I am constantly amazed at the range of " new " Model T owners I come across ....

Recently I hauled Dick's 1915 Roadster Pickup from Sacramento, CA to Kingwood, TX.

The new owner was 13 year old Blaze - but he is no rookie - this is his second Model T - he started at age 8 ....

Moments after I unloaded - Blaze was checking out the undercarriage .... :-)




Then ....

I got to meet John in Conroe, TX to pick up his 1924 Roadster he sold to George in Warsaw, IN.

I was fortunate to see Otis & Possum Lodge when I was there ....

When I arrived in Warsaw - George {on the left) was there to greet me - he is 93 years old.



I sat & visited with him - he was just as enthusiastic as Blaze was to have his " new " Model T ....

Thanks for sharing that Jim. Love to hear stories like that. I had a meeting with a good friend and my accountant and was showing him pics of my T's and I am tasked with finding him a roadster pickup.hhHe had mentioned it before but I didn't think he was serious. Guess I was wrong. They seem to bring every age and walk of life together.we are truly lucky to meet the folks in this great hobby or affliction or what ever this is!!!
Drive safe and often

Blaze is one lucky kid to be able to HAVE a T at such a young age..not just "be with" them! Good for him. I'm just trying to cram 40 years worth of lost time in the 20 or so I may have left! :-)
