Woke up to this...bugger.
It looks beautiful?!? But????
Great. Have fun in the snow. T's spin real good.
Well ts funny you should say that, the snow is fresh and soft and I backed it out and in a few times and it never spun the wheels at all. Couldn't believe it, impressive.
Model Ts actually do fairly well in the snow. Those skinny tires cut through and grip better than you might think. Then again, I did spin a model T speedster around in the snow once. Fortunately, I did not hit anything.
(You out there Steve H? Chime in if you are!) (Steve was right behind in a model A pickup with tire chains on it when I did that!) (By the way, Steve, congratulations on the Endurance Run Place!)
Snow and ice (along with things like fog) are things that seem easy, if you are used to them. And need to be approached very cautiously if you are not.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Can't see anything wrong. Aside from trying to start it and wait for it to warm up.
Wasn't that Kep I had to load it on a trailer and drive 3 hrs to Dunedin over steep hills in a foot of snow, not worth the risk any if I could actually get out of town.
I am assuming you are in Montana ?
What part - I want to go there ...
I think Kevin is near here:
Jim no not in Montana I'm on the other side of the world in New Zealand as Royce has indicated.
You are more than welcome to come over here if you want Jim, maybe summer is a better bet though.
A bit of snow or ice won't stop a Model T.
My Model A I bought for 35 dollars when I was 16 would go through the snow pushing it in front of the bumper climbing the Mohawk Trail
That looks beautiful !
Thanks for the pictures ....
It seems to warm up in order to snow in our parts, then the cold temps for our 'Frozen Tundra'. Not bad, if not too cold.
Wait! It's summertime!! Enjoy it while we can!!!
A fair portion of Lord of the Rings was filmed here, they run tours to view the locations. Last year they filmed "Slow West" a western movie and it was mostly filmed close by. They are slowly getting more modern era, hopefully the next one will require some model T's.
Mark is there any risk of axle/diff damage from fitting chains?
Should not be any damage. Really don't drive that fast with them on anyway. People have been using chains for a long time. I should fit one more cross chain on each side. As it is, these are the chains for my Dodge Dakota but it drives worse in the snow then the T did!
