What a total and utter thrill, after flying all over the world to test the best technology mankind has devised, to drive one in its 100th year that scores only 10 out of 100!
Is this a Brit version?
The picture gives it away immediately that it’s an early Model ‘T’ Ford which revolutionised early car manufacture when a production line started up in the States in 1907. My 1912 test car is from the Old Trafford plant in Manchester, built during its second year of operation.
Can it still thrill?
The model I was doing my best to keep in a staight line, will be 100 next year, but has seriously retained its skill to thrill. It might have been my worst total score, times seven, but was probably the most thrilling and scary drive of my life.
