That is one of two 'K's that Rob owns. The gentleman that restored that car for Rob is a man named Dean Yoder who owns Model-Ts that will run over 50 MPH and he probably averages driving over 25,000 miles a year. I am facebook friends with Dean, and he will often write of his daily travels in his Model-T where he drove over 300 miles in a day with speeds as fast as hi-50s mph!

That's very brave, considering I've only pushed my '28 to 50 mph and got too nervous when I thought about having to get her to a safe stop..... very Brave!!

I don't know if it is as much considered brave, or whether it is confidence. If you have a vehicle that you have first-hand knowledge of ALL mechanical part's condition, I think that influences the fear factor. On the other hand, 'fear' is often what keeps us safe!
