The Model-T Milk Truck

This is cooler than spit. The image above was sent to me by Joe Young out of Slapout, Alabama. The milk truck belonged to his grandfather – his grandfather’s two sons (Hey Joe, doesn’t that make one of them your father? Maybe?) stand proudly beside. YES!

I love old images like this.

Don’t Throw Away Your ‘T’

A lot of you guys have probably already seen this. We featured it on jalopyjournal.com a few years ago and it was a frequent email bomb for years as well. However, Glenn Smith recently reminded me of it and decided a repost was in order. It’s pretty amazing to see the prices and the marketing pitch is glorious.

A Neat Old Knock-Down

I found this old “knock-down” while cruising the Ford Barn galleries and just had to feature it… These coach built trucks have always enamored me as they are built so purposely and I’m continually left wondering what that exact purpose was. In any case, you can see more images here.

The Last 365 Days Of A

Well, the young man pulled it off… If you remember, Jonathan decided to park his late model car and use his model-a sedan for everyday transportation – rain, shine, or snow. Not surprisingly at all (to this Ford man anyhow), he was able to pull it off with minimal drama. His final post sums it all up well.

Check it out.

Charley Harper Illustrations – Tin Lizzie book

Charles Harper (1922- 2007) was an extremely gifted illustrator who drew his prime work from the late 40s throughout the 60s. If you have old copies of Ford Times from these years, you’ll see many of his charming wildlife bird and rural scene drawings throughout many issues. In 1955 he teamed up with famous author Philip Van Doren Stern on the amazing book “Tin Lizzie- The Story of the Fabulous Model T”. Stern had previously written “The Greatest Gift” in 1943, which inspired the Christmas classic film “It’s a Wonderful Life” a few years later.
