I received this message from a friend in our Arkansas Tin Lizies Model T club. Can anyone help him out?
My mom turns 100 on 6 Aug and I'd like to drive her or have her driven around the block in a 1915 Model T Touring Car on her birthday. She lives in Lakewood Center, Washington which is just south of Tacoma. I'd drive her in my own '15 T Touring, but I live in Arkansas and it won't be road worthy by then. Would greatly appreciate your due consideration for this old gal.
His name is Steve Bonifant, and his email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Phone is 501-259-8828.
It would really mean a lot to him and his Mom if she could get a ride in a '15 on her birthday. Thanks.
We actually have 2 Lakewood's in western Washington. There is one south of Tacoma and one north of Seattle.
If its the north one I have a 1912 T touring and would be honored to provide the "ride"
There is a very active T group near Tacoma and I'm sure there is a 1915 in that group.
opps did not read the entire post and now I see it is the Tacoma Lakewood.
I have a 1915 that's rough but reliable. I know a guy that has a nice one.
We are both "in the area".
oops. Mine is a 1915 runabout truck and the other one is a nice runabout. No Tourings that I know of.
I would be happy to give her a ride in my runabout if a touring is not found.
Howard what active tacoma club are you referring to? Carbon canyon club?
My 15 touring still needs work
Steve contacted me again and said that either a Runabout or Touring Car would be fine. He just wants an open car so his Mom will show up in the pictures.
He has been unable to post on the forum, so please give him a call or an email if you can help. His contact info is in the first post. Thanks a bunch.
mike, yes the carbonado club that Dave Johnson spearheads.
