I appreciate all the folks offering parts and forum advice. Not many options here in rural Oregon to find contacts. If anyone lives close to Gold Beach and needs a common T part,or just some T talk, get I touch. Hope you all had a good Thanksgiving. John Wilson
My brother past a few years back in your town, Once took a jet boat trip up the river as far as you could go--- cool town! If you get up the coast to the Columbia river you are in my area.
take care, Paul
Just spent a week at Cape Disappointment watching winter storms. Beautiful area.
There used to be someone in Brookings who had a T. I bought a split rim spreader from him, but that was about 20 years ago. Another man in Grants pass had a barn full of parts and a field of body parts all overgrown with blackberries. Again about 20 years ago. My parents moved to Brookings after their retirement, so I went there often and while on my travels looked for T parts and tools. However that was in the 1990's and I seldom go through there anymore.
Larry Ciufo lives at Depot Bay, a little far north of you. He has an antique shop and a coffee bar in the same building and a Model T garage behind it. All on Highway 101.
Neat to get your responses so quick, a real indicator as to what a great site this is. I grew up in Santa Cruz Ca and drove my 23 pie wagon to high school, in the60s. It was loved by all the girls. Wish I was as lucky. I do remember Tom Elliot and the NW vintage speedster club at the Portland Swap meet,that was awhile back. Thanks guys
Norm, The guy in grants pass was Ray Green. He passed three or four years ago and all the car stuff is gone
John, I was trucking out in Oregon back in the eighties went to the coast and saw some beautiful huge kites fling high along the beaches, bet they have even bigger ones now.
It looks as if you should form a Model T club.
If you are the only member you could claim that your have frequent meetings and get 100% participation!
