Regional Random Luck

I went to an auction last Saturday for a guy who was reducing his car collection and pallet after pallet of misc parts and projects, mostly Model T Ford. I have thought for a while that having a T would be nice. SO---I went with almost no money just to see what things were going for. Found a T that had been made into a speedster, that was covered with trash kind of stuck in a dark recess of the huge barn the auction was being held in. Looking under the junk it seemed pretty good. Well I brought it home for $350 bucks. After I got all the trash off of it and power washed it I started feeling pretty good. Brand new tires,four extra running boards,What I could see of the head and intake gaskets looked new. Changed the oil, put in new plugs, cleaned up the wiring, put fuel in the tank and it started on 1/4 turn of the crank. Runs like a top! I definetly had some Rockies Regional Random Luck

Wow, congrats what a neat find. You have the makings of Rat-T for sure or better if you want to spend the time.

That is a great story. Some times you run into things like that. I would love to see it some day. A T speedster sound neato' (technical term). We did a nice A when I was a kid and that car was a blast.

See you at the Museum.

Don't worry Dave, Marc will probably get lost on his way to give you a beatdown.

Neat product.. probably not the right solution for any close up work.
I think the key is to move it back and zoom in a little. I wonder how smooth the panning is?
