My dark, knuckle dragging, side.

101 Fun Run SoCal T's Escondido and Encinatis, CA

Weather was typical Med Coast, low 70 to low 80's with morning marine layer. Big difference from the humidity of the Bash in Arkansas. If I had to live in a city, it would be San Diego. Bill and Linda (hope I got the names correct) are a very delightful couple that truly enjoys their T. And the T has the small displacement early 40 hp Ford flathead and Toyota 5 speed stick that he milled an alunimun bell housing to make the mate. If I remember what Bill told me, it has a 3 1/2" stroke but a displacement of around 136 cid. I envision little silver dollar sized pistons. They take many long trips in the T, towing a little trailer with tent, chairs, ice chest, sleeping bags and cooking utinsels and propane. They ARE the T couple.

Nasboss's totally cool ride.............



My ride.......

I've always been a big fan of the 'fad' T. Thanks for sharing those pics.

That black 26-27 roadster is perfect. I've had fiberglass T buckets and they don't excite me like they did before I owned one.
I think you might be talking about a V8-60, that was the small flathead. There wasn't a 40 horse, model A 4 bangers did about 40ish though.

You are correct and Jeff (nasboss) that owns the black '27 is the most understated guy I've met at hot rod gatherings. He never blows his own horn, never posted an image larger than his avatar image of that truly fine ride he crafted, and quiet and modest in person. He has been a regular on my forum for awhile and I exposed him for the really decent guy and master fabricator that he is on that forum. If a guy could blush on a forum. I think after all my praise, nasboss just might of.

That "Carmel Valley" seaside pic would make a great postcard or magazine cover. Of course you'd have to "photoshop" out the pickup truck full of garbage bags ...
