First day was great fun !! Here’s a few pics from my ‘26 roadster. Corn was being harvested. Amish boy gave me permission to take his picture making silage. You know the drill - touch the upside down picture to make it rightside up

Re: Tire carrier . What am I missing to mount it ?

It’s missing that bottom riveted-on piece to fasten the spare rim/tire and keep it from swinging back and forth from the top two rim mounting points. It would also have provision for a padlock.

Re: What have you done with your T in September?

Went into town this morning in the 100 year old Taurus (centerdoor) to get a haircut. Unfortunately the exhaust pack nut came unscrewed and slid down the exhaust when about 1/2 mile from home. Turned around because I was scared the floorboards might catch fire, then the car, then me...and I wouldn’t...

Re: The cost of Model T travel

Shoot ..... I think “Model T travel” or driving Model T s doesn’t cost - it pays. It pays by clearing one’s head on back country roads or fueling the old male ego by driving a T thru a tourist destination and smilin for the cameras. It also pays me by living in nostalgia temporarily. I’ve been drivi...

Mark, I think that 2nd picture has us looking at the clear lens with the blue lens visible on the other side. BTW, that’s a pat’d 1908 stamped on the chimney and not a 32 so; check the top half of the font. It’s probably painted brass !

I began prepping the T for Covered Bridges later this month when I noticed huge scrubbing wear on the LF tire. I brought this set of 5 last March at Chickasha.

Love your assessment Scott..Right on ! I don’t see a problem with Califunny’s legislative reaction to the Kevin Hart incident. Might even increase the Model T owners/drivers from that state to Texas and other reasonable jurisdictions 😜

I have and use an original Spindle bushing reamer. And I only ream the lower new bushing to fit the spindle in the axle yoke. The entire weight of the front of the T is on the upper bushings. Why ream them ?
