The Orange County Model T Club is putting on a week-long hub tour in Buellton, CA, home of Andersens split pea soup. Our local club has brought 18 members with 10 Model T’s. We have 6 trailers containing 8 cars and 2 hardy souls drove down. (about 250 miles) We left San Jose at 8:30, at 10:30 Mark Edwards (driving his speedster) puffed black smoke from one of his brakes and had to make a roadside adjustment. After lunch in Paso Robles, our caravan stopped at Pete and Marilyn Pedroni’s house in San Luis Obispo for cookies and a tour of Pete’s garage. The neighbors sure wondered what was going on when all these trucks and trailers filled up the cul de sac. Pete is a talented guy with a welder and makes all kind of sculptures out of cast-off hunks of iron. Group picture at Pedroni’s.
Anyway, onward to Buellton, where we arrived just in time for the ice cream social in the local RV park.
Returned to the motel and were happy to see that the Archer’s Model T bus had arrived. Took all day on back roads from Hayward. It was a long day but we are ready for the 130 mile tour tomorrow in our Model T’s.
