Thanks Mark. It made my day. I have mentioned before that those comedies contributed to my love of the Model T. It was nice to see the young boy's interest in the Model T.
Rich Bingham and I made a movie where he chases his Depot Hack something like that. Maybe we can get it on U-tube to share.

I used my old model T as a mobile stage for performing traveling medicine shows. If you want to see pictures google Dr. Bumstead medicine show and click on images.

Apparently an oil drip pan beneath a Model T (even a presumably almost new one!) is nothing new. Too bad Ford didn't provide one with every Model T sold - to go along with the jokes about Tin Lizzie that Henry claimed helped sell his cars. Paraphrasing, he said that every joke told about his Model T sold another new one. Maybe he was right!?! :-)

Harold Lloyd is my favourite. Superb stunts and so much action you see more on each viewing.

But the best bit in this film is the silent movie joke. The car starts shaking when the kid jumps on it and we, the audience, think it's started. But why does Harold? Because he's in a silent movie and can't hear sound either! Brilliant, cracks me up every time!

There is so much going on, I have to watch it more than once. A lot of detail will be wasted on "moderns" who don't know what they are seeing (or hearing) like "O Promise Me" in the music track . . .

That's the same year and model I have right down to the whitewall tires. It is nice to see the same kind of T I have in action back in the day. It is also a great little short. You can't go wrong with Harold Lloyd.

Mark, I finally got around to looking up Dr. Bumstead. Wonderful stuff, I bet you had a lot of fun with that gig !

I have one just like that! Only it usually behaves. Although it is an Athiest. I tried to drive it to church twice and both times it broke down!
