29 Roadster starting for the first time
Here's a clip of my 29 roadster starting for first time. The engine is a 1940 Mercury flathead that was rebuilt in the 70s with an Isky cam but hadn't been run in over 30 years.
First Start for 1923 Model T barn car
This '23 Model T had not been run in decades. Pulled the engine and gave it a full rebuild, then re- installed and overhauled the chassis with mostly used Model T parts. The car will be kept in the original rusty condition, as pulled from the barn......but she runs now!
Last licensed in 1948, Ford Model T's like this were popular with farmers. This was originally a touring car, but the back seat part of the body and the convertible top was tossed, and a homemade wooden bed put on to carry produce to market.

My Old 1912 W.P. Davis Metalworking Lathe
I bought this monster about three years ago and re-fabbed the motor mount assembly with some real steel and put the old Flat-Belt Lathe back to work for a good two years before selling it off to get something newer.. After selling it I realized that there was not many left from this company and it was extremely RARE.. Still it was nice to save some old American Tooling from the GRAVE.. Enjoy! -Rob

Porter Mufflers on a Flathead Ford
Porter Mufflers on a 1948 Ford Flathead. www.portermufflers.com Nice sound, excellent quality. Made in the USA. The system we had to build was complex because of the air ride system on the car, but it has plenty of ground clearance and sounds great.
