Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Sunday drive

Worked the last two weekends cleaning and rearranging garage and other buildings because these darn T's are multiplying. I finished about two this afternoon. Have a place for my lovely wife to park inside this winter and I have room to pull the rear end out of RPU for rebuild. Happy wife happy life.
I needed fuel for small engines and the RPU needed gas so we hopped in the T and headed for town with four gas cans in the bed. Had a bite at MD's , filled cans and headed home. About a twenty mile round trip on a 70 degree October day with a stiff breeze. Man that's living .

We pile more miles on our T's in Sept. and Oct. than all of summer months combined. Just did about a 70+ mile tour today in our '13, with friend in tow in their '15. Dang odometer stuck probably about 20 miles into the trip before I got it working again. Had close to 60 miles on the trip meter then when we got home. Great day. Great couple of weeks for that matter.

On it happened ! Unbelievable how big of a mess one can make in a garage on one little project . My son got married and has his own garage . I can't even blame him for the mess now.
Tim , sounds like a great day. My buddy has his motor out so we go alone but it's still great .

I was always wondering about Indiana. I know that everything in Australia is upside down, and that in Alaska there is only one day. Sunny all around the clock or dark all around the clock, but I didn't know that everything in Indiana is sideways! Always learning something!

Great pics Dallas! Love your pickup and what a day for a cruise!
Do I see lower glass in the windshield? You found a good frame? :-)
Nice car too! It looks like it's doin' 60 just sittin' in the garage!

Duey
I did find a perfect original lower windshield. I am not sure but I think I may have a 25 upper as the 26 roadster that just moved in with me fits better and the upper and lower is almost the same size for width . The gap between upper and lower in RPU is about 1/2 inch and upper is a little narrower . Haven't had time for measurements . Hard to measure when I'm driving.
Drive safe and often

Sunday again and a nice day. I took my friend's mom some pecans. Good reason to get out plus she'll make me a pie.

Great reason for a drive, like we need one . Took RPU to feed mill yesterday as it was 70 degrees . Pretty rare in northern Indiana this time of year. Hoping to take it to fire station tomorrow night for meeting. How about a pick of whole car ? Would love to see it.
Drive safe and often

Ok. As you can tell I'm not finished yet but compare it to my profile picture and you can see it's come a long way.

Corey it looks like a great ride. As you can see mine has a couple minor flaws. I drive it whenever I can . I put 20 miles yesterday. Running errands .

Dallas, yours looks more useful. I can only haul one passenger and a sack or 2 of groceries. It's fun though.

No problem hauling pecans ? Won't have a problem hauling pie! Sounds pretty usefull . I checked out your profile pic and you have been busy.
