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.
The Model T Ford Register of Great Britain visit the Anson Engine Museum

register of Great Britain' (http://www.modeltregister.co.uk/index.html)
organised a tour called 'Buxton and Beyond' this comprised a drive over
fine Peak District hills for coffee at the Trafford Park Heritage centre,
visiting the site of the 1911 Ford factory, birthplace of all our English
Model Ts. We will then move on to the Anson Engine Museum in Poynton for
lunch and then over the famous Cat and Fiddle Pass back to Buxton. this is
a video of the cars arriving and departing the Anson Engine Museum

Canada's Worst Driver - S06E07
Original airdate: December 6, 2010
The Trough -- The challenge from Canada's Worst Driver 5 returns. In
this course, the contestant must drive a car atop a series of concrete
barriers placed on their side. Contestants must remain on the concrete at
all times; if the car slips off or gets stuck, the contestants must start
over. Lance is unable to go through the course in the one-hour time limit.
Jamie makes it across on her third try after panicking on her first two
attempts. Because of the nature of the course, Andrew must accompany Brad.
He makes it about three feet from the end in the final run before running
out of time and scraping the bottom of the truck. John also sits out on
Dale's run due to extreme heat, and Dale promptly gets herself stuck
Distracted Driving -- The annual lesson on why distracted driving
(especially texting while driving) should not be done has contestants drive
a figure-eight course while doing many things at the same time. Dale, who
had driven straight through her garage door on one occasion, gets the point
easily. Jamie, the contestant from the only province where there is no ban
on cell phone use while driving (at the time of taping; a ban is in effect
at the time of airing), has never done this, and has never tried this
herself. She agrees to try, with predictably disastrous results. Brad, who
does not own a phone, tries instead to apply lipstick instead, with
similarly destructive results. Lance doesn't get the point, though, when he
is told to apply lipstick, eat, and drink while behind the wheel.
Canada's Worst Cup -- In a variation on last year's Shopping Cart
Hockey challenge, the contestants must push an oversized soccer ball across
a soccer pitch with a car. The ball may bounce off any number of foam
defenders, but the car may not hit any of them. Furthermore, the car may
not cross a white line when shooting at the goal. Dale has trouble
controlling the ball initially, but manages to score 8 goals in 15 minutes.
Lance repeatedly hits the foam goaltender, and only gets four goals in his
run. Brad accidentally injures Donna in the passenger seat in his run, and
thus is disqualified with four minutes left in his run. Jamie complains to
Eric about talking too much in her run, but she manages to tie Dale for the
win with 8 goals.
The Handbrake J-Turn -- The contestants must take on the traditional
challenge in the Camaro
this year (but at 60 km/h). Jamie picks up the lesson quickly, but is too
nervous come challenge time, and hits the foot brakes repeatedly, and fails
her set 7 runs. Again, Andrew will accompany Brad on his run due to Donna's
injuries and the nature of the challenge, and Andrew makes Brad do a few
dry run before making his attempts. Brad manages to pass after three
attempts (the first two failing due to hitting the foot brake), but Cam is
quick to discount Brad's accomplishment as in his mind Andrew had
overstepped his bound by helping too much. Before Lance's run, though, the
rain hits, and so Andrew tells Lance to never accelerate above 70 km/h due
to hydroplaning concerns (though Andrew also adds that the course speed
limit is now lowered to the standard 50 km/h due to the rain). Lance fails
his first three runs by triggering both the handbrake and footbrake before
making the turn, and then fails his next three by triggering the handbrake
too late. Lance then fails his last chance by failing to find the hand
brake (as he had taken his hand off of it). Dale's 7 runs all have her
triggering the foot brake (and some of them by hitting the obstacles en
route to the turning obstacle), prompting her to think that this is beyond
Neither Dale or Lance are graduating for sure by their own admissions.
Jamie admits that Brad is the better driver, but Brad believes that he's
bound for the final three. The experts are again split on who to let go. In
another 3-2 split decision, Jamie takes the prize, meaning that she can
avoid driving Andrew around Niagara Falls, and avoid being named Canada's

Gardens during the depression)

Lada hand crank start
I made an attempt of starting my Lada with a hand crank, and it went
smoother than I'd thought. It was unstarted for a week. The preparations I
did before starting, was removing the license plate to access the hole in
the bumper, turning on the ignition and pulling the choke out fully. Of
course I also checked that it was not in gear =)
Old tractors never die! Ursus vs. Land Rover.
This film its just a little joke. Many vehicles -many uses. Tractor is
used to plow the field, all-terrain car used to efficiently off-road move.
Be aware of the differences. Different gears, tyres, motors and many
things... remember that! This is not sugestion who is better. I like all
vintage, off-road machines.
