Spent the weekend driving the T around. Took the kid ice skating, enjoyed the snowfall and used it to run errands all over town. And today I took my boy to school and then drive it into work.

How are you getting the corrosive ice melting chemicals off? I'm always afraid that all the seams, nooks and crannies will corrode to nothing. You have a nice original looking car. Great photos. Thanks for sharing them.

I thought about the salt and chemicals for about one minute. Then I decided this car was made to be driven so I'm driving it. You are right that it is nice, original looking, and that's why I feel ok driving it. It's not a restored trailer queen. I really hope I don't do much damage but it is just a blast to drive around town.

You took some nice pictures. I appreciate your decision to drive the car. We drive two Ts on the treated roads in the winter. The enjoyment my family gets out-ways the work of restoring or replacing the parts should that be necessary. I have other cars I would not subject to this. It is a choice we can make.
It sure looks like you had fun.
Rich

The snow kept falling so I went out to play again. Stopped at a couple local historic spots, including the ice skating pond I was at yesterday.

Also, finally was able to accomplish something that I've waited for snow to be able to try. It is possible to drift a Model T. It was hard with a sticking Low Gear pedal, but I was able to hang the car out for over half a block. I'm sure some folks on here will scold me for it, but I'll bet it's not the first time this car has been treated "poorly".

John, That last photo looks like it could maybe be a cover for The Vintage Ford. Bravo for braving the elements. Jim
