So as I make a turn at the light in downtown Two Rivers, I encounter about 6 or 7 T's approaching the light from my left. Mostly 26-7s, a few were 2 door sedans, a roadster, and a roadster pickup, and one brass roadster. I really thought the MTFCA was in town to WHACK me.
Their route was pointing them at Manitowoc... Dairyland Tin Lizzies? A few had magnetic signs on the doors. I didn't recognize anyone, but hey, at 50F with a drizzle I was watching for pedestrians. The open car guys were dressed for bear. Dang Flatlanders! BTW... it was windy and baggy in TR today LOL...
Headed for the ferry?
Bill - Speaking as a member of the Dairyland Tin Lizzies, it wasn't our club.
What a cold ride that would be. Not the Milwaukee Club. Might be Tin Lizzies.
The cars are from the West Central Indiana Club.
They are on a two week tour. They left Williamsport, Indiana Sunday morning making it to Southern Michigan Sunday evening at an overall average speed of 19mph.
They took the ferry across lake Michigan this morning into Wisconsin.
Going north to the UP and back down the Western shore of Lake Michigan.Covering over 1100 miles.
I got a chuckle from your post!
I very much needed that.
(Especially after reading Danial M. C's thread. I couldn't even bring myself to make a comment.)

Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Yeah... I wished I had my camera at the ready, but it wasn't meant to be...Too much traffic and the blink of an eye etc. They mustve been on a GPS cause the route they took was putting them southbound, or at least very much outa the way from a trek north. If any of them are reading this and need help around here, don't hesitate to call or at least PM me.
On that other "intruder" post, that also happened to a pal in Chicago... Steve pulled a Forest Gump and shot the perp in the Beautox with a .22 rifle as he was exiting a window. Jabril was arrested but in the end he sued Steve and actually was awarded damages. Shoulda been a BUBBA shot
That's crooked Chicago for you!
Hey ex trooper that was me and 6 other T's from the West Central Indiana Model T club. I met them at the ferry in Manitowoc, lunch at the Courthouse Pub and on to the Napa store in Two Rivers. One of the guys had an electrical problem we had to get checked out. From there we headed up to Door County. I don't know where you saw us but we weren't heading to Manitowoc on the 11th.It was a great trip, I ran with them up and over the UP and across the bridge and back to Ludington. About 900 miles for me by the time I got back home.
Troop, did you have your GPS mounted upside down again?
just wondering, what is the favorite donut of the ex trooper?, or does he not eat them anymore?
Favorites are EX-donuts of course... Dan, I saw you guys as I was going north on Washington St (main drag) and turned left(west) on 14th (NAPA street). You guys were eastbound on 14th and turned right (southbound) on Washington. Other than a few side streets, thatll take you along Memorial Drive back to Manitowoc. Hope you spoke with Gary or Brad Ball at NAPA (owners). OT... next Friday night is the Cool City car parade from Manty to TR at about 5PM, with the Cool City Classics car show through downtown all day Saturday. Streets are blocked off for the event all day. Usually about a 3-400 car turn out with lotsa vintage stuff. Hope the wind doesn't blow too hard up here; we'll all end up in the lake LOL. Sending out a big Hello to Bill Alexander from Albion, Maine too.
The Pollinator is summering in Mintysoda (dang upside down GPS!) but Ill be at the show with this Bad Lad >> anudder barn find I picked up.... ws
So, it does run! Good luck at the show.
