Went to my local cruise night. There are hundreds of nice cars there. I always have the only Model T. They do a different theme each week. This week was emergency services night and the police brought their mobile museum and special vehicles. The Chief of Police was the judge who examined all the cars and had to pick first second and third. I won first place. That should make me ticket proof for at least six months.

Well, we know the Chief has great taste. Congratulations for "copping" the award.

Rich

Well duh... look at those cars in the background, a T is the clear choice. This one looks pretty nice... any chance of seeing a better photo of the car, Dave?

Congratulations Dave. At least up in Canada someone appreciates the REAL nice cars more so than the "modern classics"...down below you not so much. I've had two different brass cars, a '20 runabout that looks as great as yours, even the firetruck at the weekly cruise night, along with a couple of other T-buddies with equally nice vehicles and it's always the "moderns" that get the "notoriety". Except from the viewing public...my cars get more looks, questions, and pics than any modern next to it, even from younger folks including girls! That's enough satisfaction I guess.

I think you won because you had the most "Classic" car there. Congrats.
Gary

That's it Gary. It's not that my car is so great (it's not). What I am doing is winning popularity contests. People are finally getting tire of seeing the same muscle cars. We always knew they were not very good cars but, they were fast. Now they're not even fast anymore. Ordinary car will eat them. Look at the new "Hellcat Challenger", makes the old Hemi Cuda seem kind of tame. I keep winning these awards. I get last minute invites to strictly pre-registration car show and parades as well as preferred parking. You just don't see cars from the 1910's driving around here. There's only one other car in my region that comes out regularly. In my actual area, I'm it.
