That is just too cool MNFATS........I grew up in Minnesota and my mother was raised in rural South Dakota. She told me about mail being delivered during the winter in Model T's and A's. Never said anything about one with tracks, but the roads in the '20's and '30's had to be terrible in rural areas.
Nice work!

Thank you Walt, it's not back in the car yet. I'm doing some work on the frame and we hope within the next two weeks we will be putting it all back together again. The engine internally is stock, when I first got the car I was amazed at how well she ran. So, I decided to just pretty her up a little. The head is a super winfield, intake thomas and I'm going to try a wico mag in her. I should know what I have by April May. Thanks again for the compliment on the little banger.

I would love to post a couple of pictures of the front end, but the machine is at my cabin about 200 miles away. I won't be heading that way soon as we are also going to get several inches of white stuff this weekend according to the weatherman. I also need to share a photo or two showing it with the skis in place.

Here's my new one........the engine ready to go back into my '40 coupe. Thanks to everyone on the Barn for sharing their knowledge, which enabled me to complete this project. Two of Uncle Max's 97's to top it off, as well.
