I have been on the road quite a few years now.
I have met many Model T enthusiasts.
Today was yet another great adventure with Will in West Melbourne, FL.
I met Will by chance in a Walmart parking lot a few months ago when I was dropping off a Touring T in West Melbourne, FL.
We spent a good part of the day in his 1919 Touring T
driving to a car show in Cocoa - grabbing lunch at Grandpa's Steakhouse in a couple old railroad cars - then driving to the beach.
So I make another friend on the road ...
I saw my friend Robert was out with the family for a ride in his
Touring T around his Miami home - another good guy.
Through Robert I was fortunate to meet Ross & Jennifer Lilleker
and their two little daughters when I visited Lilleker Antique Auto Restorations
( Mr. Model T ) a couple times in College Station, TX.
It is the people you meet along the road of life that make the journey worth the effort.
Thanks to all of you who I have met over the years.

Just be careful when consorting with the locals in Spokanistan !
There are great folks out there we have yet to meet. You have the advantage of getting around more than some. Driving the cars lets me meet some wonderful people with great stories.
Thanks for bringing us this one.
Government statistics say that all the great people have already
been met, leaving only mediocre and less-than-desirables to meet.
Yep, nobody here but us deplorable.
I have been driving my 14 Touring, (off and on) for some 68 years, and it never ceases to amaze me of how so many folks will stop and visit. Needless to say, my mental list is extremely large, and still growing.
Enjoy the warm weather my friend. Keep the shiney side up. Bill
Not as warm as where you are:
On my schedule is a trip to Connecticut.
I still remember driving to dinner in downtown Keene in your T.
I will try to visit you.
Thanks to Will and his lovely wife Jill for a great home cooked Sunday dinner featuring stuffed cabbage .....

In my home we have a simple rule, When you have family you treat them as family, Anyone who walks through my door is considered a member of my family.
Saw the Facebook videos....awesome stuff!
My Florida vacation comes to an end - back to work.
Melbourne & Palm Bay are now added to my favorite town list.
Hope everyone has a great weekend .....
