You'll have to log in to facebook and look at the model Model T chassis - turn on the sound.
He shouldn't start it by pushing on the crank; if the timing is set wrong and it kicks he could get a small blister or something, lol.
Oh, the talent some humans have !!
Incidentally - I was able to view the video without logging in (I don't do Facebook) - had to click on the little triangle a couple of times, though.
Mini-T, engine works.
Here's a link directly to the video:

So who says there isn't magic we haven't seen yet?
After a HARD DAY, this video really made me smile. I WANT ONE!
Simply amazing craftsmanship!
Wow amazing. but his cranking technique right handed and thumb on top.
Even sounds like a T !
What the?!? How, but, but,..uh....speechless.
Some of you may remember Edgar Roy's 1/6th scale Simplex models that also ran. He made them in the late 50's-early 60's.
What I found most amazing about that T is the engine runs at "da real thing" speeds.
The hardest part of engine modeling is getting them to run like the real thing rather than 10,000 rpms.
It's a work of art if ever there was one.
Can you imagine how small things like nuts and bolts and the carb needle and seat must be? A Swiss jeweler hasn't got anything on this guy!
Impressive. Wouldn't believe it if hadn't seen it.
How awesome! Did you notice though that he was cranking with his right arm and had his thumb over the top of the crank handle.
PRICELESS work of art, one of one, the detailed craftsmanship was AMAZING !!!
Now that words like awesome ,amazing and incredible have been trivialized by regular use to describe every mundane thing, what terms do you attribute to something like this? I don't see how this is even possible.
There are always the blue-blood words typically reserved for art and automobile auction catalogs. Superlative, mercurial, inimitable, inspirational.
Thanks Z! Those are fantastic!
Am I missing the point? A freaking huge giant likes to play with a restored T model chassis. Finding shoes for someone that huge would really be amazing!
