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.

1909 Cadillac First Start in 79 Years
This 1909 Cadillac was stripped down into a speed car, raced and then parked in 1934. I was acquired in the early 1960's for restoration. The restoration was put on hold for many years and then re-started a few years ago. After multple checks of the ignition and timing we finally achieved the first start on July 28, 2012. There is still more to do to tune the engine and sort it out for driving later this year. The spray on the first try happened when we left the primer cups open. It runs better with them closed. And the owner did make it a bit easier by adding an electric starter to the car. For more of the story see the HCCA Gazette, May - June 2009. To see how things turned out, see the related video, 1909 Cadillac first drive at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEy0KagVrIw





My 1925 Ford Model T - How to Start & How to Drive
Enthusiasts Website: http://www.fordmodelt.net/ Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/modeltford/ Update 10 Aug 2012: My Model T has been fully restored, and I've just purchased a pair of carriage lights which the car was missing. Updated video to come. Update: "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.

River Cars
Farmers used to push old cars down into the banks hoping to hold them in place. It was legal "back then" of course.The price of scrap steel was not much back then and this seemed a good use for them. Some of those cars were push by walls of water in big down pours, pushed down to the river. Others were put directly on the river bank to help stop the river encroaching any further onto a farmers river bottom ground as the river would always change its course through the years and sometime in a few hours...It was legal back then, of course not anymore. These cars and trucks have had more miles of river pass them than they have driven combined.

1914 Ford Model T
This cool car has been in the family for some 50 years, The story is my Grandpa pulled it out of a chicken coop where it sat for some time in the 50's. He went through it and restored it. ( the horn is Not original )





Me and my dad see my dad's old car for the first time in 20 years.
He sold the car over 20+ years ago when he was an alcoholic. Said he probably would have died in it. This is the first time he saw it since he sold it over 20+ years ago. The car does look in relative good shape, we have no idea what has been done with the car over the past 20 years. It obviously wasn't sitting there for 20 years and nobody claims it to be. Pay attention, people. 1964 Buick Rivera. 425 Wildcat V8 w/ 427 horsepower.
