Tomorrow I will take Henrietta to the city for an identity check prior to registering her. Can you believe they took her off the system, just because she had not been registered for 60+ years!





I have a top cover removed from an old car and saved as a pattern. The young trimmer down the street has not quite got the gist of preserving a car. He does as I ask, but he is not really tuned in. Perhaps when I can drive the car down to his workshop he will come on board.

60 years Allan?
Just not fair is it ! I turn 65 tomorrow so 1958 was a long time ago! Good luck with the authorities

I'm 60+. Hope the powers that be don't decide that I'm invalid.

Allan,

How old is the bed on Henrietta? It looks perfect with the theme of the car. I want my "Elvin" to have one exactly like that. Did you build it? How did you get the look of that bed if you did? Hope you don't mind if I "steal" that look.

To each his own, But I think A Model T survivor should look like that.

Thanks,
Terry

In 2002 I tried to get a '45 ford 2 Ton dump truck re-registered. It had 1974 plates on it. They refused. :-)
Henrietta looks great!
You gonna teach the trimmer how to drive that model T? That might get him to see the light. ;-)

I always enjoy the "Southern" model Ts! They have a special beauty all their own, whether they are well restored or survivor state. Henrietta is wonderful!

Terry, the tray is farmer built back in the days of old. This one is well built, using new timber throughout. It has never been painted, nor has it seen much weather. I will post more details on its construction and some of the fittings used some time later. I'm having too much fun at the moment.

All, the guys at the inspection centre were gobsmacked!
"No, they didn't come with brake lights."
"They didn't have a speedo, so there is no odometer to read."
"25 models never had a chassis number."
"There is a body number under the seat."

I got around the chassis number bit by stamping my Army service number on the left hand rail. Otherwise they have a habit of allotting an 18 character VIN, and charging a fee of course.

There was a large notice posted in the waiting area banning photos within the facility. Obviously this directive is not directed at the staff, three of whom took photos as I prepared to leave.

They are not a bad bunch when you have stuff to fill all the boxes on their forms. I have been through their mill a number of times, the worst being when I had to get an out of state Disability access van for my son certified as a 5 seater.
