Ford Model T

I accompanied my darling on one of her garage sailing ventures and came across this little beauty:

I cannot help but wonder whether the car went through a bit of a renovation at sometime during its life. However that may be, it is a beautiful and very authentic looking little truck. It underlines the fact that coolness often becomes more so with age.


About Joseph de Lange

Before retirement worked in art galleries, a photo studio, offices, and the trades. Don't travel much anymore but still photograph. For the past 5 years 95% of my photography is done with the phone. My prediction for big cameras: DSLRs and their beautiful lenses and even the smaller mirrorless cameras will be mostly a historical footnote in the not too distant future.

  1. This is a gem! What fun it would be to drive this.

    • It would be an experience Angeline. Remember that this is before double clutching (which is how I learned to drive in army jeeps) and there is definitely a learning curve involved.

      • I learned to drive in an old Volkswagen bus with a long stick shift like this one, out on dirt roads in Mexico. This was a long time ago.

        • The past century with its variety of driving experiences already fades into distance and dimness. I remember driving a tank into a hangar through a wall rather than through the entrance. At that time I learned that the army has a very low sense of humor. Just reflecting on the driving lessons of a 16 year old over 50 years ago and the good times that went with it.
