Here are some summary numbers from the Centennial Celebration. There were 928 T's registered, from 45 states, and at least 10 countries. We heard Edsel Ford II and Henry Ford III speak. there were so many activities that we could only attend half of them.

For us, towing our T, it was 2338 miles going, and we got 12.7 mpg. Coming home, it was 2492 miles (we detoured too Phoenix) and we got 12 mpg. I attribute the drop in mileage to the prevailing westerly winds. I must say that on the trip east, we had one day thru Wyoming with the wind at our back, we rolled along (even at the high altitude of 7000 ft) at 70 mph and got 14 mpg.

This was undoubtedly the greatest old car meet that we have ever been to. How can anyone ever top it?

Glad you had such a great time at the meet this summer! Any idea where your next travels with the T will take you?

We have enjoyed reading all the "Have Ford Will Travel" adventures you have posted. They make us want to get on the road again! Winning the "put the car together" contest in under 20 minutes was a fantastic accomplishment. Congratulations on a record that will probably never be broken. We look forward to your next adventure.
