For the first time ....

I got to document in images & video the passing of a Model T from one generation to the other - Father to Son - including the first driving lesson.

Saturday was a great day !

Father Rich in Lake Oswego, OR at pickup



Gary arrives from Camarillo shortly after the 1923 Touring T is unloaded - both Eric & Becky ( Eric's wife ) were raised around cars but had no experience owning or driving a Model T - to help save Rich a trip down I reached out to KD for a referral in the area - turns out I had picked up a 1915 Touring T from Gary after Bakersfield Swap - we got together to help out the new owners



Eric with the two younger Grandkids



After showing Becky & Eric a few pointers - Rich is on the phone advising Gary about the idiosyncrasies of this particular T



Houston we have ignition !

With Gary behind the wheel - the Model T driving lesson begins - they take off for a few spins around the neighborhood - on the last trip Eric is behind the wheel ..... :-)




I have more images & a few videos posted on my Instagram & Facebook accounts.

Turns out both Rich & Eric work from home for the same company - Becky has been a school teacher for (16) years & currently teaches 3rd grade.

Big Thank you to Gary for spending a few hours on a Saturday to show this new Model T Family the ropes ..... :-)
