She seems very pleasant and knowledgeable.
The "summer version" of the other one posted from winter a couple years ago.
"Keep your eyes on the road sweetie"!!
Cute chick, think I need to get a job there in the summer... wink wink.
Thanks for posting John!
Great video and she seems more than comfortable driving a T. Really cool...
A foam screen over the microphone might cut down some of that wind noise.
She can drive my T
When my wife & I went for a ride....never seen any pretty young girls like her driving any of the cars. Probably good that only old dudes live me were driving at the time.
I did manage to get an invite to see the shop and meet the supervisor where the cars are serviced. It was a bit of Model T heaven and was very interesting. Asked a lot of questions....one interesting thing I found out was the re-engineered transmission gear grind in the new 14's did not hold up and were replaced with standard gears. Also, the riveted gear case steering column's were replaced with later ones because the rivets loosened up. The model T's are driven a lot....much more that most of us do. Great place to find what holds up the best for them.
What does "re-engineered transmission gear grind" refer to?
The "T-100" cars were made with transmission gears cut to modern gear profiles. They were reportedly much quieter when new, but it sounds like they didn't hold up well.
That for those who don't recognize it is Greenfield Village. Where we all are not going this September. We also never see it this empty! Those drivers just drive and explain all day long!
You are correct....they did not hold up and were all changed back to stock.
Wonder why the riveted gear cases didn't hold up?
I'm glad they found that out early, as "back then" there was talk about making the "quiet transmission" gears available for everyone to "upgrade" to!
I'd love to see the maintenance shop.
I wonder how many modern upgrades they're using in the cars, like modern seals (to replace felt) and modern bearings, etc.
I loved everything about this clip the lady was competent and very courteous.
And the cellular telephone cameraman did a very good job.
Thank you John for posting it was wonderful .
