This is a very professional a young guy driving a Ford Model T I think He seems familiar?? :-) :-)
Lookin' good, Steve!
I love it!! Thanks for the great camera work and subjects too. Joe
Love Steve's videos. He either had a camera assistant moving the camera from place to place, or many cameras, or spent a lot of time stopping, relocating camera, driving back around and through the viewing zone with the T. A lot of work!
In this case I enlisted a friend to act as cameraman, but I've done it the other way too.
Ha! What an uplifting start to a 37 degree south Texas morning by watching 2 famous Jelf Productions! I particularly liked the "road" in the first video and also enjoy driving a T down a tree lined dirt road. Unfortunately most tour chairmen don't include a route like that in their planning. Thanks Steve!!
Steve has all sorts of great videos on his Youtube channel:
Ha too George!! I woke up to 21 degrees this morning, it's down to 18 now and still dropping to near zero tonight. Sorry, but I'm glad most tour chairmen don't include dirt roads!! I know, I'm a wus when it comes to getting my cars dirty. Can't help it. My dad was that way so there ya have it!
Ya still gotta love the sounds of that T!
Do you think that's the way to his still?
My favorite "Jelf-help" video is by far the license plate restoration, great work,
What a beautiful day we had here in Wonderland today. The temperature blew past 0 Fahrenheit although the way up to 2 Fahrenheit. Watching Steve's video brought tears to my eyes.
Walking out to the mailbox and back in the sub zero chill factor 30mph wind brought tears to my eyes!!
Oh Tim, I hear ya! It's only about 100 ft to the mailbox but I'm on the south end of a flat 200 acre field and that wind today was brutal. Now it's finally slowed down a bit to 3 mph. Tomorrow they're forecasting some warmer weather. It could go to 21 Fahrenheit and 27 Fahrenheit by Thursday. We've really had some moderate temps this Winter and it's been a blessing. I think the coldest temp so far has been -18 Fahrenheit this Winter. However, this is only the beginning of January so I imagine we've still got some cold days coming.
You and I obviously see how a Model T fits into this world through the same prism.
That is a GREAT video and exactly how I envision T's being "properly" put through
I wonder if Steve was a fan of Rod Serling? His films sometimes remind me of the "Twilight Zone" television series, my favorite show growing up. Take his film "A Trip to Town in a Model T" for example. I didn't see a single other human being in the entire run. How did he do that? Was it intentional? I can almost hear Rod Serling's voice in the background in the opening scene as the garage door opens. Great work. By the way, if you watch closely near the end, you'll see a car going in the opposite direction as Steve crosses a bridge. But you have to look carefully.
Thread drift alert!!!
Michael G et al,
It was toasty warm here today! High was in the 40s. Overnight low above freezing one (maybe even two) of the few times in two weeks. I am stuck inside all day due to family health issues, again.
Mostly, I love the trees around my place. When it is cold, they offer some protection, and warmth above surrounding areas. And the shade in the summer heat is wonderful!
Sometimes, like today, the wind really blows (figuratively and literally). Fortunately, nothing serious blew down, today. We do have a dozen trees that could do serous damage to our house if they ever blew down the wrong way. We worried half the day. It didn't help any that two days ago, a large limb came down in a much lesser wind. Fortunately, about twenty feet from the house.
Joe, A, I am a long time fan of Rod Serling and the "Twilight Zone" also.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
