I seem to remember this show on TV when I was a kid. I remember this episode where they were I think at Greenfield Village and explained about the Model T. The man said something about how easy a properly tuned Model T would start. He then gave this car one crank and it started.
Funny what you remember with the right bump.
I think the show was called Discovery.
What gives with the power/extension cord going up into the engine bay?
If only more t.v. shows were still that good.
Probably for a microphone?
Lol yeah, it's definitely a microphone cord, look at the connector right where the cord starts to lift off the ground.
Is that #839?
The ladys' name was Virginia Gibson.
My earliest T memory was my wife driving away with another man in one!
He brought her back... after some time had passed. Dang it!! ;)
Here's the Wikipedia entry for the Discovery show:
If that's Greenfield Village, then yes that's #839
Looks like the "bulb" of the microphone is right under the radiator on the frame...nice pic Herb
My earliest memories of a T, go only back to the early 1970s. My history teacher showed a film on the Model T. I remember the narrator saying: "There's one car that can take you anywhere you want to go......". (now on youtube)
It was love at first sight.
As teenagers, the other guys wanted muscle cars.
I wanted a T.......or a 68' GT-350.
Now that I have a little more money, Ford starts producing the Shelby Mustangs again, temptation temptation. I had a personal ultimatum...Shelby or Lizzie.
I think the new Shelbys are way cool but there's nothing like driving a T. At the gas pump with Liz, I'm often asked if I drive the ol' gal to car shows or parades. My reply is: "everywhere you drive a Model T is a parade and everywhere you park it is a car show.
Sorry Shelby but my heart goes to Lizzie.
I was going to suggest Wonderama but that sure isn't Sonny Fox.
There is also a wire between the man's legs.
