I've had my 1923 Fordor for a little over a month and didn't know anything about the vehicle when I purchased it. I started out by joining the Tin Lizzies here in Arkansas and the help I've received since has been overwhelming. Mike Walker is doing a rebuild on the running gear and engine and I'm with him off an on to learn. The dedication to preserving the model T History by Mike Walker, Bill and Nelly Howe, Mike Bender and Donnie Brown has surprised me. Their advice, instruction and loan of tools has helped to get me started and kept me on the right track. Thank you all.

Mike walker will do a good job on your T. I rode in one of his cars, and it was smooth, quiet, and strong (for a Model T :-)). You're in good hands all around.

Curtis, this is a good time to get all the "little things" looked at before the spring tour season starts. Probably seems like forever to get your car back, but as far as I know Mike has never lost one yet. :-) :-) Hope to see you on a tour soon....

Curtis was here helping and learning for a couple of weeks. During that time we rebuilt the Ruckstell rear end and began installing his new disc brakes from Birdhaven. Last Sunday we finished rebuilding the engine/trans, and on Monday we installed them into his car. Tuesday was spent installing the crankcase ear blocks and bolts, re-installing the steering column and related parts, and connecting the wishbone to the crankcase. Curtis didn't mind being the guy under the car for those two-man parts of the rebuild, and he was a great help. And I think he learned a lot in the process. He returned home on Wednesday, and I finally got a few days off! :-) I'll get back on the job tomorrow.
