LOL, I watched this movie. I think he disappears completely in the engine compartment and then opens up the hood and crawls out the other side. Lots of great T humor. I can't remember what it's called.

He should have used the crosswalk. That will be difficult to remove and dispose of.

Donnie,
I think this one is called "Speedy". Been a long time since I have seen it. I do have it on DVD. Harold Lloyd is Great!!!!, But I like Buster Keaton even better.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

The T speedster is Lloyd's car the 1922 feature comedy "Grandma's Boy."

That first image is indeed from a short titled "Get Out and Get Under" with Harold Lloyd and his future wife Mildred Harris.
If you haven't seen it, you should watch it.
In the second scene Lloyd opens his garage to get his Model T out for a spin. It appears to be a brand new car. As shiny as a new dollar (although there is a noticeable door ding). Following that, there is great street footage of him driving it around LA (look for him passing a Pierce Arrow - the contrast in size is remarkable)
I think more than one T was used in this film although they do keep using the same Calif. license plate.
The movie really is a treat.
In "Speedy", Lloyd drives Babe Ruth around in a Model T taxi with a very unusual body. I don't know if it's genuine after-market or something that was made for the film, but it is quite unusual.
Netflix has both of these films and they may also be on YouTube.
