    If anybody is here, Merry Christmas. I'm in western NC with a 1921 Touring. Nice to find another model T forum. I'll check back to see if anyone else shows up.

          This pic was taken a couple of weeks ago. We have a hood, not on when the pic was taken. The car is a 1921. The engine and transmission had been rebuilt when we bought the car, but had not been cranked yet. We have got it running and driven it. Both front fenders and the right rear are new, as are the splash shields. I rebuilt the rearend and driveshaft myself. The tires are new Lincoln Highway tires. The seat springs are new and the bottoms have been covered. We have the covers for the seat backs, but have not gotten them installed yet. We also have a new top for it but just recently found the complete top bow set, so the top has not been installed yet. The front axle and steering linkages are rebuilt so the car drives great. I installed accessory, lined brake shoes. The battery and cables are new. We drove the car for the first time on October 14, 2017.

            Thom I would have to look I have a 1919 I did not think the oil lamps were still on in 1921, altho there were bigger changes in 23. Looks like a nice original car.

          Great looking car Thom. Looks like it wants to be out of the garage and running around swiftly.

            Nice T you have.
            What is the back story or history of your ownership?

              I have been told that the car probably came from the factory without the starter, generator, and battery, which it now has, thankfully, because cars equipped with those would not have come with kerosene lamps. The starter, generator, and battery were probably added, either by the dealer when the car was new, or by a previous owner. Also, if the car had the electrics originally it would have had demountable wheels/rims. That doesn't make a lot of sense, but that's what I've heard. I suppose the kerosene lamps could have been added.
              My wife and I decided, a couple of years ago, that we would like to have an old, original car. We have had modified cars for 40 years but it's time to slow down. We found the '21 Touring last year, for sale in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee at the Shades of the Past rod run.
              The body is unbelievably solid. All the expensive stuff was already done on the car. I've seen rebuilt engines, which the car had, sell for more than we paid for the car. All that the car needs is seat backs and top installed. We have everything to do the jobs. I'm trying to get up the courage to jump in and get-er-done.

                Oh yeah, one more thing the car needs... I plan to remove the paint from the spokes in the wheels and clear-coat them.

                  I have been lurking on the Model A forum and I am impressed with the way the members treat each other. I own two Ts and hope this T forum picks up. I have been a member of the MTFCA and its forum for some time. If any of you frequent that forum you will notice they are having some problems. Hoping I am welcome here

                  I joined up over on the **** **** and figured I'd join in here too. I inherited my grandfathers Model A, it was his first car, he bought it in 1957 and restored it about 16 years ago. He taught me a lot about it but it seems there is always more to learn about these awesome cars, look forward to learning!

                  by That80sGuy
                  Greetings!! I am new the process of finalizing the purchase of a 1926 Model T Touring. I have loved these cars all my life and now I am in a position to own one and am pretty excited! Currently I'm reading all the info I can get on care and maintenance as well as places to get parts and repair advice. The car I'm looking at is 100% complete but has not been cranked or driven in about 5yrs....

                  Hey all, just joined. New to Model A's. Don't currently have one. Trying to get ahead, be able to have one. Hard to do. Life! The wife and I are currently taking care of my mother. She was diagnosed with Alzheimers. What's the values of Model A's? Nothing rare, something like a tudor sedan. Like muscle cars too, but those are crazy high!!!!
