Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Has Anyone Seen...???

Probably back in the late 1960s or early 70s it was a big thing around here to go to Audubon and travel films. They were usually 16mm films and the photographer traveled along with the film and narrated it as it was shown. The one I remember most was one about a couple of brothers who's family was in the logging business in the northwest part of the U.S. or western Canada. In the film, they found a Model TT chassis in the family junk pile and restored it into a camper. After building the camper body on it, they took it around the area noted above and the TT camper was used as a 'running gag" throughout the movie. As I remember it, the car had a rough "hillbilly" style wood body with a back porch. All I remember was that it was hilarious!!! It would have made a good program for a national convention or ??? I'd guess the brothers are long gone by now. Does anyone remember seeing such a movie? I thought it might be on YouTube but I haven't found it yet.

As I remember it... They called it a one man porch. Cuz a second man on the porch would cause the front wheels to lift off the ground. :-)

Duey,
That's the TT that got me to thinking about the movie I saw. I remember that it had a back porch. I can't recall if it had a trailer. It was just too long ago!
Thanks!!!
Verne

Doug,
I'd have to think that's it!!! It was a travelogue, there were two brothers, and it was in the northwest.
Thank you!!!
Verne

And Duey, not a problem about the spelling of my name. I get the "silent e" dropped off of it a lot but I'll still come for dinner if called either way!
