Re: Flying Model T

In the early 60's our neighbors had a bachelor uncle who lived nearby and was still driving his 1920 touring. He bought it new and it was the only car he ever owned. Going for rides in that car started my interest in Model T's . This car is mentioned in Roscoe Sheller's book "Me and the Model T" as ...

Re: Unusual Spark Plug

I agree Kevin, I'm not into Jackalopes but I had to have this one when I saw it. The orange cap has a brass contact the touches the electrode when in the correct position. Definitely evidence of having been used.

Unusual Spark Plug

Re: LED brake light options

I have this type on a 25 roadster pickup and a 14 run about. The one's on the pickup are 9 inches long and mounted about 2 inches back from the end of the bed. Very discrete when not light but really get your attention when you apply the brakes. Found them at a led vendor at a swap meet. They are al...

Estate Auction Finds

I recently attended an estate auction and came away with a couple interesting items.
Spencer locking and tilting steering wheel for a Model T and a Elgin Six radiator to be used on a future speedster project. The radiator has a 2 inch Vee and seems to be in very good condition.
