Guess I will probably make it happen somehow.
If so - I will be streaming live videos & images.
Will Tom from Odyssey Restorations be bringing a Franklin ?
He has some big beautiful early cars ....
If any of you folks have time and want to venture 12 miles north next week. Let me know. I'll give you a tour.https://hometownnews.biz/albany-tractor-parade-from-pioneer-days-2015/
“Eligibility for the tour.......All vehicles from 1908 or earlier, or any 1 or 2 cylinder vehicles up to 1915 are eligible to participate in the New London to New Brighton Antique Car Run. This includes bikes, motorcycles, steam and electric cars as well.”
Do all of the cars listed above qualify?
FJ, Not this year but there will be two other cross engine Franklins there.
Rod, yes all the cars in your description are eligible to participate in the Grand run on Saturday, we have many Model T's and other makes come for three days of pre-tours.
How does a Model T fit the eligibility? The first Model T year was 1909 and all had four cylinders. There are many models listed above that are after 1908 and with more than two cylinders.
Have the rules changed from those specified above?
What is Saturday's route? And whet is the end point? The kid wants to stop out on Saturday.
I think he wants us to take the T.
Here's the map - it's a PDF - save it onto your computer, then you can zoom in on it:
They roll into Long Lake Regional Park in New Brighton starting around 3:00 pm. There are a lot of activities going on and food and beer.
If you drive your Model T car to the park, there is an area reserved where you can park and display it. There's usually a group from the Model A Ford Club and various other antique autos.
The lunch stop in Buffalo is another good place to see the cars in one place because that's where they all catch up to each other and they don't leave until 1:00 pm.
Rod, there no models listed above that don't qualify. Everything after 1908 has to have 1 or cylinders or steam. All are good to go.
Rod, short answer is no Model T's qualify for the Grand run on Saturday.
Model T's along with other makes up to 1915 are welcome to participate in the Pre-Tours held on Wend, Thur and Fri and many do.
I’ll be there with my ‘08 Maxwell. Andy Loso, one of our forum members, will be my guest for the tour on Wednesday. I’m trying to help him get stung with the “old” car bug too.
I believe we have 62 cars signed up for the run and another eight for pre tours only. To my knowledge, there is no other event in the nation that brings together this many pre-T, brass era automobiles for four days of touring. It’s an amazing annual event that I’m proud to support.
