I didn't know they were piston rings. I thought that was my motto in high school.... :-)

The only "Kant Score" cars I've seen are photos of the early Winfield Racers. I had no idea that they were piston rings!

You can't beat the Kant-Skore!

Very nice!

No goofy themes, like naming your car, no fluffy paint job, like an exploding easter egg,....

Just simple colors, simple ideals put into the car, and little details that look as if it did certainly come out of the mid 20s.
Well done! Kudos to you!

Ok Jason I have to admit my car does have a name on it on the other side of the hood.
"BUCK T Special". However in my defense, that was common for the day to be called ________ Special.
Like ford special, winfield special ..... So I get a pass there. hahaha
PS. I named the car in honor of my dad who ruined my life teaching me how to drive this blasted Model T car.

That's a real beauty Tyrone. I'll bet it sounds pretty healthy with that exhaust pipe. Wow, what is that about a 4" Pipe? Sounds like a lot of engineering and thought went into it, raising the hood-line a couple inches so it was more to scale with the driver. My problem is more with diameter than height. I always tell my wife people were smaller back then. She gets a good laugh when she watches me squeeze my big belly behind the wheel of my TT.

Mr. Burch. I first had the four 1" exhaust tubes open. My ears could not take the loudness. I put on the 4" collecter tube and though it would help take the loudness down toward the ground. It was still to noisy for me. I built a baffle and put it into the exhaust down pipe and that gave it a nice racer sound at a loudness I could stand. I understand the roundness issue. I also believe putting the baffle in made a difference in the power. Maybe running the open header was not creating the right amount of back pressure for the engine to run corretly.

Tyrone-

No, no,..I was referring to things like guys with "choppers" or "streetrods" where their cars have "names" like "killer", or "the rebel!"....

I think you'd addition, or more so, completion of the paint job adding your name as it is, was a good choice. A very good one that only adds to the car, really makes it,..all those old time details really always do!

Jason, yes I agree with you on the streetrod thought. I personally don't get into the streetrods/hotrods thing though I do admit I have seen so that are knock your socks car. Just not my thing. To each his own. What I do like outside the original model T's and Model A's are the rat rods. The cut up, stripped down, rusty old rods. I find then a good blend of the original early ford cars and a hot rod. I would expect them to have "rebel without a cause" "the body snatcher" something like that painted on or written on with chauk.
