NASCAR star Joey Logano drives 'challenging' classic Ford Model T


The NASCAR star took viewers on a quick tour of the classic before showing off how the car drives today. Logano said he has owned the model for around seven or eight years and was his favourite car” in his collection.

He explained some of the key differences between the historic model and cars of today, including peculiar pedals and unique steering wheel.

He said: “It’s a lot different to what your typical car is.

“One of the first things I noticed when I sat in a Model T is they mounted the steering wheel backwards.

“But it’s actually this way because you’ve got your throttle on your right hand so your hands are actually close to the throttle lever in this case.

Firing up the classic Model T, Logo said even though the car is only capable of around 25mph, it can sometimes feel like 80mph when on the road.

He said: “You want to make sure you have plenty of [room] before pulling out on the road in this thing.

“You’re not getting out of the way too quick and if someone gets behind you they are usually not too happy.”

He added: “Here we are pulling up to a red light here, first thing you do is you start to slow down early because you’re not sure how quick you’re going to stop.”
