Ford Model T

When I was a boy, a friend who lived on a farm had one of these. To make it faster he removed the body, and used it to practice slides and handbrake turns.

First thing I noticed about this car(apart from that color) was there's no driver's side door. The body has a ridge where the door opening would be, but no door. I think that back in those days the driver would enter and exit the car from the curb side through the passenger's door. That also explains why so many early American cars are RHD: The driver could just step from the right seat onto the sidewalk.
