Hi,
Today I came across these photos I took at Hershey in 1975 and I thought they might be of interest.

Thanks for the stroll down memory lane - I was 17 in 1975. I wanted a model T since I was eight.

Can anyone tell what state the license plates show on the blue pie wagon ?

In the late '60's or early '70's my uncle George Teters built a car that looked very much like this one. Lived in Phoenix, AZ. I only saw pictures of his car, but it could be the same one.

The plates on the blue wagon are from the Peoples Republic of New Jersitan.

The vintage and state plate are both from NJ.

The 1909 touring was restored by Don Estep from Middletown De. I helped a little. The car was bought by Elmo and Barbara Wurderman. The car is at the Piquette Museum at present. It is on loan
by the wurderman's son.

Thanks for the plate I.D. I'm sure Uncle George's car was still in the family (in AZ) in 1975, so it's not the same car.

Hershey 75 was my first introduction to Model T's. I restored and sold cars to pay for the cars I wanted for my collection. At the time I was looking for a Ford V-8 Station wagon to restore and resell. Not finding what I wanted, I came across this 14. I didn't know anything about T's, but it appeared all original, and looked like an easy restoration. It was also a thousand dollars cheaper than a very amateurish 15 restoration that was in the next row. There was also a mint 56 Crown Vic. It was the same price as the 14. I was very tempted to buy that, but I knew if I did I wouldn't sell it, so I bought the 14. After I bought I kept going over to the space it was on to check it out. I was getting hooked. Before I left Hershey I knew I would never sell it, and also knew I would never restore it. After I got it home, I did very little to get it running, and drove it 10 years before I became a member of the two piece crank shaft club. Noticed the original color of the 14 dash under the hood. Of course I still have this car, in the last three summers we have put over 10,000 miles on it.As you can see in the picture, Hershey didn't disappoint, it rained!
