It's pretty sad when you miss driving your T so much that you go out to check on her although its only been a few weeks since its been winterized, this is truly a sickness with no cure in sight. :-)

Not to steal your thunder John, but I actually do that too virtually everyday. Luckily, I keep two T's in the house garage, so I see (and TALK) to them several times a day, the other two and the A are banished to the pole barn. I give them a hearty greeting every time I go out to the barn. They haven't responded back yet. I think they're pissed. :-)

I am sick as well I assume, went out and checked the antifreeze in my model A s that I know are good to below -40 colder than it gets here. I didn't check the 27 but I did it last Saturday. I still had to check on them yesterday while it was 11 with windchills. It just proves how much we all care about preserving these treasures for the future. Tim

Beautiful, peaceful scene, John.

Until I was ten, we lived in Barrington, IL, and had plenty of snow, which I loved.

When we moved (back)to Memphis, I brought a love of the winter, and a Midwestern accent, which I still have. Every so often, a customer will ask, "Bill, where are you from?", and I'll answer, "Memphis." The customer will THEN ask, "How 'bout BEFORE Memphis?"

One of my favorite music videos on YouTube is "Nights In White Satin, Tribute To Winter.", which I sometimes play when on the forum.

Ah, if Memphis could have more winter, more snow, it would be SO nice!

One good thing of living in the Wacko Socialist State of Califunny is being able to drive our T's year round at least until the powers that be here screw that up to.

No cure.
May I type this?

Opening the doors on the little shed, those eyes look directly at me.
Watching me.
Waiting in the semi dark. Those eyes are always bright.
Sometimes I look just to see those eyes, sometimes I have other business in the shed but I still know itís watching me.
When it sat outdoors for the last 20 years, Iíd catch it watching me, questioning me, what it asked, not always sure.
But it was always asking, and watching me.
When I would tow it on the trailer at night, The tail lamps of my old pickup truck lit those eyes up almost brightly. Watching me, in the mirror.
Always watching me.
That warms me.


The parts that make up this model T havenít been inside for 50 years or more.
Iím not sure if its happier being inside. I feel better.

Drove my 29 model A roadster P/U around town (Fallbrook, Ca.) today. Weather was warm and sunny....hopefully we will get some rain by Sunday. Weather is one of the few good things living here in the land of fruits & Nuts.
