A while ago we had a thread with Julie attempting to crank the Model K. This is her yesterday after a few more lessons:

There is always that exhilaration the first time you pull the crank and the motor actually starts, I bet she never forgets that. Good Job!

Now you did it! Next thing you know she will want to work outside the home, or vote ! Beautiful car!

Good luck getting to drive now Rob! Now it will be out of gas everytime you want to take it out.

Yup, what Dallas said. She was already comfortable driving the K, now that she can start it, good luck getting it back :-)

Not a problem (her driving all the time). Now I can fly the drone while she drives. More videos with my excellent music choices....... :-)

Julie may be the only woman alive who can say she has crank started, and drove a Model K.

Now that's impressive - most likely a "keeper" there, Rob !

She can't have it. Rob already promised it to one of his daughters. Julie will have to be happy with the TT.

Love seeing intrepid ladies wielding old machinery. :-)

Congratulations to you both! I look forward to your drone capturing some really cool shots of the K tooling around the countryside.
