Hagerty has a free class. Wonder if they also teach driving the 'T'???
Or anything with an unsynchronized crash box, like a Model A or my 1912 Buick?
Or a car such as my Metz, with it's friction drive transmission AND (get a load of this) a "clutch" pedal which must be depressed to engage (it ratchets into position for driving and you tap it with your toe to release it) And, AND a brake pedal which also serves as the Parking Brake. That pedal ratchets into position to act as the parking brake, but when driving and you want/need to slow or stop the car you depress the pedal, it ratchets to that position And Stays There until you tap it with your toe to release it.
And the throttle lever is down for closed and up for full throttle.
Yes, you have to be "on your toes" to drive a Metz. No texting, no changing CDs, no eating a pizza, nothing else, you gotta pay attention.
Everybody did something different, back in the day. The one-cylinder Cadillac, like the Metz, had a ratchet on the foot brake to hold it down for parking. The Sears highwheeler, like the Metz, had friction drive. But it didn't have a ratchet; you had to hold the pedal down all the time, like climbing Mt. Washington in low in a T. The Stanley's steam throttle, like the Metz, is up to go; it can get interesting if I suddenly have to slow down and forget I'm not driving a T!
I took a C-60 or 70 dump truck to get it inspected one time and as I was explaining to the guy how all the toggle switches work everything (rats got in the wires) and how to drive it he just said,"I don't really care about all that, where is your insurance and that will be $7"
