This one is local to me. I took these a few years ago at the WOW show in Kansas City.
Eh, just a stock engine and with those new-fangled discs we don't need no front brakes!
That orange T is just bitchin.

The upholstery job in Norm's first version has a very unprofessional look to it. Maybe he did that one himself.
No front brakes and slicks on the back would be pretty scary! I guess he built it to look at, not drive...
No, he built it to drive.
Just not to stop.
@gonzo Great looking car. What are these?
@loudbang I wondered the same thing, they're brackets for the top.
Looking closely they have leather straps wound up on them and they hang down off of the top structure on each side.
I believe they would be used to secure the top bundled up when it was folded down.
According to the old magazine article, it is a Ford T coupe with the top cut off and shortened.

That's exactly what it is, a pre 1926 Ford "T" coupe. It's cool,and I'd like to have it.
Lively Set "T Bucket" which is actually a Dodge I've heard.
It is a Dodge. It’s at the Speedway museum in Nebraska. (Or it was the last time I was there anyway!)
Not all Fords are Fords. The T on the SCTA logo is the S&G '25 Chevy.
I should probably start a build thread.
I like the "tough look" from that angle. Looking forward to a build thread for sure. JW
Please do & link to it here so we can find/follow it.
Currently too lazy to start a build thread, hope it's alright that I keep dropping pictures here. Just about ready to pull it all apart and finish weld everything. I'm planning to run Torque Thrusts in the back and possibly twelve spokes in the front with pie crusts and skinny whites. These wheels are only rollers to move it around the shop.
I follow you on IG however I know many on here don't use it so it's nice to keep the "uninitiated" of us up to date too
Looks titties @gonzo!
This one rules
@HEMI32 's picture. That settles it. I'm getting Torque Thrusts for my T.
What's the name on IG? I'm inkedmonkey96
His or mine?
His is alter_boys_car_club
Mine is nograhamonlyzuul
Just throwing mine up into the mix. Really loving this thread, plans are to put my 348 in it as soon as I finish my A-V8 '30 coupe.
Ken, seriously Jonesing for a street buggy like the orange one in the background! OT, but wouldn't mind seeing more pics of that. Actual Manx or some other body? You can IM me so we don't hijack the thread...
