Well I’m back from all my trips and now will start working on the website and trip again.  Last week my 2 sisters ( Susan and Pam) and I went up to the Model T show in Boone NC.

We had a blast.  There were hundreds of Model T’s.  We did find 3 1920 versions of the car and were able to take pictures and talk with the owners of 2 of the cars.

The first one is owned by Alice Cameron.   This car was the most like the one my granddad drove.   The other owner owned a Canadian version of the Model T.   So, what is the difference, the US version of the Model T is a 3 door car.  The “door” on the side of the steering wheel does not open.  It’s just a bend in the metal.  Alternatively, the Canadian version is a 4 door car.  They made it 4 door so that the steering wheel could be mounted to either side of the car so that it could be driven on the left side of the road.

I loved learning a new fact.  The blog later this week will contain another Model T fact that we learned at the show.  All and all the show was great, the cars were wonderful, the people there loved their cars and loved to tell you about the cars and trips they have taken.  I’m so glad we were able to attend.
