Porter Mufflers on a Flathead Ford
Porter Mufflers on a 1948 Ford Flathead. www.portermufflers.com Nice sound,
excellent quality. Made in the USA. The system we had to build was complex
because of the air ride system on the car, but it has plenty of ground
clearance and sounds great. Be sure to check out the greatest weekend

Ford Model T Railcar at the WW&F Railway Museum
This Ford Model T inspection vehicle was built by the Monson Railroad in
Monson, Maine. It was loaned out by the Boothbay Railway Village to the
WW&F for one of their big open house events in August of 2002. More on the
Boothbay Railway Village at http://www.railwayvillage.org/
The Wiscasset, Waterville, and Farmington Railway was a two-foot gauge
common carrier railroad that operated in the early part of the 1900's, up
until 1933 when the railroad ceased operations. The line ran from Wiscasset
in the south, to Albion and Winslow in the north. The Museum is located at
the site of the old Sheepscot station, with mainline track running north
from Cross Road, on the original roadbed.
They are laying track like there's no tomorrow, and have gone past the next
station in Alna Center which has been recreated with a run-around so that
they can finally run with the engine in the front both ways. Another
fantastic place for the whole family. Filmed in August 2002. More info on

In this video, we take a detailed look at the Ford Model T transmission,
afterwards taking a look at the correct procedure for pulling away,
forwards and backwards, and also correct braking.
I imported my 1925 Ford Model T from the USA, not far from Detroit,
Michigan where it was built.
The Model T was manufactured between 1908 and 1927, and was know by various
names including Tin Lizzie, Flivver, T‑Model Ford, or just 'T'.
The Model T set 1908 as the historic year that the automobile became
popular. It is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, the
car that opened travel to the common middle-class American; some of this
was because of Ford's innovations, including assembly line production
instead of individual hand crafting.
On May 26, 1927, Henry Ford watched the 15 millionth Model T Ford roll off
the assembly line at his factory in Highland Park, Michigan.

1925 Ford Model T Coupe
This Model T was a Connecticut 'barn find' in April 2012, and had been
sitting since 1976. The car is all original and unrestored and will be
kept as a "driver" in its original condition.

How to start up and drive a 1925 Ford Model T
While still in the Ely neighborhood of Fairlee, Vermont, we get a quick
lesson on how to start up and drive a 1925 Ford Model T. I am not sure how
comprehensive a lesson it is, but I think with a bit of practice, I could
drive this car. Once the car is started, we take a drive down Old Federal
Route 5, which has been truncated, since the new Route 5 was built in the
1930's. The road is also unpaved, which I am sure is the way its been for
years. Imagine being on this road 80 years ago and seeing this car coming
along down the road; this would have been a pretty common sight. At the
end of the road, we turn around in a neighbors driveway, where we see a
couple of newer, yet vintage, cars. I am not sure what the white car is,
but the Chevrolet pick-up looks like it's from the 1960's. Enjoy the view
from the car, as well as the lesson on starting and driving it. If you
have any questions about the video, feel free to message me. Comments are
welcome. The video was taken on August 25th, 2013.
