I'm really enjoying these summer evenings, going out for a cruise in the roadster, exploring local roads.


Some folks have these cars and never drive them. They're missing out on the fun.

Timeless... Classic... (The car and the owner)

Hallmark greeting card? ... Priceless!

My strong passion for a roadster just got stronger!

Thank You Sir!

Nothing like a top down drive at dusk in a runabout. Even better on a lonely country road. If you like the still, this is even better - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOI1dbMYaiM -
Thank you Steve, for both items.

I love driving mine especially when it's HOT.
Even the Tudor is comfy with the windshield open....... :-O

There is a full moon tonight. When the sun had set and the moon had just come up it seemed like a perfect time to take the T for a short drive. All is right with the world now:-)

Wifie and I took 40 mile drive the other night, it is amazing what we seen going 30 mile a hour over roads we drive ever day in a modern car. Had to come home with lights on, because we stopped to get gas and the car show lasted so long, just couldn't drive off from all the questions. Wife had her group and I had mine.

Some folks would drive them a lot more if they had access to roads like that!

Yes, that's a blessing here. Lots of good Model T roads.

We just finished our annual Doughty 500 in Northern Wisconsin. About 300 miles of dirt roads. That's what T's were made for.

I get one of my T's out as much as possible. Even finally resorted to putting the top up to get out of the sun in order to enjoy the ride. Doing more "headlight" runs this year than ever also. Been great.

Envious, but not so much I care to move back to the states. So I live vicariously through all these picture posts

Its not much fun driving my T. I live in the city where the traffic,lights,stop signs, etc. make it not fun to drive, and the T impossible to use.
I envy people like Steve who can enjoy their cars and smell the fresh air.

George: Looks like you are settling in to Missourah. I recognized the restaurant you posted a while back. Welcome to Missouri. Allen Brintnall S.W. Mo.

On the road

I have never taken my 27 coupe to a show, I just like to take it out on the road to show it off and answer questions from kids, young and old.

Steve, how is it there is always a photographer following you?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Steve Jelf, Parkerfield KS on Friday, August 19, 2016 - 10:35 pm:

A lot of the pictures are taken by my assistant, Mister Tripod.

The traffic situation here is a big advantage. A couple of years ago Ed Emerson and I drove the route of a planned Model T tour. In fifty miles we saw three other vehicles, and two of them were the same truck twice. In town there's usually plenty of traffic on Summit Street, the main drag, but the speed limit is only 30 mph. Out of town I stay off the high speed highways. There are plenty of good Model T roads.

There is something special with the evening air and the top down. Steve, you really know how to live!

Steve, great pic like usual. There is nothing better in my opinion, than a twilight cruise in a T roadster...glad to see you have your hands at the proper 10+2 location to prevent future adventures into another ditch. :-)

I used to live in a place where driving a T would be super dangerous, with all the stunt drivers
and such. The weather sucked too. So, I reassessed my life priorities and left. Why live in a place
where it sucks ? There are things more important in life than a job or "just cuz".
