Coming along. Meanwhile, Peter is starting to put the Motor together. Needless to say, I'm champing at the bit.....

That is beautiful and exactly the way I would have done it! :-) I think we all are anxious to see it all together and running.

Rob that is going to be one beautiful K you've got. Hoping to see it at the Homecoming in July at the Model T Museum in Richmond.I know there are a lot of guys who like their Ts to be a little crusty which is the way they found them. Personally I like them restored back to showroom. I would make an exception for the Rip Van Winkle T or maybe even Otis. Looking good.

It will be a beautiful car and this is the right thing to do with it. I'm glad you took the before photos of it because they are wonderful too.

This project is really moving along at an impressive pace. Do you know how many people are actively engaged in working on the car ?

Where else could we see one of those? I am intrigued.
Thanks
Rich

Dick, I believe they have six full time employees. I also believe there are four or five current projects/restorations going on. When i visited the first part of this year, everyone was busy and it seems like they are quite efficient with their time.

Rich, my guess is the closest Model K to you are the two in Nebraska (ours and at Pioneer Village in Minden NE) or two at the California Automobile collection near San Francisco.

Looks so nice it would be hard to get it dusty or dirty when driving it!

Maybe so, but I would bite the bullet and rise to the occasion!

Gil,
We are the same. In all likelihood, the next owner will be a museum. In the interim, my goal is to expose anyone interested to the incredible quality of a 1907 Ford Model K.

Not a bad gig.... :-)

Rob,
Good to hear that you plan on eventually donating the car to a museum. As luck would have it, I'm planning on opening a rolling museum next month. The theme will be showing the public century old cars, one dirt road farmhouse at a time. :-)

Looks Great, Thanks Rob for sharing

A MUSEUM???!!! I've been saving my pennies, hoping to buy it in your estate sale! Oh, wait - I'm 81. I guess I'll have to start working on Plan B.

I guess I should get my name changed to museum now so there is no question later!

Rob! NO MUSEUM!

Your cars RUN, they should not be stagnant.
Think of all of us who have truly experienced a Model K by riding in it at road speed, versus seeing it sitting static in a museum.
Maybe when the time comes for you to pass on your machine, I will have hit the lottery and be able to afford it!

Happy Belated Birthday
Enjoy Chickasaw for those of us that are watching snow fall.
