Re: Thanksgiving week T project work...

We are getting snow. Doesn’t happen very often here any more so I took the T out for a while. The windshield defroster isn’t working too good and it is a little cold but a nice ride anyway.

Yep. Raining today and tomorrow. Calling for a little snow but I doubt it. Being an open car I guess a coat is in order.

Re: Keeping a Model T running

Re: Has this ever happened to you?

She doesn’t LET him see his old friends? Did he marry his mom? Yeah I have seen this before but I sure don’t understand it. Time for him to put on his big boy pants.
