Model T Anniversary

Just in case anyone is interested, thought I'd throw it out here that today is the 99th anniversary of the Model T's release onto the market. Pretty big day for the Ford Motor Co back in 1908 eh.

If they were smart they would build a few limited edition ones for the 100th. Not street legal of course. Ever drive one? Neat car, especially the pedals.

Yeah I have driven one, they are neat. Technically they could make them street legal if it was a limited production run. I forget the exact number, but if under X number of units are made, you are exempt from safety laws. Much like how Shelby American can still build and sell new Cobras.

I loved that Model T article a few weeks back that was great. I wonder what Mr. Ford would say about his company now? I don't mean that in a bad way, I really wonder what he would think about the cars that ford is producing and the technology.

^ yeah I wonder what Mr. Ford would think of how much they sell his cars for nowadays, seeing as the first T sold from 800 to 1000

My grandfather had an olive green model-A. I used to get inside of it in their garage and play with all the levers and pedals. The thing was near perfect condition for its age.

After he passed away my father and his two brothers went to visit my grandmother and divy out his stuff. A new battery, some replacement hoses and a small fire later it was up and running... then driven on to a trailer and sold to a man in Oklahoma City.

This was while I was in 4-5 grade so I never even came close to getting to drive it.
