AN attempt at crossing a deep ford in a classic car didn’t go well for one driver caught on video.

The open-top vintage motor is being driven by a man who appears to have his son with him in the passenger seat.
Judging by the hashtags on the video, this is Rufford Ford in Nottinghamshire, which has claimed multiple motors, many caught on camera and shared online.

The video is shot using a smartphone from a bank to the side and begins showing the Morris making its way into the water.
Compared with some other social media videos of the ford, the water doesn’t appear that deep.
So it seems strange that the Morris driver hits the water at such a high speed, sending water up into its radiator.
The old car comes to a stop halfway across as steam is seen coming from its engine.
The driver attempts to get it going again, but gives up and climbs out to inspect the problem.
There was a mixture of confusion and concern for the old motor in the comments.
One said: “The saddest one I’ve seen 😢”
Another said: “Why does everyone think they need to go fast lmao 🤣”
Another: “All he had to do was go super slow and that wouldn’t of happened.”
While a fourth said: “I hope he knows how to rebuild engines because there’s no way this thing can be scrapped.”
But his entry speed is too high and water splashes onto the radiatorCredit: TIKTOK – @BENGREGERS
