Just a quick post to wish you and yours a very happy 4th of July, and to thank you for making Caterpickles a part of your day.

We’re going to take a few days off here at Caterpickles Central to enjoy the summer and maybe learn a few things about vintage cars. ‘Tis the season for vintage cars, after all.

Here’s a photo of a 1926 Ford Model T Speedster modified for racing. We spotted it at a recent Vintage Car Festival in our area. Regular readers will remember that one of Roland T. Byrd’s crew member showed up for a dig in a Model T. I’m going to go out on a limb here and declare that it probably wasn’t a racing model.

1926 Ford Model T Speedster. The little sign on its front told us that the original Model T body had been replaced with a lighter weight body suitable for racing. Also that “a RAJO overhead valve was added for extra power,” which raises the question: “What’s a RAJO overhead valve?” (Photo: Shala Howell)
