The photo Mark posted was taken Sept.29th in 1946, the day after I bought my 1910. I was 14 years old at that time.

Enjoy the day! Get all "Gussied up" and take the "T" for a ride. Sounds like a good excuse for an ice cream run to me.

So how much did a 1010 T running condition sell for in 1946?

Wish you a happy day and many more.

Good for you Darel. Hope you have many more. Remember not to let them light all the candles on the cake at one time unless you invite the fire department!

Big Jon & Sparky used to sing a birthday song that I adapted:

Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday, just for you.
Happy Birthday, and may all your dreams come true.
When you light up the candles, you'll touch off quite a blaze.
A fire involving that much fuel will burn for days.

Have a swell one!

1909 -10 Model T tourings were going for around $125 and that is what I paid for mine. Remember that in 1946 a new Ford was listed at $1250 and $125 was a good pay for a month.

Thanks to you all for the nice messages. We are having some friends over on Sunday to both celebrate our 50th anniversary and my 86th birthday. Yes, my wife is 8 years younger than I. Her birthday is in December so it is a December - June marriage with the older person A June person, not December.

Thanks you all. And, Jay - I have my original teeth in great condition. Only two crowns and one bridge. I hope to be at the reunion in July, but my experienced employee (part time) wants to retire and he is way younger than I am.

the picture was flipped. Here it is corrected.

You see that I can lean to the right or left. I am an clinic instructor for the local Twin City Model A Ford Club. The 1928-31 Model As. We have a 1931 Standard Roadster and a 1931 wide bed pickup.

You know you're getting old when the candles on your birthday cake cost more than the cake itself. :-)

Darel. Was Your car originally white like in the 1946 photo. I noticed in Your profile photo it is now black. You know Your getting old when the first candle on Your cake burns out before the last one is lit.

Happy Birthday from Texas
