Re: Test drive

Dean,

As many as you can - just take that car on your daily drives - if anything major is going to happen it probably will be within 100 miles or so of local stop and go trips don’t you think ?

1904 Model B Coils

Hi R.V. ✋

The 1904 Model B had no coils in it when I picked it up so KD sent you some I guess.

He is driving to Chickasha with Don.

They pretty much did most of the mechanical restoration labor on the Model B.
