Default Guility as charged ??!!

Ok they just extended our stay at home orders for a month ....wow i am really missing Terry and the grandson Jake .
They did a lot around here , i cant seem to keep a focus , i just cleaned off the counter and have one more chevrolet conversion to box and ship ( my goal for tonight) then try to catch up old orders as most are cleaned up blasted and bagged for reassembly ( terrys job) .
Looks like they are pretty sure we need another three to four weeks , and i have to be really carefull with a respitory issue (as well as Terry as well) cant be sick !!!!!! And its all around us ........
AND i have sinned and bought a model T project .........

That looks like a good starting point for a project. That will look sweet when you get the V8-60 in there.

Now, take care of yourself until all this nonsense is over.

I have owned a few of these cars but the look is "simple" , as in make it as simple as you can , i have a friend in my T club thats has one he built from scratch like this one , made it reliable but "simple" barn find look . A speedster .... Heres his pic and another look i really like .. ....

Funny story i was taking my 97 year old father in law a few years back on a ride around the Indy 500 track. I was very proud to be able to do that in my 23 T speedster with modified engne etc. So i say what do you think ????? He says i dont know what to compare it to , we owned a ton of Model Ts but never ever had one worth a shit !!! I didnt ask again ???? rbg lol
