My Model T at Weekend on Wheels 2015 – Taree NSW

Weekend on Wheels 2015, Sunday 31st May.

A very wet day indeed! The organizers were kind enough to have the Model T and the Rover undercover in the pavilion, so our cars didn’t get drenched!

I’d say there were about 50 cars in total turned up this year – including Fatty the Ratrod… compared to well over 200 last year.

In spite of the rain, still an enjoyable day. Shae and I enjoyed a wood-fired pizza for lunch.

In attendance from Taree Historic Motor Club, we had…

  • Greg Lee was greedy and brought 3 cars along! These were the 1913 Rover Torpedo, 1962 Holden EJ and 1978 Datsun 120Y
  • Mitch Taylor and Shae with the 1925 Ford Model T
  • Allan Walters with his  1929 Chrysler 75
  • There was also the green Austin A35 whose owner’s name eludes me….

Video pending…

I sure wish I had my speedster back…

Jim Klous shared this on the Model T Enthusiasts Group on Facebook…

“I sure wish I had my speedster back… My dad and I built it in 1965 and drove it until 1968 when I went into the Navy. It was stored at my dad’s house until 1976. This photo was taken in 1976 at Reedley Jr. College in Reedley, California. They were having a Vintage Vehicle Day and bicentennial celebration. The gentleman cranking is one of the instructors, and the other gentleman and I went to surrounding towns with a P A system and advertised the event. This had a 1921 engine, 26-7 transmission, Ruxtell rearend, and wheels.”

Nathan & Diana’s Wedding – April 11th, 2015, with my 1925 Ford Model T

Quite a story behind this one, Diana, the Bride found out less than a week before her wedding that both her wedding cars were not drivable, one had brake failure, the other one experiencing clutch problems… 

Just two days before the wedding, she contacts Taree Historic Motor Club, and I was privileged to drive Diana to her wedding in my 1925 Ford Model T, congratulations Diana and Nathan

I took my darling Shae to the 130th Annual Wingham Show on Saturday 14th March 2015.

Was a relatively small show, however there were a number of vehicles on display, and also the horses…

Other members of Taree Historic Motor Club were also there…
