I've been busy updating the Model T Enthusiasts website, more valuable learning resources, particularly the new page about Model T uses - read about the multitude of innovative purposes the Model T was adapted to, some weird and wonderful, others just plain commonsense!
Follow the new link at the top "Model T Uses"
Is it just me or is this starting to appear spam-like?
Looking at his site, I think Mitch is just an enthusiastic fan. I don't see him selling anything. He says he works in the family business, but doesn't even say what it is. I love his home-made light bulb.
In a world chock-full of computerized human scum who have nothing better to do with their genuinely worthless lives than create viruses, malware and spyware; and engage in phishing, spamming and identity-theft, it's only natural (and prudent) to be skeptical of someone whose altruistic behavior stands out as such a digital anomaly. I too have become cyber-cynical (even to the point where I didn't want to provide my real birthday when registering for the MTFCI forum).
But Mitch is the Genuine Article—a sincere, gentlemanly ambassador of good will who puts a lot of effort into gathering info and presenting a very educational—and enjoyable website. I wish the antique car hobby had a million more just like him. Mitch, you da man!
I enjoy watching the videos and you have to admit his site is chock full of t information all in one location.
Now if his site would be full of Viagra pop-ups I would have to wonder.
Nice collection of info but the page is just too busy and hard to find anything. I find myself roaming the page with no specific direction. The links seem scattered all over. And I don't know why it wants Adobe Flash Player. I guess for the videos but they can be imbedded YouTube links instead. I only allow a VERY few sites to use Flash and this isn't one of them. HTML5 is safer.
I do appreciate the enthusiasm of a fellow Model T owner but my tired old eyes just can't be occupied by all the art activity on the site. Busy, busy, busy.
I could use a viagra pop-up.....
This seems to be a more aggressive website in my opinion.
If it brings more interest to the hobby its great to keep the interest up and to help the vendors sell more parts and creates interest in wanting to own a Model T.
Go for it.
Time will tell.
Great website. I remember that car when it was in Detroit. Great to see a young person taking such interest in this car and doing such a great job promoting the Model T hobby. Thank you.
Checked the website, Saw the home made light bulbs, fans and radio stuff. Looks like the sort of things i used to make way back.
Yeah looks like I spoke out of turn. Just seemed like he was posting this over and over and not responding to comments which is classic spammer behavior.
I have personally been involved in helping Mitch out with his Model T to get it on the road he is a six hour train ride from my place. I have had the privilege to attend a car show with him last weekend where his T won a trophy. The web site is not spam its his attempt at trying to bring Model T lovers and resources together the same way as this site. Mitch and I are younger than most but we are in for the long hall. We both have our cars on full registration and use them often.
Good work Mitch. We need ambassadors like yourself to keep this hobby where it will appeal to young and old. Like everyone on this forum I was that "young and enthusiastic" once but I had to wait a few years to own my first Model T.
Wow, That's some web site. Great work. I wish I had the know how to do something like that. Great job Mitch.
