Here's a little news bit I received too late to get in Old Cars Weekly, but since we're based in Wisconsin and have excellent clubs and the great Wisconsin Automotive Museum, I wanted to get the word out in time for people to attend. Also, it's the Model T's centennial and even though the party at The Henry Ford is over, the rest of us shouldn't let it end!
The fourth annual “Model T Day” will bring Model T Fords, Model T owners, and the community together for a fun and educational event at the Wisconsin Automotive Museum in Hartford on Saturday, August 16, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
A variety of Model T Fords built between 1908 and 1927 will be on display outside the museum, including a beautiful restored 1909 touring car. Demonstrations on starting and driving a Model T will be given, along with free Model T rides around the parking lot. Hamburgers, bratwurst, and other refreshments will be available on the museum grounds. Author Tom Collins will have his book “The Legendary Model T Ford” available for purchase. Reduced admission to the Wisconsin Automotive Museum will be available for this day only.
“Model T Day” is sponsored by the Dairyland Tin Lizzies chapter of the Model T Ford Club of America. All stock and 1920’s era modified Model T Fords are welcome to participate in the show, and everyone is welcome to attend. For more information, visit the Dairyland Tin Lizzies Web site here.
