I had my 1913 out at a Sufferage event this weekend. The local AAUW had a scholarship fundraiser on Sunday commemorating the sufferage movement from 1913-1920. They had "classic" cars invited... a 1933 Pierce Arrow, 1926 Dodge Sedan, 1924 Dodge Screenside and a 1913 Ford.
The younger set there wanted their photos taken standing next to the Screenside... then had to finish up on the Ford:
Terry--that's a cute little firetruck! The chicks aint bad either!
Very Nice!! Bud.
Really nice that you could help them out. I tell people that chicks really love my T. The trouble is that they tend to be under 7 or over 70!
I stopped in at the local Hooters and right way, the girl on the left offered to give me a free beer for a ride in the parking lot which I happily obliged, how could I say no? You can see in the windshield reflection that the whole bar came out to take pictures. Yes the T is a chick magnet.
That does it. I'm coming to Hamilton with the truck!
Well Greg, if you have an enclosed truck, that could increase your "ride" options.
Don't coma knockin' if the truck is a rockin'.
I even drove a young lady around a gas station once - 6 pumps. She thought it was the greatest.
Had a customer come up to me yesterday and stroke my soft white beard. Everyone near the register stopped what they were doing and watched. Too bad my T was home in the garage.
Dave that pic is a bit small for a desktop image. :>(
Looks good though!
I agree the T is far more of a female attractor than any other vintage or new vehicle I have driven. In fact it seems to be almost a "universal car" because I get BEAMING smiles from everyone, whether they're 19 or 89. ....now if only I had the guts to ask one of those smiling girls if they want a ride ; )
I am always amazed at the recognition from young and old. Any little kid know a 57 chevy? etc, etc,....? They sure seem to know a model T when they see it.
I agree....I get 'em from 8 to 80, crippled to crazy!! Definitely a chick magnet, I tell that to all the young studs even showing a bit of interest in the hobby. And I'm with you Ben.....
All you have to do is look them in the eye and ask 'Would you like a ride?'. Some say yes and jump in. Others just shake their heads no. Their loss.
Sometimes they just want to sit in it, especially if they are kids and you tell them to sit in it and let mom or dad take a pic. Works every time.
"I'll give you a ride. How far do you want to go?"
Dave Wells. You'd better give as many rides as often as you can to those Hooter's honey's, for it won't be long before the girls won't be able to go outside in those outfits for a ride, there in Ontario, without becoming one big goosebump. Once that happens, tell em to come on down to Florida where Jim Patrick will give them all the rides they want and I'll even do it without the free beer just for the pleasure of their company. Just be sure to tell them not to forget their bikinis for the trip to Dayton Beach . Jim Patrick
Is that the Dayton Beach in central Ohio?
Thomas you proof read better than me. LOL! That's Daytona... Jim Patrick
