Could this fit a Model T?

Post by DLodge » Wed Oct 14, 2020 11:59 am

This was posted to a British Austin group. It originally appeared in a New Zealand Austin magazine. How much work would it take to adapt it to a T? :D

The 3 Prong Blivit was featured on the cover of MAD magazine March 1965.

It was first published in The American Journal of Psychology in 1964 as the Impossible Trident also called the Impossible Fork, Devil's Tuning Fork, Devil's Pitch Fork and Blivet according to www.illusionsindex.org.
Yes, I have several in my tool box.

It would work if you lived in a Dr Seuss story.

As far as model T's go, I did run into some problems like that when I rewooded my Touring body.

That plates thing John Warren posted is simply bizarre! I have done it twice now. Worked both times. I can usually focus my eyes and cheat those tricky pictures, but not that one.

All this stuff has an amazing way to trick us. The plate thing is definitely strange.
