Hello All,

We've enjoyed a beautiful warm weather Sunday here today in eastern New Mexico. 61 degrees for a high. A perfect day to enjoy the cars.

Pictured are the family's two Ford convertibles, our '21 "T" roadster and my son's '98 mustang.

I hope you notice the 21 is a little shinier than in previous photos. I've rubbed and rubbed, polished and polished the paint until I had blisters on my hands. I believe this is about as shiny as she's going to get. I like it! I hope that you approve.

I don't quite know how to upload multiple photos. Here's a few more.

Couple of good looking Fords! I like the black one better though.

Orlando, I love your paint. It's funny how big the model T looks next to the Mustang. Do you have vacuum wipers on your T?

Thanks for the comments.

Royce and David,

I like the black one better too.

Kirk,

Please let me know of any activities or events in your area. I'd like to meet some local T'ers.

Chris,

The wiper is electric. It came with the car, along with everything else.
I'm going to make an attempt to upload multiple photos.

It looks as though the manufacturer of the wiper is:

Electric Cleaners Laboratories Inc.
Brooklyn, NY, USA

The "poor but honest" look is always the best. Of course I'm talking about the black one. The white one just reeks of success and accomplishment.

Has anything been done to the top to clear the wiper mounting? I had trouble with just this much:

My top has a cut, notch in the area to accomodate the wiper mechanism.

That wiper looks like it is made by the same company that makes OOOGA horns. EA laboratories.
Very nice cars especially the black one!
It appears to be well appointed with the electric wiper,dash light,speedometer, and bumper.
