Today was a beautiful day here in southern New Hampshire so I want out for a drive. I'm trying a new location for the video camera, what do you think?
I like !
Warren -- Since you asked ( ), I think having it directly in line with the windshield/door post isn't the best location. It seems to me that a few inches to one side or the other would be better.
I kind of liked that spot. Maybe not as a steady diet, but it was an interesting view. Sorta the dog with the head out the window view.
Thanks for your suggestions. I best way would be to have someone riding with me and making the video. That way I could also have a couple of drive-bys.
Get a tripod. You can shoot it all yourself. A piece of foam rubber over the microphone will cut some of the wind noise. Vary the shots. Erich is right. As one shot of many, that location is fine. As the whole video, not so much. If you have a Mac, use the iMovie software to cut each shot to just the part you want, and string them together into your magnum opus. For Windows, I think there's some free or cheap software you can download.
Well, using a tripod can go wrong sometimes. in my case having it placed on the floor in front of the backseat it failed standing gear change to high - fortunately no damage as it landed on the back seat.
By the way, the video was taken on my first longer tour in July with my 1916.
A bit of nylon cord, a bungee, and a small sandbag will prevent that.
I've used a tripod several times but always use bungees or clamps to tie it down.
Thanks again to everyone for their suggestions. Steve, a great video, I think I will have to learn how to do some editing. Joerg, I enjoyed your video until you fell over. Jim, another great video, what kind of auxiliary transmission do you have in back of the standard T?
Central New Hampshire Model T Club had a great day at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway 09-27-2014. There goes the pace car and look at me pass all those other T's like they're standing still! Oh, wait a minute they were standing still waiting for their turn on the track.

My T has a standard Ruckstell rear end. "Four Speeds for Ford"
Jim,Thanks again, you sure know how to shift it very well. I'm putting a Ruckstell in my '17, it's going slow, but I hope to get it finished before our Frostbite tour. hope I can shift as well as you when I'm all done.
My first T driving video.
Nice vid Royce, i always enjoy seeing other forum members cars out and about. Seems like she ran very well.
You drive ridiculously sweet/ridiculously expensive car.
Good camera location.
I am really jealous of the coil noise you guys with earlier cars get : ) I can still hear them, but not like that.
Ed - 'Spose that's because your "new improved" '26 & '27 have the coil box under the hood instead of on the dash board?
