At one point, half the cars on the planet were Model T s. Ford has made just half a dozen of its latter-day T s, though it could possibly build more.

We can’t think of a street rod or custom car award with a more exacting set of judging standards than the Detroit Autorama’s Ridler Award. Those judges scrutinize every inch of the eligible cars. The Lokar Performance Products/STREET RODDER Driven Award has a shorter list of criteria, but we take it just as seriously. The winning car has to be cool, but—equally…

Ford Model t Color

When the Model T Ford was introduced, consumers were thrilled - who cared if it didn t have a roof or windshield wipers? It was better than a horse and buggy, and completely altered the transportation industry. The only catch was the color, which prompted the famous line, Any color you want, as long as it s black.

­The classic American hot rod era lasted from 1945 to about 1965. Like Baja Bugs, classic hot rods required significant modification by their owners. Unlike Bu­gs, however, which are built on Volkswagen chassis, hot rods were built on a variety of old, often historical, car models: Cars manufactured before 1945 were considered ideal fodder for hot rod transformations…

Over the years, I ve owned, or had the opportunity to drive, a few cars that I think could best be described as a handful to drive. However, after reading a short feature article in the July 2009 edition of Car and Driver titled, How to: Drive a Ford Model T, I now realize that no car I ve ever driven can compare.
