On a 765 mile race, the Tesla wins by almost an hour.

The 99 year old Ford did have some fuel problems and a dead battery, but a race is a race and the Tesla did win.

The model t cheated though because they had a aftermarket transmission which increased top speed. All in all a fun read but 100 years of automotive and electronic/computer tech is just no match whatsoever. The model t does looks pretty cool though, had some racy lines for its time look. Heck looks better than most cars in the 70s, 80s and early 90s as auto styling transitioned.
