I like that term too. It fits with how I much I enjoy driving my stuff and not worrying about getting it all perfect before putting it on the road.

That is one good looking T. I would love to see more people go this direction with a Model T build. There are just way too many ugly ones running around and still being built that are straight out of the 80s and 90s style book.

This little guy has three of my favorite things....

A Flathead, Moon Caps and a T Roadster body

How could I not love it.

I think most of the HAMBers would agree with his statement. Those are the types of cars, trucks, or motorbikes that catch my attention.

those pictures make me want to put the V8 flatty in my T.

Always dug that T... Robert Williams used to be in the The Albuquerque Rickshaws, must have been a colorful club, from the stories I've heard!

Plus, there's nothing fun about being afraid to actually use the thing.
