This has to be one of the best videos on driving the Tin Lizzie from a back-seat. But I have a question:

Does anyone know, if Greenfield Village mechanics use a stock muffler on T's? That's such a nice exhaust sound on tape and in person.

Thanks,
Jim

I looked at a couple, they had different ends on the mufflers. They looked like the cast ends Langs sells or even like they had deflectors on the outlets.

They probably use the exhaust deflector to avoid heating up the rear axle since those cars get run all day.

I was out there in June and took a ride in one of their t's, asked a bunch of questions. I was told that they made a fleet of cars from scratch each costing $250,000 none to be resold. They have special rear axle gears, and throttle stops to limit top speed and make starting and stopping easier. Everything is new, engine block, all the internals... all it takes is money.
