Re: The 1919 - 1922 Model T Ford

My favorite T Model is our 1922 touring. It’s a low radiator/hood model but what may set it apart aside from turning 98 years old this year is that it has a steel firewall. It’s factory and not something cobbled up out of a later firewall. I haven’t been able to find anything more than a mere mentio...

Cleaning a concrete floor

What are some ways and cleansers you all have used to clean a smooth concrete floor to at least minimize oil stains? I realize you're never going to get all of them out completely.

Thanks kindly in advance.

Re: Cobb X Shinn and Witt Post Cards

I just re-visited the Cobb X. Shinn post card posting. I see them offered on T-Bay and are frequently listed as Cobb AND (caps mine) Shinn. Actually the post cards were the product of one man whose middle name began with the letter X, for Xavier perhaps? Moreover his real first name was Conrad, Cobb...

Along the lines of Raoul's recent post -

Melbourne KY is still a small back woodsy community some 25 miles upriver from Cincinnati on the banks of the mighty Ohio River. Sharper eyes than mine will identify the Model T's pedigree.

Preserving unused RTV

What are some tricks you all have devised to keep unused RTV from drying up inside the tube once it's been opened?

I have tried several of my own, but short of using the whole tube at one time, I've not had much luck.

Thanks kindly, Tom in Taylor Mill, KY 41015

The two original rooms are still occupied today and are referred to as the "Tavern Room" and the "Hunt Room." Johnny Hauer was the first owner and operated the Dixie Tea Room as an ice cream pa...

Re: What did you do with your T today ?

What is it they say about imitation and flattery ? I went to Klingenberg's Hardware, a mom-n-pop business, down the hill from me and I was soon the owner of a dozen 8/32" wing nuts. They're not brass but for 12 cents a pop they're good enough for who they're for. I put a set on the Model A as well. ...

Re: Wine Barrel trunk on pick-up...

Here’s a photo op from a tour held a couple of summers ago in the canal town of Metamora, IN hosted by the West Central Indiana Model T'ers.

The biggest difference is in this app the barrel is rotated 90 degrees. On a warm day you can still catch the faint aroma of the former bourbon contents.

It’s been said never put off till tomorrow what can be put off till the day after tomorrow. That said, tomorrow's tomorrow is here.

Re: Martin Parry cab build.

A friend has a wooden cab truck of unknown pedigree built on a T rather than a TT chassis which bears a strong resemblance to yours. The big difference is that his cab has sliding, or sort of pocket, doors. Have you ever come across any indication(s) that M-P built such a cab ? Here's a photo of the...
