This is a 1920 built in 1966 and rebuilt in 1975.

Here is the 1914 speedster that somehow showed up a few months ago. I finally got it started a few days ago. It is not the main project, so it only gets worked on when Im waiting for other things and have a little spare time ..

I always liked Phil Reed's T he drove before he helped build "Daffodil". Phil passed away last September at the age of 98. He was a great car guy.

They're all GORGEOUS......and give me ideas for the car I hope to start this spring. Walt, did you ever give thought to simply sanding and varnishing that beautiful wood body? Don't get me wrong, it turned out nice but the wood "would" have really made a different car!

This is Ricky. I built it in the 90's for my daughter and son-in-law but now the younger grandson thinks it is his.
Who am I to complain.....

It still runs good, I took it to Richmond last year and it ran just fine for the whole tour. I took it to tee AZ Speedter Run in 2018 and we came fourth, I was getting tired, old age.....

Rod L, NINE! You are worse than me! I have collected, resurrected, driven and enjoyed five in the past 45 years, all of them sold despite me wanting to keep them. Numbers six seven and eight waiting in the wings.

Rich, Love the yellow speedster, this is the first time I can remember seeing it. Do you drive it much? The detail is nice. It is great all you sharing. These cars have to be built, there is a special kind of appreciation here.

This was the speedster I had for 35 years ... just sold it a couple of years ago to buy my '23 Runabout. I do miss the speedster though ... drove it for many many miles.

Scott,

Your Paco is spectacular. I love the lowered stance, it really makes the car look sporty. To my taste, a T speedster or racer needs to get closer to the ground to make it look like.....a speedster. The color is also great.

Is that a Model C Roof head?

Here is my speedster/ race car. It is registered as a 1921. The unique thing about this car is the automatic c4 transmission. It has an early Rajo racing head with out the heat riser. It has a model A full pressure crank and insert bearings.

I might finish this before I retire. I actually have most of the parts to complete, I just need time and motivation.

Parts gathered (and thus planned), include complete A steering from column to front axle, T engine with '28 Chevy head, 19" A wheels, '24 cut off touring body. Frame has 5" drop front and rear, and is shortened 4" in wheelbase. More of a Gow Job than a speedster though.

I think 2 engines in a model T might be like having 2 wives. I've not tried either both at the same time.
