Brasscarguy....

I will bring a good front cylinder (Fits 1 & 2 Cyl REO's) that came off a 1 cylinder REO truck engine. It is in good shape....no cracks or welds and will work on 1 cyl REO cars. Asking $850.00
When I was on last years tour in Bellingham Wash. there was someone that was interested that had a REO truck.

Going to Noriega's Thursday after the tour. For the swap meet we are bringing several thousand pounds of T's and parts. Have an early pan and hand brake lever/shaft, aluminum 15 trains cover and much more. For the speedster guys, a Rajo head, Whippet radiator and a few other goodies. Anyone need a Franklin lion hood mascot? One of those too, plus some 26-28 Buick stuff. I am driving my 1916 Dodge on the tour. My partner will be driving a 1915 T speedster that will be for sale at the meet, real reasonable.
Hope to meet some of you guys there.

Thinking about it. Checked the airlines, pretty expensive. Can't haul crap home. Takes two days to fly, four to drive. Haul lots of crap home. Or sell some crap. Or stop in Vegas. Too much work to do at home. Like to see some of that stuff Kim is bringing. Got too much crap already. Need to pay taxes instead of buying parts. Might find a couple cheap OF's or something I could make money on. Got a good pickup. Long drive by myself. Oh, me, oh, my, what to do, what to do. Still a couple weeks away.

David, we have legal gambling in Montana and I would bet I haven't put $100 in to it in the 35 or so years they have had it here. I work too hard for it to give it away and they know a lot more about those games than I do.

Being self employed is gamble enough for me.

My dad was raised in Nevada. He always said that those big-shots didn't build those fancy palaces out of the goodness of their hearts.

Don't know if I will make it to Bakersfield this year or not. Wife keeps saying "GO" and wants to go along, but other things really aren't shaping up well for it. We will see.

Everybody else, Go! Drive carefully, and enjoy it all! Then post pictures of all the cars and about half the parts.

I'm looking for an original Prest - O - Lite "Automatic Reducing Valve" as shown in this thread - scroll down about half way down. http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/506218/568517.html?1442789099.

I'm also looking for a dome light switch for a Fordor Sedan.

I hope to meet many of you while there.

Stan,
I just had to use the pun! :-) My brother tried to teach me craps once--"Roll the dice, David, OK, you got 5, now roll them again--oops, you loose. OK roll the dice, you got 7, OK roll them again--ooops, you lose!"
"Louie, what are the rules??"
"Just keep playing, you'll learn them!"
"I already leaned one: I lose!!"
That's as far as it went!
I explain to people that the advantage of being self-employed is that I can work a half-day if I want to, and can choose which 12 hours it will be!
There is one sure-fire way to make a small fortune being self-employed; you start with a Large fortune. . . . :-)

Since it was asked "Who is bringing what to Bakersfield?" I will contribute my collection. All of this stuff is virgin...never seen the eyes or hands of swap meets. Trying to get it sorted so that it can be seen.

It'll really help if you wear your MTFCA cap or better yet a FORUM Name Tag so we all don't walk by each other. I know I've done that in years past just because we don't recognize the face but only the name.

Our T parts trailer is so heavy this year we had to back it into the shop last night to pull out the single axle and swap in a set of tandems. Still worried about the tires, may buy some heavier ones. I think the trailer weighs in at 8-10K lbs. We hope to go home a lot lighter, so we will be making great deals. Not rare high buck stuff, but parts everyone needs to build up a model T. Buy the whole load with the trailer and you will be in business cheap. Of course, we will will have some high end goodies, too. Also an entry level priced brass speedster for low buck fun. Come by and see us!

Don, we are in D81/82, and E31/32. We have always had four spaces but we finally arranged to have them all together in one block.
Les, hard to come up with something neater than that Plymouth roadster. But Bakersfield is where you will find it. See you there.

Which one does he need? At least five USA production variations from '14 through '25, and that is major variations. There are also lesser variations. I think three different ones for '26/'27?

Make it as early as you can on Saturday. I always stay until noon, but some vendors seem to have to leave on Friday afternoon. Unfortunately I don't sell old T parts (but if you want a leather license plate, I'm in D-22).

Well, for me Bakersfield is all over--ain't gonna make it this year, and we were so looking forward to visiting y'all and meeting some of you for the first time. Don't really have much on our "must have list" that won't likely be at Auburn (CA) in a few months, and I haven't organize my "surplus" stuff (like '15 Stanley engine, 20s Buick wheels, etc.) to take them. OH well, there should be next year. And the weather appears to be great this year.
SOMEONE have some Tongue Stew at Wool Growers and think of us. Oh, and Ice Cream at Dewar's. Man, are we missing out this year!! AAAUGh!!
Y'all have a great time, we'll be thinking of you and wishing we were there.
