My wife is watching a series on TV set around 1910. There are a few old cars and some are T model fords. It got me thinking, How reliable were these cars in there day? I understand that they would require regular maintenance. Were they the type of thing that would be a lottery if you wanted to go anywhere or if you kept up the maintenance you were reasonable certain that it would get you there? This leads to the second question, if they were not reliable, when did cars become reasonable reliable if kept maintained. Thanks Steve from down under.
