Ford advertised the Model K Roadster could be outfitted with a rumble seat, and later a tourer seat (front double). They were also advertised with a "traveler's trunk." This makes a lot of sense and as we spend more and more time touring with a roadster, the trunk will be a practical addition:







And with lights on....

You found a good trunk. Looks great.

How many Ford model Ks do you have? And all red too.
Beautiful car!

Goodness, that car is sexy...

Would you sell it when I hit the powerball tomorrow night, Rob? ;)

On the New London-New Brighton, while I was chugging along sedately in my 10-hp Stanley steamer, Rob and Tim Kelly in their Ks blew by me as if I'd been tied to a tree!

Rob, Iam so glad you found the K,s. You have brought to light what a wonderful car they are. Beauty, style and grace. Sales should have pushed Ford to his limits. Maybe they did at that time. Gave Henry the drive to expand. The outcome is a Company that is at the top of the game after all these years. I would rather find an old rambler to bring back to life than ever own a gm ever again. I learned my lesson after 4 of those junk piles. Scott

Wonder if he made Julie polish all the brass?

While I don't think Julie polished all the brass on Rob's Model K, she was spotted in the New London high school parking lot where we set up Ford Camp with a polishing rag in hand working diligently on the lamps.

Julie was polishing brass in the trailer parking lot in New London, apparently voluntarily. I commented to Rob that she was a keeper, and he agreed with enthusiasm!

Thanks guys. Yes friend Julie helped with shining brass, without my asking.... Fortunately for her, most of my so called friends advised her not to do brass....



Of course it wasn't all fun and games. Every evening of the tour involved a lecture or seminar. This particular evening the subject was period correct headgear....

Finishing a few things from the New London to New Brighton tour. The Early Ford Registry and Maxwell participants have created a friendly rivalry over the years. This year, at the drivers safety meeting brunch in New London, the Fords made a concerted effort to show first and take our rightful place at the front of the parking area, leaving the back of the lot for the lesser brands to occupy. As it should be.....

Definitely have to try and get up there next year. No Speedster Reunion so it is a possibility. I will remember not to bring any brass polishing items.

That wonderful pic with the lamps burning looks like it was taken in the 80's or during the eclipse :-)... wait a minute, there's a lake in the background...
Woohoo! K's in Minnesota!
That trunk looks great.
:-)
