Thanks to the hard work of several friends, Clara is almost ready to hit the road again. She has a new wooden frame, the sheet metal has a fresh coat of glossy black paint, the hogs head was rebuilt (the wreck broke it!), and she is even sporting a new interior. Dan would be proud of his friends. He was able to complete so much of the restoration, then his illness took most of his energy. His last weekend, Dan was out in the garage with friends and family working on Clara. He loved working…Continue

Dan Crane, my husband, mechanic and best friend died last Thursday after a battle with pancreatic cancer. We had such a wonderful time on the "race" and he really enjoyed rescuing all of us along the way. He died at home with friends and family at his side.
The weekend before his passing, he was able to direct the continued restoration of our Coupe "Clara" that was damaged on the tour at Rawlins, Wyoming. We have a number of friends, including fellow Ocean to Ocean…Continue

We are hoping the weather cooperates for us to move the 23 touring car...THELIMEY from it's current storage with Cassel and Peral Adamson to Gary Foerster's house on Long Island. Getting it in the shop for the Winter and closer to the Spring drive to Vermont. Will be driving down to Virginia on January 5th.

We had a wonderful time in the Black Hills with 250 Model T;s driving around on the very steep, twisty, turny roads of the Black Hills. We did not have any problems at all. It was so good to see many friends from the Ocean to Ocean Tour and catch up with them. We are now continuing West and will be joining in the MTFCA Glacier Park Tour based in Whitefish, Montana August 1-6 and then we will be heading for home.
It has been a terrific experience doing…Continue

Not sure how many are still watching the Ocean to Ocean site, but thought I should add a little content, my "The Limey" is now in Joplin MO and tomorrow, if Delta Airlines find the lost bags we will set off to cover about 1250 Miles to Richmond VA, so the car is in place ready for the June reunion tour and meet. I was pleased to see lots of the guys at chickasha last month, we are indeed a "band of brothers", possibly certifiable, but linked with a love of the Model T.…Continue
