Here is a short video of driving to the Glow Worm Tunnel west of Sydney. It's a nice bumpy road, perfect for Model Ts.

I gotta bump this Andrew! Yes, I realize it's Wednesday already. I grabbed my phone and watched that very short video and want to see more!
Great sounds! I'll look at it again right now! Ahhh. Placated for a bit. :-)
Thanks! I needed that!
Mark, that pic is outstanding! In color or non, what a great photo! Beautiful automobiles. :-)

Dave,

I've watched the video twice now. I didn't see any glow worms either. Thought I might have missed them the first time. Very disappointed.

I like seeing cars like that--obviously driven and enjoyed. None of this "Don't touch" foolishness. Thanks for sharing.

Hey now...my otherwise "don't touch" looking '13 for example gets driven a good 2,000 miles and more a year! I just strive to keep 'em nice is all. Not foolishness, just a love affair. And I like the "driven hard" cars just as much.

The tunnel shown in the video is not the tunnel where the glow worms are; that's some distance away and not accessible by car. Given the heat of the day and it was a 2km walk, we didn't get that far.
It was a great day driving the cars in the conditions they were made for, and they handled the constant corrugations and potholes in the hot and dusty conditions extremely well.
There was a certain irony watching people cautiously driving their modern vehicles (many of which were 4WD) along the dirt and bumps as we went full throttle in the Model T's.

Wonder why it took so long to load, so I started over.
