Re: Metal seat frame cutting my upholstery-looking for protection

How about splitting a 3/8 vacuum hose to slip over the edge. It may need some trim adhesive to keep it in place.

The garage was dark and I saw a spark in the wrong place, The copper spark plug wire had come loose from the brass end that connects it to the coil. They are soldered or...

roadster top renew tips

I'm starting to renew my 21 roadster top, hopefully it'll get warmer soon. I have the bows covered and installed on the car, I just thought I would tap into this great resource for any tips or what not to do. I know 90 degrees with bright sunshine will help and I'm it no hurry, thanks Chuck.

rear window curtain 1921

I'll be replacing the top on my 21 roadster all I have is the bows so not much to go by. Did the 21 roadsters have a roll-up back curtain with fasteners at the belt, or were they tacked along the bottom and covered with hidem, thanks.

Re: old photo

One thing I liked about this photo was the model t was more likely to have survived, being the one that was tucked away in some old barn, while the new terraplane was pulling everyday chores, well past WW2. I don't know what year the T is, but looks in good shape for it's age.

old photo

While sorting old family photos, my wife found this one from 1935. I believe the new car is a 1934 Hudson Terraplane. What a difference twenty years makes!

Re: back yard brake up grade

There are two conditions where good brakes are needed. One is going downhill. We have hills so steep that even in low gear you need some brakes to keep the speed down. In flat open country, it might not be needed. Usually when on a road trip the T is so much slower than the modern cars that there i...
