my model t needed a part or 2--so i wonder'd down to LANG''S IN BALDWINVILLE MASS, WOW, got to meet with Don Lang, he took the time to greet me and handed me what i went there for. then took me on tour of the shop, [HOLEY COW] BEING A FARMER them's the words i was tought to use when you see something beond explanation. huge complex full to the roof of every thing from NEW OLD STOCK, to complete cars , i stood next to a 1909 FORD, what a pleasure that was for me, on the cover of his catalog it says LANG'S OLD CAR PARTS. well model t is first in his line up, but he has rooms full of other parts too. every one there making you and i able to keep our t's running, and take the time to say hi; when they walk by, if you ever get close to them on your travel's do your self a favor, if you like old cars, and look them up its worth the trip there. i'm truly thankful DON ,I had a super time there yesterday .

Being from Wisconsin we don't get to Lang's area very often. Back in 2017 we went to Maine for a tour and stopped at Lang's afterward. Like Richard,
we were warmly received and had a guided tour by Don and Patty's son, Jim, of the whole place, top to bottom. You almost have to see it for yourself to believe it. They have almost anything for a T or TT, within reason, of course. Something to remember also, is that Don and Patty have 2 sons who are both, together with their spouses, very active in the business so it will probably be there for all of us T'ers for quite some time. A big Thank You to all of the Lang's!
