Neat, but not $500 neat.

I agree. Too rich for me. But there are people who can not make anything themselves, that shell out the big bucks for stuff like this. Someone in a New York City loft would just love something like this, and what is 500 dollars to someone who probably pays 3000.00 a month for rent .. :-)

$3000/month in NYC is the slum district. :-)

Yeah, for $500 I would expect the rest of the engine too. At least he used period correct hardware and old wood.

My problem is I can't dream up neat stuff like this, either to just have myself or make some spending cash out of. Oh well. Nice to look at but that $500 will buy half the white tires/tubes that I need for Pete! :-)

It is a made in Canada front cover. Are those hard to find. A lot of thought went into making that. The slotted screws and the twisted cord help make it look authentic. I am pleased the filler cap is Model 'A' not 'T'. It is charming. Perhaps someone could re-purpose this artisan to restoring cars.

i have considered using a couple bad crankshafts to make a lamp post or attach something on the journals to set potted plants on but have never done it.

I note one of the ebay items mentioned was an entire town called Bridgeville CA.
Hardly a name worth paying for in my book.
Now if it was name something like Ritzville WA then I could be interested...

Plus they have a good old car club there as well.

A great piece my grandfather has which is incredibly useful: the shell for a standard 25-27 Model T rear end. He had a friend weld some "U" shaped pieces onto the wheel side ends. Makes fantastic jack stands for keeping the car lifted off the ground during winter.

Jay,

I too love that bench and would give my wife for one. I think the Model T museum should have one like that for the visitors to sit on.
