Finally worked on two cars this weekend, starting the 1913 T touring and the 1906 N. Today we finished planting corn (well, I just hauled some seed), so I treated myself with a couple of trips to town for fuel.
With a "bent wheel" it was hard to get in, but the open front N seemed to work best. I had to learn to operate all three pedals (two brakes and reverse on NRS) with just my left foot, but it all worked out OK.
It's good to be back "among the driving"
Hard to believe, but a 1906 Model N is ADA approved
I wish I had a photo of me going down the highway with a crutch strapped to side of my motorcycle when I broke my foot! Glad to hear you are back to the land of the driving.
Rob, Great photos, beautiful car.
Very nice Rob. I love your Model N. Since you have that great Model K maybe you will Sale the N to me.
Ha Ha Mark
Thanks guys. Mark S., I'll keep you in mind . It's surprising how both the K and N drive much like our Ts. The primary difference with the N is the shorter wheelbase causes the ride to be much bumpier, especially on gravel roads with "washboard" surfaces.
The Model K on the other hand, is like driving a pickup truck. The 1907/08 K had the suspension beefed up dramatically (a real weakness of the first Ks). The solid suspension combined with the longer wheelbase make the K a very comfortable solid riding car.
