Dude And His T
Took this about a week ago on a walk around the neighborhood just at dusk. This guy was stopped and was drawing quite a crowd of appreciative onlookers. This is his street Model T. He was in absolute heaven answering questions and showing everyone all his work that kept this thing sputtering and running. The driver said it would ride 70mph on the freeway from all his substitutions. He cranked it for us several times, explaining how he keeps from breaking his thumb; he showed off his dash and controls; he demonstrated proper Model T shifting; he let a little girl sit in the driver's seat and blow the horn. Hugh and I had great fun talking to him and sharing enthusiasm for his ride. When he drove away he left a fair sized puddle of oil near the curb. What fun!
