Re: A New Way To Load & Unload & Safely Transport Your Model T In An Enclosed Trailer

The 1 thing that jumps out at me is if a white wall tire scrubs against that metal bracket it might make a mark on it.Upseting the owner.other than that,this idea makes a 1 man show a bit easier to perform.

Re: Is this radiator junk? 300 for a radiator???

What gets my goat is why the same factory in Wangfuyang China can't go ahead and make some low and high radiators to actually FIT a Model T. it would be a affordable option for the speedster crowd for sure.
