After a long summer, and warm fall, back to work on the 24. The boy installing spark plug wires. He checked the Coupe a few times to make sure he was getting it right. Good job for a four year old. The 24 will be done shortly, except for the top, we have to wait for a hot sunny day for that.

Dan,

Looks like you are doing a great job of helping a boy on his early steps towards manhood. And there is a great chance you will see him driving his own Ts someday in the future.

Way to go!

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

I agree. My oldest was never REAL interested in the mechanic work, enough to maintain his vehicles, but never just for the enjoyment. My younger one, on the other hand, LOVES it. And while not REAL interested in the really old stuff, he thoroughly enjoys working on his Bronco and F-100 which are both older than him. He was just like the kid in this picture when he was that age and his stepson is just like that now.

5 years from now I bet he will be able to listen to a "T" and tell you what's wrong! :-) When I was his age dad gave me an old coo-coo clock and said I couldn't hurt it because it didn't work.. It still hangs in my living room but the bird comes out now and doesn’t make a sound..that clock is one of my favourite things and I suspect your model "T" will be one of his favourite things for life. Keep up the encouragement, :-)
