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.
Great photos. Those of your dad are special!
Love the truck/bus! Quirk of the job...
I love the pictures of your dad and the old car. What year was that?
Aren't they amazing? Hard to believe the technology now.
so fun! I love the occasional times I see a really old car out on the road, painted a bright yellow or mint green... :)
I've really been enjoying all these photos from you and the museum. :)
i am so attracted to the cars of yesteryear!! these images are great!!
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!
