I don’t know why, but Diamond Ts are inordinately popular around these parts. I also don’t know why I haven’t yet based a Hemmings Six Degrees of Automotive Separation Challenge around the marque yet; we’ve used the big Ts as intermediate connections, so we already know that they’re pretty well connected to the rest of the automotive world.
We’ll rectify that situation this week by making Diamond T the focus of this week’s fox-and-hound-type challenge. No stipulations or exceptions to this week’s challenge, so feel free to use any other carmaker and any connection from any time in your answers.
For newcomers to the game, the fox-and-hound format works like this: The first person to leave a comment here gets to suggest another company to connect to Diamond T in six degrees or less. Whoever successfully answers that challenge then gets to suggest another company to connect to Diamond T, and so forth. As always, a connection consists of one company owning another, merging with another or sharing another’s parts.
Also, thanks goes this week to Pogobill, who provided the above photo of his 1947 Diamond T on his My Hemmings page.
