I did it – a new car (well 1919 anyway)

I told you earlier I had the lust for an old car. Today I made arrangements to purchase a 1919 Model T Ford roadster all the way over on the coast in Fortuna, CA.

1919 Model T Roadster

Surprisingly I received the ok from She Who Must Be Obeyed (SWMBO) who thought it was cute. I have to drive for about six hours to go and get it but that’s ok. I’m going to take the tin tepee up there and rent a car trailer from U-Haul and drive back the next day. If I were to drive it back it would take a couple of days;  “Half the speed – Twice the fun.”

Now I’ll have something to drive in the upcoming centenary of the Lincoln Highway (I’m sure there will be some celebrations somewhere). Also I can explore the back country nearby, once the snow stops and Spring arrives.

It is a great post-Christmas present.
