Yes, HH was a car guy, and owned a "T" and an "A".

Here is a link about him:

Yes, that is HHH's car. He also owned a Model A Ford sedan and a Glassic phaeton (reproduction Model A).

The '26 touring was donated to the Wright County Historical Society in Buffalo, MN.

I took some photos of it a few years ago. The Minnesota Pioneer plate has been swapped out for a YOM plate.

Ron, thanks for the link. I thought other forum members might like to know.
Just think if all our elected representatives were car guys? We would not be in the mess we are now. Jerry

Hubert Humphrey's car had thermo siphon, no known problems. Richard Nixon's car had thermostat (aka Watergate), big problems.

I have seen HHH's model A. It was in very nice condition in the early sixties, but he loved to give people ides in the cornfields after the corn was picked. He would bounce them around over the corn stubbles.

Thanks for this. Never knew HHH was a car guy. And I FINE condition cars at that. Really nice!
