As shared by Bill James - Winchester, KY
This morning, I saw on Facebook a reference to this little book published in 1923 by the Ford Motor Company in Canada. Apparently, it was a handout in the day of Beatrix Potter and the Peter Cottontail stories, and was purportedly given with each 1923 T sold.
"The Land of Getwuntoo" is a story about the Rabbits buying Model T's as the family increases. Starting with a roadster they then need a Touring and eventually a truck.
I was able to download a PDF of the booklet from Open Library at https://openlibrary.org/works/OL13376329W/The_land_of_Getwuntoo and have printed it out to read to my grandkids, even though you two are to old to "really" appreciate the book. Thought you two would like to see it, and maybe even have it to print, also.
Very nice. I will have to read this to my grandchildren. Thank you. Bill
Here is the link to the PDF version:
That's really cute!!
That's why we have Newbys from time to time; They have been to the land of Getwuntoo.
Wait! Wait! Wait! --
That is disparaging to Rabbits!
Your suggesting that if someone gets a Model T they will breed like rabbits.
We already know that Model T's breed but it is unfair to suggest that Model T owners will produce many offsprings.
The truth is that the male will spend so much time in the garage working on the T that there will be little time for other things like bathing etc.

My wife bought me a mint original for Christmas 3 yrs ago - it's great.
Note who owns the coupe in that story.
Who, Tim, a chicken?
With a copyright of 1923, could it be that Ford Motor Company of Canada is responsible for the "doctor's coupe" farce?
