Hey there 'Don the Fordor', sure looks like a better one to get back on the road than some of those sedans you have re-worked! :-)

Gheez Dan, I feel like I have Fordor measles...something is attracting them~

Another one! But it looks like you won't have to rebuild the body on this one.

Who'd a guessed there were this many Fordors around...not me.

No Steve the car appears to have been re-wooded at some time in the past. It is actually quite solid and the doors work just as they should. I will know more tomorrow but it looks to be a very solid car.

Interesting exhaust pipe connector. Was that an option?

Neil, I'm thinking its a pipe coupling. I may have to talk to the owner about that.

Wow! your very first Fordor to rebuild. Don't be afraid to ask question here on the forum there are a lot of knowledgeable folks on here who have rebuilt some of these cars in the past who can help you. :-):-):-)

Looks like a cake walk on this one Don.

Hi Gary, I don't think this will be a too long of a ordeal. But, just when you think that....stuff happens. Stay safe!!

If its a job worth doing, it's worth doing twice...or perhaps 7-8 times! My 26 Fordor was accepted by OCF. See you there?
I was thinking we'd try to get as many of them together for a group photo as we could.

Morning Eric, I may drive down for a walk thru. I didn't apply to take my car because they made it obvious that large motorhomes were not welcome. The motorhome is the only vehicle I have that can pull the trailer safely. So my OCF days are likely over.

"All modern vehicle parking will be in parking areas designated at check-in. We will be accommodating
overnight parking for campers and motorhomes. Parking map will be sent prior to Old Car Festival. Shuttle
service will be available, schedule and information coming soon"
It appears that they are allowing RV's. Quit stalling :-)

Hey that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it, well I'm sticking to something here...yuck~

You must have driven the dust off it :-)

Looks better clean, that's for sure. Stop and say hi at OCF.


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Don Booth@ Bay City, Mi on Tuesday, July 31, 2018 - 05:29 am:

I will Eric, the only thing that may keep me from going to the OCF is the Frankenmuth Car Show. Its huge and its the same weekend. I can drive the T to it and they also have a swap meet area. Its really a shame that both shows are on the same weekend...

Well I see that you ran it so fast the hood blew off!

Yes I did, now I have to get out about 10lbs of bondo and a drywall paddle...dag nab it

Don, You certainly have become the "Geru" and "go to" person for Model T Fordors.

Respect and appreciation are in order as these are amongst the hardest T's to re-wood.

Keith

Well thank you Keith I appreciate that. And I complain but I really do enjoy working on these ole cars. Its just nice to have something other than a complete restore.
