Using the Model "T" Ford was an idea that we got from Mr. Drake. He recommended using an older car because they are so interesting, but more so because their engine and drive trains are very simple and one can readily see the components working. The highlight of our Program at TRAACA had to be the cranking event. The kids were impressed. I used materials from the Henry Ford Museum (online) to make an outline. There I also got some very good *.jpg s, including the Model "T" engine. We kept this one generic, but TRAACA has been invited to participate in a GSA "Automobile" Merit Badge Meeting with Colonial Coast Council where we will go through the major maintenance and care requirements for an automobile and discuss general restoration of any cars present. The program was a good starter. <P>I would be happy to share anything that we have put together. Drop me an email.
