A co-worker of mine just pasted this pic of her on Facebook and stated it as a 1907 Ford, which of course is incorrect. I know it's early, but not 1907! Any thoughts as to what year (and maybe who owns it?)
I think either 9 or 10 but is it Canadian? Bud.
Not sure, from this morning at a Meet in Illinois.. she said about 20 Model T's were present...
I recognize that car. 1909 owned by Arthur R. Bergstrom from Beecher, Illinois.
I saw being driven all over during it the 2010 AACA National Meet in Louisville, KY.
The first four photos below were taken at Churchill Downs. The last two photos were taken inside the convention center during judging.
For ease of comparison:
The fact that it's a 1909 makes 1907 an understandable typo or error. Good-looking car!
WOW!!! That's the one! Thanks! I tried searching for what event is going on today in Elgin, Ill (figured it had something to do with MidWest T's) but couldn't find anything yet..
NOW THERE IS A BLAST FROM THE PAST.
Arthur's name rang a bell as soon as I saw it here.
The car was featured in the MTFCI. Model T Times July - August 1971. Great article on the cars restoration.
I remember a quote say that "The only thing cleaner than the car was his garage."
Inspiration for me at the time.

Here is the actual quote. Not as I quoted ! ( MEMORY ) ??

The car was also used on the MTFCI recruitment flyer for a number of years as well. Picture.

Fenders, fender irons, running boards are all 1910 model. What's the serial number? Registry not a 1909.
Is that the one where he found the steering column sticking out of the ground?
Herb, yes the article described where the parts were found and that was mentioned.
Yes it was assembled from parts from various donors.
See paragraph attached.
