One of the best Model T videos I have ever seen. It puts a smile on my face every time I see it!
Nice, I'm hoping that someday when I get in a place I can stay for more than a couple of years I can do that same thing. It must be a blast to do!
I spent much of my career in Las Vegas from 1984 to 2006. Watching this video almost make me want to move back. You notice I said almost! Winnemucca for me is heaven. Harv
Nice video, showing folks having fun with their T's. You can't beat that!
Every Saturday - how fun is that ! We have three local T Clubs in the Greater Seattle-Tacoma area and trying to get even half a dozen T's together once a month is a "special" occasion ! Our Carbon Club at least, drives a majority of Model T's on a tour & "get togethers".
Very well done.
Thanks for the smiles Warren.
Thanks guys, it's one of my anti depression things to do while waiting for winter to end. This winter some very good friends and I are going through the '26 "medical edition" coupe ( I don't want to offend anybody by calling it a Doctor"s coupe ) that I bought last summer and fixing what needs repairing. We rebuilt the rear end and are now working on the engine and transmission ( I think by now including my "17 Canopy Express Delivery, I have reached platinum costumer status with Lang's Old car Parts!
PS: here's another video that you may enjoy:
Great Video Warren! Thanks! Now I wanna move there just like Harvey! Missing out on sooo much driving time up here in the rust belt.
"rust belt" ? It rains in Ohio ?
I sure liked the video and i say thank's!! All those red T's make me wish Grandmaw would let me paint our's!! Bud.
Steve - I think I can elaborate just a bit on the term "rust belt"! Frankly, there is much more involved with that term than just rain! Having grown up in the Chicago area, with almost ten years in Montana, I can tell you that it has more to do with snow and ice, and the resulting rock salt and other more modern but still corrosive varieties of stuff used in all cities and most fairly large towns to melt snow and ice! I moved from Chicago to Montana with the railroad in 1972. Left the wife & kids (and car) home until the house sold when I started the Montana job. Because I needed a dependable car to drive out to Montana and to use on the job, my father-in-law gave me 1966 Pontiac Tempest that he had bought new, because with only 66,000 miles on it, it was a 6-year old good driving car in excellent mechanical shape, but was rusted so badly in just 6 years that he could not even give it away, much less sell it! One headlight taped in place so it wouldn't fall out, and my second week in Montana, on a rough logging road, the gas tank literally fell out, because the floor of the trunk was so badly rusted that the anchoring points for the two straps that held the gas tank in place finally let go! That was one tough old Pontiac, because I actually drove another couple hundred yards uphill in low gear on that logging road, wondering why the engine exhaust system was so quiet as I initially thought the muffler had fallen off and was dragging. I finally stopped to check it out and found that I had been dragging the gas tank just by the rubber hose fuel line! I then backed over the tank and lifted it back sort of in place and secured it with a length of old rope that (fortunately) had been laying in the trunk! Not pretty, but that tough old rusted out "Poncho" got me out of the woods and mountains and back to town! Anyway, that's just an example of why car guys from areas of ice & snow and cities that use rock salt and stuff to melt it use the term "rust belt",......harold
Great video. Must be wonderful for all of the Las Vegas tourist to see these great cars running down the strip on a Saturday morning. Thanks for sharing that with us.
In the 70's and 80's I lost 2 new cars and a pickup to the salt in Indiana. Nasty stuff. I had gaping holes in the rear quarter panels, front fenders and floor of my 70 Camaro when it was just 6 years old. Ran great but the body was just flaking away. A 70 Ford pickup and a 280Z suffered the same fate. I have no desire to go "Back Home Again In Indiana".
I visited them one Saturday when we were in Las Vegas. We followed in our modern car. I asked what they do when the weather gets hot. The answer, "We just do our tour earlier in hot weather" I think it would be great if all the local clubs were as enthusiastic as the Southern Nevada. It would be great to go out once a week on a short tour and have breakfast together.
