I drove my T down to the Christmas tree farm to pick up our tree. My wife is very fussy with her tree selection but she finally came up with a nice 7 ft tree which just fit the T and touches our entry way ceiling! Merry Christmas to all forum users and please add your Christmas T pictures here to share.
Warwick, I hate to tell you mate but there is something furry and green in your back seat buddy!!! A great way to get a tree!!!
Merry Christmas Landy Family You seem to be missing some snow. Let me send you some free of charge. Colin
Colin - A kind of "off the subject" comment, but it's strange how we all become used to something that we've grown up with:
It seems strange to all of us in the USA (especially in our northern "snow belt" part of our country) to see all of your summer activities similar to our activities from March or so until October or so, and yet, your Christmas season is much, much more like the Bethlehem climate 2000+ years ago than ours!
Colin,.....sorry,......I should have said our northern "snow belt" and for sure,.....ALL of Canada!
Oh heck,...I'm all screwed up this morning,.....this should have been directed to Warwick,.....maybe a second cuppa' coffee will help,.....I'll shut up now!
Today was the day for us. I guess most folks don't take a camera with them when they drive their T to get a tree.
Actually, it has been a tradition to get the Christmas tree in an old car for many years in our family, but I haven't always gotten pictures and can't find all of the ones we did take.
Hope the Holidays are good to you.
My T just before the start of the Lynchburg Va. Christmas parade.
This was in 2003. My youngest son and I went to buy the tree and decided to go in the T.
The dog wanted to go for a drive. Hope he makes it home OK.
Glad to see that several of you all have found the JOY!! in going out to get your Christmas tree in your T. I did it in 1967-70. In Springfield, Mo. where I grew up. I use to go out to a black farmers land across from the Dayton fan belt corporation. Mr Toliver was his name. He loved the T. I would talk to him for a while and ask if I could BUY a tree from him for our Christmas tree. He always told me to just go and pick one and bring it up to the house. I would put it on the running board on the driver's side where I had a expansion gate. I would tie it on to my top support. He NEVER would let me pay him for the trees (one each year) until I moved away to Florida. Years later he had sold the farm and I never saw him around there any more. I wondered what had become of the farmer and his family. I miss him and our talks. He loved my T's. Some years it would snow and with my side curtains on to keep out the cold and using a funnel accessory exhaust manifold heater hole thru the firewall we would feel some warmth after a few minutes of running. No blower of course. There were several instances that made it all even MORE fun for the season... people would honk and wave, or give us the thumbs up!!! One woman got out of her car, it's snowing mind you, and took a picture of our car and the tree at a stop light. What a feeling to see OTHERS getting some enjoyment of what we were doing. Made it even more enjoyable.
You guys MUST try it. People DO respond. Merry Christmas to all of you who read this.

here is an old one we did during the Christmas parade.
WIth an exchange student from Nicaragua
Today the Long Beach Model T Club had our annual Christmas Party at Recreation Park Golf Course. Cindy's Coupe was driven by Santa with the help of Frosty the Snowman
We had about 15 Model Ts and a few other vintage cars at the party:
Merry Christmas from Texas. No snow, just about 70 degrees and pleasant. We hope you have a great 2015. (the tree is already up)
We emulated the puzzle. Same year car in the puzzle - 1914 Touring (mutt)
The local paper put on the front page.
Merry Christmas everyone!!!....I had a laugh to myself when I read the thread title, because what came to mind was Hank Williams' song "Tear In My Beer", with the title changed to: "Tree In My T"...
Great photos by the way!
