One more thing:

The current National Register for Historic Places does allow automobiles to be listed on the National Register as moveable historic resources. The Historic Vehicle Association has their own listing inclusive with the Historic Engineering record w/ Library of Congress, and there is this bill being proposed by Peters of Michigan: https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/4066/text?q=%7B%22search %22%3A%5B%22congressId%3A115+AND+billStatus%3A%5C%22Introduced%5C%22%22%5D%7D&r= 4

From my experience in Pennsylvania, State Historic Preservation Review boards are hesitant or reluctant to list historic automobiles because of mobility .

For me to have the nomination passed on to Washington for the National Trust/National Park Service to review the nomination was rewarding. At least there is documentation in a file that the car does have a history and exist.

Very interesting!
I see that this subject interested me last year but in my old age I forgot about it.

My thoughts (goal) is to preserve the integrity and history of the 19 T that is currently in my possession.
We have it's history back to the original purchaser and although it was restored by my dad in the 50's it is very close to original.

Currently my son understands and respects it's history (in some ways more than me) but I would like to do more to help preserve it.

I don't want to give Big Brother control of my "stuff" but this may be a way to preserve it for many generations to come.

My suggestion is to proceed with a national register nomination through the NH historic preservation office. (https://www.nh.gov/nhdhr/)

Should they begin to laugh or balk have them contact the Pennsylvania Bureau for Historic preservation or the State of Indiana Office for Historic Preservation to ask about their experience with having an automobile nomination to the national register for historic places (movable objects)...

In the end you will have written documentation on you car and its history. And of course bragging rights if it should come up about the history of your car.
