Went quite slow, and there are many things left to do, but it works. We filmed it on 16mm film this is recorded off the wall with my phone.

It looks huge and tiny at the same time.

Looks good is that the radiator you got from me, Bob

That's great. It is always a good feeling to get a T running and drive for the first time after you buy it or after working on it. Best still is after you assemble it.

One word of caution, however, I don't know how long it was after you drove the car until you removed the radiator cap. I had a good friend who liked to go up a steep hill and then remove the radiator cap and watch the geyser. He happened to do that the day before his wedding, and had a severe burn on his face while he stood before all the witnesses to the marriage.

It's best to let it cool off before removing the cap or at least wait till it stops boiling and then don't get your face or any part of your body over the filler neck.

I was waiting for the Laurel & Hardy scene where the wheel comes off in his hands; no steering wheel nut??

Ex Trooper, I have a funny story about a steering wheel coming off, Had to do with a complaining yelling woman and horn service on a 67 ford. It's amazing how fast they stop yelling when you hand them the steering wheel at 55 mph. Sorry Chris, Not to take away with your moment. I loved the movie.

Chris, great day in the neighborhood. !!!. Way to go . The only thing I wish you would do is refilm it on a old gravel road with no modern cars. Its great as-is though... I may try that sometime. I still have my old 8MM stuff. Ill have to figure out where to get film and have it processed. Does anyone know if there is a process to do it on digital to look like black and white film ...?? I bet there is a App for that somewhere. ??

I used these guys to transfer about 35 8mm rolls to a memory stick. Their standard way is to put it on a DVD but I requested the Memory stick because each roll is in a separate file. I supplied the memory stick. It cost about $3.00 per roll plus the stick and they were great to work with.

Bob, yep, that is the same radiator, wheels too.
I ordered the film from Kodak, turns out they are selling more 16mm than ever before. Many things, such as AMC's The Walking Dead are filmed on 16mm.
Yale in Hollywood processed it for me. $.21 a foot, that 3 minute roll cost me about $45 Looking at processing it myself.
I have plans for this movie, and a long trip in August. When it is more rounded out I'll let y'all know about it.
