ANOTHER VIEW


A few of my fellow bloggers wanted to see the car "attached" to the steering Wheel I posted for ABC Wednesday. So here it is. I think its a pretty snazzy touring car. I love the crank in the front to get the 1925 Ford going.
Enlarging this shot really helps see all the detail.

c'etait donc une vieille Ford, elle est superbement bien conservé et a une couleur originale. Démarrage à la manivelle, il fallait être courageux ;o).

so this was an old Ford, it is superbly well preserved and has a color original. Starting the crank, he had to be courageous ;o).

Those cranks in the front if it still works and they were the only way you could start a model T and some Model A's, would quickly break either your arm or your elbow if the car backfired when you twisted the crank and didn't disengage it properly or if it didn't disengaged itself. When the car backfired you are cranking one direction and the car backfires and goes the other way instantly with your hand still holding on to the handle. It either breaks you are or elbow or sometimes the hand and wrist.

I suspect this one is just there for decoration. It looks nice.

br>Thanks for your visit to my Brookville Daily Photo blog this morning. I hope you enjoyed my post today showing the baby rabbit eating the poppy leaves.

I also wrote a longer piece on my Better Blog Writing about my Mom and Dad. See if you like the writing style. It is popular among better blogs.

Last evening, it was almost dark, when one of the baby rabbits came up to our patio door and wanted in. I was flabbergasted but only took a picture and didn't leave him come in the house.

I wanted you to know I stopped-in to repay your visit and leave a you a comment.

I enjoyed reading your blog post for today and I thought your photography was excellent.

Vow, vow, vow! And yes, you are right, click and enlarge is the way to go with this beauty. ;-)
I wonder if that snazzy raspberry pink is the original color.

Interesting to hear Old Man Lincoln's description of the cranking process.

Neat to see what was in front of that steering "w"heel...

Have you ever tries cranking one of those ancient cars? It almost pulls your arm off when it finally starts!

Ben said...

I was wandering this too.
Thanks for posting this and it's gorgeous.

This one has certainly been turned into a work of art. I imagine it will also have all the mod cons of modrn motoring

Bear Naked said...

That car is beautiful!
It is one of my dreams to own an historical vehicle one day and that one would definitely be at the top of my list.
Thank you for showing us the *complete* picture.

This is the kind of "hot rod" that I grew up appreciating. These days the young people tend to work with little cars like Honda Accords and Civics, but I have to give the showmanship banner to the ones like you have pictured here.
