Petr’s Ford Model T in Czech Republic

Here’s Petr’s Model T

I do own 1920 Model T, imported from USA to Czech Republic and Iam having quite a problems setting the carb correctly

attaching couple of photos as you probably never seen some Czech Republic Model T, right? 🙂

I am cleaning the gas tank and pipes and carb as it seems that I have some dirt there as my car wasn’t started till like 5-6turns from bottom (and of course then it was very very rich)

also the starter spring cracked in half yesterday so starting is a bit more complicated again



My 1925 Ford Model T at Mid Coast Ford Motorfest 2015

So I took my darling Shae to this years Mid Coast Ford Motorfest in Tuncurry.

The weather was fantastic, and I would estimate some 150 cars turned up for the event.

In attendance from Taree Historic Motor Club were…

  • Mitch Taylor and Shae with the 1925 Ford Model T
  • Greg Lee with his 1913 Rover Torpedo
  • Allan Walters with his 1929 Chrysler 75
  • Lindsay & Robyn Higson with their 1967 Bedford truck
  • Ray Lapham and his 1982 Rolls Royce Silver Spirit
  • Brian Kelleher with his Morris fire truck

If i’ve forgotten anyone, I’m sure I will be fined! 🙂

Here’s some pics of my T…



My Model T at Weekend on Wheels 2015 – Taree NSW

Weekend on Wheels 2015, Sunday 31st May.

A very wet day indeed! The organizers were kind enough to have the Model T and the Rover undercover in the pavilion, so our cars didn’t get drenched!

I’d say there were about 50 cars in total turned up this year – including Fatty the Ratrod… compared to well over 200 last year.

In spite of the rain, still an enjoyable day. Shae and I enjoyed a wood-fired pizza for lunch.

In attendance from Taree Historic Motor Club, we had…

  • Greg Lee was greedy and brought 3 cars along! These were the 1913 Rover Torpedo, 1962 Holden EJ and 1978 Datsun 120Y
  • Mitch Taylor and Shae with the 1925 Ford Model T
  • Allan Walters with his  1929 Chrysler 75
  • There was also the green Austin A35 whose owner’s name eludes me….

Video pending…

 

 


I sure wish I had my speedster back…

Jim Klous shared this on the Model T Enthusiasts Group on Facebook…

“I sure wish I had my speedster back… My dad and I built it in 1965 and drove it until 1968 when I went into the Navy. It was stored at my dad’s house until 1976. This photo was taken in 1976 at Reedley Jr. College in Reedley, California. They were having a Vintage Vehicle Day and bicentennial celebration. The gentleman cranking is one of the instructors, and the other gentleman and I went to surrounding towns with a P A system and advertised the event. This had a 1921 engine, 26-7 transmission, Ruxtell rearend, and wheels.”




Nathan & Diana’s Wedding – April 11th, 2015, with my 1925 Ford Model T

Quite a story behind this one, Diana, the Bride found out less than a week before her wedding that both her wedding cars were not drivable, one had brake failure, the other one experiencing clutch problems… 

Just two days before the wedding, she contacts Taree Historic Motor Club, and I was privileged to drive Diana to her wedding in my 1925 Ford Model T, congratulations Diana and Nathan
