A picture of a Model T from the 1947 Disney short "Wide Open Spaces". Looks to be a 1913-1915 runabout to me.

Thanks for posting this! The very thought of Donald Duck cranking a T that won't start makes me smile.

Usually you can just drag a photo to your desktop and post from there. If drag & drop doesn't work you can make a screen shot. Either way, the image is often rather small and I blow it up to 700-800 pixels high as I did with this one.

He's obviously taken over driving duties from Goofy after that unfortunate travel trailer incident.

Now this is just sad... went to see the youtube of it... and got this love letter:

"Video unavailable

Ward Kimball & Ben Sharpsteen were both Disney animators at that time & both were Horseless Carriage Club members .
They also were on the design team that created Disneyland !
