    We saw your ambulance at the convention last month, the pictures here just don't do it justice, you did a great job with it. I have little doubt it's nicer than it was when it left the factory.

    Here are some pictures we took:

    Don't know how I missed this thread earlier. Every award is well-deserved.

    Thank you all for the kind words about my WW1 Ambulance. clinto thanks for posting the pictures. I like your choice of detail. Before the show I did a detailed inspection of the engine and it's starting to get very tired. I am still running on an engine that had not been run for 70 years until I found the vehicle behind a barn in a model t graveyard in Iola Kansas. It's starting to smoke and the valve adjusters are dished so accurate adjustment is impossible. The old Tin Lizzy will need an over haul soon.

    Yeah Steve. I thought I was doing pretty good with 70 years between overhauls. Any way. The Tin Lizzy still runs pretty decent. I think this winter I might pull the engine and get some work done on it.

    It has been awhile since I have posted here. I have been very busy with a couple of restorations and an Engine Overhaul on my WW1 ambulance.
    So to make it up to all of you....here is the short 2 minute movie I made about My M1917 Ford ambulance.



    Also if you want to see some of my restoration work, go to my website http://www.ww1history.com/
    My website is the WW1 Preservation Collection, and you should check out the WW1 machine Gun Cart restoration I did.

    Also if you are in the Wichita Kansas area on June 9th or 10th 2017, I will be displaying the WW1 Ambulance at the Black Top Nationals Car show.

    Fantastic restoration job fellas! Up here, north of the border, some guys out west in Alberta are restoring a 1912 WW1 Cadillac field ambulance. This particular vehicle has, luckily, been in storage since 1949 so to start with is in remarkable condition.
