Just passed a green 27 touring with wire wheels heading south on 101 in Los Angeles area by Woodman ave. I recognized that white knuckled grip and gritted teeth look from when I drive my T 40 mph. He was doing at least 60
You're a long way from home Bill. Are you driving your T on the freeway????
I guess if you exude enough confidence it will form a force field around your T. I agree, braver then me!
My personal pucker number = 37
There was another thread not too long ago that correlated slow driving to not being confident. So I suppose we should embrace this sort of driving style.
I think we all have a speed where confidence fades into concern. That point of concern drives my personal limit. Those speeds vary a fair bit for me depending on which car I'm driving, the condition of the road, the weather, and the amount of traffic. I choose not to be the judge of how fast you should drive - your life, your car, and your ticket (whether it be for speeding or hindering).
Luke C., .....Are you in Califunny?
Ken in Texas
Must not have had a stock engine. A stock 27 touring would not exceed 50. I wonder if he had brakes? I would think that he would have modified 4 wheel brakes. Even so, it would be scary.
Garrett Green? He can do 60 and his motor is stock (by Montana 500 rules).
Probably safer driving the T on the Ventura Fwy than on Ventura Blvd.
My wife and I were on our way to see relatives this morning when we passed the T. I believe it to be a 27 as it had YOM plates on it. The engine sounded like a wound up stockish (technical term ) engine. Very nice looking car.
Tom of course you know Garrett and you both can do Over 60 with your stock T's..
On the Cal Dreamin tour I drove back to our motel from Pismo Beach with another club member, he was driving A crank center door and my '12 Torpedo. We cruised the whole way down between 45 and 65. Was very light traffic and a nice smooth straight road. Both of our cars are in top condition and inspected often.
The '16 center-door sedan I had? I was twice clocked at 55 mph in it. I never did have it quite wide open throttle.
I agree with Walt B, I do not generally encourage people to drive their Ts faster than they feel comfortable with.
Just, drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
