Ocean to Ocean in a T

The Centennial of the 1909 Ocean to Ocean Endurance Contest

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 for one, am green with envy! With the kindest regards to all you 'T' ers!

Oh my goodness! How I love to hear this! If they get anywhere near Michigan (okay that seems a bit out of the way) We'd love to see them! Gail
