AMTT = Caution this is an Actual Model T Topic
Please don't read if you are offended by oil, grease, or bruised knuckles.

While at the Dr's office this morning I saw an article in Car and Driver about a pig race.
When I open the page I was surprised to see a bunch of Model T's without bodies and the drivers had pigs in their laps.
Unfortunately I was not able to read the article because I was called into the exam room.
Since I am an honest person, I did not steal the magazine or rip the article out of it.
Can someone give us a synopsis of the article?

(I hope Steve doesn't tell us to just read the book!)

The Pig-n-Ford races has been part of the Tillamook County Fair for the last 89 years. The spectacular event has been discussed at the forum a few times, here's a couple of recent threads:

Most rodeos here in the Northwest include "greased pig races". The cars are very striped down T's (more striped than a speedster). I have no idea what these races have to do with cowboys but most rodeos have them, Don.
