Frank and I spent some time explaining how a Model T works to a bunch of kids today. How can you not like the smiles on their faces just because they can sit in the car. And you should have seen their faces when I cranked Frank. No body there had ever seen that done. Not sure it's the best idea, but I couldn't resist letting two ladies crank Frank---got it started and smiled.
Good on ya!
I totally agree.
Edumacating people about these cars is definitely the best part of a car show. So many smiles. Same thing at the gas station, public boat dock I go to all the time, even the grocery store. Good going John!
Thanks for being a great ambassador for our hobby and club. You never know who's interest may be sparked and continue to grow over the years.

You can find kids (and the right kind of adults) interested in your car at any street
corner, gas station, or grocery store .... anywhere you go or stop. Especially if you
enjoy traveling out in the boondocks and small towns. No being stuck in a sweltering
parking lot, no stupid ribbons and trophies, and best of all, no "typical" car show idiots.
Looks like a lot of fun John! The weather was perfect for a car show today. The 1912 looks beautiful. Our fall show is tomorrow here in Kingwood and we will be showing the 1911 Sears. Mike
Bully for you !
Sensational! That is what this hobby is about!
Those little kids will remember that forever. They will be future model T eers in the next few years. Nice. Tim
Excellent! Love it!
I few weeks ago I had the truck pulled out of the shop while I did some work inside.
A couple women with small children came up to the open doors and asked if the kids
could look at the truck and the moms get pix of the little booger-eaters. I said that
would be fine, and asked if they'd like to go for a ride. They were shocked, but the
kids excitedly piled aboard and off we went for a short spin. One of the mothers and
a kid rode up front with me in the cab. By all the shrieks and giggles, I think they had
a good experience of it.
Poisoning the minds of youth every chance I get.
