Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Prom night

Well, my son is a senior this year, so this is his last Prom. His date was a friend of his that he has known since they were in third grade.



They went as a group with some of their other friends. They are all good kids, in Student leadership, National honor society, etc.



My son, of course, wanted me to chauffeur him and his date to dinner and then from dinner to the Prom.





The sunset was beautiful and getting towards dusk as we made the trip from the restaurant to the Prom, so I had an opportunity to use the acetylene headlights.



I'm not sure if it more fun to have a Dad with a Model T or to BE the Dad with the Model T...

How can Spencer be that old??? I remember when he was born................ I remember the little speedster you made him.

He'd better keep that girl.

Hmmmm boy has this made my little girl in Mississippi ill. Seems like yesterday when they danced at the 100 yr celebration. We are both lucky parents to have such fine children.

Keith,
Great pics and wonderful young people enjoying your Model T. I know you're proud of your son, and what a great opportunity to share your car and our hobby with your son and his friends.

Thank you for sharing.

John-
Oh, yeah. I remember that little girl...



Did you get a picture of them dancing?

I understand her prom was the same night. I saw a phone image of her all dolled up. I don't suppose she asked you to be chauffeur for her and her date?


I think it's a good thing Spencer's date was an old pal!

Keith, all grown up but still daddy's little girl.
I do somewhere on a laptop I'll see if I can find them and post.

Nice pictures, and it looks like everyone had a good time. Be sure to attach a paragraph to the photo's when you store them so a hundred years from now your family will know who, where, what. So Keith will your son be leaving for college soon?

Keith and John,

Congratulations! It looks like you’ve both have done a great job of getting them started off right.
They grow up so fast – enjoy all the moments you can.

And Keith – great car and outfit.

Respectfully submitted,

I also chauffeured my daughter to the prom but she would not let me wear the cap.

It's about time the girls start dating the car not the driver...in the day if a guy didn't have the car, he didn't have the girl!
Remember when??

Well, since we're posting prom pics, this is my friend Sandi's daughter -- although I consider her to be mine. Sophomore, 15 and gorgeous, hard to believe she is this grown up already. Athlete, brilliant scholar, musician - (twice state champion old time fiddler for her age group + plays fiddle & guitar on some of our show dates), up for just about anything from dirt bikes to gopher hunting to academic competitions, her Willys CJ2A to being homecoming princess, she is always ready for a new adventure. We haven't been able to get to the Model T driving yet but we will.

She was pretty sunburned in the picture, she was a a track meet all day the day of the prom. Ran in several events -- no sunscreen.

Here is a link to the story in last Sunday's Butte, Montana Standard newspaper about her success running and the health challenges she has faced.

Stan, Really nice job by Sandi!

Keith, Nice kids and nice job driving them to the Prom. Nice outfit also, and your acetlyene lights look perfect. I really like the Prest O - Lite tank too.

Keith (The other one)

Keith -- kid is by Sandi, dress, shoes and hair by Uncle Stan. Also the Diamond earrings. And the guns and the dirt bike and the CJ2A and the fiddle and the guitars and the mandolin and the mechanic's tools she wanted (and got) for her 14th birthday. Car is coming soon, we are shopping. I want to get her a Sport Trac but she doesn't think it is cool enough for a high school girl. She's a great kid as is her older brother.

Congratulations to Spencer and his lovely date!
My son, Jackson will participate in his Aussie Prom equivalent tomorrow night. He knocked back my offer of Model T transport. Where did I go wrong??? He will travel with his date in a Stretch Limo Hummer!

Warick-

Be sure to send pictures!

I think it is cool that not only us "grown ups" have met "Model T" friends, but our kids have too!

Here are those two knuckleheads on their way to the Grand Canyon...

My daughter's high school boyfriends dad drive them to prom in a 24 sedan. It was very nice over restored car. I hadn't yet bought a T at that time!

Not T related, but a Ford connection - My wife's cousin drove his dad's '66 Mustang Ragtop to his senior prom. Two decades later his son drove the same Mustang to his senior prom. The car is still pristine, and the hope is that his grandchild will drive the same Mustang to his/her senior prom. No, the car is not for sale at any, and I do mean any, price.

That's a nice thing about cars like a Mustang .... they made LOTS of them. If someone
really wants one, they are out there to be bought. Different story with that 22 Kissel, 31
Auburn, or 56 Caribbean.
