    What a nice capture Terence, it looks like it has been there all along. Takes one back to that tune period.

  • Thanks, Michele. Coincidentally, later in our trip we pass Model T after Model T on the highway as they were likely on their way to some 4th of July car show, but not a one of them looked like it actually came from the turn of the 20th Century, as they were all restored and shiny. I had already taken this photo, so didn’t take all that much interest in the others.

    Gorgeous vintage car and actually a Ford! I’m a Ford driver since more than 40 years ;)))

  • I have owned a lot of Mustangs and T-Birds during my lifetime. I have now switched to Jeeps, since I need to get a bit further into the boonies to find great photographic scenes!
