Starting To Worry...

...just a little bit...but what can I say?  I've always liked vintage things.  That's yours truly in a Gent's Straw Boater hat with my chrononaut sunglasses, canvas straps ("suspenders") and pants, holding a fashionable cane...all furnished by Historical Emporium  You need to check them out; very cool site.

The 1923 Model T, white shirt, black bow tie and hush puppies provided by me.  Don't you just love that Model T?  So cool.

Another view:

The point of this photo shoot is to submit pics to Historical Emporium for their customer photo contest...winner gets $200.  I'll let you know how I do.

The point of buying all this stuff is to be attired in period correct clothing for this year's Metro Cruise, August 26th and 27th.  The baby blue Model T with custom wood cab and pickup bed is unmistakable; the guy driving it should at least look like he belongs there.

Next year I hope to be driving a 1931 Model A Roadster in the Metro Cruise...gotta start saving my pennies.

Here are a couple of views from where I sit, enjoying a cigar:

this is a closeup of the previous pic to show the little photo bomber enjoying peanuts on the deck steps...
The July / August edition of Vintage Ford magazine has been delivered to almost 40,000 members now, and my Papa's Model T ad on page 55 looks good.

top right...c'mon, you know you want one...
So far no results from the ad, but it's early.  I'm using this as a bellwether: if I can't sell a book involving a Model T to a group of people who pay annual dues to be members of a club devoted to Model T's, that will be a clue.

I'll continue writing of course; I enjoy it, but all the additional work that goes into preparing a manuscript for publication is up for evaluation at this point.

Time, as they say, will indeed tell the tale.

It's a cloudy Sunday morning, but I'm going to get outside and enjoy it.

Later, mcm fans...
