Not only was a Ford T ungodly slow in reverse, but the Sandy River 2Ft master mechanic found that they overheated due to lack of air flow through the radiator when running backwards--thus the ''turntable'' that he put under at least one so that the car could be turned end for end.

Some one at the EBT years ago built a similar device for the M3, but as it wasn't attached to the car, it had to be carried inside. It still exists, large and clumsy looking in one of the open sheds up there. The M3 is heavier than a Ford T, I think.


Fix it again, Mr Gates--it still works!"
