I had the pleasure of joining your lucky group of T owners this summer after acquiring the '14 Touring pictured below that Bill Elliott had spent several years doing an excellent job of bringing her back to original condition from when she rolled off the line in April, 1914. Not new to antique cars, the T joins two younger cousins - a '47 MGTC and a '56 Corvette - and so far they are getting along just fine.
Being located on Cape Cod MA and looking ahead to the Spring season in four months or so (just trying to be positive..) I'm interested in learning about other Model T's living here on Cape Cod, any T events typically held on the Cape, recommended local vendors, etc. The Old Colony Chapter seems to be the closest in MA and I've sent emails to the chapter contact a couple of times but no replies. Any ideas and contacts are much appreciated!
Man, I miss that old girl!!! She sure looks pretty and I'm glad she went to a good home! Enjoy her, Paul.
Do you have a trailer, so that you can get to a tour that's some distance away? That car is eligible to tour with the Horseless Carriage Club. A very active HCCA region is the Autoneers, which runs tours all over New England. If you're interested, PM me and I'll give you contacts.
My daughter is a marine biologist who works out of the Great White Shark Conservancy in Chatham.
They are always looking for another agile vehicle that can trek through loose sand and some water for patrolling the beaches....
Sand and salt water? Yikes!
Paul, Be careful storing the Model T in the same garage as the Corvette. They may mate and produce a baby Corvette with a "T" top!
My 19 woodie came from the cape in the mid 50ís.
The family called it a beachwagon because it was used by the MacQuillians at their summer home.
My Dad took it to the 50th anniversary of the Cape Cod canal just before he got sick and it went into storage.
Someday I hope to take it back to the Cape for a few days.
