Re: Can we Have a Dedicated "Period Photo" Section of Forum?

I have probably already lost the argument on this, but I like to browse lots of topics across the Model T spectrum, and more categories just means more places to have to look each day to see what's new. My wife calls it losing time - “haven’t you read everything by now? Come to bed...” Don’t worry....

Re: Turlock Swap report??

Well... for a first timer it was overwhelming. Weather was perfect. Saturday was slammed with crowds, Sunday not so much. Apparently I have friends in high places so I got a vendor wrist band and got in Friday nite. I got one of the last RV spots to be had as traffic sucked on 99 and it took 5 hours...

It's good to hear the Brassworks is selling cores again.
That I don’t know. They were out 6weeks for new radiators.

Radiator rebuild progress. Almost done.

I took a break from working on the website today and stopped by the radiator repair shop to check on progress. The core arrived yesterday and the owner, Randy, was assembling it and he let me watch the whole process. There really is an art to doing this right, and Randy is an artist. He’s been rebui...

What lives inside an old T’s radiator... wow.

I decided that adding pepper to the radiator every few trips wasn’t going to be a good answer to the multi-leak problem. Originally I had ordered a new one from one of the vendors but it was 6 weeks out. I then found one of the last radiator repair shops in Northern CA is in Santa Rosa and cancelled...

Re: Just an Old Car Painting

What I recall about the oil can is that I hadn't finished painting it (1990s), at the time I rediscovered the painting. I painted it in (2013) before posting it. This is one of a few paintings I did prior to 2001. I was doing more of a cartoon style at that time and painting much less than now. Ric...

Jeff, if you do a lot of driving, especially on less-than-perfect roads, let us know how the new radiator holds up. Is there a concern about these new radiators from Brassworks?

I found the perfect persuasion device for my wife. It works on the insanely noisy T 6 volt electrical system and has 2 USB charge ports. One for me and one for her iPhone’s hungry power (2amp). 2 wires and Hidden under the dash - it’s 2”x1.5”. So useful! BB1C1FC6-09AE-4AE9-A760-3E531B3C6DFA.jpeg 902...
