Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: Video practice

I had to get the roadster off the trailer and into the shop today, so I decided to use the job for some video practice. I'm using a Mac, so the program that came with the computer is iMovie. It's pretty easy to use, but it does take some practice, just like driving a Model T. You can watch the show and tell me how I'm unloading all wrong. :-)

Did you try to start ? I would think that enough fuel would have trickled down enough to drive it off.

I thought he was going to chain it to the tree then pull the trailer out from under it.

Your video was great Steve. Good lighting, good sound, no cussing. But when it was over, I was wore out! Tell me that's not how you usually unload a non running Model T by yourself.

I would have backed up to the door, jacked the rear of the tow car as high as I could and sat in it while it rolled off..
Or....do as Steve did, but leave hand brake lever all the way forward so the engine would keep it from rolling off too fast.

Oh, the video was bordering on excellent.

Well, that's 4 minutes and 3 seconds I probably won't get back again. However it was a well done video.

I've done this job before by "just rolling" the car off, with unfortunate results. That's why this time I used the wedges and had the parking brake partially set so things wouldn't get out of hand. It was slow, but easy.

Nice video, not much tread on that tire, I have gas tanks in stock if you need one, Bob

Before long that bald tire will be going bye-bye. I have new ones that will be going on when I get my new wheels. Don't know about the tank yet. Still investigating the old one.
