I uploaded some films to my site a bit ago, the first film is pertaining to the Model A, but has some T stuff too.

The second film is a brake testing campaign in the 1920s.

The third is an 'old car parade' in Detroit around 1925. Lots of T's. Wonder where the "Spirit of St. Vitus" is today? Note that a "Zep Olds" won a trophy with the oldest car- a Curved Dash Olds. Wonder if he was related to Ransom Olds?

Thanks for posting ;)
Oldest car in daily use from the old car parade - a 1914 Packard coupe? Just 11 years old :0

Very fun. For the time, they don't seem all that old. Lucky us to still have some of them around today.

How do you do the wobbly wheel thing?

I'd think just mounting the hubs off center would do the bronco bull effect.

I would say the last film is later than 1925. The Spirit of St. Vitus is probably a play on the Spirit of St. Louis which would make the film from 1927 or later.

Erik-

I had not thought of that! I'd bet a cup of coffee you're right. I pretty much had to take a guess as to the date when I uploaded it.
