heading to Minnesota for vacation. any model t hot spots, junk yard, collections or must see's there? any help would be appreciated!
June 8th and 9th at Farmington MN. Annual Model T show and swap meet. Tour on Saturday and show/swap meet on Sunday. Twin Cities club is T-Totalers, and Great Northern Model T Club is in the St cloud/Brainerd and points North areas. As far as Model T Collections; many of us have multiples of Model T's however I know of no-one that has a collection. A person that can be interesting to talk to is Mike Peterson in Shevlin MN. And though they're no relation Bob Peterson has a few cars by Kenyon MN. Both are pretty good guys. There's a pretty nice Automotive museum in Rodgers MN. For some reason I'm not able to remember any names or phone numbers this morning. One of the guys on this site that posts a lot and is a pretty good guy is Derek Kiefer from Mantorville MN. Maybe he can help you with some info too. Hey Derek, you out there? If your plan is to make Hutchinson your main area of operations you'll be about 60 miles from the St Cloud area. I'm going camping in Northern Minnesota June 4th through 7th and won't be around the St Cloud area. A real good contact in the area just west of St Cloud is Andy Loso. He owns Oso Handy Restorations and is actually a little Model T weird but still a great guy. 320-293-1953 should shake him loose from whatever he's into long enough to answer a phone call. Have a good time while you're in Minnesota. This is the best time of the year. The mud season is over and the mosquito/deer fly/horse fly seasons haven't started yet. Fishing is probably a little different this year and pretty unpredictable. The ice has been off the lakes for just a few weeks. It has always seemed to me the best time for fishing is the 2nd week in June to the end of the 1st week of July. Be aware, we have real fish here in our state. Though some go after large mouth bass and there might even be a few that
fish for catfish we have walley, small mouth bass, large perch, northern pike and the most fun of all; the muskellunge (muskie). Most of us like to practice catch and release we also keep enough to have a couple good meals too.
Yeah, I'm here.
I'm a long way from Hutchinson though, but if you come through the Rochester area at all, send me an email. I know a few Model T guys around the area.
Bob's really got some nice orginial cars, and a NEW barn I hear tell !
wow! thank you very much. we are looking forward to heading up north and relaxing. thank you very much again.
Mike, do you have a itinerary of spare time in Hutchinson? I don't know if I will be back from NC until July. I only live 30 miles from Hutchinson and could show you a few things, or maybe make a day trip with you.
Mike, I would be willing to meet up with you, if you schedule and mine allow. Feel free to call me at 320-293-1953 or email me at email@example.com
Hi I am Larry Anderson the Chairman of the Reunion Committee and I appreciate your interest. I would like to invite everyone to join us June 8 for the Tour and June 9 for the Swap and Show.
