Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2014: Got my T here at Canada's biggest car show.

I'm here at the huge, Megaspeed Car Show at the International Center in Toronto. My car will be here all weekend. This is mainly a muscle car and hot rod show but, I really wanted the Ford Model T to be represented. Much to my surprise, there is another T here. Greg Whaley who is a forum member here has his beautiful 1924 truck and the show management was good enough to park us side by side. Hopefully, we will see some of you here. Got a few pics for you to enjoy.

Nice I would like to see some pics with people around to see the interest in it.

Wow, nice cars and nice displays! Is that a real rooster in the back of the truck?

Good for you Dave. Shows like that need a Model T or two. Thanks for doing your part to promote interest.

Well done guys, great to see the humble Lizzie in such lovely surroundings. Never know, we may get a person join us and "convert to the dark side"!

Glad you like it guys. Andrew, I will try to get a spectator photo tomorrow as it will likely be much busier than today. It's been a really respectful crowd so far, nobody trying to grab the cars or anything. Of course, some people are allowed behind the ropes to touch and even step on the cars.

Great pictures Dave!

Mark - it isn't real, but sure looks the part. Seems like everyone has to have a second look to make sure it isn't real :-)

Dave, I like your "Factory" options.....me thinks you like them much more than your wife would. Could be very expensive.

Les is right but each one of those options could be worth every penny spent for a day or two. Until you got hungry and wanted someone to cook something decent to eat.

Nah, the maintenance expenses would eat up all your T money!!
The signs look so professional--how did you get them? Your's tells the T story so well and simply (important at displays 'cause folks take about 30 seconds or less to look at a display initially.

The show is over and the Ts are back in their homes. Everything was a total success during the 3 1/2 days away. I got the antique class runner up award and Greg Whaley got the well deserved champion award. Congratulations Greg! David, I got my sign done at the UPS Store and Greg got his at Staples. Price runs around $35-$40. Modern large item printing makes it fast and cheap.Here is a pic of people checking out the cars. It's a hard shot to get because by the time the camera is ready, they're often gone. I'm going to do more shows like this next year, probably London or Detroit.
