NEW HARTFORD, NY – Around 30 members of the Model T Ford Club International, and their Model T’s of course, spent Monday night at the Holiday Inn on Burrstone Road.
The group is making its way from New York to Seattle.
They’re taking the same route as the 1909 Ocean to Ocean Endurance Run that Henry Ford himself participated in.
Morris Dillow, one of the participants in the endurance run said driving across the country in a Model T is quite an experience.
“It’s fantastic. It’s like going 40 miles an hour on a park bench. Going down the road we’re a parade. When we stop we’re a car show.”
The drivers will be hitting the road bright and early Tuesday morning, leaving around 7 am.
Their next planned stop is in Hamburg NY.
They expect to arrive in Seattle on July 14.
