This is interesting as it has to be staged for the camera, but why? I wonder if they had heard of wheelie bars back then?

I also wonder if Roy called his car Trigger?

My family lost a Model T to some folks that did a rodeo clown act. They somehow move the rear axle forward enabling the car to do a wheelie when you do a quick start.
My dad bought a new plow and decided that the plow should be put in the shed and the 1923 touring left outside. It was "seen" from the road and an offer was made to Dad. Off went the T to a new life.
This was in the early 50's and I was to young to object.
If Dad had not purchased that darn plow, I would probably be driving that T today.
Dad has passed on, but I still have that plow.:-)
