we gotta get that thing running soon, well after the White is done anyway.
good to see such a well done T,
I went on an all pre 28 endurance run with my budy furbiscuit.
there are some amazing T speedsters.
I caught the bug along with my girl at the time, and she bought this
too bad she moved on, so now it will have to be some one elses.
riding in that T speedster definitely was the trip of a lifetime.
and you did a hell of a good job on your car.
I'm impressed. That car is "the Bee's knees". I like everything about it.
I'm in So. Oregon, Ashland. If you'r ever passin' through, stop by.
Here's some more pics to help.
I'm working on a '23 T roadster, pics in my profile thing.
redbeard- neat to see that you still have that wooden body.
Just how heavy IS that thing?
Very nice ride! So, are you a member of the 4 bangers club? Do you hang out with Jeff, Roger, Mike, Phil and the other guys in North Portland? If not, look up the Arbor Lodge Garage at 6454 N Greeley Ave. Jeff runs it, and has mucho connections for vintage stuff in Ptown.
the motor in the 36 is a 5.7 TPI.
The A I have about 70% of it but its a AA truck, so i dont plan on using the frame or rearend as they are HUGE, i want to track down a stock A rolling passenger car chassis and go from there.
thanks for the advice MrmodelT. ill definatly look into doing something like that if possible...just wouldnt want to make so severe modifications that it would be a real pain to upgrade later... something to definatly think about though, thanks.
funny you should mention Jeff and the boys at Arbor Lodge. I actually live in the area and have stopped in to chat with the crew a few times. I was actually driving by (in the roadster) and Jeff flagged me down. Neat guys. I'm not a member of the 4-Barrels yet but I plan to soon. I take it your local too?
Winfield head, Scintilla maggy, Burns downdraft intake, twin 97s...quite the laundry list of goodies.
fortunately As are easy to come by. Usually you can find a good, complete sometimes running A chassis for next to nothing. Found one just like that in the local classifieds for 1,000.... running
you otta build that thing, gotta real nice start there. you could have allot o' fun with that thing.
Watch out for Phil H. in the 4 barrels club he hates `Ts`, probably will not let you join.
Funny you mention that too, I talked to Phill at one of the shows I went to (his '32 B was right next to my T and he seemed to really like it and wanted me to join up...as did all the other guys.
Pete Daun made a buck then a mold and made that body himself.laid up in fiberglass but i believe the mold got destroyed in the release process.
Maybe he is softening in his old age that is good to hear.
Thanks for the info and welcome to the HAMB!
Would Mr. Daun happen to have (paper/cardboard) patterns of the buck he built that he would would be willing to "share"???
This tread rules! Powerwagon, very nice!
Vanhorton, you poor bastards(there is two of them)... I have a couple of 34 axles up in the loft, Uncle Mel will share.
I was waiting till you got to the suspension... but Thanksgiving is around the corner.
Whoa, that is awesome! Totally cool car. Thank you for sharing.
hahaaa dude your the man! holy shit! haha thanks dude!
Just noticed this thread -- VERY nice T!
..The best thing is its oddly sunny and some what warm up here this weekend, so needless to say, I'm ganna let her out for a bit I hate not being able to drive it and usally I can't during the winter months (no top....yet) so every chance I get , she is on the road.
..Here is another one for all you H.A.M.B.ers out there.
Serveral of had asked how i got into hod rodding. As a posted previously it was really because of my Grandfather Thor Sanden.
Here is the car that got me into rods...
After my next T, I plan to duplicate this car to the last detail.
lets try that again
...3rd times the charm
Born and raised in North Portland (3rd generation). Jeff is my uncle. Phil H (or fairly honest Phil as his friends call him) and Mike (aka hot rod Mike) I met last summer when I was up there visiting family and collecting parts for my '27 project. They've got a shop in St Johns. Did the Beach's cruise once last summer as well. Fun times. I'm in Arizona now, but trying to find my way back to NoPo.
Here's a pic of one of Jeff's rides, one of Roger's rides, and one of Mike's rides.
What kind of ideas do you have for a top?
That is almost exactly what I had in mind! looks good too. Who's car is that? do you have any more pix of it?
I managed to dig one up i saved a while ago... i think it runs outa the northwest.. maybe up near you actually.
