Modernity versus utility

A Hummer is pitted against a Model T. Guess which wins on all the points that matter. Even today, a 1925 Model T Ford in working order is reported to cost about $7,500. The article's called "Muscle Car" and appears in the August 13 issue of Forbes (sign-in is required, but it's free). The article reports that, of approximately 16 Model T vehicles produced between 1908 and 1927, 250,000 are estimated to survice and at least 60,000 are in drivable condition.
