There were no National T tour's on the East Coast this year, so a few of us decided to take a tour through Massachusetts. PA friends put this together. They contacted the Lang's, and they supplied us with daily tours of their area. They also took the time to show us their new location. It is HUGE! The building was built in the early 1900's, and was a factory for building high chairs. They located one of the high chairs that was manufactured there. Don and his two sons took the time to show us around their location. They also invited us back for coffee tomorrow. Nice family

Yes, it was an interesting doodlebug. We also went by a couple of Fordson tractors, but we were passed them before we could get a picture of them

Today's tour was marred by a broken axle on a 25 Touring. Luckily no one was hurt as they were going up hill when it broke. Took awhile to find the wheel, but it was found. We called Don Lang, he came with his truck to take the car back to his place. We continued on our tour with plans to stop back at Langs on our way back to transfer the car to the owners trailer. Don and his son's spent a lot of their time helping us get this car back in the owners trailer. Let me just tell you, the Lang family are SUPER supporters of this hobby, and it's members. They refused any payment for all the work they did and time they spent helping us.
Also, Don took the time to take us on another tour of a garage with interesting cars.
Thank you to the Lang family for their support with supplying us with daily tours.

Dan
How about a post on that aftermarket spring assembly in your pictures.

Ditto on Bob's request...
Interesting spring(s).

Unique car carrier also...

A broken axle can cause a lot of pain and suffering. I'm glad that the passengers of that '25 walked away without a scratch. I've been a fan of Lang's all together and have never heard anything negative about them at all. Wonderful people and an incredible resource and asset to the world of the Model T.

I would be interested to learn more about that wonderfully scruffy '13 or '14 Touring!

Bob and Dave, I don't know to much about the aftermarket spring assembly. It was on the car when the owner purchased it. Don Lang noticed it and said he has a set of these springs. Don Lang owns this car carrier and has had it on many National Tours, at Hershey, and I think he used it for back up on the Ocean to Ocean Cross Country Tour(but not positive).

Bernard, The story on the 14 can be found in the Vintage Ford Volume 46 #2 March/ April 2011. If you can't find it pm me and I will forward it to you

Glad to hear no one got hurt. That car carrier looks like it is perfect for hauling T's around. Has enough grunt that you could put a decent sized trailer behind it as well.

I should also add that I am a huge fan of Langs. Great service, and they are always great to talk to onthe phone as well!

Greg, he does haul a large vender trailer behind that Ford truck.

As Yogi would have said 'You must have had too many goodies in that picanick basket'. Always had good luck with Langs as well.

It was great having you all week. We love seeing our customers enjoy the hobby even when we can't close the shop and come with you! Being a part of this hobby has always been a joy and being able to support other T'ers is just another fun part.
