....on the AMC channel beginning Saturday 8 April at 8:00 pm CST. It's called 'The Son' and this series of 8 shows is supposed to take place in Texas from 1900-1915. The star is that favorite son of Texas, Pearce Brosnan. Yeah, go figure. But there'll be several shots of my '14 Ford runabout and a few of my red '10 Maxwell and blue '11 Hupp. Unfortunately the Star Car is a TT chassis with a garishly silly wood cab. And the T engine was removed and a rather large 3 phase electric motor installed so the actors could be heard. And you'll even see a real nice '24 fordor along with a '22 center door in this 1900--15 show. But the pay was good. The $400 @ day per car enabled me to have a KC Warford installed in the '26 roadster and a SCAT crank installed -both by Ross Lilleker- in the '14 runabout. But watch the series and buy from the commercials so they'll make an updated series.... the '26 tudor, roadster and '29 open pickup needs the work !!

I saw the previews for it- looks interesting, but couldn't they have used a REAL Texan for the lead?

Seriously, was Gary Busey really too busy?

To the George in Missourah: I enjoyed the visit with you and Steve at Chickasha. No ....I didn't get my mug into the movie Early on I was skeptible about the production so I told the Picture Car Coordinator that I would drive or move my cars around when needed. He said OK. Fine. Go to wardrobe. I did and was fitted with a 3 piece wool suit for my $175 @ day extra/driver role. Did that for ONE 18 hour summer day on a Texas ranch when the temp hit 103 degrees.. Told the PCC that his teamsters and other local T drivers can have the cars after that...

I came in the middle of the movie and it's boring as hell! Haven't seen any T's yet and I don't think I'll make it to see them!

Willis

Nope, didn't make it......

Alan,

In case you missed it, most people think T's date to the Civil War and
we are occasionally asked if we are the original owners. Most people
are:

a. clueless about history

b. just plain stupid

c. in a hurry to the Quickie Mart for some beer and cigs

d. apathetic and ignorant, or

e. all of the above

I watched the show last night. TOOOOO Many commercials and I noticed the several post 1915 Model Ts as well as the weird looking, time traveling TT.

Wish my cars could be in a movie accurate or not.

Well, a close second, after that horrid display of cranking technique, I was amazed that that old truck had so much juice in its apparently non-existent battery that you could shine its oddly placed headlights on an opening near the creek long enough to converse with, fight, kill and bury a person all under their way-too-bright glare!

When I'm killing people in a place familiar to me on a moonlit night, I don't need no steenkin' lights!

And speaking of unnecessary illumination, who knew Amerindian camps (Comanche?, Carrizo?, Karankawa?) kept such huge, wasteful, attention attracting fires blazing all night?
