Wayne,,,,,,, Wasn't that you riding in the front passenger seat of the last model "T" they showed riding down the road with the complete family in the back seat? I stopped the film and zoomed in and I would swear that was you. I knew you was old but .....WOW... lol .......... just curious my bro. (ping, been a while and I needed to do that to stay in practice)

Great Video .....

I am so very proud to be a tiny, worthless, grain of sand in an ocean of Veteran heros.
God bless our vets......

No Seajay, it wasn't me. If it had of been me, I would have just held up my hands and parted the water when they came across the river bed.

And for the rest of you, I know I'm older than dirt!!!!

Yup, really remember seeing restored Model T's. I remember there was one model that you had to go in reverse (back up) to get up a steep grade. Ah, childhood memories.....

Thanks Wayne ! .......... I never realized they hand sanded the spokes after assembly. That might account for the slight wobble I feel when cruzin along between 12 and 14 MPH.

thats because the fuel tank was the cowl and gravity fed so a steep climb would starve the engine,

Thanks Wayne,
Being older than dirt, beats not being older than dirt. At least our aches and pains remind us that we are alive.
