The Gilmore Car Museum in Michigan, USA gives visitors a unique level of interaction with antique cars - letting you drive a Ford Model T.

From the crank starter to the column-mounted throttle control, the museum says it offers comprehensive training on how to drive and operate a Model T.

According to the museum: "The Gilmore Car Museum’s Model T driving school will teach the skills required to drive any of the 15-million 'Tin Lizzies' built from 1908 to 1927.
