Time's getting closer. My pal, Jon, is more than ready for the big trip. He will meet up with me at Olathe, KS.

Forty years ago I was introduced to the wonderful world of Model T's by Ballard Phleager of Salem, Virginia. I was a freshman at Roanoke College. I came out of the local pharmacy and spotted a 1920 Model T touring owned by Ballard. The T was Ballard's everyday driver. Ballard and I became very good friends. Everyday after class I would go to his little back alley garage and help him rebuild Model… Continue

Team Louisianna Are Raising Funds for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation

Gail and Jann are "selling" pink ribbons to raise awareness, and funds, for the Greater Lansing Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization. The magnetic ribbons are signed by the donor, and they are placed on the Model T and will remain there for the duration of the trip from Manhattan to Seattle.
