Re: I'm sure looking forward to the next issue

I just received mine and read the article on the 2019 ocean to ocean tour. Nice article, but what's up with not having a full list of participants and where they came from? It would seem like a little recognition for such a grand accomplishment would be in order.

Re: Anyone have pics of Gray Tires on T's?

Probably doesn't count, but here is a comparison on a speedster.
I had them on this car for about 4 years, the same for the whites. the greys seemed to wear better, and never had any discoloration issues with the greys either.

Model "T" web site list on this forum?

I was just over on the Model A forum, they have a very extensive list of Model A websites that pertain to Model A restoration.
Why don't we start something similar here?

Re: Cramped TT cabs

A few years ago we visited the "Custer last stand" memorial in Montana. In their museum there is a display of cavalry uniforms. My first reaction was why are they showing children's uniforms? They weren't, The soldiers were that small!
