I ust want to make sure I'mnot missing out on any other good sources for info (or car sales ads). Are there any other model T forums worth frequenting?

I check the Early Ford and the HCCA forums every morning, but they don't get nearly the traffic that this forum does.

If you do facebook Model T Ford Club Of Facebook has a lot of interesting forums and items for sale.

Yes, the Facebook club is a good one.

I'm on the Facebook page. It is great. I enjoy the old photos, as I do here as well.

The Barn is OK with many posters from this site but as mentioned it's activity doesn't hold a candle to this one. The Facebook page is cool too but I was personally unimpressed. A lot of unfamiliar names there so you might get something new out of it. ( a lot of restomods). Don't know what the MTFCI site is like now as I haven't been there in months but again in the past it's activity level was almost nil. To paraphrase the saying on my last Pizza box: "You'll try the rest but stick with the best" which is here.

The MTFCI site no longer has a forum because of the lack of activity.

The lack of activity on the MTFCI forum was their own doing. You had to pay if you wanted to see the extra documentation pages and the menus and navigation blew a big vacuum. (Sucked) They tried to make it free and failed miserably leaving some pages requiring log-in and others not. It wasn't the place to go if you wanted info. It's no wonder it died a slow death.

The Model T Club of Facebook, being on FB, gets a lot of younger folks who are new to T's or aspire to get one. There are also experienced old timers who know their stuff, but they're a smaller percentage of the population there than here. For some of the technical questions I often post a link to this forum. There are a couple of other Model T groups on FB that are less active. Jim Starkey's prewar speedster group is VERY active, and some neat videos turn up there. He runs a very tight ship, and guys who try to post T-buckets and rat rods get the bum's rush.

I follow this forum for My Model T and Ford Barn for my Model A.
The Ford Barn Model T section is slow but the Model A section is very active.
When I got my A they were able to tell me within a few months when the body was manufactured - even though the motor had been changed, gave me pages of info that helped me thru a motor problem, and have been encouraging as I have been struggling thru a few other issues. .

I also frequent SigTalk for good political discussions and my info about other hobby.

What about the publication? Vintage Ford vs Model T Times?

I've never looked at the Facebook Model T site until today. It seemed pretty good. I look at the Hudson forum and Old IHC.com forum. They are good but slow, you need to ask questions way ahead of time. Here if you have a question you can get an answer in a few minutes, I guess because there are lots of Model T's. I see Model T's occasionally. The only Hudson I've ever seen on the roads around here is the dashboard of mine while I'm driving and you can't just flip through a catalog and order practically any part for it brand new.

Based on this thread, I joined the Facebook Model T site, but so far all I see is a stream of cars for sale, is that all it is?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Rick Cicciarelli on Tuesday, January 24, 2017 - 08:53 pm:

Mainly, from what I've seen...the Facebook page is about half-and-half cars for sale and old photos. I follow it for both reasons.

The MTFC of FB also gets questions on technical issues, with similar long discussions on what kind of oil, how many volts, etc. There are guys who know their stuff, but not as many as here.

Being new to Model T's, I've spent time here and on the FB group.

Of the two, this is certainly the better place to learn.

Between the two however, I get my daily fix on T's....until I get to bring my Touring home in a couple weeks.

I have avoided Facebook for years. I have other things to do than social media. I only recently joined to see a few things that are only available there. As a rookie, I can barely navigate it. I find that trying to view the model T Facebook club subjects you to more annoying ads than interesting content. I suppose there may be a way around them the FB people know about. I prefer this forum.

I like Jim Starkeys speedster site if your into speedsters. He moderates this site.

Easy to post pictures on the Facebook site. I like it and this site.
