I think I just threw up a little:
Wow. Ordinarily rigs like this one have at least a steering wheel that resembles a T steering wheel. There's not a thing on it that even looks T.
A car that original should be donated to the Henry Ford Museum so everyone can enjoy what a 1914 8 passenger taxi looked like.
You may scoff at how ridiculous it is, but "parts are easy to get".
Too bad Henry Ford is not with us. After walking around it a couple of times, he would know what to do.
The wood is original 1914 maple.
The little spinney thing fell from the a tree in September of 1913 but didn't begin to grow into a tree until 1914.
Someone might argue that it is really a 1913 because it had all of it's DNA in when it fell from the tree and others will insist that it didn't become a tree until a root was visible.
Don't make fun of the poor original maple -
you need to remember that Maple Trees Matter!
As a Canadian, I'm embarrassed to know that a fellow Canadian, would go to such length to sell a vehicle.
My Interpretation Not T
It doesn't look to me like there are ANY visible Model T parts on this creation, so how did it get titled as one???
These are the things that make it more difficult for us authentic folks to get titles on undocumented cars.
Ummm...I think the sidelights might be Model T...everything else is highly questionable, as is this guys gullibility if he really thinks he's got or that he can foist that thing off as a Model T. Maybe he started off with an original car and ended up with this, either way he's delusional.
"If you don't like being looked at this is not for you" Should read "If you don't like being laughed at this is not for you"
I actually lived in Sault Ste. Marie for seven years, went to a lot of car shows and cruise nights, and never saw this thing once.
The owner must not have liked being looked at.
Man. I felt bad with the Ruxtell under my 1911. Till I drove it.
I love camping at the Soo on the river and watching the boats go by!! Is the Antlers still open?? Bud.
Never argue with your motor vehicle department, regardless of what they call it in your state. Most of them are too stupid to discuss anything rationally (even intelligent people can be indoctrinated into the "bureaucratic way"). In some places, they will refuse to license a model T unless it is black. Even a properly restored '26/'27 or '09 to'12. I have actually spoken with people that had this problem in Pennsylvania and Massachusetts. In other places, even the worst hotrods often get licensed as actual antiques. From shows I have been too? There must be hundreds of nothing antique hotrods in Califunny driving around on Horseless Carriage plates.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
It doesn't even look like a Model T.
I once witnessed a guy eat his own stool. There is a direct parallel here.
Truly a real "hack"
