    Gilligan's Island is an American icon series. Nice souvenir for me...

    There was a green wicker bodied Model T Touring or Roadster at the MTFCI National Tour in Baraboo, WI years ago. I wish I had taken a photo of it. If anyone has a photo, please consider sharing.

    Thanks,
    Dom

    Ray,
    When I saw the subject title, "Bamboo Model T" Gilligan's car is the first thing I thought of!
    Great minds...

    We’re the owners of the wicker-covered Model T roadster, which we call The Basket Case. It has it’s own Facebook page; if you search for @TBasketCase you will find it. There’s lots of pictures, videos, and the rest of the story there. She’s moving from the Midwest to Arizona, where we hope to attend many car shows in the West, because she’s not been seen in that region!
