Model T Caravan Roars Past J.J. Cardinal's

Dear Friends:

Model T's Roar Past J.J.'sThe Ford Motor Co. celebrated it's 100th anniversary this summer. To commemorate the milestone owners of the classic Model T assembled in California with the goal of crossing the country, some 3,000 miles across mountains, deserts, and the heartland of USA. Destination: Dearborn, MI - Ford headquarters and centennial celebration site. With remarkably few incidents, the motorists made the trek in just 18 days.

Thursday morning, June 12th the hardy group awoke in Grand Blanc to head south on the final leg of their journey only to find one last challenge. Even as heavy rain fell spectators enjoyed seeing the stream of classic cars rolling home to Dearborn.
