Even you can experience driving an old car by signing up for the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum's Model T Driving School. Take the Wheel!

You are going to love learning about the life and times of a "Tin Lizzie."

This one-day class is chocked full of history, stories, maintenance, and yep, you guessed it, DRIVING!

It is not every day that you get the chance to go back in time and get hands-on experience in operating an old car. Take the class for this rare opportunity or give it as a gift to a friend. After you've learned a bit about what made the Model T unique you get to drive the car and truly feel the differences in how it handles compared to modern day vehicles. This hands on experience enables you to truly appreciate the early movers and shakers who took a chance and bought a car and set out to stitch the country together as they explored America and made work just a little bit easier. You've never had this much fun driving an old car.

Space is limited to just ten students per class so sign up now.
