The brick building didn't hold up either. It would have been very unlikely that a Model T would have held up in that tornado either!

Details…...

It was the Lorain, Ohio tornado on June 28, 1924 aka the Lorain-Sandusky tornado.

Richmond, Indiana is most likely a reference to the photographer or publisher of the photo, A.B. Reinhart, not the location of the photo.

A Model T would have faired no better in a tornado!

O.K. now lets face it, Model T's are like Timex watches, they just keep on Ticking away. Turn the key and crank away unless a starter model.

That was right in "my backyard" figuratively speaking. Glad I wasn't there to witness it.
Had a small one go right behind my house in 1992 and that was enough for me. Had nightmares about it for over two years.

You know why most Chevys were painted green didn't you?
So they could hide in the grass and watch the Fords go by.
Old one.

I'm not sure if a Model T would have even been there....... :-O

Actually, the Chevy looks as good or maybe even better than that brick building! It might even start up and drive away!

Born and raised in Lorain, sorry the Model T didn't fare much better.

Yeah, you're probably right Joe. The gravity feed fuel system can be a bit "problematic" in that position!
