    My T roadster hit the ground Sunday at 6 PM for the first tme in a month.
    The main task was to put a clutch pedal and a T-5 in her, but while the engine was out, it seemed like a good time to scuff it up and shoot some shiny paint.
    Whadda ya think? look OK?
    Supposed to go to 52* today, if it gets over 40. we'll go for a ride.

    I never really liked Ts.. t-buckets or anything similar, but yours sure does look nice. I think the hood helps a lot. Seriously, nice car, guess I'll have to take back all those things I said about Ts haha.

    Thanks, Revhead. I don't like the modern versions of T's either, but this one being a 90 inch wheelbase, IS different. And it's still basic. Nothing it doesn't need to go down the road.

    Haven't had a chance to get on a scale yet, but it ain't heavy. And the T-5 is lighter than the TH-350 that came out:)

    Thanks Al, Pm me and I'll give you my address and Cell #

    And It got to 60* this afternoon and the first cruise on the concrete sea went real well. All hot rods should have a clutch pedal:D

    Looks very KQQL.........better than the primer, all the red paint needs is a few nicks from use!

    It looks like the body is sitting on top of the frame.........that and the old Ford wire wheels give it that old time look. Very nice.

    We were on the scales at a salvage yard and came in at 1720 lbs with a little gas and no driver.

    Just changed the temp gauge, put a plug where the gas gauge was, cause there is no sender and I have a stick under the seat. And changed the speedo to a 80 mph one.

    Beatiful paint and striping. Real "Lakes" style. I bet you're lovin' that 5 gear in that lightweight hot rod. Manual transmissions RULE.
