Re: Model T University

Hi Mike, Thank you for posting these pictures.
BTW, the speaker identified as Jim Zangel is not correct & his name is Greg Zangl. It looks like a good time was had by all, sorry I missed it.

Re: Roger Peterson passed away

Rest in Peace, Roger. We remember Roger and Jan from several tours. In the two examples Dave Simmering related above, we were there for both of them. They were a riot!!!

Our sincere sympathy to Jan and Rogers' entire family. He will be missed.

Re: 23 Center door engine locks up and then starts again???

Low on oil? Then locking up. When it cools down, it can be started again, to have it repeated again. Or maybe it has a bad bearing (s) that seize when hot. Just the first things that come to mind.

I have a '27 Fordor that was made in Oct., 1926. The original upholstery is still in the car, but the lower front cushions are worn and kind of raggedy. The front seat backrest and the entire rear seat upholstery are pretty much ok. Of course, the upholstery color is faded, but on the lower cushion ...
