I know some of our members do great sketches of model T era bits and pieces. Feel free to post some.

Geeze Rich, nice work. I did some cartoon and illustration work for the commercial sector back in the day but I must say your artwork is far better. I always enjoy seeing what you have created.

This is "Model T era" but not Model T. This post may be booted because of that. This is a charcoal drawing that I did 30 years ago. This was a local '24 Dodge Brothers Business Coupe that I almost bought.

That is Awesome Mark. I will post some non-Ford but T era stuff as time permits.
That sort of thing is good contrast to the Model T and certainly is relative.
Thanks

This was given to me by a friend. After seeing my TT when I got it, he said I should have it. One of my favorites.

In the movie "Goldfinger", they put an entire crushed Lincoln in the back of a Ranchero and it didn't even bulge the tires. Rich isn't breaking new ground here.

Years ago,I had a rear end from a model T that had obviously been used to haul heavy loads. It had wooden blocks carved out of four by six blocks of wood carefully fitted between the rear spring and the axle housings. Of course the rear housings were bent so badly the ring gear ground completely through the center of the housing (I still have that housing doing service as the base for my "welding butler" if anyone wants to come by and see it!), all the bearings were the worst I ever saw. I did actually salvage a few pieces out of it, although all in all it was a really bad rear end. But I would bet it didn't sit very low when loaded.

I'm really enjoying these, Rich !! Thanks for posting them. You kinda do them a disservice by calling them "sketches". They are very refined, finished ink drawings ! (I remember that Packard - gosh, '91 seems a long time ago 😳)

Rich, I'm not talented at drawing like you, so I cheat and use an app on my tablet for making sketches from my pictures. :)

All great stuff. We have a lot of very artistic people among us. I always enjoy seeing Rich's art work in addition to his shop skills. On Oct. 28, I particularly enjoyed seeing his rendering of Conrad Fletcher's model H Stanley.
Many years ago I was quite involved with Stanley's, it was during that time I had the pleasure of building the body for Con's then model H Stanley project.The car turned out amazing when it's restoration was completed.

Yup! John Deneuser (R.I.P.) for sure! (....not sure I spelled that correctly however). I bought a couple items from John at Chickasha!

I really, REALLY enjoy seeing your artwork Rich. And as beautiful as your paintings are, the pencil drawings run a close "second"!

Thanks Harold. That is John in the sketch. What a character he was. I worked from a Steve Jelf photo and asked Steve if I could work from it. He said to ask John so I did. John didn't answer my request so I didn't use the sketch.
We have lost too many great car folks like him and a few from our local group just this year.

I will try to keep these in the sketches in the Model T era but here is one of a '47 Ford we had for a while. It was not near as satisfying as the T's for me. It had a 6-cyl engine. It was a good engine but the old flathead 8's were more fun.

Well, I was drafting supervisor over mechanical, electrical and piping at the Naval reactor facility on the Idaho desert in the mid seventies. She came to work there. Eventually I took her for a Winter ride in my Speedster and she fell in love with it.
