I took my 14 to a local high school today and demonstrated to two automotive classes. The kids had great questions and some of them got a ride. Great fun! We discussed the assembly line and function of the car. Price new and what the cars abilities are.

Very nice. Some of those young folks will remember that for a long time. It is very worth while.

Thanks guys for all of the kind words. If you ever get a chance to do this it is rewarding. One kid got a ride, he told me "I can't stop smiling!"

Nice one Mike. I enjoy my annual visits with my T to the school where my wife teaches. They are amazed to see it move under its own power. Most interesting feature to them is always the horn followed by crank starting. In his last year at the junior school, at age 11, my youngest son was able to demonstrate the hand crank starting feature. I turned the ignition off while others tried. Most were barely able to move the handle or even engage it. I am proud my son takes an interest in the T and look forward to him be owner of one one day.
