David, You're absolutely right on that.

It's just like stepping into a 1920's Model T garage: cars, tools, parts, grease, pot belly stove and all. Nick and Thelma, the owners, really did a nice job on this.

No doubt we'll be on this tour again too!

Keith

The bad part, Evan Cork will not be there. He was always such a great host, and I loved the soft ice cream, and looking at all his projects.

We have toured a lot with the guys from Wallace.
Evan stayed with us in Ocala after the Winter Tours.
What a great loss losing Evan, he will be missed.

You are correct Evan will be missed and it won't be the same without him. Should have our downloadable forms on the website by February 1st. Thanks for the responses so far.

It sounds great. Is the Indy 500 club invited? I'm sure that a few of us would love to attend. Thanks, Rod.

We drove this tour in 2013. Great people and great tour. BTW, we didn't trailer there, we drove it. 170 miles from our house to the starting point each way. It was a great trip.

What is the cost? How does it work? Are we required to tour all days or can we do a few? Is there RV parking with a trailer? Any details would be appreciated. Thanks.

Rod,
There is rv parking at the fairground that the tour is on. Electric is provided and there is a dump station and water fill up there. I think the cost is $35 a night. Go early as the good spots fill up fast. You are not required to do any tour but you really don't want to miss any. Specially the tour that you do all the Amish stores. This is a very fun tour that we have done for the last five years. We will not be there this year as my sister's daughter is getting married on September 24th in Wisconsin.

Oh and the cost is $65 for driver and one passenger, they feed you twice and give attendance prizes. As tours go it is the best deal out there.

It's a great tour, well organized, very scenic and you can do the Newport hill climb if you want, I did it in my Fordor, went all the way up in high, not fast. Make sure everything is tight and check things every night or in the morning, there are a lot of washboard roads.

If you have a real nice or prize winning show car, you might not want to bring it on this tour. On this tour we drive on dusty, gravel roads, often ford a few streams, etc. And if it happens to rain, your car will get even dirtier. Last year I worked for a week to get our T halfway clean before I put it in a museum for the winter.

Now that I've said all that, this tour is one of the most enjoyable that we've been on. Visiting the Wallace Model T Garage is one of the highlights, but unfortunately, Even Cork recently passed away, and he will be missed.

Keith

I always stop at the quarter car wash before I leave town. As others mentioned, it's a dirty tour. It's also one of the best I go to. Wouldn't miss it for anything. I brought my girlfriend last year. She's not an antique car person but after one day on the Covered Bridge Tour she said, "I totally get why you love this". Nice people, great scenery, relaxed schedule: perfect!

There is also a Dairy Queen on the main street.
