Red letter day!

What a busy day, travelled down to Essex to drive a Ford Model T. Some things are worth making an effort to do and this was one of them. Although it was completely unlike anything I’ve ever driven it was (or could be, with practice) surprisingly easy to drive.

Just studying the Model T was an education. Here was a car that was not only affordable to buy but simple and robust. No need for specialist care – a competent blacksmith could probably make replacements for any metal part that broke. It is a world away from the elaboration of new cars and so much better for it.
