Well if the plain jane corn flakes came with a Model T, then this other Kellogg's cereal should have included a Model K.

After reading this I ran down to the supermarket and bought 18 boxes of corn flakes and didn't find a Model T in one of them :-(

A few years back Kellogs reduced their operations in Battle Creek. They held an auction and one item was a Model T delivery with the Kellog's logo on the sides. Often wondered where it ended up.

Related true story (I think I've posted here before):

One fine morning in summer 1954 (I was 6 years old) my grandfather and I had breakfast together. We liked Wheaties with a little sugar, milk and coffee. In the new Wheaties box was a prize, a miniature California license plate (about 2.5" X 5"). When we finished breakfast we took the plate out to the barn, found a hammer and a couple of nails then nailed it to the wood cab front on the TT. It remains there to this day. Every time I look at it it reminds me of him and that time so long ago. :-)

Henry - What a wonderful memory!

Would it be possible for you to post a picture of it?

Thanks, Keith

I don't have a close-up, but if you look carefully you can see it at the top of the wood to the right (passengers side) of the windshield.
