Yesterday I visited Donnie Brown for a tour and a driving lesson. The man has forgotten more about the history of the Ford Motor Company than I'll ever know. We toured his property along with his toys and finished the day with a driving lesson. We worked on low band and reverse only and I had to learn the basics of "Don't slip the Band". He has a fine car and it was an honor being allowed to drive it. I feel I will be able to drive my T once Mike W, Gets finished with it. Thanks!
Curtis. Having help from the experienced is always good. Especially one it comes from what I consider "one of the greats". Glad you got the experience of talking to Donnie, as well as driving his car. I would love to tour his place, so jealous.
In both cases, you're in good hands.
What Steve said.
You guys will make my head swell up if ya'll keep talking like that .. Was nice to meet Curtis and his friend who came with him. I think Curtis did real well for his first driving lesson. I think he has been bitten pretty hard by the T bug. So he may be with us for awhile. It was a chilly day in Arkansas but by the afternoon we were able to take a short drive thru the dirt roads around my house to give me a chance to point out things he would be doing while driving his car. Then a good driving lesson around the field for Curtis. It sounds like his car is a pretty nice car, and with Mike giving it a good "go-over" He should be good to go soon.
Getting the old Sport Touring ready to go.

Why do some pictures post sideways when they are upright in my picture folder. ????
Is it a phone picture? They seem to be prone to that sort of thing. I've never had a photo from a camera do that.
Steve, I think they were phone pictures. They were taken by Curtis's friend.
When you are lucky enough to get Donnie Brown, Mike Walker and Steve Jelf in the same pot. Just think of all the good information that can be poured out. If they tell you a rooster can pull a wagon, just hook him up.
They could do it years ago!
They can even do it now!
Donnie the camera puts in exif data which tells the picture it's orientation until you change the data it reverts to original orientation when moved from it's folder. Here you go.
