Ford Model T Enthusiasts – Kids Corner.

I’ve added a brand new section to the Ford Model T Enthusiasts site: Kids Corner.

Activities include; printable Coloring Pages and Word Searches, or try your hand at the Model T Simulator and learn how the Model T transmission works.

The page is also loaded with educational content – a great way to introduce your children to Henry Ford and his famous Model T!

Here’s the link… http://www.fordmodelt.net/kids-corner.htm  

Any feedback would be appreciated :-)

Ford Model T Enthusiasm Starts Young

Marcy writes…

“Here’s an uplifting post. My son absolutely loves Henry Ford and what he stands for and for essentially putting America on wheels. His first entry to a model show was his Model T – he won 1st place for his division.

 He is a future Model T(er). We began a picture book of him meeting kind owners of Model Ts and As that allow him to actually look and touch. It’s been a wonderful experience. ”

My 1925 Ford Model T at Old Bar Beach Festival 2016

So yesterday my amazing an ever supportive wife Shae enjoyed the sunny weather, over priced hot chips, market stalls and of course the show n shine at Old Bar Beach Festival :) I’d say there were at least 100 cars there, not including the large turnout of Kombi vans. As always we took my 1925 Ford Model T to show…

Club West Show n Shine – Rural Fire Service Fundraiser

My ever-supportive and amazing wife Shae and myself took my 1925 Ford Model T along to the inaugural Club West Show n Shine today, raising funds for the Kundle/Moto Rural Fire Service, weather was rather windy, but at least it didn’t rain!!

There were approximately thirty-five cars all told, and about 10 motorbikes. Only one or two others besides myself were at the show from our club, as it was the inaugural show, and also since it clashed with at least two other shows on the same day, including the Mount George Public School birthday celebrations, and I understand there was also a show on at Killabakh.

The RFS put on a sausage sizzle for lunch, and the local kids were invited to play with the fire hoses on the fire truck which was on display – much to their enjoyment!

The Rural Fire Service NSW plans to make this show an annual event, with sponsors already lined up for next year’s event, and hopefully a larger selection of categories.

On the way home in the Model T, Shae held my phone with a Speedometer app running, and I achieved a new record top speed! 64km/h :) … yes alright it was down hill… with a tail wind!

Ford Model T – Motoring over Mount Chiliad (Grand Theft Auto V)

You may have seen an earlier video I published, originally filmed in 1911, showing a 1910 Ford Model T conquering Ben Nevis in Scotland. Using a beautifully detailed modification to the well known computer game Grand Theft Auto 5, in the form of a 1910 Ford Model T touring car, I’ve attempted to recreate this epic mountain climb (albeit on a computer and with the absence of snow!!).

Mount Chiliad in the game is based on Mount Shasta in California. 

The only thing really wrong with the in-game Model T is the ridiculously high top-speed, and the decidedly V8 sounding engine!!
