106 years of Touring the USA, Jumping the Pond to Ireland!!!
Well the Tin Lizzie is heading for a new destination, Ireland, yep, just a hop, leap and a jump across the Atlantic, to his new home. Nice gentleman named Gerry, is very excited to get this little 1911 Ford Model T Touring. It is amazing that car is 106 years old, over a Century. I hope that it lives a papered life for the next 106 years. This model is called a Touring, not a Convertible, not a Sedan, believe me I know, I get corrected all the time, when I first got involved with Model T's. The Model T was Henry Fords Creation, and ran production from 1908-1927. The first years 1908-1912 are the most desirable, the Brass Era Cars. Total Model T production was 14,689,525, over 14 million!!! This model we sold is called a Touring 5 passenger, I guess folks were a little thinner back in 1911. Anyways, glad it is going to a good home, here is a modern Irish Car joke for you, have a good day!!!
Five Englishmen in an Audi Quattro arrived at an Irish border checkpoint.
Paddy the officer stops them and tells them: "It is illegal to put 5
people in a Quattro, Quattro means four"
"Quattro is just the name of the automobile," the Englishmen retorts
disbelievingly. "Look at the papers: this car is designed to carry five
"You can't pull that one on me," replies Paddy "Quattro means four.
You have five people in your car and you are therefore breaking the law."
The Englishmen reply angrily, "You idiot! Call your supervisor over, we
want to speak to someone with more intelligence!"
"Sorry," responds Paddy, "Murphy is busy with 2 guys in a Fiat Uno."
