The Nebraskaland Model T Club along with the Tennessee T's left Nashville on Sunday arriving in Natchez on Tuesday, 11 cars total, A great trip so far with no breakdowns in the first 500 miles. We will return to Nashville on Saturday.
Thanks for Sharing.
Susan and I are envious.
Did you get off the road and drive in the actual trace? The section we found in Mississippi was about 6 feet deep and wide enough for a Model T. Being in a modern car we just got out and walked.
Looks like a great tour. Are you driving your sedan? Thanks for posting and please post more as time allows,
I'm driving my Touring but Steve Hughes is driving my Sedan. I will post more pictures Later.
Ted, yes we drove on the "old" Trace.
Is that the Steve Hughes of Hupmobile fame?
The Natchez Trace tour is on my bucket list. It reminds me of my dear friend Bud.
We have traveled from Nashville to Natchez/Vidalia up to Vicksburg and over to Jackson. So far we have driven just over 700 trouble free miles. We still have about 400 miles to travel. Here are a few more pictures.
These are my cars, I'm driving the Touring and Steve is driving the Tudor.

Yes, I'm that Steve Hughes. The top is off my touring, so Mike agreed to let me drive his sedan. Really appreciated it as it was raining by the time we got to the hotel today. Thanks Mike.
Got home today, what a great trip! All of the Model T's performed excellent with only a couple of minor problems (dead coils) but were back on the road in only minutes. If you have not made this trip in your Model T you really should put it on your "bucket list". We drove 1100 miles in a week, great weather and made some new friends from the Tennessee T's.

Sounds like fun, Mike. And it is amazing that a total of 9900+ miles were traveled and all cars made the trip.
Just out of curiosity- did all 9 cars travel together? And, if so, what was the average speed that was travelled?
John, everyone kind of traveled at their own pace but I would say that the average cruising speed was 35 MPH.
