The report includes the Model T Museum and highlights Justin Mitchell too. Read and enjoy!
well I'm not sure he has his facts straight, he points out that mass production started in 1914, and that model T's are more rare than the later model A`s due to the scrap drives of WW2. hmmmm
I wonder how the number of extant Model T's compares with Model A's. Of course no one knows an accurate number of either, but I've heard that about 1% (or 150,000) of Model T's have survived. Does anyone know a number for A's?
Over fifteen million T's were produced, and fewer than five million A's. I can't prove it, but I suspect there are more T's than A's today, even after the scrap drives.
150 thousand would mean there are on average 3 thousand Ts in each state...seems like a high number for actual running or complete model ts ..
I would have to believe that more Model Ts survive then the number mentioned...Just look at the size of the catalogues of the T suppliers.
The museum was in Richmond for years before the Centennial in 2008. In any event, we are glad he likes Model T's, and that he enjoyed the museum.
My recollection is that it was in Centerville, out by the highway next to the candle store, and moved to Richmond at some point after the Centennial. It was certainly not in Richmond at the time of the Centennial.
OK I did not realize the old location was considered a different town. I thought the old location was Richmond too - but Jay lived in Centerville? Either way it didn't move too far.
Yes, the old location was not only Centerville, but it wasn't even really in Centerville, but all the way out by I-70. The present location is perfect - in the Depot District in a historic part of Richmond.
