Just got a 27 TT in from Colorado. I live in S/W
Missouri. A fellow named Bill Hagen brought it
in for me. I understand he is just starting out
in the car hauling business. I was quite satisfied with him and thought his pricing was
more than fair. Anyone wishing to try him his
970-388-6875.

Great. I think that some of these independent car haulers should start advertising on the Vendors list.

Gene, Thanks for posting the pix of the TT. As a 76 soon to be 77 year old technologically challenged
old guy I would have no idea how to post pixs. I have moved up to a modern flip phone but the smart phones are beyond me.
Hopefully I'll get truck on the road before I hit
80 or die in the process.

Gordon, when somebody our age is befuddled by how to post pictures I always tell them, "Get some kid to teach you how."

Need some kid for my phone and computer too !!
Can't get the darned thing to print either.
It's not easy being an old fogy in this
technological world. It was a lot easier
when we only had the old Philco Radio in
the corner and when you picked up the phone,
there was Hattie Erickson,the operator and you just told her who you wanted to talk to

You got a great deal on that truck from Gene. It shouldn't take much to make it a nice runner. - Matt

Will do Gene
Progress will be be slow. I did manage to finish
the chicken mansion for my wife so that cleared
the way to start. Need to send an order to
Lang's for some wiring harnesses and a switch.
Radiator to the shop for cleaning. It looks in
great shape and not much need of repair.
The forum folks are just great !!! I have been
reading and learning a lot from them already
and they all seem so willing to help too

Gordon, what Gene said. I like the TT. Here is mine I have been working on

thanks Dallas,
looks like you're way ahead of me with your TT.
I had a T speedster years ago and a 24 Franklin and a 28 Essex rumble seat coupe and a 30 A roadster. All of which went to others over time.
A hitch in the Air Force, kids an oft repeated story. The Essex was my first car for $10. It
was sold to a local old fellow by my Grandfather
and father. They had a Hudson/Essex dealership.
Before that they sold Gray/Dort autos. I have a
a flyer for the Gray/Dort somewhere.
Best of luck with your TT
Gordon

Gordon C, One of our regular forum members has not one, but two, of the few surviving Gray automobiles! A very interesting car with connections to the model T Ford, and one of the worst survival rates in American antique automobiles. I don't know actual production numbers, but apparently thousands of Gray automobiles were built? Yet only about ten survive. Dort did somewhat better.

Enjoy that TT!
