Happy 4th July you guys!

Just a quick blog to say Happy 4th July to all our American cousins! I know you have to day off as a holiday because the actual 4 July fell on the week end, so maybe one or two are still reading the 020 and will see this! I also want to say a very BIG thank-you to all those fair souls who made the 020 Reunion in Harrisonburg VA last week or 2 ago. Kate and I enjoyed ourselves so much we want to come and live there! Thank -you especially to Dom Denio for allowing us to share his experiences of… Continue

Message from the UK

Hi folks. I have just returned from the AGM of the Model 'T' Ford Register of Great Britain. I was very pleased to witness the Brooklands Award (a huge old silver cup) go to Peter MacAlister for his undeterred and concentrated involvement in the 020. Peter, as many of you will know, got immersed in the pure mechanics of keeping many 'T' vehicles (and owners!) going; right from day one, to the very end! As one who received hours of his very patient and skilled help, I could only applaud the… Continue

Histeria at Hesperia!

At last I have had contact with Peter and Ian. I received this Email from Ian this morning. "Hi folks! At last a chance to get on t'internet. At the home of a friend of Peter's in a town called Hesperia, just north of Los Angeles. Initially this was not on my anticipated route but it seems to be working well as we have covered well over 1,000 miles now. Car is running well - thanks entirely to Peter - I just do the map reading etc...as there is no way I am going to drive the kind of terrain… Continue

Two Brits have returned to USA - the 'T' bug has bitten!

We are all sorry to hear about your brother, Doug, and we hope all goes well for you and your family.

Peter MacAlister and Ian Evans have flown from the UK to Seattle and have kidnapped the 'T' of Dolph Cramer (it was parked in the showroom of Evergreen Ford!) and with Dolph's blessing, are going to drive it all the way to Florida.

With any luck, and if there is enough interest, I can update the blog with their progress or lack of it! They do not have a fixed route or itinerary, and I… Continue

Harriet is having a well earned rest!

I can only echo the sentiments of Kathleen and Gary Ebbert's blog. We have had the privelege to travel with them and know them as good friends now. The last day and evening were quite emotional, and the farewells were difficult. Friends and travelling companions scattered far and wide. Promises to stay in touch made and addresses exchanged. Thank-you to one and all for making this epic trip both successful and memorable. This morning, Mick Kemp (he of the 1925 Crusty Loaf van) and myself drove… Continue

Dear Jeremy,

Thank you for clearing that up.  I'm glad that UPS didn't hand off the DVDs to some strange woman.As I said before, I'll bring some of them to the June event in Vermont and if anyone is in the NYC area, I can get to them.

I hope that the winter weather is not upsetting your holiday plans.  We hear a lot of bad news out of Europe this week.  We've had only flurries, but no snow yet.

You, too have a wonderful Christmas and very Happy New Year!

Kathryn

Dear Jeremy,

Of course I remember you1 I mailed the DVD's to Gary last summer, as per your directions. Below is the data.  Please check with Gary.  Perhaps he has them.  I will be bringing some copies to Vermont to sell.  I hesitate to mail more to Gary, if this didn't work.  Let me know what Gary has to say.  

Thank you,

   Kathryn
