Wtt model TT truck

Good morning, I'm looking for a TT truck to use on the ranch, flatbed or dump. Want to trade either a 1909 REO touring project that has a new body, or a 1909 EMF race car project. Both are fairly complete. You can contact me at the email or phone number in the photo below. IMG_20190719_090343049-918...

WTB front motor mount

Good morning, I'm looking for a front motor mount like the one from the parts book photo below. Notice there are lobes where the spring clamps bolt on rather than straight across like the later one below.

Any help finding one is appreciated.

Wow the photos say a lot. That car is like time travel back to 1916. If I didn't have so many irons in the fire I would love to own that car. How about

I'm surprised it hasn't sold yet.

Re: Out west power outages, some advice

Looks like another power shutdown mid week here! Time to fire up the generator again. Also need to stock up on fuel. Another inconvenience is all the gas stations are shut down, and you can't buy gas or diesel. For the ones that do have generator backup power, cars are lined down the road a quarter ...
