Just thought on Christmas day I would post an old picture for all our Model T fans. This is a picture of my Grandfather & Grandmother taken in 1917. The Model T was their first car purchased new in 1914. The baby in the picture is my Mother who is 94 now and after we found another 1914 Model T in 2005, she got to ride in in with me. Grandpa left the old Ford in the barn for us kids to play on and I remember wanting to bring it back to life then. After it was sold in 1957, I always wanted a Model T - so after 50 years we got to realize that dream. Thanks to all our Model T buddies who make this hobby so much fun. And may everyone have a blessed Christmas.

Thanks Eric - My uncle said it was a 1913 but every else said it was a 1914. What did you see that helps identify the year?
