Model – T Experience

Model T Class

This is truly a hands-on experience!  It will leave you wanting more!

Imagine driving a car with the accelerator on the steering column. Now, imagine shifting gears with only your feet.  In other words, forget everything you know about driving a car!

In our “Model T Experience,” you will learn the history of Henry Ford’s “Tin Lizzie.” Learn to master the three-foot pedals, one hand lever, and two hand controls behind the legendary automobile that made owning a car a reality for the masses in the early days of the automobile!

After you learn the mechanics of driving a Ford Model T, you put your knowledge to the test by getting behind the wheel and driving through the woods of the historic Marymount Academy campus.

This is more than a class, it’s an experience!
