Re: 16 and looking for a Model T as a first car

I think the best Model T book of all time is Tin Lizzie by Stern. If you do not have the love for a model T it soon will not be worth the trouble! Bud. :D

Re: Dressing the period part

I think most people could easily tell your status in life by what you drove. Once the model T New Fangled and high dollar but in later years not so much. The later T's were working peoples cars and while people of the time dressed in their best for pictures i think not everyday? Bud. :D

My question is why?? Far from a expert but i think there are several profiles of Model T cams so would it be worth the effort to use a Model A cam?? Bud. :D
