This picture was taken in 1936, and it shows a loaded up Model T Ford. If I were to guess, I would guess that it is about a 1926 Model T, meaning it would have been 10 years old at the time the picture was taken. I love these old Model T's. They were cheap (could be bought for $250), reliable, and just about any repairs could be easily made by the owners. Cars nowadays are too expensive, and have too much stuff on them I don't want. They always put something like a "Sports Package" on the car which turns out to be a plastic decorative spoiler that they then add $2,200 to the price of the car. Also, all the gadgets not only drive up the price of the car, in a few years when they start breaking, you start getting all types of repair bills. I wish someone would offer a simple, safe, efficient, reliable and affordable car.
Oh yes, I do have things all set to go for Saturday's contest. The posting is all done all I have to do is press publish and it will go up. I can hardly restrain myself till Saturday. I am in danger of suffering from premature publication.
