November 17th – day 149

Saturday 17 November

 

After a good night in our ‘private’ cottage, Dirk services the Model T. He can use the car lever again.

 

After the service, we film the cars of Kevin, he tells a lot about them.

 

He started building the 1911 runabout when he bought the headlights in a museum that closed. After that he builds the car ‘around’ it.

 

 

To import the parts from America is a very expensive job. 50% invoice Tax. Kevin is very handy and has many tools, he builds lots of parts by himself. He does this also for other people in the country. He is now building 3 Model T radiators.

 

 

He can talk for hours about cars.

 

 

At 12.00 we leave after a goodbye picture.

Inge doesn’t like dogs very much, but these ones are her friends.
