    I agree. I really prefer the As or deuces, but this one is just right. Von Franco's '26 T roadster that was based on the Anderegg T (it's in a TRJ) is another that is awesome.

    "Pretty damn affordable".... I agree!

    I saw that car in the classifieds a week or two ago and thought it seemed like a great deal. What a cool little car that I'm sure you could put a ton of miles on and have fun while doing it!

    I have seen this car in person and it is everything and more. I have thought about forking over the money to take it home since it's only like 15 minutes away. If you like the work of the man that built this car (Sean) you should definitely check out his Model A sedan that is located on Sinticket's bio.

    That one caught my eye as well. But then I like slinky model Ts. If someone is looking for a good little hot rod it doesn't look like you could go far wrong with that one.

    Well, as of right now I should have this car at my house and in my possession on Saturday morning. I have talked to Sinticket agreed on the price and got the wife's "ok" so all that is left to do is get the money together and pay Dustin. Damn, I'm excited! Finally something that runs!

    Sitting in it, not on it, always mattered to me in a T.

    I'd love to see any interior shots, the outside certainly looks sweet!

    Thank you. I am just trying to do my part and keep them in the HAMB family!:D:D I'm about as excited as a Little Girl waiting to meet Hanna Montana! That's a sad analogy, but you get the point.

    Thanks alot guys! I just got to my computer and pulled up the HAMB and saw this....WOW what an honor! When I read this I kindof got a tear in my eye. I really appreciate it! SEAN would be so proud to hear the compliments you guys are giving. SEAN is gone but will never be forgotten! JefferyJames and I have agreed on a price and Saturday morning the deal should be sealed. He will be a happy camper, im sure.

    SEAN's last car (my 31) is to be in STREET RODDER next month. Check out the craftsmanship when the issues comes out. He was a hell of a builder, a hell of a person, and a hell of of a friend. I miss him every day!

    Again, thanks guys!

    That sure is a delicious "early 6o's" T and at $15K (even with the exchange rate and shipping) would be a bargain in Oz.

    I to spotted that nifty little T in the classifieds. I usually just glance and move on but this one made me stop and dream. This is , in my opinion, a real value, something that's not going to depreciate and possibly appreciate over time. The key is construction and this one has it in spades. You can see quality in thought and execution everywhere you look. Kudos to the builder, he put a nice one together.

    Sounds like he was a heck of a good friend.

    A very nice car at a very reasonable price! I agree with the "sit in it not on it".

  23. Good job, mang!!
    Youll enjoy the hell out of it. We'll cruise together soon!

    JJ...congrats on the score...that is a beautiful little T...I cringed when I read the reasons for it being for sale but am glad that you are keeping it in the HAMB family and keeping it local in NC...I am looking you up as soon as I get back there, hopefully around the end of February, if I was getting back there sooner I would have tried to score that one too....good for you man...enjoy the hell out of it and I can't wait to see it in person.

    That is just so beautiful. I especially love the dashboard pinstriping and the cloth glove pouches. Just awesome.
