I am trying to get all the paint work done before it gets to cold to paint in my small garage. I hope to final assemble by the end of spring so I can learn to drive it, in a large open parking lot. can you imagine being 64 years old and need driving lessons again. well, I started driving an old ford truck in the potato fields when I was 10, so maybe with 54 years under my belt since my last driving lesson it will be easier this time. a couple pictures.

Very beautiful car you have there Ken and learning to drive them is the best part. Good luck and keep us posted on your progress.

Good work. Is it a 25? The wheels look like 19 inch balloon tires which would be for a late 25 and 26 year.

Wow! It looks fantastic. I can only hope mine will look that good once the paint is on.

Hi Norm ! far as I know it`s a 24. I did a lot of research on this car and I believe it is a 24. someone added the later tires so I decided to use them to keep the cost down. I`ll post more pictures in the near future. thanks. Ken

Nice work Ken! When it comes to learning to drive, can I suggest you find a nearby experienced T driver to come over and give you some lessons. It would be sad to see you damage some of your nice work in the learning process. Mainly someone who can teach you how to be sympathetic to the operation of your bands and transmission, which may save you some rework later on. Be sure to post some pictures of the completed project!

Wow! Great transformation. Great work!

It does take a little getting used driving. Practice Practice Practice. I bought a T doodlebug and been having a blast learning on it driving up and down my road holding up traffic. I figured after having my pickup truck for ten years I better start learning to drive, the doodlebug is just an easy way for me to do it.

Ken: I only live about 2 miles from you. Any time you are ready for your driving lesson, give me a holler.
