Hi there I’m Mitch from the Manning Valley, New South Wales, Australia.

I’m happily married to my beloved Shae since October 2015.

My areas of technical expertise include website construction, audio and video editing and DVD production.

In my spare time I like to muck around on the computer… I’m interested in website construction mostly but I also enjoy the odd LAN game or two with mates. I also enjoy the outdoors.

I am a vintage and veteran car enthusiast. My biggest passion would have to be my 1925 Ford Model T vintage car which I purchased from Detroit, MI, and imported it into Australia in 2011.

FordModelT.net goes mobile (update)

Thanks for the comments everyone, I’ve done an upgrade since that screenshot was taken, there’s now a new, easier to use menu system, with the familiar “three dash” menu button at the top left of the screen, and it appears on every page, so there’s no need to return to the home page to get to the menu. 

Simply access the site from your iPhone, Windows Phone or Android smart phone to view the mobile version.

My 1925 Ford Model T – at Motorfest 2016

Sunday 12th June 2016, my wonderful wife Shae and I went to Great Lakes Nissan Motor Fest… the weather was a little patchy but mostly fine, and there was a large collection of very nice cars.

Shae and I also had our picture taken for the local paper; the Manning River Times

FordModelT.net goes mobile

So I’m finally getting this website up to date – it’s gone mobile!

With more and more people these days owning smartphones, I figured it only logical to make this site accessible via mobile.

Try it out!

It’s not 100% finished yet but it’s getting there.

Simply go to the website on your smartphone.

Taree Historic Motor Club & Weekend on Wheels

Unlike last year’s “Weekend on Water”, Weekend on Wheels 2016 was an absolutely beautiful day, with a cloudless sky and bright sunshine all day.

An excellent turn out, with at least 150 cars in attendance plus half a dozen or so trucks and around 20 motorcycles. There were approximately six or so cars from our own club, including Greg Lee with his 1913 Rover, Mitch and Shae Taylor with the 1925 Ford Model T, Allan Walters with his 1929 Chrysler 75 and Ray and Lyn Lapham with their 1980 Holden VC Commodore and also their Holden Monaro. Apologies there were others but I didn’t clock the names. 

Allan Walters won an award for his Chrysler at the end of the day, despite stating at the beginning of the day “I don’t win awards at car shows!” — I think perhaps a fine is in order aye Allan?

Greg Lee looked very suave dressed in his best, with his grey suit and waistcoat, complete with a very regal top hat. Ray Lapham bought a bright yellow Holden Monaro and told Lyn about it afterwards… was that such a good idea Ray? 

Also present was a very tidy looking Peugeot 404 – Ian Dyball, you’re not missing one are you? There was the usual display by the Taree Volunteer Rescue Squad, including a demonstration of how they extract people from wrecked cars after a crash. The police had a highway patrol car on display, and there was the usual side show alley as well as a small display of drag cars.

All in all it was a very enjoyable day – looking forward to next year.
