Today is the day to go get our Model T and Model A from spin_out!  It's Lil Stampie's spring break so Grandma Stampie came down Wednesday to spend time with him. That means we have three generations of Stampies to make today's trip.  Here's us loading up all the towing supplies in Grandma's Roadtrek yesterday evening.

And, Yo Momma is part of it all??? 

Though, how cool that Yo Momma shows up with her own tow vehicle!!! 

Yo momma's so phat that when she comes to stay at your house for a week she brings her own tow vehicle and helps you pick up two classic cars!

When I see Stampie without a beard I always worry that he's running for political office or something equally nefarious. 

As someone who still scans for Model A's every now and again, I'm looking forward to seeing how this goes.

I’ve watched enough Goodwood Members Meeting vids to be simultaneously jealous, excited and anxious to see where this goes

I thought I had dibs on T. laugh I did speak briefly to stampie at the yard sale, and said when he was finished with the t I would be interested. Looks like a lot of fun on a trailer.

Hopefully you have plenty of sell off.  Best wishes on the projects.  

I do want to see lil stampie dominating at the Valve Cover Races this year.  This year’s trophy is big.

I want to thank Mark for letting me have these two cars. He's been a wonderful caretaker of them and for him to let me continue that is a honor. Is been great talking with him these months and learning the history of the cars especially the T.

I'm still formulating plans for both of them but for those wanting the T don't hold your breath. Every time I made a turn yesterday I looked back and said "Man I love that T!"  In my sales pitch to Mark I promised to run it in the Challenge and getting it ready is the main focus of Team Stampie right now.  

 

While I'm in love with the T itself it's different with the A. I'm in love with what I want to make the A into. I've always wanted a traditional hotrod. That means American OHV pushrod V8. I don't like cookie cutter hot rods so SBC is out.  I do have a 70 Cadillac 472 looking for a home and I have a line on a Ford truck with a 390FE engine also. I'll do some pondering on this.

We couldn't pick up all the extras yesterday so we're heading back this morning to grab the rest plus some free scrap that Danny is giving us.

Push rod V8s... but unique? I would vote for one of the early small domestic. 215 buick or a 221 Windsor and go for a "period correct" look but built for Revvvvvvvs. 

That T looks sweet!

Ran back down this morning and picked up the rest. Amazing the amount of shares. Other than a M20 engine/trans combo hidden in there this is it.

Danny gave me a bunch of scrap that his neighbor was going to throw away. Included in that was some bearings that fit perfectly with my idea for a homemade shifter. Hope to drop the T later this coming week and get started on it.
