Re: Survived another Chickasha trip (with pictures)

Great pictures. Thanks for posting. Some really good deals for you there! Have seen a few pictures of that nice black 1915 Touring. How much for that one? Also a couple of OHV set ups in your pictures. Seems to be a few of them around at the moment.

I have named my new Model T Eunice! It came with a rubber chicken tied to it that had Eunice on it. The chicken is gone but the memory will stay!

Re: What are these holes in the cylinder wall of a Ford Special motor?

I assumed that my car would be assessed as a write off by the insurance company so with that in mind I began the search for anoth...

Re: edit USER NAME? Can it be done?

Bill, I can see that you are Bill! A great feature of this format is your proper full name is displayed at the right hand side of the post. A different user name tells me you are a fan of 6 volt! No real need to change as we can see both names as you post.
