A friend had an interesting observation. He said when asking a T guy how many cars he has, you say "How many are you down to?"
If someone brags how many Ts he owns, ask "How many are running?" Both appropriate questions I thought.
I love that second one. Made me LOL.
My counts are still going up. Two running. One ready to start and drive for the first time. One I am frantically trying to restore and get running (the '15 runabout), plus three separate project parts piles (two more speedsters and a '12 MILR).
I am a sick man.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Because I have a Model A Briggs Town Sedan, and five Model T's, my answer to question #2,......How many are running?......is usually,......"it varies".
Actually, I am actively trying to change the answer to question #1,.....How many Model T's are you down to? I have one Model T for sale right now, but even despite an ad in the MTFCA "classified" (I think it's just listed "1923 Touring") and ads in a couple newspapers, I have only received one "inquiry"! I suppose with winter weather and the holidays approaching, this is probably not the best time to try to sell a Model T, right?
I have 2, both running, and enough parts to build between 3 and 5 more cars.
I have a '26 Touring that's a great driver, and a '26 Tudor "project car" (that is doing a great job keeping me both busy and broke). Space finances keep me from acquiring any more. If I do get the itch for another "T", one of the others will have to go.
I used to say you need a minimum of 3 Model T's. One to drive, one to work on and one for spare parts. Now I don't know? All 3 are running! I guess I need a larger garage!
