We left Hershey and headed for home at 6:20 AM. It took us close to 5 1/2 hours. It was perfect weather when we arrived home so we headed out in the 24. We ended up at Lake Ontario driving around 50 miles.
Our sales were down a little from last year, but still very good. I was looking for a nice high hood for my 25 TT and found one at the space next to us as the vendor was unloading. I almost bought the original 25 Touring that is seen in Dan B's post "As seen at Hershey (picture thread)....."
The owner bought it when he was 19 in 1963 from the second owner for $200. The original owner was a farmer who only used it on special occasions. He drove a horse and buggy the rest of the time. The second owner was a spinster lady. She damaged the left fender and told the current owner when he bought it how it happened. I was sorely tempted to buy it.. But at the last minute reality set in and I realized I really didn't need it. I thought the asking price was reasonable.
took me 6 1/2 hours to get back time to do a front end swap in the roadster, 24 looks good Dan when do we get an update on the merc
Great pics, Dan! I enjoyed speaking with you at Hershey, glad you did well.
Dan, I enjoyed meeting you and purchasing your 1914 windshield and horn. I'm half way home to Tulsa at the moment and will complete the drive tomorrow.
I enjoyed my visit with you and Ellen as always.
I always enjoy Ellen's cookies too. I would like to add, I like the way you restore your cars. They look like a Model T should!
Dan - Glad to hear you made it home safe.
My father and I stopped and looked at the '25 Touring for a while and were also very tempted. We looked all over that car. It is a true time capsule. Here are some more pics.
Spencer, Thanks, it's a 56 Ford Convertible I am working on. It's coming along slow, I had a lot of interruptions last winter. When the good weather gets here, we are out driving, etc. That's the good thing about winter in NY, it forces me into the garage.
Mark and Rich, I enjoyed talking to you and other forum member's as well.
Larry, Thanks for the compliments. We also enjoyed seeing you again. You didn't have enough cookies, we actually took some home. I like the way you do your T's to.
Dan, Thanks for posting the pics. My camera's battery died and I wasn't able to get any pictures of it. It was tough to walk away from it. If the interior was better, I wouldn't have.
It was a pleasure meeting you and your wife.
Keep up those great posts with you grandsons and your T's!
Ed, it was good meeting you and hearing your son likes T's also.
