April 16-Model T

April 16-Model T, originally uploaded by NedraI.

We have friends that have Model Ts and have enjoyed going for rides with them. We decided we would like to join the fun and began looking for our own Model T. Last fall we drove to Chattanooga TN in one weekend to take a look at one! Today we drove to High Falls, NY, a mere 2.5 hour trip. We had seen lots of pictures of it and knew it looked promising. It was love at first sight for my husband. We put down a deposit and now have to figure out how we'll get it home. I'm glad frost season is almost over because my car is about to lose it's spot in the garage for now.

This beauty was in one family for 3 generations. Originally it was used to pick people up at the train station and take them into town. The family that owned it just drove it on their own property and didn't take it out in the rain. They put it out on the road in 1971 (I think) for their daughter's wedding. It's original parts and is in great shape. We are excited to welcome it to our family. We'll be taking it on the road and will have many adventures with it. I bet it will be used in a couple more weddings in the future as well.
