Met up with some of the guys (and gals!) this morning at 0900 at the Kohler (Wi) Generator factory in Sheboygan Wi on the way to dropping SIL off at Mitchell Field in Milw.... 40ish and sunny and actually pretty nice as long as youre dressed for it.
Keith was good enough to walk us around and make introductions. I only had maybe 15-30 minutes there as we had a plane to catch and traffic was less than good in town. I only managed to get a few pics before they started their "trip talk". Sortie consisted of 2 depot hacks, several 26-27 roadsters and a coupe, and a sweet '25 (?) Fordor sedan.
Hope you guys have a blast and hopefully get to meet up Monday! Regards, troop
Meeting up with the tour in Two Rivers tomorrow about noonish. This will ad another 5-6 cars for a show!
Hey troop it was nice meeting you at the generator plant on Saturday morning. My car is currently down for maintenance so we were there to send them off too. My wife and I joined up with the tour on Sunday for the day in the modern T, we had 21 people and seven T's. It was a beautiful day and a great tour with no mishaps. Remember they will be stopping at the big cow on 10th street for ice cream on the way home today.
Yeah Dan... "T" minus about and hour and counting. Theres about a half dozen T folks here that are gonna meet these guys in TR and follow them to the cow at least. Right now its 49F and trying to drizzle. Hope to meet up with you again!
For now tho, being the PATRIOT that I am, I got over and dressed ship this morning... kinda odd having the only "yacht" in Two Rivers! troop
So after some scrutaneous calculating, we figured out the best place to meet the tour on their way home.... we waited and we waited, all of about 15 minutes, then they all showed up like clockwork.
Got into the procession and made about 2 blocks where everyone pulled in for potty and gas. Then it was off to Manitowoc at a blistering (or was that blustering ?) drive at 35 mph along the lake. It was 45ish and a tad hazy, which some southerners would call fog, just not as sunny.
Ended up at Cedar Crest Ice Cream in MTW. for photo ops and a lot of handshakin'. Thanks again to Keith and bride for all the work that went into this and for letting me tag along... this trip netted about 100 smiles per gallon and 200 smiles per hour!! troop
They even let some ol' hippy in there!
AND, for those with a benign (or is that latent?) sense of humor, this is where we ended up! troop
Ron stock decided to bring his late model Ford along for comfort...
And for those on dial up... sit back for an hour and enjoy the flick...
Hi Bill ( aka Troop) - Nice pictures! Thank you for taking and posting them. In the very first picture posted above on Saturday, that's me and our green '26 Roadster Pickup. The yellow speedster in the picture is Bill's.
We enjoyed a 3 day tour to Door County, WI over the Memorial Day weekend. The weather was a bit cool, but it didn't rain. There were 7 Model T's and about 20 people. 2 of our club members drove modern as their Model T's were out of commission.
It was fun meeting Bill and seeing his speedster. We also met Jeff Pagels from Manitowoc, WI and his '24 Model T put together when they met us in Two Rivers, WI and drove with us down to Manitowoc. The big fiberglass cow pictured is in front of the Cedar Crest ice cream factory and retail store. Of course, we had to stop and get a cone.
All in all, it was a very enjoyable weekend.
Im glad it was fun for all as I hold MANY Door County Model T memories close to my heart! Didnt hear about any breakdowns or even a flat tire! All us MTW County boys had a blast, short as it was! troop
We didn't have any breakdowns or flat tires. Some of us just made a few adjustments while at the motel in the evening.
