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.
