Taking my 1911 Model T for a spin

Post by Pete Ratledge » Fri Sep 06, 2019 8:10 am

I just returned from the Cookville Tour and my granddaughter's boyfriend made this video and posted it on YouTube. I wanted to take one last ride before I cleaned it up for Hershey.

Enjoy!

I still can't figure out how you can tour as much as you do and still keep that '11 in immaculate condition!

Peter, great video and georgeous car. What is that small black box on the drivers side rear view mirror. Is it a switch for left or right blinkers? Courious Frank

Frank, That is a switch for turn signals and flashing lights on the back. It is made for a bicycle and it is wire less. It is easy to take off when I go to a car show.

Pete

Wonderful!

That boyfriend did a marvelous job on the video, and the music too! Great scenes traveling off road.

See you in Hershey!

That was a great video. I watched it while eating my lunch, made for a good lunch stop. See you at Hershey next month.

Pete- The boyfriend did a great job on the video. I gave him a Thumbs Up.
And, those Delaware backroads make the backroads in Tennessee look like Interstate highways. :P
