    Ford Model "T"  My way !

    I had some left over parts from another build so I have decided that now would be a good time to use them.This 4 seat Ford Model T is one of my own design.The Ford motor company back in those days sold chassis only which left the customer lots of opportunity to design the body that they wanted.In keeping with my basic philosophy of "did it actually happen? I don't know,could it have happened ? by all means."This is my interpretation of what might have been.

    That's a great concept you've put forth. You hardly see anything like that modeled. The last time I saw anything like that was at the Medical museum at Fort Sam Houston. They had a full size one in the WWI section. Can you believe that's a 100 year old car? Great job, John. I can't wait to see the finished product. With what I've seen you do with dios, I'm sure this one will turn out to be a real masterpiece.

    The mother-in-law, up until the 40's, must have been really hated by car designers.

    That scene is beautiful, John. I expect some old lady to come out of the door with wet laundry to hang.
