To everyone who makes this forum a great place to visit. Who doesn't love a Model T ?
My first car was a Model T, back when my crazy high-school friends and I could find enough rust out in the sage-brush to put one more or less together. I don't think I've ever quite had as much fun with any other kind of infernal gas-buggy since.
Reading here enables me to enjoy the Model T experience without getting my hands any dirtier than they already are !! Thanks again.
You are welcome. I, too started out gathering up pieces and putting them together. And for the present, at least, I am also an armchair T guy. I was on the forum from about '08-'11 and just recently came back.
Rich got me interest in T's and found me my first one. He taught me more than I have remembered. Here he is on one of our early excursions over the hills of Idaho. (mid-60s)

T-s are a lot of fun. And many of us have had times when we had one and times when we didn't. Times when we were looking for one. Or even times when we wanted to get rid of one -- who would want to do that? Well to make room for a different T or to fund the purchase of a different T. Or even to pay for the doctor's bill see Lee Crenshaw's entry on Friday, September 14, 2007 - 08:47 pm: at: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/29/35743.html and how a two-lever two-pedal T played an important part in his life. And some of us even part with one because we know the new steward will be able to take better care of something we treasure than we would be able to take care of it. See the last two entries at:

And some of us are saving money for a T or a garage or a garage for a T... and this forum gives us some great encouragement, ideas, and friends.

That is a great photo!
Those Firestone tires are the best looking tires. I only wish that Goodyear still made them. I had a set on my car in the early 70's and they were the best.
I hear you Larry. I bought those 4 tires in 1964. Here they are today. I also have the 4 Wards Riversides that Mr. Bingham bought about the same time and still holding air.
I do have better tires on the cars I take out of town.
