I wonder how much they spent to make that monstrosity out of a perfectly good piece?

Probably on Ebay because they couldn't break even renting it out for weddings, bachelor parties and high school proms.

Losers.

No loser there, just a great car guy that managed to create this with his wife at 87 :-)

I would enjoy having this car. Would sure generate a lot of interest.

I love it too! But won't bid on it because I already have too many Ts. Envision that front top bow. Wonder what it'd look like with the top down?

Hello Roger. Thanks for the info. I give this 87 year old [and his wife] alot of credit. To build this out of a pile of parts. More power to him. Would love to see their next project.

Thanks for the article, Roger.

Well God bless 'em for being well enough and wealthy enough at their age to engage in this kind of "creativity" but seriously, the best thing that can be said about building this aberration is that they didn't cut up an intact car to do it.

Really interesting....back in the day what was the stretch T called? A Toady? Wasn't Fast Frank going to build one?

The only thing I can criticize it for is the amount of space it would take up in the garage.

I like it!

(3) Model T's were used in the making of the Muenster Hot Rod ....

People can do with their property whatever they want but this is exactly like putting tractor tires on a pickup truck and driving it over parked cars.

What is that all about?

It's about having fun rather than going through life pissed off that nobody else is enjoying YOUR hobby correctly.

Fewer doors but almost as long.

I have to admit, I was relieved to find out he didn't cut up an existing car to do it and I bet I wasn't the only one.

But maybe I got Mr. Ellis all wrong. Perhaps he's a brilliant and subversive Canadian artist making a statement about American excess. It certainly got a visceral and emotional reaction from me but then good art is supposed to be controversial.

The Model T Ford as radical, functional sculpture: fitting.

It's a nice job and I like it also. I wonder if he's just selling it for garage space/move on to the next project.

Yes Mark ...

Those who wished to buy it ...

Resisted ...

And so it was ....

Relisted !

That is strange. It had a winning bid on it and no reserve. Did he pull it at the last minute because he did not like the bidding?
