The Dairyland Tin Lizzies will be hosting our 16th annual "Tin Lizzie University" on Saturday, January 20,2018.
This year, a morning swap meet followed by lunch will make this an all day event of winter Model T fun.
All Model T enthusiasts are welcome.
On the flyer above for the Dairyland Tin Lizzies Model T University, two items can be added:
Kevin Bruso will be the lead presenter for the "Oil Leaks at the Fourth Main"
Also, add Mike Zahorik presenting on "How to Use a Growler".
This should be a fun event! See you there,
I will be coming.
It should be a good time.
Jim, I'm hosting so I guess I gotta be there. It's always a good time. Hoping the swap meet idea takes off. If anyone has any questions feel free to post. We'll see you on the 20th,
For anyone that is planning on coming to this event, I will not be setting up in the swap meet, but, if there is something special that you need to complete a project, I may have it. Such as touring top bows, wheels, lamps, horns, tire carriers, windshield frames, etc.
I do not want to ship it, but I could bring it to this meet. Send me a PM.Do not post your inquiries here.
Update No. 1: Tod Wirth will be the lead presenter for the "Oil leaks at the fourth main".
See you there,
Sounds like good times. Just a long ways to go from Ga..lol
Billy, what are you planning for lunch?
I'm planning on seasoned hamburgers/cheeseburgers from kewaskum frozen foods, homemade french fries and some sort of dessert. Sounds like a bit of a warm up for next weekend, should make grilling a little easier,
Weather permitting in Wisconsin, a Hi Speed TT rear end, 1920's Kohler Generator set, brass bulb horn, and related T & TT parts will be available.
The weather for this event on January 20th is forecast to be in the low 40's and partly cloudy...
See you there...
It's getting close, and the weather for Saturday is still looking good.
Iíll be there with 1 table full of parts; a very small selection of new parts and also some used items. Let me know by 6pm Friday if there are any specific new parts you would like me to bring. I keep most all of the engine, transmission, mechanical, chassis, steering, electrical, fuel, & cooling parts on hand (about 900 part numbers).
Tin Lizzie University was a great cure for cabin fever today. The weather was unbelievable for Wisconsin in January, sunny and almost 50 degrees!
A half-dozen tables of Model T parts and tools were for sale. I took home more than I brought for sale, which is my definition of a good swap meet.
Billy and Sandy prepared a great lunch. Thank you for your efforts!
The three Model T repair topics were informational and very well done. Our guest presenter Dave DeYoung shared much valuable information for making the Model T headlights function the way they should. Member Tod Wirth
researched the leaky fourth main problem, and taught us that the worn fourth main might be a symptom of more problems and not just the problem.
Member Mike Zahorik demonstrated the growler to diagnose defects in the generator armature.
Over sixty Model T enthusiasts attended part or all of the activities today. I admire how the members of our chapter work together to host this event each winter to educate each other and to promote the hobby. Thanks to all.
Here are a couple of pictures of the nice event.
