He would park it on a hill at home to get a rolling start and at school the other kids would give him a push at the end of the day. Not sure how he got it stopped. The main attraction was when he arrived at school in the morning as everyone would gather around and watch his glowing red engine crackle and pop as it cooled down. I am now sure how long this went on, but Model A Fords can take a lick'n and keep on tick'n!

Never had to worry about a cracked block leaking water into the oil, did he!
