1926 Model T Buckster

Post by Duck »

I have an affinity for wood paneled cars of yesteryear. This one was a fine example of quality craftsmanship.

Nicely done Duck. The image portrays the age of the vehicle well. What a job it must be to maintain these old Beauties.

Nice Duck. I could just see me buying some garlic and hot peppers off that tailgate. :)

Nice shot Duck. I think I've only seen one of the wood panel ones at the car shows around here over the years.

These are definitely a labor of love. My ex son-in-law and his family are big into Model T's and the work and expense that goes into them is incredible. Considering that parts are no longer available except for a few who custom make them. And that gets expensive.

You can try, but they were all fake. :D
But I get your meaning. I'm an immigrant from Nicaragua and I remember vendors coming door to door selling produce from baskets and carts. This one probably saw similar service back in its day. Too bad personal service like that is a thing of the past.

Unfortunately woodies are very rare due to the inherent issues of rot, fire and everything else that affects wood. This was a full restoration (according to the owner) based on original, but slightly modified, plans. I believe the current owner bought it restored.

Duck, I don't remember produce coming around, but I remember the knife sharpening guy. A real old truck, probably 1930s or 40s and he had a bell he would clang, something like the bell in a boxing ring.

The door to door vendors were in Nicaragua. No such service here in the states.
