"I MADE A MISTAKE!"
55psi only applies to clincher tyres on earlier Model T's. Since mine is a 1925 model and has split rims and balloon tyres, the correct tyre pressure is 35psi.
I imported my 1925 Ford Model T from the USA, not far from Detroit, Michigan where it was built.
In this video I demonstrate the T's unusual controls and how they all work, I show you how to start a Model T, and I take you on a short drive at the end.
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.
The Ford Model A as a Daily Driver for a Year
Jonathan Klinger's coworkers thought he was bluffing when he said he wanted
to drive a Ford Model A every day for a year -- including winter ... in
northern Michigan. But he followed through, and he's been doing it in a
project he calls "365 Days of A," documenting his progress on a blog of the
same name. RoundAbout host Craig Cole went for a walkaround of the Model A
that Jonathan's been driving for nearly a year.

The first car ever running live! The Benz Motorwagen (1885)
This is rare footage of the world's first car's engine igniting & running.
After developing a successful gas-powered two-stroke piston engine in 1873,
Karl Benz focused on developing a motorized vehicle. His Patent Motorwagen
(or Motor Car), introduced in 1886, is widely regarded as the first
purpose-built automobile, that is a vehicle designed from the ground up to
be motorized. Benz unveiled it officially on July 3, 1886 on the
Ringstraße in Mannheim, Germany. The vehicle was patented with German

Everyone's been celebrating Henry Ford's 150th birthday by talking about
the successes of the company he founded. What about the, well not so much.
With Leo Parente, whose stories of working for Ford during the 1970s are
worth the price of admission.
1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.
