Model T Ford Winter Tour in Gainesville
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- The roaring twenties have returned to North Central Florida all week long. More than a hundred Model T's have been traveling the streets of Gainesville since Sunday.
123 cars and more than 200 people are in Gainesville for the Model T Ford Winter Tour. This week they've made their way to places like Fanning Springs, Eastside High School and U.F. Tour planner Steve Ellis says they tour because they all have a basic love for the cars and each other.
"I think probably the enjoyment we have for each other even supersedes our love for the cars,” Ellis says.
The Model T was produced from 1908 to 1927, and were the first mass produced automobiles in the world. Even though some "Tin Lizzies" have reached their hundred year mark, tour participants are convinced these things will run forever.
If you haven't had a chance to see these cars in person, the last chance to see them and meet the drivers is Thursday at noon at the Great Outdoors restaurant in High Springs.
