Yesterday was a great day for a birthday party! My first visit to Piquette, so glad I got the membership now. You could feel the history in that building.

Our tour guide, Ryan, was very passionate about his subjects, and my wife pointed out how much emotion he put into his tour. Good job Ryan!

My youngest and I got a ride from Steve, who was pulled away afterwards to do an interview with Fox 2 news. He gave us some good insights and is a great driver.

A very enjoyable afternoon in the "D" for sure!

A dream machine, for sure!

We have more, but that's a teaser.

Thanks!

My bride and I. Sorry about the fuzziness, that's what I get for asking my 14 year old (who's a photography buff, ironically) to take a pic with my Iphone.

happy couple

A building across the street. Does anyone know who's it was? If you blow up the image, you'll see a truck above the door in a 'logo' of some sort. Really cool.

I like the way this one came out- with the GM Building and the Fisher Building in the background... along with "Old Glory" right at the center.

Jason - Thanks for coming to the Model T Birthday party at Piquette! It was wonderful that we had a chance to meet. Free birthday cake, free beverages, free games for the kids and free Model T rides for the family. Piquette surpassed our all-time daily record attendance yesterday. Our attendance numbers continue to soar - over 8,000 guests in 2013, over 10,000 guests in 2014 and we hit 10,000 guests already in July of this year. Thanks again for coming to Piquette - birthplace of the Model T! Steve Shotwell

I think the thanks should go to you, Steve, for putting on such a great event! By the time we made it outside, this is all that was left of the cake! (sorry for the sideways- Iphone again!)

Most of the vehicles are privately owned and graciously put on display by members.

The insignia on the building is Autocar.
Steve was probably going too fast.

Thanks for the tip, Norman. I didn't know they were in Detroit.

Tony- Great pictures! You must have been there earlier than us- the crowd was much thicker when we got there at 1:00. ;) In fact, we filled the freight elevator going from the second to the third floor!

The old Piquette plant is a little slice of Heaven and dreams come true. Great history and early Fords.
