This really looks interesting.....Who owns it and who put it there?

Inquiring minds need to know.... :-)

I don't know who owns the tower, but at the next intersection hang a right and you'll be here:

On a trip through Richmond it was mention that the city wanted to place a Model T on the tower. I though it could be done and when I returned home I contact Mark at Model T Heaven.

After explaining to Mark what we wanted to do and also stated I had a budget of zero dollars, Mark without hesitation said he would give us a touring from old parts.

Bud Redding another Board of Director of the club and a friend, at Marks shop put the car together and brought it to Oklahoma. I had problems and wasn't able to finish to work needed and the Tin Lizzies of Albuquerque step up and finish patching the body and building panels for the front doors along with prepping it to be coated with epoxy bed liner.

Bill Howell with the Arkansas Tin Lizzies Club donated a hood and complete windshield that really were in great shape and those were traded for not so good items that the are on the car now.

The frame bridging the tower was built by others in the Richmond area and I am sure there will be an article in the Vintage Ford soon.

Big thank you to all that finish the project

Mike Bender
Board of Director MTFCA

OK who drove it up there and how did you get it to stop in time before it went over the other side?

Thanks to all who were involved to help promote the Model T Hobby.
