Electric Tea For Two: 1923 Ford Model T

I’ve ranted enough about the demise of the manual transmission and the coming penalty box of autonomous electric vehicles that you might think I’m mad — but I assure you that a doctor said I was fine.  Regardless, I do look forward to the time when I can send my self-driving car on an errand to the store to pick up something for me — I’ll put on my magic car directing hat and say “car, go to Harbor Freight and get me another 3-pack of stepped drill bits.”  Because I’ll always need parts/tools for the nutty human driven projects in my garage, like a 1923 Ford Model T converted to electric with starting bid of $5,000 here on eBay located in Sedona, AZ with 3 days to go.  Tip from SeanT.

With many 1916 and earlier Model T’s on the road still today, it is amazing to think that you can actually own and drive a 100 year old car. I can’t imagine that in 2116 you’ll find anything from 2016 on the road…but this 1923 car will probably still be chugging whirring around.

Where the engine should be is some piece of electronic wizardry that makes electrons flow into small pinwheels that spin the state or rote or — it’s all very complicated and translating it into layman’s terms is an exhausting feat, but the short story is 36 volts and the seller doesn’t specifically mention if it runs at this time.
