1924 Model T Ford- Teaching me to drive the thing

trying to drive the 1924 Model T Ford (3.30 minute mark).. it aint easy,
folks... the pedals are NOT where you think they should be.... and forgive
that i was chubby in this vid... it was temporary.
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.

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.
Hand crank start
Filmed at Norgesløpet 2008 in Hamar, Norway. It sure is an American car
from the 1930's but I don't know which brand it is. The cars all looked the
same back than, too. It is an impressive task to start it by muscle power,

Ford Model T Half engine
I cut this T model Ford engine in half in 1957 using 11 hacksaw blades.
The only part not cut with the hacksaw was the camshaft as it was too hard
and had to ground through.
First Start for 1923 Model T barn car
This '23 Model T had not been run in decades. Pulled the engine and gave it
a full rebuild, then re- installed and overhauled the chassis with mostly
used Model T parts. The car will be kept in the original rusty condition,
as pulled from the barn......but she runs now!
Last licensed in 1948, Ford Model T's like this were popular with farmers.
This was originally a touring car, but the back seat part of the body and
the convertible top was tossed, and a homemade wooden bed put on to carry
produce to market.
