Although 1&2-cylinder tours aren't supposed to have anything in common with Model Ts, we had some Ts pressed into service in lieu of modern cars when the 1&2s broke down. Also, Tim Kelly had his new Model A.

Thank you for the link and the fantastic write up and photo page enjoyed reading and reviewing the journey
Thanks for posting this. I hope to haul my little LC Maxwell out for this tour in the future.
There is a nice 1911 T torpedo roadster in one of the pictures! All kidding aside, it is a wonderful tour report. Thank you GFtE! (Beautiful Stanley by the way!)
yes, very interesting.
Thanks for posting.
Great tour report Gil. thanks for posting the link.
Glad you're enjoying these non-Ts.
Eric, we'd love to see your Maxwell out here, but it's a long haul from Minnesota. I know, since I've taken my Cadillac to the New London-New Brighton twice.
Wayne, the T torpedo belongs to Marcia and Andrew Palma from Irvington, NY. That was the first substitute T on the tour. I misspelled their name in my report because I took it from the tour roster, which had it wrong. That's a really nice T.
Thanks again Gil!
Yes, I'm spoiled. The NLNB tour is right in my back yard. I live near the mid point of the route. I have simply driven my T over to New London for the pre-tours several times.
When my kids get a little older and head off to college, my wife and I should have more time to drag the old cars around the country for the noteworthy tours. Yours is one that sounds like fun.
