and the Texas Transportation Museum
Our thanks for the snaps go to Bill Foster, Hugh Hemphill and Marshall Huling.
2008 was the 100th anniversary of the introduction of the Ford Model T, the vehicle that put America and the rest of the world on wheels. To celebrate this occasion the "T Fords of Texas" and the Texas Transportation Museum hosted their second annual Model T show. The event attracted 38 Model Ts, from single seat race cars to an ambulance. There were open tourers, closed coupes and sedans, speedsters, heavy duty trucks, depot hacks and even one of the first midget racers!

The event was sponsored by the Red McCombs Automotive Group which itself is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2008. Thanks to their generosity all 1,200 visitors were able to attend the show for free. The Ford Motor Company was there too, giving out really cool Model T posters and other items, plus allowing South Texans their first opportunity to see the brand new F150 truck, the best selling vehicle in America, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary, almost all as the #1 truck in the country.

2009 was the third annual Ford Model T car Show held at the grounds of the Texas Transportation Museum in San Antonio. Once again the T Fords of Texas co-hosted the event. The show's principal sponsor, also for the third year, was the Red McCombs Automotive Group. The show attracted some 33 Ts of all kinds, open 2 and 4 door tourers, closed coupes and sedans, light and heavy duty trucks, depot hacks, an ambulance, two seat roadsters and a single seat race car. The "star" of the show was a restored camper, based on a 1926 truck chassis. Bob and Virgie Colt brought this truly remarkable vehicle all the way from Houston. Almost no one had ever seen anything like it.

When the Colts found the camper it was almost too far gone to be saved. However, when it comes to Model T enthusiasts, almost nothing is too far gone to be saved. The exterior metal work was in bad shape and almost all the wood had disappeared. Nonetheless, using skill, careful research and intuition the vehicle has been lovingly restored, complete with interior and exterior compartments for fishing rods, guns plus fold down exterior counters, window shades and, of course, a bed. Next on the agenda is getting the engine running again and then, once again, this wonderful relic of slower, more peaceful recreation, can motivate itself along the highways and, more likely, the byways.
