So, my mom and I were driving along when we saw a meeting of the local chapter of the Ford Model T and Model A club. Of course, we just HAD to stop! I took some pictures of these cars. I hope you like them.This lovely 1912-ish Ford Model T proves that Henry Ford DID make Model T’s in colors other than black! Please try and get over the fact that everything is backwards on the Model T. It is NOT right hand drive – it’s just the way that my imaging software works!
This beautiful 1909 Model T Roadster is truly amazing. The spare tire on the back doesn’t have a wheel on the back because it was cheaper for Henry Ford’s horseless carriage to be made with four wheels and one spare tire. It has higher ground clearance than a modern Jeep Wrangler! That’s because in 1909, roads were still just wagon ruts. Nothing hung down below the axles so that the engine or transmission wouldn’t be knocked off!
I like this daily-driven 1916 Ford Model A Speedster. Essentially just a stripped-down Model T, the Speedster was kind of like a homologation special that became really popular! It had no creature comforts, and all non-essential parts were taken off! It weighed about 900 pounds!
