I found the above photo in my humble archives and figured it was interesting enough to post. I’m willing to bet that many of you folks in the “Model-T” forum are way more knowledgeable about this photo than I am, but I believe this is a shot of Ford’s “Rolling Road.” Essentially, this was the last stage of the mechanical line and where the drivetrain went through the first of many tests.
Roll that sucker in, strap is down (or maybe not), and then give that little banger hell. Note the driver sitting on the gas tank – his foot appears to be all in. I assume the rest of the fellas are performing quality control with their ears.
