I found this cracking pic of  a Model T on Ben Nevis, In 1911 Henry Alexander, a Ford agent based in Edinburgh, drove to the top of Ben Nevis to prove the ruggedness of the Ford Model T. The ascent took five days with the route leading over boulders, through snow-drifts and over perilous loose sand paths. At the top of Ben Nevis the Model T was met by the world’s press before taking less than three hours to descend the mountain, traversing gradients steeper than 1 in 3.
