Trailer loaded, Michigan to Florida! Friends make a tour much better. Our second winter tour making a habit of it I hope. We loaded Gord & Marsha Koll's car in the double trailer in November, I just loaded Kelly & mine. We are going together in a four door pickup. Gord & I share the driving, Kelly & Marsha knit and we have great conversation. Meeting up with friends at the tour! Friends Make "The" Tour! Happy Touring to all this season and beyond!

I am in Florida dropping off a 1920 Touring T in Miami.

I just finished the spring maintance, tune up and put the 1911 T in the trailer for the trip to Florida. We are supposed to have a good size rain storm here, the next couple on days. We leave for Florida on Friday.
We are doing the Ocala tour the first week and the second week we are going to Punta Gorda Florida to see friends and play Blue grass music for a week.

Kim and I are going to the Florida Flywheelers the rest of this week and then on to Ocala on Saturday. Can't wait to try out my new Warford! BTW. We have lots of MTFCA merchandise packed in the trailer to sell to everyone. Jerry Kramer

Jerry,

I am going to be in the Miami area - I might go to Key West - not in a hurry to leave beautiful Florida at the present ..... :-)

From what I hear, you don't want to go home to Dayton just yet!

Jim

When I last inquired about having a car hauled out of FL I was informed that FL was a "dead zone" and you didn't ship in or out. Anyway, since you've found yourself in the Sunshine State, the weather's beautiful right now, so enjoy yourself. If you're still in the state then, come to Ocala and meet a good bunch of people

Scott,

I try to meet supply & demand.

Certain markets have little to no demand to haul vehicles in,
Florida is one of them.

That is why on occasion you will see good deals on Model T's and other cars ....

The last time I came to Florida it was to pick up a Model T Torpedo that was donated to the MTFCA Museum.

That was about this time last if memory serves correct.

I serve the lower 48 states year round (subject to safe driving conditions).

I am headed now up Hwy 1 to Isle of Palms, SC to drop off.

I did pass by Ocala earlier in the week when I picked up a vintage FJ Cruiser but will not be passing by again heading out.

If you are participating in the Winter Tour I hope you & my fellow MTFCA members travel safely .... :-)
