Re: Restored my 1915 California license plates. What do you think? ...Picture.

WOW! Are those porcelain like the 1914's or metal? Either way, unbelievable job.

Re: Intermittent Electrical Contact - Suggestions?

Marv, If you're running out of things to check, you might want to check the wiring on the back of the coil box. If nothing else, this post will bump this topic to the top of the forum! I have a T (no starter) that would start first crank, every time, no matter how long or short between drives. But a...

Steve,
Glad you're happy. My only problem when I contacted them was they told me there was an 8 month backlog, so I went to someone else. Did you have any problems with wait-time?

Re: Death Valley

My great grandfather founded Baker, CA ("Gateway to Death Valley") in the early '20's. Both Death Valley Jack and Death Valley Scotty helped him do things around the property, but mainly they drank a lot! One night, coming back from the bar, Scotty fell in the new cesspool they were digging and brok...

Re: This Day In History - December 1, 1913

If we're talking about the same thing Henry, and it probably depends on where we're getting our information, I've read that the first moving assembly line at Ford was introduced Oct 7, 1913. Because my 1914 was built Oct 7, 1913, I always tell everyone that it was built the first day of the moving a...

Re: Brake or Break

I used to always get enjoyment when I saw people confuse the spelling of "break" and "brake", especially on the forum.
Now, after reading your extremely entertaining post above, I see that, with the Model T, they eventually mean the same!
Good one Bob! Always enjoy your posts.

Hey Steven, I did the same with my 1917 touring. Supposedly you attach brass wood screws thru the drilled holes into the framing under the sheet metal, but I didn't want to remove the sheet metal or upholstery either to find out where the wooden frames are. I went to a "real" hardware store (a big b...

Re: Anyone Know of a Good California Based Top Installer?

There is a really good guy in Santee (northeast of San Diego) that did my 1914 T and a friends '26 T, but I'm at that age where I can't remember his name and can't find the paperwork! He was referred by Ray Wells in El Cajon so, if Santee's a convenient location, you won't find anyone better. Call R...

My 1914 touring was built Oct 7, 1913. I have the same tail light you describe on your car (doesn't mean it wasn't changed over the past 100+ years).

Re: Just to test if I understood it.

Mark, Not trying to belabor the point, but that's what I did and it came out 90 x 38 (38 is under 50 so it won't accept it!). If I keep the aspect ratio and raise the "38" to "50", then the "90" goes to "105" (over 90 so not accepted). I'm guessing that if I want both cars in the same picture, I nee...

Re: Just to test if I understood it.

I apologize, I also did this on Chris' 2018 post.
Can we only post one pic on our profile? I have a pic of both my cars together, but it either comes out 90 x 38 (under 50) or 105 x 90 (over 90 x 90).
Any other combination under 90, but over 50 gives a distorted picture?
Thank you.
