    Does anyone have a husband who loves old cars....Specifically Model T's ??? One must have a hobby as well when he goes to the garage! Love to talk to you about our common ground...Joyce

    My husband has a 1953 Ford built on a 1979 Ford Bronco 4 x 4 chassis. He tinkers in the shop on a lot of things not so much cars or trucks. He built cabinets and shelves for my sewing room as well as my cutting table.

    My husband was a lover of old cars I still have his 1965 Chevelle convertable two gas pumps etc all of it is up for sale. Every time the car needs something done I have to find someone to work on it (I finaly found a local garage that loves old cars).

    My sweetheart doesn't have a model T exactly, he has a T-bucket, as well as a 63' spilt rear window Corvette, a 95' Corvette, and a 1950 somethng Nomad, the rare one....He needs more 'tinkering ' time.

    hubby has a 65 corvette sting ray, I have a 67 pontiac firebird 400 convertible (my avatar) and a 57 Metropolitan. We also have 3 more Metropolitans which are for sale.

    Son has a 58 pontiac chieftain, 70 buick skylark, 84 oldsmobilie toronado and a "brand new" 58 Metropolitan convertible.

    we "like" our old cars.

    My hubby has a 60 VW Singlecab, 67 VW Fastback (in piece's in the backyard, that was suppose to be for our DD), VW Dune Buggie (not sure of the year). His dream is to get a Model T. And our DS has a VW Thing (again, not sure of the year) that he is restoring into a WWII vehicle, and is also in pieces in my backyard.

    The picture of the Singlecab is at a VW Carshow and they had some girls taking pictures with some of the cars. It's all logo'd up with my DH shop.

    My DH has a 71 Covette Stingray..he bought it as a graduation gift to himself in 72. It only has 57,000 original miles on it.
    I always wanted a yellow VW bug. One year for Christmas..there was one sitting in our driveway. Slowly I have been replacing things on it. One day she will be spanking new.

    Hubby has a 69 red Corvette Stingray, two topper, . It just sits in the garage all the time. He keeps saying he will sell it for the right price, but he doesn't advertise it for sell,, and I don't think he knows what he thinks is the riiht price,LOL Both of us are getting too old, too fat, and too stiff to get in and out of it.LOL
