We Are Moving to Petoskey, Michigan

Post by Ron Patterson » Sun Nov 01, 2020 8:25 am

Effective December 7, 2020 we are moving. Our new address will be 1118 Jennings Avenue Petoskey, Michigan 49770. Please send me a private email on this Forum or call our old number 859-881-1677, you will hear a message with our new contact information. I will reply if you ask for me to call you back. I am doing this to avoid placing my new personal information in the clear on-line to foil those who would besiege me with Spam calls and advertising emails.
Most of you in the Model T hobby know me; I have been rebuilding Model T Ford ignition coils for over 30 years, rebuilt over 25,000 coils and have hundreds of satisfied customers all over the world.
Here is what you can reasonably expect; properly rebuilt coils will operate correctly for about 7500 miles and then start to falter due to normal coil point wear. At that point you only need to have the points replaced and adjusted at a reduced cost.
You should also understand that the Model T Ford electrical system is comprised of subsystems. Rebuilt coils are only one of those subsystems. If you still have ignition troubles, we are here to provide professional advice to find and repair problems with the other subsystems (i.e. timer, wiring, coilbox and Magneto) so the entire ignition system works correctly.
We offer the experienced Model T Ford electrical system services available and know how to make the Model T Ford ignition system, FA (Fred Allison) starting and lighting system work as was originally intended.
Please contact me if I can be of help.

Welcome to Michigan! The Petoskey area is one of the most beautiful areas in northwestern Michigan, and that is true for all four seasons! You will enjoy the Lake Michigan vistas and have the satisfaction of living in an area that others view as a vacation destination. Petoskey and the surrounding area has everything you need for great living and I know you'll enjoy it. If you haven't had a chance, be sure to visit the "tunnel of trees" and stop in Harbor Springs for some of "Tom's Mom's" chocolate-cherry chip cookies! There are some great Model T'ers in the area so you won't lack for those who share your interests. On behalf of all Michigan Model Ter's let me welcome you to our state.

Ron - If you have long-standing ties with that part of Michigan, you are no doubt aware of this, but there is a website called "The Leland Report", originally started long ago by Keith Burnham and one of his sons, who is now gradually becoming more and involved with the running of The Leland Report due to Keith's advancing age and declining health. I mention this because you'll find that The Leland Report an on-going site with a wealth of information about the part of Michigan (Leland & Leelanau County) that you are moving near to. Congratulations on your move to a very beautiful part of out country & Michigan in particular. Keith calls it "The Land of Delight", and if you don't know why, you're soon to find out due to relocating there. Check out "The Leland Report" and maybe sometime, let me know what you think,.....harold

Welcome home to Michigan! Some people who are either not from here, or who believe the recent bad press get confused about why we Michiganders love the state so much. That said, I believe it is an outdoorsman's and old car lover's paradise. Glad to have you so close.

Perry, where would we be without your quick witt and sense of humor!! I laughed my butt off at that picture!

Ron, enjoy that "upper part of the Lower Peninsula"...all kidding aside about the winters, it is a gorgeous area. Interesting there's a small town called Bay View nearby, just as we do here in Ohio. Been decades since I was up in the U.P., yet another drop dead gorgeous area. Eric, you are correct too!

Cross Village population = 93. Michigan video makes it look like a great Model T area. Take your time and drive all day.
