first drive in a while in our '21 Touring

Post by thom » Sun May 09, 2021 9:06 pm

Almost a year ago I "discovered" (or created) that the left rear wheel & rim had an alignment/misalignment problem. Yesterday, I finally fixed the problem and drove the car. It still runs great. The T will be 100 years old on May 22 and we will celebrate my oldest grandson's 13th birthday that day. (His birthday is actually the 24th, a Monday). I will drive him to his party in the T. :D

Tommy,
Congrats on solving your wheel problem....having just done something similar I can appreciate the challenges. How great it will feel to be able to drive your grandson to his party....great memory-maker for you both.

There is a certain satisfaction in curing the problem and getting out on the road.
Aren't we luck to have Model Ts? ;)
Good job!
When did I do that?

We love our T. Every time I let it set without driving it I can't believe I did that. :shock:
