A friend of mine snapped this shot of my car one night while we were out. We decided early on that I should stop drinking early since he didn't know how to drive the T.

I always wondered how you could be impaired and manage to drive a Model T? There's an awful lot going on that needs be done reasonably well to drive one of these things.

I hate to admit that I researched drinking and driving a Model T for a brief period of my youth. I can't remember much difference either way.
Please don't tempt fate.
Today's traffic is less forgiving.

Had to laugh at your comments (Richard & Val) BUT, they are very true. Been there, done that in my younger days.

I am in awe of anyone who will drive their T on public roads. Those people are crazy out there! Mine will stay in the communities private roads. My biggest worries are the deer.

I try and drive mine everywhere. I take my son to school, drive it to work. Take it to the next towns over (8 miles away). Stock lights, stock brakes. I drive VERY aware, always planning an escape route, never letting anything distract me. Driving becomes the foremost thing. Cell phone use while driving? Hell, sometimes I tell passengers to stop talking so I can concentrate in heavy traffic. The first couple of weeks of driving it, I actually got a headache from thinking so much while driving. Now it just feels natural, the feet and hands just do what they are supposed to do.

Neat you drive your T where you do. I'm lucky I live in the country and have nice lightly traveled black top roads.
I always get a little nervous when a car running up from behind me when I'm running around 30-40.
Would I drive in town or on main highways? No way. T's don't accelerate or have real brakes to run with modern cars in heavy to medium traffic. But that's me.

I'm with John Chady...I drive my Ts everywhere, for everything. As long as it's not pouring down rain or snowing! I do stay off the 4-lane divided highways, but frankly they're probably actually safer than any 2-lane road any day!
