My 1925 Ford Model T at Old Bar Beach Festival (2012)

I imported my 1925 Ford Model T from the USA, not far from Detroit, Michigan where it was built.

The Model T was manufactured between 1908 and 1927, and was know by various names including Tin Lizzie, Flivver, T‑Model Ford, or just ‘T’.

The Model T set 1908 as the historic year that the automobile became popular. It is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, the car that opened travel to the common middle-class American; some of this was because of Ford’s innovations, including assembly line production instead of individual hand crafting.

On May 26, 1927, Henry Ford watched the 15 millionth Model T Ford roll off the assembly line at his factory in Highland Park, Michigan.

This video is of one of the events I have attended, the Old Bar Beach Festival, at Old Bar, NSW. September 29th, 2012.
