I remember watching this as a spectator and how incredibly fast some of those cars would go up that hill....neat video clip
Signal Hill Model T Climb
It's too bad the hill/road has been "improved" (ruined). I'll bet there's another place (San Pedro? P.V.?) that would do as well.
I watched twice as a kid and didn't even know my "to be Uncle" ran the hill and trophy-ed near to time I was there. After I was married I had brief possession of the car he did it in. I learned how to drive a T in that car but with a new family couldn't afford to buy it when it sold. He just passed this year and now I have the trophy but not the car. I've seen the scrapbook but his son kept it for now.
Let's try a photo.
It reads, Semi-Modified(magneto removed) "Stock Crank" Passenger Cars(1923 Touring) 2nd Place
neat video, I reconized a few cars in the clip.
