100 Years Ago, This Was Your Right Front Wheel.

In 1911, if you were driving a motorcar, it would likely be a Model T that was sitting on wooden wheels. They were probably between 21 and 24 inches tall, and had a speedometer gear on the back side. ¬†Inflatable tires were still very new to the automotive world, but added huge comfort to the vehicle because of the rough, turn of the century roads. ¬†Wooden wheels like these were the norm up into the late 1920’s when steel took over. ¬†100 years later, this 1911 Model T is running like a top, still rockin’ the wooden dubs, and still wrapped in black paint, like when Henry’s workers originally made it.
