Most years since 1975 we've had a family reunion here on the farm. In recent years these have included Model T rides. It was a smaller turnout that usual this time, but still fun.
Explaining the windshield to my "little" cousin Eric.
We're off to howdy the old timers up at the cemetery.

Maybe next time we'll have T driving lessons.
Next year? Beginning theory of model T driving! For Cardell, you might want to wait two years for actual model T driving? (Although, I was driving Ford N series tractors solo when I was six!)
Good family relations are a wonderful thing!
Drive carefully, and enjoy! W2
That's great. And a farm is wonderful place to learn to drive -- not a lot of traffic.
I tried to Google "do you need a driver's license, insurance, license tag to drive an old car on a farm?" but it didn't really answer my question. At my Grandfather's farm when I was growing up they had an old Ford pickup that was retired and never left the farm. It was their understanding and mine at the time that it was legal to drive without a license; drive before the age of being able to get a license; the car didn't have to be registered or tagged, and insurance was not needed if you stayed on the farm and didn't go on the main road (which was dirt ... it was sort of out in the country).
Looks like everyone was having a great time. Thank you for being such a great ambassador for our club and our hobby!

Hap said it well, and I agree!
It will be a few years before the littlest cousins can reach the pedals, but the bigger ones are eligible. I have a road we can use without ever going off the place.
The question is jurisdiction, and for driver licensing, the only place the state has jurisdiction
is on public roads. Stay on private property and you can let your pet alligator take the wheel !
Bad idea, Burger. The alligator is one of the worst drivers I've ever seen....
Thanks for sharing. I always enjoy the YouTube video of your trip through the woods in the 1915 Ford.
