I received a note from Bernie asking me to post the following photo of his “new” TT. He will probably welcome photos and advice on rewooding the top etc.



I’ll try to lighten up the photo a little bit later, but I need to do that on the old computer. And first I need to mow the leaves while it is still daylight.

Congratulations Bernie on your new TT. Feel free to add any comments or questions you want to share with the group.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off for Bernie

Bernie,

It's the addiction talking. Seek out help before you can no longer reach out !

Freighter Jim,

I agree it is a beautiful sunset. But I was hoping I could change the contrast and see additional details on the car. It helped just a little but not enough to make it worthwhile.

Bernie,

I you took any photos from the other side, the beautiful sunset won't show but details of the truck may have shown up better. And even better will be to take some photos when you have noon time light etc.

Note some of the normal open T parts will fit your your truck. The 1924-25 touring and roadster top piece of the cowl should be the same (NOT the low cowl 1915-1923 but the high cowl 1924-25). Also the front fenders (ok slight change in the location of the bead but they fit fine). The lower windshield frame is listed as the same for the 1923-1925 open cars and the 1924-1926 C-cabs.

The upper windshield frame on the C-cab is a little taller than the touring/runabout. From memory (not as good as the Price List of Parts - but I didn't see it there) I think the windshield stations are also a little taller on the TT than on the 1923-25 open cars, but I'll let someone who knows confirm or correct that one.

Again, congratulations on your new Ford!

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

that sunset is darn near arctic ! Bernie is up in the northern saskatchewan town of glaslyn, "at the edge of the bush" he says, and he has by far the largest collection of model T's in town !

Burger, I need you to stop posting photos of your TT, because I'm starting to develop a fetish (a course of action to which one has an excessive and irrational commitment), so nobody gets the wrong idea, for Model TT trucks.

Happy motoring,

Warren

Warren,

Joining the ranks of the Model TT Snob Society is a rigorous test of
character, much like Marine Corps boot camp. Think you can hack it ?

The few, the proud .... :-)

Lightening the photo loses the sunset, but it does show slightly more detail.
