Your dad looks 71! Reminds me of growing up in California and seeing older guys, dads, with their old cars. One neighbor was a Model T expert and had four of them in his garage, all runners. It was always fun to stop by on my paper route and see what he was up to. Typical tinkerer, he'd be rebuilding a part or helping another Model T owner.

Obviously changed the grille.

It was F engine RWD unlike the Cord (F, FWD).

There's one here in Colorado, comes to Cars and Coffee in Lafayette once in awhile.

You won’t see the MP4-X in the 2016 Formula One season, but it offers an interesting glimpse into the future of motorsport
