A sad story from May 7, 2005. The driver and passenger of the Model A were killed when the driver of Titan failed to yeild when making a left turn. The eldery couple was returning home from an antique car event. Several other friends drove past the wreck in their own classic cars.
The driver died at the scene. The passenger, his wife died at the hospital. Seats belts might have allowed for a different out come, but were not installed in the Model A. Because of the age of the vehicle, seat belts were not required.
I do not know if the driver of the Titan was later charged with anything.

Short running video of Model A hot rod
This is my coupe, running after being taken out of winter storage. I film
the car and then start it. My Uncle behind the camera can be heard saying

stands just in case it decides to hook-up, however. I slid it into Park to
