I was able to escort my wife's Grandpa to the cemetery for one last ride. He loved riding in the Model T.

Thanks for all the kind words, we are losing the greatest generation and a lot of MODEL T knowledge.

Jared, Most folks from that generation, would appreciate the last ride in a T far more than a modern hearse. My condolences and "hats off" to you.

That's a very special thing to do. The memory of that last ride will stay with you and hopefully provide some peace as you move forward.

I had the honor of taking my father's remains for one last tour in the car that we restored together. I still think of that ride to the cemetery fairly often when I take that car out for a drive. It's just mixed in with all the memories of time well spent together, messing around with Model Ts.

I hope my kids use the same car to take me for one last ride after I am called home to the Lord.

Jared,

My condolences to your wife and her Grandpa’s extended family. I’m glad you were able to honor him with one last ride in the TT. As others have said – special memories. From the Flag draped casket, I assume he was veteran. We owe them so much.

God Bless,

My dad was an antique car collector from the early 50's and for years never missed Hershey. He and my mother did many HCCA brass car tours in the 60's, 70's and 80's.

So when he died and was cremated my brother and I decided to take some of the ashes and spread them around the Hershey swap grounds. The very next year the field was paved and now his ashes are there permenantly ensconced there.

just sayin'
