Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: Reunion at the farm

I haven't been posting much lately because I've been busy getting ready for the family reunion here this weekend. Naturally, one of our activities was going for Model T rides.


Friday several folks rode the 1923 touring. We were going to use it again Saturday, but it died after starting three times and finally wouldn't restart. One of my Sunday chores will be finding out why.


With the touring out of service, I used the roadster. My little cousin Owen, the guy with the big grin, was the most enthusiastic rider. He had to go several times.


The roadster isn't roomy, but that didn't stop us.


No room for hitchhikers, though.


Into the setting sun.


There was a lot of doubling up.

I'm jealous. The only family reunions we have are at funerals any more. Kinda sad. But it looks like everyone in your crew had a great time.

Steve looks like you all had a great time! Happy for you and your family. Kevin, about the same here on my end. Small family for one thing, my sibs are scattered across the country anyway, wife's only sib and her kids show no interest whatsoever so when they come over the cars don't leave the barn. Oh well. Their loss!

It was a bigger turnout than usual this year, with folks coming from Virginia, Texas, Alaska, Hawaii, and points in between. Some of the younger ones had never been to the farm before, and some were here as babies or toddlers long ago. Some of the boys showed up early and did yard work and other preparation, and their wives are live wires who took over in the kitchen and Made Things Get Done.

The Rolls is my brother's. Remember the Rajneesh in Oregon who had a Rolls for every day of the week? That's where this one came from. Mike says his is the Tuesday car.

I see that someone in your family has 6 fingers on the right hand! Mighty big hand print on the first picture.

Steve,

It is always good to have a backup. Your roadster saved the day! Looks like you were making lots of good memories. Happy Father's day.

Respectfully submitted,

The '23....

" it died after starting three times and finally wouldn't restart.

With all the excitement of so many folks, so much use, and such a good time, any chance Mr. Frugal forgot to check the gas?

:-)

It turned out to be a sticking float valve. The five gallons I put in Friday had all leaked out.

The rajneesh bought his Rolls from the dealer in South Tacoma. They had purchased so many from the dealer that they actually had an open account.

At the very end they purchased 3 cars and took delivery on open account. Well when the end came the dealer was stuck with no cars and no money. That caused the demise of South Tacoma motors.

just sayin'

I have read that the British military would only allow two models of cars in the sandy parts of North Africa, Might have ben the ambulances, I forget.
They were model T Fords and Rolls Royces.
