I don't do much driving at night, but if i had this road, I just might give it a go.
I believe I see some dimming and flickering. Loose ground?
Down under winter dusk & washboard road patches.
I have to admit i would have been more than a little concerned as a driver at the 5:25 mark when it started to run pretty poorly. But like a true T, it got its owner home.
Enjoyed the ride. Thanks for sharing.
Is it just me or does it look like the passenger's headlight is maladjusted.It is hitting the ground a good 10 feet before the Driver's headlight (assuming this is a right hand drive car)
Imagine riding that path on horseback. Thanks Henry for making the model T affordable for us poor folk. By the way anyone know the cost of a 1927 touring car? Nice video I enjoyed the ride. John how did you mount your camera to get such a smooth video?
Aww heck, the real fun is after you've had your acetylene headlamps going nicely on what would be a 45 minute run at dusk turning dark only to have your tank run out of acetylene! 5 miles pitch black running is pretty exciting!
This video is grand! Thank you for sharing it.
I love nocturnal excursions in my Model T. It would be fun to make videos, alas, I do not possess the equipment.
That was neat. Thx for posting
Bill if you have as much as a smartphone, you can make good videos. They're huge files though, so often sending them on takes a little bit of work. I'm amazed how long it took for me to upload a couple of T rides to You Tube a while back. And they weren't more than two minutes long either.
Notice the sky? I think that was at dusk or dawn.
I had a friend visit and one evening I asked him if he would like a ride in the T. We went about 100' and turned back. Couldn't see where we were going. I bought some repro reflectors and they are Chrome plated, not silver. The lenses are also purple from sun. They look good at daytime, but don't cast much light.
When we took a tour in El Centro last March, we attended a member's barbecue for dinner. It was dark when we returned to the motel. However, we had one modern car in the front of the pack going about 35 MPH and one in the rear with flashers. We all returned safely.
Anyway, if you are going to drive at night, be sure that you can see AND be seen.
Wes, imagine riding that road on horse back and having a screaming model T come over one of those hills! Great video John. I love driving the back roads at night. Thanks for sharing. Felt like I was riding along.
Drive safe and often
Thanks for the suggestion. I only have a dumb phone as I am not smaht enuf to have me one of them smaht fones. Thankful to have indoor plumbin' and 'lectricity. Bill
