Rusty Berg and I are heading back to Detroit after spending time at Joe's place where he not only let us use his engine pan jig, but took time to keep us from making them more of a pretzel than they already were. Thank you Joe for helping and teaching us younger fellas the art of fixing T's.

Aaron

Joe is a great T guy and friend.

I would like to chime in and thank Joe as well. I had brought a 3 dip pan to straighten and Aaron and I thought it would be the easiest of the bunch to do, since the rest were 4 dip pans. Needless to say, it was the most "pretzel-fied" and we both were scratching our heads. Joe stepped in to help and showed us "yutes" the benefits of proper application of heat, and sure enough the pan is now good to go. It was a great experience meeting and learning from Joe!

Ditto to what all you guys said! And I'm lucky, Joe's only 30 miles from me, so in 35 minutes I'm at his place. Finally got a chance to drive "Pete" my '12 Comm. Roadster P/U that he rebuilt the engine of, runs like scat. Out for another longer drive tomorrow, gotta get it broke in before the cold weather hits!

Joe is great!!! He rebuilt my 1925 Gray (not Dort) engine for me and did a great job. Glad he's only a couple of hours from me.

Joe's done three engines for me and has helped find countless parts for my cars. If he don't have it, he know's someone who does! The only guy I'd trust with my T engine is Engine Joe!

Rusty/Aaron,
You should have stopped by on your way through!
I'm only a couple miles off I75 and US23 near the OH/MI border.

Chuck

Just mailed my ballot to nominate Joe Bell for the Walter Rosenthal Award because of the model T knowledge he is willing to share with anyone that asks him. Also I have found him to be easy to talk model T talk with.
