Re: For Sale: 1926 Model T Coupe

Walt, That car is a STEAL at that price!!! If I was even halfway thinking of another T, that would be it, right now! And your description is excellent. The only thing I didn't see is if the rear end has bronze thrust washers. This car will be sold soon.....

Just my opinion,

Re: Swap Meet Tips

At swap meets I carry a newspaper bag like I had back in the '50's. They are strong and designed to carry quite a bit of weight. The best one I like has a padded shoulder area and it has a flap to cover the contents up if it rains. Not easy to find, but they are out there.

If you don't know or are not sure if your rear axle has had the babbitt thrust washers replaced with bronze ones, take the rear axle apart to make sure. You could lose your brakes if the babbitt ones fail. I know, it happened to me and lots of others.

Re: Body blocks for a '27

Steve, The reason your body and hood don't line up properly might be because your frame is slightly bowed. This happens where the two arms are on the side of the flywheel area due to the concentration of weight at that point.

Re: Webinar

I was on both webinars this morning. It took a little help fro Chris, our webmaster, but then went well, and I'm no computer whiz either.

I really enjoyed Tony Bowkers garage tour & hope to see more of those in the future.

Re: In car Mag recharge

We just charged one yesterday afternoon on a friends '26 Touring and it was easy and the results really great! We used 36 volts from a golf cart battery. Just a quick zap or two does it.

Re: 1917 Top question

Hi Larry, Yes, it is the Rip Van Winkle car. I forgot to mention that in my post above. I'm not at home so I can't look up which issue of The Vintage Ford that article was in, but I think it was still while Bruce was the Vintage Ford editor. That would make it before the early '90's I think. Cheers,...

It was found in WI and written up in The Vintage Ford magazine and also in Bruce MaCauly's book "The Model T Ford, The Car That Changed The World"? The articles on this all original car h...

Re: Insurance company recommendations

I have been with Hagerty for about 10 years and have 6 collector cars insured with them. I've had one claim (damage from a broken rear axle shaft) and it was handled promptly to my complete satisfaction. I completely recommend them.
