This morning brought a surprise break in the clouds, so I took the roadster out for a picture in full sunlight.
I also took advantage of the brief break in the weather for a test drive around the block (two miles) to try out the new Stutzman wheels. I was pleased to find that at cruising speed (35 mph) the car didn't wander all over the road. Looks like I'm ready for some real driving now.
Can I go for a ride tomorrow afternoon ?
Maybe there is a place we can have dinner at ....
You bet. That's weather dependent, of course. I don't have the top fixed yet.
Tires are a little to white Steve. Need some road grime to tone them down a bit. Have fun and get tham dirty.
Drive safe and often
Wonderful photo Steve. I took the liberty of saving a copy to my Model T album. Thank you!
Don't worry Dallas..between his gravel roads and you know what.....
What a neat old car! Did you buy it new?
Steve, nice pic, but who's that old coot who is spoiling the nice view??
PS Definitely a keeper!
Steve, I would love to see your place sometime. It intrigues me.
Sure thing, Marty. Any time you're down this way give me a call and you can have a guided tour of the junk pile.
Gil, I probably could have. I think it was put together about forty years ago.
Pardon me Roy,Is that the cat that had the new shoes?? It looks nice Steve!! Bud.
Great photo and it shouldn't be long before the weather is great for driving - even with the top down.
Hap l9l5 cut off
Great photo Steve
Steve- you are the man! Looking sharp and the flivver even sharper! Love dem white tires...super spiffy! You'll have to fight off the ladies now.
Steves place is built of fossil rich stone, it's amazing.
Hey Steve- with the concerns about white tires turning brown, possibly because of Vietnamese made tubes- I wanted to ask where you purchased your tubes from?
Great photo, Steve !
Freighter Jim: You don't know what you are letting yourself in for when you mention eating. when I stopped by there in 2012 I took him to lunch, and the had to close the place we ate at as there was no food left! Ask Steve how well they fed him, and I think maybe he has stock in the place or a stock option. Just warning you, don't say I did not warn you.
Steve go easy on Jim, as he needs money for fuel and expenses.
Just kidding Steve!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gilbert : He was at the Factory when it came off the the assembly line, in fact he may have driven it out the door!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I got the tubes from Universal. I can't look at them now to be sure, but I think they're European. These tyres are NOS New Zealanders, so I expect "the brown thing" will not be a problem.
Steve you have a very beautiful home and as always your pictures are wonderful thanks for sharing.
Steve, Thanks!!!! I don't make it over that way very often, but maybe if I go to Chikasha next year, it would be a stop.
That ol' runabout do look good with those whitey-tighties! Pun not intended but if it makes it funny by chance... ;-)
I wanted to type "That ol' Go-Devil" but I'd get told.
Yikes! 35 miles per hour?!
Great pic Steve!
