All the pickups were hooked up to trailers at the Early Ford Registry Tour in Paynesville, MN, so we had to resort to an old car for a pull start....
Did you get it going?
What was the matter?
Was the switch on?
Where is Royce when you need him? Glad to see your on the right end of the rope!!!Bud.
Ken, I wouldnt slam a door that hard. To funny, Scott
Just a joke.
There were a few issues, but the primary issue was the fuel valve was shut off. Once that was corrected the Columbia sprang to life.
Hey, Rob -- You should install a trailer hitch on your K so you'll have a convenient place to hook a tow rope to help out those "lesser" cars.
Faster than a speeding bullet!
More powerful than a locomotive!
Good to read a post from you, Rob. Was wondering what you are up to now.
Thanks guys. As Tim mentioned, fuel off was a decided problem...
You may notice the Columbia has been re-badged with a Ford brass script. We told the owner we will have a ceremony one of these evenings and take the Ford script off, bend it and give it back to the owner..... (a la the T.V. Show "Branded").
Of course we won't.... all good fun and no cars down yet on the tour. We have two Model S, two Model K, one Model A and one Model N, along with our "Folumbia (Columbia with Ford script)."
Those other cars surely look tiny sandwiched between the two K's.
Were can you see these cars touring? I live in central MN and would love to look them over.
Rob, The Columbia owner looked like Wade Smith from San Antonio. Was it ? And did he just have the gas turned off?
I thought I was the only one that remembered the TV show "Branded"! Along with "Whirlybirds", "Sea Hunt", "Casey Jones" and a couple dozen others that are almost never mentioned anywhere.
Everyone (over 50) remembers George Reeves
Rob, Glad to see you out and about with that beautiful K!
Thanks for posting the video. Looks like you are having a great time.
If you have a chance, please take a photo of the tag on the windshield of the blue Model K Touring. I would like to know if it says "Troy" on it somewhere as Troy supplied both wooden and metal windshields for the early Model Ts. Erik posted the photo below (thank you Erik).
Have fun, wish I could be there with you!

Matt L, you are so close!
Last year, this model T rabble-rouser drove down to Paynesville on the Saturday (I think) just to see what's-what.
I was surely impressed! In a good way. :-) Wowee!
Check the early ford registry site.
A group of nice people there when I went.
I got very lucky with a nice fellow from a couple states south of us.
VERY lucky and a once in a lifetime!
I had a wonderful time! A very early little Ford tried to run me over in the parking lot that morning! Pretty cool.
I worked this last weekend... :-) Else I would've bothered those folks!
