I just took my 1914 T Runabout,(#395707/ 12/16/1913), for a ride around the block a couple of times. Now that it's 2015 I wonder approximately how many of the 656,063 Model T's built by 12/31/1914 that are now 100+ years old are still drivable and on the road. Only 5% would still be almost 33,000 T's. Mark

My '13 is down for a new set of wheels, but I have driven it often over the last 10 years and look forward to getting it back in 6 weeks or so.

My July 2nd 1914 Touring is ready to go when the weather clears in Denver. My 1907 Model R still needs to be restored.

A shucks I guess I will have to wait for -on one of them 2 years and the other 4 years. But they will have their turn sooner or later. If after having a 4 way bypass I make another two years I will look towards the 4 year mark and celebrate like the one's at 100 years!
Have a Happy New Year everyone and keep on T"ing

Mine technically won't be 100 until about may. The block made
100 yrs on 12/10/14 but the beaudette body wasn't made until the spring of 1915. I think my car was assembled in St Louis but that is a total shot in the dark guess. Were T's assembled in St Louis MO?
The roadster has only been painted and upholstered and maybe overhauled once. The bores are standard and pistons
Are iron. Cotton bands I put in 3 yrs ago and the magneto is still hot despite the decrepit look of the coil rings insulation.
Roller timer and two piece valves . It runs well and is driven with lots of care and not very often.
By summer I will have heartfelt pride that the car still operates in somewhat untouched (mechanically) condition.

I don't think we will get very close to counting them all. Every year I run into some more. I have an '09 I drive, a '14 in the works and a '15 that will be 100 in August.

Rich

The one on the right is my '09.

Steve,

Your 15 roadster is way cool, exactly what my next T will be. Just a REALLY nice driver. If that car were mine, I would not change a thing. ..Brian

Years old. Last year when it turned 100 the temp. Just happened to be 14 degrees. That was a fun photo op.
