Model T Touring or, Beep, Beep how do I get this car out of second gear?
Had a great time Sunday 10-23-2016 touring with members of the Central New Hampshire Model T Club
Thanks Warren. Always enjoy you videos and seeing pretty parts of the country. Regards, Tim
Great vid Warren! I gotta PM you later on with 60 questions of your video expertise!
The "other Tim"
Good camera location. I think it might be even better a little bit to the right, just inside but still to the driver's left. That would move the pillar to the left and frame the picture through the windshield more, which would allow a better view of the road ahead.
I really like the picture quality you get with the Go-Pro. I notice there's no wind noise. How did you manage that?
Wind noise?? In a stock model T? Must be driving into a head wind. . . .
Wonderful video, If I still have my T in a month or so I want to do the same thing here in Florida to help the northern guys through their winter!
We did enjoy a really nice tour planned by club member Steve Sanborn. The day started out cloudy, chilly (38 degrees when I left Keene at 7:00), and Very Windy. The clouds eventually parted and then left altogether. The temperature did rise to just 50 or so, but the strong wind never subsided. Some of the wind gusts could almost move your car into another lane and those of us with our top up felt the full force of the "drag chute" effect. We all commented on the significant slowing of forward movement caused by strong headwinds.
We started with nine Model Ts and one Model A. One club member joined us for a portion of the first half of the tour and another member tried to meet us for our lunch stop, but we never crossed paths; sorry Phil.
Warren's car was decorated for the Season.
At one of our stops.
The strong and chilly wind caused the folks in open cars to wear warm coats, gloves, headgear which covered the ears and a couple of snowmobile suits were seen. The drivers of enclosed cars were dressed more lightly.
We all enjoyed colorful foliage, scenic vistas, and comradery. Some of the cars enjoyed collecting leaves.
All cars performed flawlessly; no hoods were opened, no tools were reached for.
Bill Harper, thanks for posting your comments and photos. It really was a great tour and we traveled over some wonderful Model T roads. Thank you, Steve Sanborn, for hosting another great tour!
