Then I headed up to Janesville, WI to pick up a 1922 Model T Touring headed to my last stop on the trip - which was today in Melbourne, FL.

That image comes last - but I stopped earlier today at Walmart in West Melbourne ....

Some guy spotted me from across the parking lot,
turns out it was Will with his 1919 Model T Touring .... :-)

We visited & I took a short video of his Model T.

So, Im coming out of my local WalMart and I see this long trailer about mid way in the parking lot and what do I see the but the outline of a touring car Model T in it! I yell out, Hey what ya got in that trailer? I walk up to him and he told me a model T. I point over to mine and say, It looks just like mine and I point over to my car. At that point I think we were both amazed! So to shorten the story I told my name and he his. So I finally got to meet the world famous Freighter Jim.

Bob and Theresa, Congrats on your new Model T. If you ever need help with it you know where I live. Don't ever feel your not welcome. I've been playing with Model T's for 20+ years. Maybe we can do some touring together someday.

Will,

Thanks for checking out the T in my trailer.

It was a genuine pleasure to visit with you.

I put the video of your 1919 Touring on my FB page and on the MTFCA & Model T Ford Owners FB page too.

Thanks Craig,

The streak continues ..

Just left Robert's house in Miami with his 1920 Model T Touring.

Headed to Dallas, TX with it to get a new engine installed.

Well ....

What a way to end a streak of T deliveries .... :-)

Number 6 in a row was dropped off this morning in College Station, TX.

I had the pleasure of meeting " Mr. Model T " Ross Lilleker and visit his shop.

Robert had me bring his 1920 Model T Touring up from Miami, FL to have Ross put an engine in.

If you are in the area - you have to stop in and see this operation and meet Ross ....

A fitting end to a 10,000 mile plus trip .... :-)

Mr. T behind the wheel .....




Freighter Jim
