Yesterday the Kitsap T's came to the Carbon Canyon Model T (CCMT) stomping grounds for a joint club tour organized by Renea Aldrich, the CCMT Madam President. Both clubs contributed to "mechanical pauses" and in fact one T went home by way of a "vulture wagon".
Next year the CCMT will go to the Kitsap club and they will give us a tour of their beautiful area.
We stopped at the Carbonado Tavern for a Lunch/Dinner break.
Very awesome! Now that my car is running maybe I can go on the next tour.
Thanks for a great tour. We (Kitsap) are already planning the tour up here for next year.
Initial meeting in Orting
Glad you folks made it home safely. Had to be a LOOONG day for you!
I got home at 9:15. One of our group had problems all the way home. We averaged 20 MPH
Thanks to Madam Pres.,John And Bob (AKA B_ZERO_B)
great pictures and report. Always nice to know whats going on around here. I'd have joined you but no Snow. Ha Ha.
It was a good day for this tour. The weather was great and has us looking for shade by 10 am.
We changed our original route just days before because of the Seattle-Portland Bicycles. So instead of heading south, we went east. Bob Gruber had planned out the route for us and gave us the heads up on the situation. This morning Bob is probably looking out his windows at his T scratching his head.
We already knew the "Kitsap Crew" had some awesome people in it's membership. I want to thank all of you for not leaving anyone behind and lending a helping hand when needed. I think everyone's name starts with B_O_B!!
It is a good thing when all of us return home after a full day of touring, safe and sound. thoughts.
I look forward to all of us T'ing together again. Until then, see you all at the Can Am in September.
Damn I'm sorry I missed it. Looks like everyone had a great time. Spent the day at a concourse in Lynnwood, what a waste of time and effort. Seems they were supposed to have a class for unrestored cars 3 showed up including my 1912 original touring.
The judges decided to give the award to an early Rambler that had been repainted and had 30x-31/2 model t demountable wheels and rims. Not exactly a true barn find.
The good news is no more "car shows" for me, I just want to tour and enjoy. Count me in on your next tour.
My idea of a car show is long road trips or just using it. Car shows are great for silly people who enjoy wasting their free time roasting on sweltering pavement. Ribbons and trophies ? My idea of reward is the smiles the car puts on the faces of passersby.
At car shows you have to pay to let people look at your car and maybe scratch it up all for a
two-bit Chinese communist trophy. (not to mention sitting around all day)
I'd rather go for a drive in the country and have lunch somewhere.
Brass car guy...someone in the club will have a place to park a trailer if you need it...me included.
We'd like to have you join us!
Anyone get better pix of the TT ???
The C-Cab was on a standard T frame with a pick-up box. Cute as heck
Need to put me on the email list for future tours. I agree with Burger driving is much better than car shows, how much loud 50's-60's music can you stand in one day???? I only entered because the show director begged me to bring my original car after they had seen a photo of it. So once again I've learned a lesson I seem to keep forgetting. Must be my age. Told my wife slap me if I ever suggest a car show again, she said she would jump at the chance
I would be happy to assist your wife at any time -- LOL
I am becoming a defector from the 50's car scene for reasons of over abuse of cliche icons and near total ignorance of historical reality ...
... yes, there were other cars besides the 57 Chevy built in that decade.
... no, Elvis and rockabilly were not the only music from the era. Ever hear of Nelson Riddle, Sinatra, Perry Como, Johnny Mathis ?
... gum-smacking teenyboppers were not driving new cars in 1958. Dad had no interest in rock and roll when driving his new DeSoto or Lincoln, kapische ?
... poodle skirts were passe by the time fins were in.
Enough of the Happy Days BS !!!
I hate car shows. I hold very low respect for trophy chasers. Anyone who owns a car for the attention it brings to the owner is an axxhat, in my book.
Drive, get that old tech seen, be annoying to the speedbots, put smiles on the faces of those who "get it". Live like it is 1925 !
How do I add a smiley face here ? :-)
BCG here's a link to CCMTC website.
If you PM me your email address I'll get you on the list.
Carbon Canyon also has a Facebook page if anyone is interested. As does the Can AM group.
The best way to find out what we are doing is to get on the email list.
Current events get an email blast the week of the event with all the particulars
Next tour: Steak Run, August 16th to Ashford, WA. This has become a yearly run for us. A good friend brings in the steaks and bbq's them for us. The rest of us pot luck it.
BTW, I have a couple of plaques for my '23 Roadster. John hates car shows and hanging around all day. So now the deal is; plan something T related or I will find a car show to fill in the time. I agree it is much nicer to get in and go, searching the back roads.
Here is another picture of the C-Cab. The owner is Larry Fairchild. He has named this T some very descriptive words.
Both of the T clubs sported a Speedster.
How do I get to the face book page?

What is the bumper from on the C-cab ... anyone know ?
CCMT on FaceBook
Don't know what the bumper came from but I will find out for you
The bumper on the C Cab was a standard accessory bumper for Model T's that you can get out of one of the catalogs or vendors.
