It was a pretty day in Texas---the snow held off for long enough for this young couple to tie the knot and be driven away in Woodrow, our '15 T. If you look closely you will notice the bride is bare foot--we do that here.
Well, I didn't do a very good job in sizing the pictures---made them too small to see. Maybe better next time. But it was a really nice day.
John, If you want, email the photos to me full size and i will re size them for the forum in large format.
The photos look too good to be so small.
Let's try this again.
Love this picture!
One more time showing the T under a big Live Oak tree waiting for the bride and groom
And now, here we go again. I might finally figure out how to show them all in one post, but like my son-in-law told me, "I may be slow but I make a lot of mistakes." The church were the ceremony took place. We were in East Texas about 60 miles north east of Houston.
Does the groom know how to drive it?
Great photos. Barefoot brides; intriguing and yet sensible idea.
Make me thinking,
My daughter's wedding is next summer. Don't think my future son in law can drive the T. I think I will drive them where they want to go that day.Grin....
Neil, thanks for the offer to re-size the pictures. I hope to eventually figure out how to post more than one photo at a time, still workin' on that. No, the groom has no clue how to drive a Model T. Matter of fact, he had never even seen one until yesterday. I drove the newly married couple away as a favor to the groom's sister, a long time friend. Before it was time to leave the wedding I asked the groom if he wanted to practice cranking the car since I expected him to perform that duty when we were ready to leave. He told me that his new bride was stronger than he was so let her do that. Well, she couldn't pull the crank either so I took care of that duty. What a fun day it was--loved it---and a very nice young couple as well.
John, I just repeat the "Upload Attachment" procedure to add more pictures. Just be sure they are resized.
Great looking '15 John.
As I say above, what a fun day it was and what fun it is to drive a Model T. I was talkin' to a buddy the other day and he was telling me how he wanted to add stuff to his '14 so it would go faster and keep up with the Model T tours. Well, I guess that's fine, however when the car goes faster then the fun of driving a T is over so much sooner. The main reason I enjoy driving a Model T is the "fun of driving a Model T". Hey, what's the hurry anyway? You spend more money to get there sooner---then what? One day I clocked the '15 at 39.8 with a GPS---was just curious. It would have gone a bit faster but what would have been the purpose in that? I really do enjoy 25 mph or so. To me that's a nice comfortable speed and I get to enjoy it longer.
It looks like everyone in the photos was happy. Great looking T and hopefully it brought up some questions among some of the guests about what the car was etc.
Hap l9l5 cut off
Well, Hap, regarding questions by the wedding guests---one lady there asked me if I was the original owner. I told her the car was a 1915 model and I'm a 1937 model. I think she understood.
John, I'm with you on speed. About 40 mph it gets too scary for me. I find 30 to 35 about right.
Who says there are no deals anymore? Next season, when in Sin City, you will be able to combine a low-cost wedding with a low-coast pancake feast. Yes, the Las Vegas Denny's Marriage Chapel is arriving at a Sin City near you. Article source: why don't you have a look at https://personalmoneynetwork.com/?
John & Steve - One old and very experienced Model "T" Guy (and I think it might have been Royce's Dad) said that if you drive a Model "T" about 28 mph it will last almost forever!
Oops! I thought this was a current discussion, but now I see that this thread is about 6 months old and that someone L.A guy just brought it up for commercial reasons.
You don't belong on this site "Sorcia"; plug yer' junk someplace else!
Thank YOU, Harold S! My sentiments exactly.
Not all bad. I enjoyed seeing the wedding picture again.
Indeed - Dad says that any time a discussion about how fast to drive your Model T comes up. He also says he has never had a Model T crank break.
