You all have seen a shiners mini model T, I am told that once upon a time they shortened an actual T which let them do wheelies.
There is a fellow who wants to buy such a modified T. Where would you go to try and find one? What words or phrases would you use to search? Has there been an article on how to do it?

Please don't do that to a T. Do a Pinto, no loss.
Tommy,If I was a lot younger with a lot of time, I would love to do that with all the spare T parts laying all over the country side.
The car in the 3rd picture looks to have a Model A rear axle. Bud.
Ben -- One of my Model T buddies here bought a few truckloads of T stuff from a guy who was selling out all of his. There was a "bucking" Shriner's T (or parts of one) in the lot. I think he has disassembled it but he has no desire to have one of those cars, so he'd likely sell you whatever he has which would be useful in building one. I know the shortened driveline was part of it. Shoot me an email if you want me to follow up on this. email@example.com
The video from the link above is impressive!
Evidently Walt Disney had one! I can't imagine it was from a 1908 T as the video details states...
Wow, watching the video, that would really rob the mains of oil, any ideas to address that, other than use an already worn out engine?
Now that was fun!
I 'spose a pump, ya?
there is a "clown car" that
'does all the tricks" listed in hemmings for 4500. it is located in Brockport NY might be worth a call.....
