Sounds like a great plan Richard! A little T therapy would do us all good.

Hey with most of these Model T's over 100 years old they have been through a lot, seeing the highs and lows we have faced as a nation. A little "T" time in the garage to clear our thoughts for a while will be good.

The next several week ends will be working on my 26 as well, hang in there fellas were gonna get through this.

Drove mine to the shop today. To nice not to have. :D Don't see a reason not to drive them and yes a lot less traffic to deal with. Everyone is out walking around here.
I know the voices aren't real but damn they have some good ideas! :shock:

Before I started on the interior. The grandson was over and announced that he needed some T action.
So I loaded them up drove about 10 minutes. That seemed to satisfy them.
Then the interior work started.

Just can't deny someone from getting their T action.

Assemble the new Ruckstell Axle that I bought from Chaffins- the first day I found out about their sale. Was going to wait, but since I am stuck at home..... :roll:
