Just a quick note to update you on the arrival of Dirk and Trudy Regter from the Netherlands. They are traveling around the world in a Model T. This adventure is raising money for the SOS Children's homes, an international foundation. Your club board of director Bill Sherrill picked them up from the airport and assisted them in getting their car from the port in Houston. They then were able to attend the Space City T's Chapter Ice Cream Social and visit with some of our local club members. From there they traveled to College Station to visit with Ben Hardeman of Texas T Parts and Ross Lilleker of Lilleker Antique Auto. Ross helped Dirk change some tires and go over his car for the long North American trip ahead. They have already been through Africa and have over 20,000 miles on their T. I assume they will find our road system to be preferable. Check out their blog and web site for more information and a map of their route. I know they would love to visit fellow Model T'ers along the way. For now we have passed them on to the Austin, Tx and San Antonio, Tx clubs.
Dirk and Trudy are paying for the trip themselves and all proceeds they raise go directly to their charity. Check it out and donate at
