Chattanooga here we come ! June 2015

Hard to think that it has been 6 years since that big drive across America.  We have attended each of the yearly reunions runs except the Virginia run in 2013.  We expect to arrive in the afternoon of the 14th (driving the modern car from Long Island,NY).  Larry & Christine arrived in New York early today and we met them and had dinner near JFK airport.  They leave tomorrow for Florida and will be driving the T up to Chattanooga, expecting to arrive on…

Tennessee Trip

Well, it's less than two weeks away now, I'm sure more and more time is being spent on thinking about packing or already getting it done.  The cars are getting a once over and getting set for another meeting of our O2O club. I must say that so many of our best touring days have been spent with O2O and I bought my Model T 30 years ago ( it is now in England enjoying a second life in Lincolnshire at Larry's Mum's home where we visit each year in August).…

Model T trip FromLisbon Portugal to Lincoln England

In late May 2014, a few O2O members, Larry Riches and Gary Foerster with friend's Richard Barett, Ralph Kemp and Pete Smith left from Cascais Portugal on a 1000 mile journey in a 1914 Model T Touring car to raise money for Prostrate Cancer. The team headed North along the coast in Portugal and visited several historic places and places.  The weather was less than we had hoped for, chill mornings and light to heavy rain followed us most of the trip. Our back up vehicle had a second 1914 Model…

Good Day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(frankkwabena99@gmail.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.

Hi Gary, Mick Kemp has asked me for your phone number, as he says his Emails are not getting responded to. I have assumed you are away for a few days celebrating your Wedding Anniversary and Birthday? I too have noticed you are 'quiet' on the Email. I shall hope you see this, and will furnish Mick with your phone number, Regards, Jeremy.

Good Morning Gary. Boy you like to be up early. The Brits are coming! Mick Kemp and I have now secured USA Insurance and will be booking the shipping of our cars very soon. We will let you know if you can help us receive them and store them in New York in the next week or so. I am going to meet Larry at Horncastle on Tuesday (7 April). It's all starting to come together! Maybe we can exchange phone numbers through the Email addresses we have for each other? In the meantime, we send excited, kindest regards!

Do the names Al Della-Penna, George Krivosta, Charlie Hophins or George Reich from the Suffolk Co. Crime Ballistic Unit mean anything to you?

They are old firends of mine. Years ago I worked with them when I lived in the Albany area.

have a great day,
Dom Denio

Hi Gary. I understand you left me a second message yesterday. However, for some unknown reason I have been unable to retreive it. Is there any chance you can resend please? Thanks, Jeremy.

Thank you so much for your message and welcome. I do feel like the new boy, first day at school! I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting Larry, and I have only met Mick Kemp a couple of times. What I lack in experience, is more than made up with enthusiasm. As we get nearer to the 'Off' I may well be asking for your help and guidance! Cheers for now, Jeremy.
