Re: Looks like fun

Great that you are able to pass on some knowledge. The lack of this is how things get forgotten. Thanks Hank! jw

Re: Odds and ends

Another question, on the military photo of the tracked model T, I know that the only way to steer this is with differential braking, anyone know how they accomplished this? I am thinking rocky mountains or similar. They would have to have been good brakes!

Re: Touring car

Tom, I really appriciate you posting the photos, It really takes me back in time and makes me wonder if any of these cars are still on the road today. These photos puts things into prospective of what things were like 100 years ago. That could be only one life time ago! Thanks.jw

Re: Speedsters

I know it isn't how Henry did it but it has been going on since the birth of our cars. Even Henry raced stripped down cars. I enjoyed building my car and love to drive...

Re: Need advice adjusting clutch

I just ran into a clutch problem that I wish I would have figured out before we put the hogs head back on. When the car was purchased I noticed that the clutch was going over center causing it to want to stay down. After pulling the inspection cover off to inspect, the low band was wore out and was...
