Middleville Museum, Part 2

If I recall correctly, it was a picture of this car that attracted me to the museum in the first place. It's such a unique specimen.



According to the signage, it's a 1918 Chevrolet Model T Truck although I have never before heard 'Model T' being applied to anything other than a Ford. What an interesting conversion into a bus.

Here's another photo from the side.



And a b&w version



There was also a Ford Model T, this from 1923, which I took from two points of view. But I'll spare you the b&w conversions.




Here's an inside shot: not exactly built for comfort.



And while I'm at it, here's my dad beside my grandfather's Model T. Of course, I have posted this sometime in the distant past.



And one more with Dad and the Model T, which actually looks like a different model.

Striking resemblance of your dad on the running board and your grandson. Just noticed that first off. I loved the old cars and was fascinated enough to buy a 1932 Chevy after I graduated HS and tried to restore it. It lasted until I decided to go to college and couldn't afford to do both. College won out, which I suppose was the best thing. Then life got in the way. Now I just dream! LOL!
