Back in 1986 I was privileged to go on the Great American Race from Disneyland in Ca. to NYC for the unvailing of the rebuilt Statue of Liberty.Most memorable was two school teachers from Louisiana who drove a T from their home to Ca.,ran the race to NYC and then drove back home. It was a black T,don't know the year,they had no support vehicle,their back seat had a lot of spare parts but they were on their own. As far as I know they never broke down.I was amazed!!! Fritz

If I didn't have to work all summer, I might try something like that too.

Was it these guys from Mississippi in a 1913 touring car?

They must have slept in the car too. The beginning of the article say the cars were from "the homeless carriage era".

They where homeless must have been because they spent all their money on a water pump.

Ginni Withers drove the original Thomas Flyer. Wow. And a year later, she drove the original Bonnie and Clyde 34 Ford from Disneyland to Disney World.

Fritz,
Those 2 intrepid Model T enthusiasts were, indeed, from Mississippi. The owner of the '13 touring was the late and great Randy Harding and I just saw his sidekick-Kirk- last week at Chickasha. A side story has them getting lost in NYC in a very slow car and, flying their state flag that includes the Stars and Bars, they drove through Harlem. :0(
