Hello,

The snow has finally arrived in France.
After a mild autumn, winter has finally arrived.
Saturday morning woke up, we finally see that stinks snow had fallen. So, like every year with my brother Fabien, we exit the Ford Model T garage for a little test on snow. The conditions were difficult but with -7 ° c (19 ° f).
What a pleasure to ride on small snowy roads, although it was very cold.

To you continue with your Ford does in the snow

“A bientôt”

Olivier http://www.ford-t.fr

It's always fun to try to figure backwards from the machine translation of Olivier's messages. In this case, I was really puzzled by "stinks snow." It hit me, though, that he may have made a typing error. The French word "peu" means "a little" and the word "pue" means "stinks."

Olivier, est-ce que tu as voulu dire "un peu de neige" mais tu as écrit "un pue de neige"?

As you say, cold but fun.

Dick

OK, sorry for the mistake, I hope you will correct this bad translation. The automatic translators are not always reliable.

Thank you Dick

Olivier

There's nothing to apologize for, Olivier. I enjoyed hearing about Fabien and you driving in the snow.

Olivier's car is much different from what we see on this side of the Atlantic. The body is much like a 26-7 but with earlier fenders and a different windshield. I like the spare tire carrier too.

For those that don't know:
That strange '24 T is in France. It has a French built body.
The young fellow that owns it found it and restored the whole car by himself with very little help.
The back seat is removable and there is a tail gate that opens.
I believe when he found it it had words painted on the sides that showed it was used as a meat truck.
I have always liked that car. I had it for my desk-top picture for about a year.
Olivier is a great promoter of the model T Ford.

I forgot to mention Olivier's car has two doors on the right side and none on the left.
