Well RJ, how many miles per week do YOU drive your T?

I drive one of my T's most days to get about town as my daily driver. Small town so about 50 miles per week.

It depends which week. Last week I was on tour, so we drove about 500 miles. Other weeks, it's zero.

Lots more now that it's fixed! Lol, I try to drive mine absolutely every time I can that it's not raining. Once I can make the frame and have a top made I'll drive her even in the rain.

I work 75 hours most weeks and about every tenth day I have off. I try to drive my model A coupe at least to the store and back and the model T the same about 12 miles. Some time I go to dad's and back and that's 40 miles round trip. If I ever retire I will drive them daily. Tim

This was the first week I drove it besides the initial start up. I made several laps around the neighborhood with different groups of friends and neighbors, and went into town and filled it up with gas

I'm like Chris. Some weeks 50 miles or more, some weeks zero (but that's pretty rare). With trips to town for shopping and errands I'd guess 25-30 miles most weeks.

When the weather is decent, the wife and I typically put about 150 miles a week on the T. Mainly out to yard sales and breakfast on Saturdays. Toss in the occasional 200 mile weekend overnight trip.

Depends on many things. But on average I'd say easily 100-150 a week. Frankly on a nice day it's not hard to put on 60-70 in just one day, rambling around aimlessly.

I think there's one answer we can all agree on: Not enough.

I would like to drive more often, but it's finding the time to do it. Living in the country I have plenty of back roads to cruise, but it's just finding the time to do it. I'd say I get less than 5 miles of windshield time per week, average. Some weeks more, some weeks zero, so average 5 or less. Sad, I know.

Harold,
These are test drives, to make certain the car is ready for a club tour.

David,....right with ya' there! There's more than one reason to carry at least some sort of basic tool kit along at all times, right?

From Hagerty's web site:

Our policy allows you occasional pleasure use with no fixed mileage restrictions**.
** Occasional pleasure use does not mean use for daily driving to and from work or school, routine shopping, etc.

Sound's like basic common sense. I don't worry about when, where, or how much I drive, because it's a rare trip that doesn't include promoting the hobby to the public in some way.

During the summer I usually find a reason to drive one of the cars (two T's, K and N) to town daily. Yesterday, a trip to the post office with the K. I thought it appropriate to use the K to deliver it's own speedometer to the post office for shipment to Russ Furstnow.

This video was from four pics a neighbor took when we popped in unexpectedly.

Summers are meant for old car drives......
