I would like to thank you for your assistance to me and my family COMPLETE STRANGERS who were in need as our Model T Pie Truck broke down on its way to the Henry Ford Old Car Festival this past weekend. It is great that there are (STILL) people out there such as yourself who come to the aide of others. However you went way beyond. Thank you for purchasing a battery and leaving tools at our hotel so that upon arrival we could see if that solved our Model T problems. It did and the weekend we planned for some time was not ruined and in fact a great success where we got to present to the world and return for the first time in 100 year our 1914 Connecticut~Copperthite Pie Delivery Truck. We had a wonderful time in large part because of your generosity and we are sorry we did not get to spend as much time with you and or see your car.. I hope you and yours enjoyed the Blueberry pie baked at the last minute as a small thank you for kind assistance!
I hope to see you at Hershey and or other Model T events. If you make it to Washington DC please give us advance notice and I would love to show you hospitality that can only be conveyed by a seventh Washingtonian can!

Way to go Jon, you just raised the bar a bit higher for all of us. LOL It's stories like this that confirm the fact that Model T people are the best and am pride to have the bar so high for myself.
Mr. Crane did a good service to many as we all got to see that pie truck. I only saw it once as I drove by. I remember pointing it out to my wife because it was so outstanding and beautiful.
I saw it but same as you only driving by.The truck i wanted a closer look at was the International tanker!It was a hoot meeting Dean Yoder! Dean and Rob did a demo of the model K mag/alt/dist/cdi,and much i'm not smart enough to understand!Bud.
Enjoyed meeting you. Will be at Hershey. Have you ever been to the show and flea market?
I suggest that you be truly authentic and fill the pie wagon with pies. You will sell out in a half a day. Better set up a Washington shuttle to refill the pie wagon!
Guys - Mike gave me the best blueberry pie I ever ate! Find his Pie Wagon and grab a pie at Hershey before he sells out.
John Reagon, you might be good with coil boxes and stuff, but you can't make pies like this man.
Thank you Mr. Crane for the compliment. The Pie Truck has been invited to the AAAA Ales and Auto Event and we are trying to juggle work to take the pie truck to Hershey. The Pies we brought for the OCF were not for sale they were for the workers, TO BRIBE THE JUDGES, the car hauler and for you and he ford mechanics who ran down the voltage leak. The OCF is way to much to absorb in two days and we will have to be back. Attached some pictures from the weekend! Cheers www.CoCoPieCo.com
Mike, great tread that you started. I can only ad that we live a great country of people everywhere are coming to someone's rescue. Being a truck driver for over 35 years and most of them "over the road" I can tell many stories about people coming to my rescue. When I look back at all my adventures the ones with a little adversity are the ones that I remember as being "the best of times, when they could have been the worst of times".
Mike thanks for posting the vintage pictures, I enjoyed meeting you and the good converesations of family and T's....I love that pie carrier in the last photo...........Bob
Jon Crane has helped many of us thru the years. Thanks for moving this hobby forward in so many ways.
You got that right Mark!! Jon got me brave enough then showed me how to use my carbide lights on our 14 the first time! Bud.
Mike, that is the coolest pie truck!!! It was parked near my fire engine so I had the chance (when I wasn't narrating) to get a good look at it.
