We returned Saturday from participating in the HCCA North Carolina Regionís 64th Annual Tour. It was a lot of fun and our family thoroughly enjoyed it! When we initially planned to go, our youngest daughter, Brittany, expressed a strong interest in learning to drive our 1913 T and participating as a driver on the tour. I started back in May teaching her how to drive the T. The more she drove it, the more excited she got about the tour. Once the tour started last Monday she drove all week (approximately 300 miles) except for one afternoon when she "let" me drive. During the week, she got really comfortable driving, had a fantastic time and was super excited to be able to drive our T on the tour! (She has been looking at classified ads for Model Ts a lot in the last few days)!

The NC Region is a real friendly group of people with many young folks involved. In fact, there were six young ladies driving Model Ts last week! Below is a picture from the tour of Brittany with our T. Needless to say, we are all very proud of her!

Take her on the International Tour if she is young enough and she will receive the Jimmy Walker Award.

Nothing better than a cute chick driving a model T in my book! We need more of 'em! Congratulations Brittany (and dad) on your accomplishment. Now, dad, looks like Brit better be getting a car of her own soon, or you're always gonna be in the passenger seat!! :-)

I know the HCCA has run ladies' driving schools at some tours. A year ago there was one at Brass in Berks County, and this year there was one at the New England Brass and Gas. Do the Model T clubs do likewise?

Congratulations to Brittany, and to Dave, too!

Congrats! It's too bad the insurance laws in Canada (antique insurance) don't allow for drivers with less than 10 years experience to drive an antique car insured through the "big" antique insurance companies. It is killing the hobby for young people. You can get insurance through a regular insurance company but it is expensive.
