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 .....
