Beaverton, Oregon and Beyond from Todd’s Eyes – Going back in time


I had another idea of what to post on today when it came to “From Todd’s Eyes” today, but yesterday afternoon that all changed when it was 92 degrees here in the Portland area and I was at my brother’s place. I got the chance to go out in his 1916 Model T and enjoy the wind in my hair and see a lot of friendly people.

Model T through my eyes

Now, one thing I’ve always noticed is people always will honk and flip people off if they are not going the speed limit in front of them, they always seem to be in a hurry. But, to most people, those rules don’t apply when they are behind an old car. Everyone seems to understand that the classics just couldn’t get up to today’s’ speed limits. It wasn’t as hurried of a life and people don’t seem to mind looking at the classics and don’t care that it can’t go 30 mph.

So, here are some pictures of each of my family members getting their ride in my brothers Model T as well as a picture while we were driving. I do have to admit I wanted to take more pictures while driving, but I was really enjoying the ride and I completely forgot I even had the camera and only took the one as we were leaving the driveway.

What a great looking classic car.  Thanks for taking the time to sharing.

Posted by Richard Weeks, REALTOR®, Broker about 8 years ago

Its amazing how friendly people get when you drive a classic. Not so nice when you are in your regular car.

Posted by Rob D. Shepherd, Principal Broker ABR, GRI (Windermere/lane county) about 8 years ago

That's one sweet ride Todd! I just went to a classic car show here in Raleigh and all I can say is, they just don't make 'em like they used to.

And it looks like the day was just perfect for stepping back in time, Todd!

Hi Todd...now that's a real classic. Nice photos :O)

Posted by Fred Carver Personal Real Estate Corporation, Accredited Real Estate Consultant (RE/MAX Camosun Victoria BC Real Estate) about 8 years ago

In a car like that, it would be easy to forget that it was 92 degrees ... looks like a LOT of fun!

Posted by Cynthia Larsen, Independent Broker Serving Sonoma County, CA (Safe Haven Realty) about 8 years ago

Todd - Awesome pictures and you are absolutely right when classics like this are on the road nobody seems to care how slow they go.  In fact most of the time the other driver's slow down to look.

Posted by Michelle Gibson, REALTOR (Hansen Real Estate Group Inc. ) about 8 years ago

Todd now that looked like a good time.  There is no doubt life was so much more simple years ago.  I guess we have no one to blame but ourselves.

Posted by John Walters, Licensed in Louisiana (Frank Rubi Real Estate) about 8 years ago

Was it fun to drive or was it challenging? Looks like everyone enjoyed taking a ride inthe covertible!

Posted by Melissa Zavala, Broker, Escondido Real Estate, San Diego County (Broadpoint Properties) about 8 years ago

Hi Todd!
In my young years, B.D. (before driving), i always thought it would be fun to have a model t as my first car...until I realized it wasn't automatic transmission!

Posted by Paula Swayne, Realtor-Land Park, East Sac & Curtis Park -Dunniga (Dunnigan, Realtors, Sacramento (916) 425-9715) about 8 years ago

Okay, sorry, but 92 degres?  You're a wimp!!!!!  LOL

It was 112 today with a heat index of 122 because the humidity is up - so no sympathy for you. 

Since you made me jealous with that great ride, I thought I'd make you jealous about the weather, LOL.

What FUN!!!!!

Posted by Juli Vosmik, Scottsdale/Cave Creek, AZ real estate 480-710-0739 (Dominion Fine Properties) about 8 years ago

I love those old cars.

Posted by Tammie White, Broker, Franklin TN Homes for Sale (Franklin Homes Realty LLC) about 8 years ago

I do have to say that was a blast and being the center of attention was pretty nice also. (OK, maybe it was the car, but I was in it!)
