Our Chitty Bang Bang in Wilmington De - a 1926 Model T hand made to be our Chitty

After finding a 1926 T in a junk yard and My daughter thinking I had brought Home the real - Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Atfer several weeks of singing and picking flowers for this old wreck I began to make the Magic of childhood and build our very own chitty for her.  All hand made on an english wheel and using 1926 T runing gear and frame.  The wooden Spoke wheel make it work. Chitty has beenin many shows and palys theme music as the wings open for a short flight.  Butch PAtrick, and Geoarge Barris both came to see this great car and the workman ship we did in our little farm shop for a 3 year old little girl, that belived that if you belive hard enough dreams can come true!

It was alot of fun but hit allot of bumps in the road. The block was split from freezing and the oil  was like brown paint.  With a lot of searching we gotthe block and the engine to fire. She runs well on the old woven band design that Henry Ford built - two speed trans - no clutch.  only 20 horse power but what a fun ride.  She is great to take out for Ice cream!  Thanks!

It's very rewarding when your work is admired, and I'm sure on the ice cream runs you are! Nice job!
