Re: Make a model T a little more safe

My Model Ts are all open cars. If you are in an accident while traveling at any speed over 30 MPH, you can kiss your ass good bye, whether it's an open car or a closed car and whether or not you are...

Re: Model T as a daily driver

I tour with my 1909 and 1927 Model T's. On average we cover over 100 miles in a day. If you keep checking the oil, coolant, tire pressure and gas supply they are as reliable as a Model A, just not as...
