Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: June 21 is a special day to me.

June 21 has been a very special day to me since the day I was born. President Hubert Hoover was still in office on the first June 21 that I experienced. FDR's "New Deal" was yet to come. The newest Model T Ford was 5 years old. A 1910 Model T Touring had just been brought in by the Minneapolis Pure Old Company to be used as a parade car. That was 14 years before I was able to buy that Model T - I have now owned that 1910 for 70 years. This is a special day for me and I might just find time to celebrate a bit.

Dang, you're even older than I am! :-) Congrats, and enjoy the day. Maybe a Model T drive to the ice cream parlor?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Darel. I'll have 85 in Feb. Time to celebrate! (I got the T that I still own when I was 12 (1944)). Twixt thee and me we have 170 years of T "expertise"??

Happy Birthday and what a accomplishment to own a T and maintain it for such a great deal of time. That's awesome!!! I have had one of my old cars 36 years and I thought that was along time. Very cool. Tim

Tim,
Egads, you made me do some calculating. Darel got his car when it was 34 years old, and has now had it 72 years. That does sound like a record.
I've had my A (or at least worked on it) since 1967, first drove it in 1971. The original owner had it for 24 years (he died in 1954, it sat until 1962 when my Brothers started working on it)and I've had it for 48 years, it's been restored since 1974 (was a driving restoration for a few years), which means it's been restored for 42 years, longer than it wasn't restored! this paint job has been on it the longest of any! Egads, no wonder its starting to look its age!
Hey, the car, not ME!!! :-)

Happy Birthday Darel. Your history with your Model T is very impressive.
