    Probably had a small congregation or maybe it was used for quickie weddings Maybe there is a baptistery inside They could set up a tent and have a revival then batiste those who became saved right on the spot.
    Quite a step up from earlier evangelists who had to travel in a wagon pulled by horses.
    And no I was not poking fun
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    I have to laugh. My son and I want to build a T. I've wanted one since my teens. I used to go to the various T rallies and shows around the southeast US. He wants a roadster with a turtle deck. I want a station car. We may have to build two.

    Unless you are firmly entrenched in having a period correct "T" made from original parts. there are reproduction parts for almost every component of the 't' except for the drive train that is. But if you can find the cowl to use then anything you do to it no matter how radical you go it will still be an authentic model T just highly modified.
    Once a friend of mine and I were going to build a pair of 32 model A boa tailed speedsters he had the cowls and I had 4 of K5 international hoods we were going to use as the boat tails but he passed away long before we got a chance to put our plan to action.

    Oh yeah. I'm well versed in the T world. I'm a member of NTBA. I already have a drivetrain. I'll build a Youngster chassis from plans for my T, as well as the cowl if I can't find a '25-26 sedan or truck cowl. My son wants a widened and lengthened repop roadster body with a turtle deck so he can have some trunk space.

    I used to work at an auto salvage yard that opened in 1917. There is a photograph of the yard from the 1920's hanging on the wall. It shows rows and rows of "T"'s in various states of disrepair.
