That model T is looking really nice! Beautiful. Hopefully your rebuilt engine will give you many years of fun miles!

Is that a Tatra in the garage next to the T? Fascinating automobiles.


I always enjoy hearing from you here. I hope to see many more interesting pictures from the places you and the T visit.

Mikhail G, Do you mind my asking what year your Tatra 87 was built? I do not know a lot about them, but I understand that they were well ahead of their time and often are somewhat earlier than their style would suggest they should be.
While many of us over here do study the history of automobiles from all around the world, and certainly the early days in Europe and the great racing cars of France, Italy, and Germany (Deutschland), cars of such nations as Czechoslovakia are often not studied enough here. Their histories are also rich with innovations and record making runs and races.

I just need to repeat, your model T touring car looks wonderful!

Thank you.

Tatra is 1942. This is one of 3142 cars built from 1936 till 1950 and one of the last cars built during the German occupation of Czechoslovakia.
