Magazine Wanted

Post by Loftbed » Sun Jan 27, 2019 7:43 pm

I am looking for a MTFCA or MTFCI Magazine cover that depicts this 1913 Speedster. I don't know what year it was on, but the car was completed in 2004, probably some issue between then and 2012? I just purchased the car and am trying to build a file with as much history as possible.
I will compensate anyone with that magazine who is willing to part with it.

I don't ever recall it being featured on the cover of the Vintage Ford or Model T Times. I've seen the car, know the original builder and he was on the old forum, so maybe he's here. If he posts here, great, if you get tired of waiting, let me know i'll give you his contact info.

Thanks Hal, I appreciate the effort.

If anyone else has that issue, I'd appreciate a response, at least an date issue number?

BTW, the workmanship, detail and engineering that went into this car is nothing short of incredible!

If you can't find out which magazine and which issue you need, send the photos to editors Natalie and Aleesa. I expect both clubs have issues since 2004 available, and they might be able to track it down for you.

Try Vol 40 Number 4 July/Aug 2005. It's on the back cover.
When did I do that?

What are friends for? I'm always elated when I can actually find something. I do hope you locate a copy.

Stop looking, I found a nearly new copy in my own collection. Who knew?
it seems that one of the cars I bought some time ago came with a large collection of T magazines, on the off chance that the one I was looking for might be inthe stack, I dug them out and EUREKA!! there it was.

Thank for looking guys
