FMC apparently have filed an application for "Model T" as trademark.
90 years after the production stopped!

Will the new T be related to the old one in the same way that the new Beetle is related to the original?

I bet they did it so Tesla can't call a car a Model T. What else would follow up their Model S?

The Tesla Model 3 was originally supposed to be called the Model E but apparently Ford owned the rights to the name due to their E-series trucks.

Yes, I am with Tim here. It's not because they want to issue a new Model T, but toi prevent others to use it.

Others have already used it.
Mitchell
Pope-Hartford
Case
Cadillac
Richmond
Regal
Grant
Interstate
REO
Gardner
Halliday
And who knows how many more.
Does Series T count?
That would include Chevrolet and others.

Looks like we will all be driving T models in future. Corporate madness.

They can't build another Model T. Where would they find "the best materials and the best men to be hired"? That said, I want one.......in black.

How can they trademark something that has been in the public domain for decades?
Think I should apply to trademark "Wheelbarrow" so I can cash in!

Think bigger David, trademark "phone" and REALLY cash out!

It's all about the money. Not money to be earned, but rather money to be taken.

Someone actually tried, unsuccessfully, to patent the Comb-Over.

And someone else was having a go at selling an "Organic, All Natural Hiking and Walking Balance Aid".

It was a Stick. A STICK!

Simple greed will always be present.

Bill,
Don't forget the Pet Rock craze!

:-)

I guess more importantly, what would it mean for the MTFCA and subsidiary chapters?

It's good business for Ford to do this. Pep Boys trademarked Futura in the nineties and stopped Ford from using it.

Imagine how hard it will be when you do a search on the internet for "our" T. Kind of like when you go on eBay and search model T Ford and have to go through pages of plastic wheel spinners and hot rod crap.

Ford should bring out a new updated Model T. Looking at the Italian firm of FIAT (circa 1899), it introduced the Fiat 500 in 1936. Continued versions produced even now. All were improved to met modern taste. Ford (circa 1903) constructed the Model T from 1908 to 1927, keeping the basic design to met the company's owner's taste for a light (universal) cycle car.

But Ford dropped the model designation to move on for a new design the Model A.

I own both, I have to say for a small car the FIAT is a delight, as is the Model T.

So if Ford does build a new Model T let it be as delightful as the FIAT 500.

For the pundits
- Ford - Fix Or Repair Daily.
- FIAT - Fix It Again Tony.

Hi George,
The real pundits know the following:

FORD - First On Race Day

FIAT - Fires In All Temperatures

Now correct me if I'm wrong ....

Didn't Mr Ford refuse to pay the patent on the automobile when he built the Model T? Seems ironic that the company now wants to trademark the very name of the car that they refused to pay the patent price on when building it.
