My roadster has become nearly a daily driver. Most days it's the car I drive to town for groceries, paying bills, etc. On these warm summer evenings I often go out exploring local roads. I don't see any point in having one of these cars and just letting it sit in the garage.
Steve, that's one of your best videos yet, thankyou!
I can see one advantage of magneto headlights - they turn themselves off when you shut off the car!
I see Mr. Frugal didn't leave the light on before he went on a drive.
Thanks for the ride Steve.
Great attitude Steve. I don't do that much any more, but I have been on four major tours this year.
That was fabulous.
Watching that was like having a time machine.
You just took 100 years off the clock...
Way to go, Steve. Felt like I was back there with you for a few minutes. Bob
Thank you for that video, Steve.
I have to agree with Steve. I enjoy driving my T and do it most of the time. When it is time to go to the post office or grocery store I fire up the T. And winter does stop a T either, it does have it's affects on me. It can get cold in the T. But if you have a T, drive it. I used to belong to the local Hudson club and their motto is "we drive our cars, we don't tow them around". That applies to Model T's too. Mike
When we lived in South Carolina our 27 was considered a daily diver. Weather was mild enough during the winter and during summer we just kept the top us so we were out of the sun. Plenty of old clay roads to toot along on that were seldom travelled by moderns.
That's what I'd call 'livin the dream'. Well, my dream anyway. Someday.
Thanks for sharing, I needed that.
Steve, Nice video! I like how your magneto head lights dim down to off at the end.
I do the majority of my driving in our 1915 Roadster year round unless it's pouring outside. Our Modern cars pretty much have spider webs anchoring them to the drive way most of the time.
Steve makes really nice videos.
Keep up the good work Steve.
Yeah, I'm with all the others Steve. Great Video. So now, your assignment, should you decide to accept it, is to post as many of these great videos as you can. They're very enjoyable.
Oh no Mark, we shouldn't let him off the hook that easy. We've already see a lot of the past videos but, he's getting better and better at it as time goes on. Steve B. DeMille must go on with the show!
Well maybe I'm showing a little extra touch of exuberance. But I do think he does a pretty good job with his videos.
One of these days I'll draft a helper and we'll do a slick video on different kinds of T era roads.
I agree Steve. I do not own any "Garage Ornaments"!
Sign me up when If I ever come to visit Steve!
Everyone's turn to post a video now.
Mark you da man cudaman. Nice video too.
Again, thanks for the ride, this time, Mark Though did I see you spinning the crank?
Yep, I spun it on that video for some reason. Never fear, I usually don't.
Ran to breakfast this morning. Haven't driven the modern stuff since I off loaded the car.
Steve. You have an artistic eye and these videos are excellent. Love the camera angles. That evening sun is just the ticket for a guy with vision. Thank you.
I drive T nearly every day to and from work and a fair amount on the weekend as well. Given that I live in a city I'm thinking that it's one of the most frequently driven antique cars in a metropolitan area.
Great video Mr Jeff just wish I had roads around here like that
I especially liked the four fireflies I spotted between 2:21 - 2:35.
Poor quality, shot on an old 8mm camera, 1985. Also a quick clip at the beginning of a reproduction 1903 Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk on the 80th anniversary of the 1st flight.
It would help to include a link, I guess...
I agree with Steve, I drive mine at least 4 times a week, what could be better than a nice Summertime cruise in a Model T.
One of these days I'm going to buy a GoPro to cut down on the wind noise, I told my wife holding the camera behind the windshield might help also.
Steve: Where is the dog? I thought he liked to go for a ride. Allen Brintnall S.W. Mo.
The cinematographer does it again. Steve, you're an artist!
Steve: Your videos are quite enjoyable. As someone who has done a good share of "Solo Productions" I realize how much work and effort you actually put into them. The time taken to set up the different shot angles, especially the ones where the camera is not in the vehicle is well appreciated. Kudos again, Sir!
Allen, I'm dogless again and watching the ads for a new canine. The last one ran afoul of a truck and joined my backyard pet cemetery.
That was a great video!
Steve great pictures....your shots of you coming and going down the road remind me of Travelogues that Stan Midgley shot with 16mm film. The Lions club would show them to raise money, very entertaining with Stan's own humor. I believe he used a bike, and took you to the Rockies or Grand Canyon, Alaska...later he would be seen on the TV Travelogue of George Pierrot in the Detroit area. Your videos do a great job of capturing what we all feel as we drive these T's........
Steve, my '14 runabout has the same squeak as your '15! I wonder when Ford discontinued it? Many thanks for this morning's shot of nostalgia.....get a dog.
Steve, sorry to hear about your dog. I really likes seeing that Border Collie, mine always tries to do a cameo when I film.
Steve, sorry here's that link I tried to include:
