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!!

How to Start a Ford Model T in Cold Weather

So I thought it was about time I published a video on the age-old trick to starting a Model T Ford in cold weather conditions.

It was about 7 degrees Celsius (about 44 degrees Fahrenheit) when I recorded this video, with a completely cold engine; not previously started that day – enjoy the video :)

FordModelT.net goes mobile (update)

Thanks for the comments everyone, I’ve done an upgrade since that screenshot was taken, there’s now a new, easier to use menu system, with the familiar “three dash” menu button at the top left of the screen, and it appears on every page, so there’s no need to return to the home page to get to the menu. 

Simply access the site from your iPhone, Windows Phone or Android smart phone to view the mobile version. 


If you can’t get it to work, simply enter the mobile URL: (Might look funny on a computer or tablet)


Let me know what you think guys…

My 1925 Ford Model T – at Motorfest 2016

Sunday 12th June 2016, my wonderful wife Shae and I went to Great Lakes Nissan Motor Fest… the weather was a little patchy but mostly fine, and there was a large collection of very nice cars.

Shae and I also had our picture taken for the local paper; the Manning River Times

FordModelT.net goes mobile

So I’m finally getting this website up to date – it’s gone mobile!

With more and more people these days owning smartphones, I figured it only logical to make this site accessible via mobile.

Try it out!

It’s not 100% finished yet but it’s getting there.

Simply go to the website on your smartphone.
