Would you like to watch the what must be the most trying adventure in the world with an old car there is? Follow along as a tough and adventurous
group of people in 96 cars face trials and tribulations as they drive from Beijing to Paris.

As part of our new Sunday Edition we have an excellent 22 minute long video of the Paris to Peking Rally with 96 cars that includes the 1913 Model T
seen in the photo above. A good half of the cars in the rally are American and the filming and scenery are top rate.

Did he install batteries in that car? Looks like a high voltage charging cord to me laying on the deck. :-)

according to another video I saw, the guy in the Model T runs 20/50 oil in it.

here's a better in depth version of the above video. Nicky Bailey, the owner of the Model T, also broke a "ball joint".

I think Constantine's trip across Australia, Africa, the Mid East, and Europe to Moscow, all on his own to me is the top Model T journey achievement of this century!

I would love to do the rally. However it is a very expensive exercise. Someone I know did it recently in a Model A and I think the cost was in excess of $70,000 -Karl
