I sold my 1919 Speedster today. I rescued it as a foundling in a field 37 years ago. It was last used as a tractor and wasn't running when I brought it back to our farm. Two years later I had built a body, found the necessary sheet metal and applied a fold out stage. For the next twenty years I used it as a mobile stage for a traveling medicine show. [ Google Mark Osterman Medicine Show and click images]

After I brought it with me to a Rochester I had an accident and wrecked it. I rebuilt it as a speedster and drove it regularly here in Rochester.

It's gone now ..... I'll miss driving it .... but it goes to a good home. I taught the new owner how to drive it ... and so it goes.

Mark,

Sorry to hear that.

But there is another happy T owner out there now

Ha... yes Ed ... that's my speedster a few years ago before I re-upholstered the seats with leather I got from a sofa I found on the curb. Also added a double spare tire carrier.

The good news is that a 1923 runabout will be coming my way next Saturday. I couldn't own both.
