Hi, I'm Mitch, welcome to my Ford Model T website. I'm from Taree, on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales, in the heart of the Manning Valley.

 

I've had a passion for vintage and veteran cars ever since I was a little tacker, and I always had a dream that, some day, I might have one of my own - and in 2011, my dream came true!

 

I put together this site to bring together all that's great about the Ford Model T, built between 1908 and 1927. If you own a Ford Model T, want to own one, know someone who does, or just love old cars in general, then this is the site for you!

"Here's an uplifting post. My son absolutely loves Henry Ford and what he stands for and for essentially putting America on wheels. His first entry to a model show was his Model T - he won 1st place for his division.

 

He is a future Model T(er). We began a picture book of him meeting kind owners of Model Ts and As that allow him to actually look and touch. It's been a wonderful experience. "

 

 

 I was privileged to drive Diana to her wedding in my  1925 Ford Model T,

Congratulations Diana and Nathan.
