May - Spring Auto Show – Model T Rides, display and debut of Model T Restoration Project
The Saratoga Automobile Museum (“SAM”) presents the Model T Restoration Program running from November 2018 to April 2019 culminating with the Annual Spring Auto show in May with Model T rides and debut of the Hoffman Car Wash Jiffy Lube restored 1923 Ford Model TT, a heavier bodied version of the Model T.
SAM offers a wide variety of programming with a focus on collector cars. Part of the museum’s mission is to attract children, young adults, as well as “kids” at heart to the car hobby and provide them with lifelong learning. The Model T Restoration program is an opportunity to learn about the history of the Model T; the mechanics, ignition, electric and actual hands on experience restoring a 1923 Model TT with members of the Tri-City T’s Club.
The Tri-City T’s, a chapter of the Model T Ford Club International, Inc. (MTFCI) and Capitol District Chapter, a chapter of the Model T-Ford Club of America (MTFCA) are partnering with the Saratoga Automobile Museum to present the Model T school and restoration program.
The purpose of the club is to promote fellowship, preservation and education of the Model T Ford by providing support to individuals interested in restoration, automotive history, and folklore of its use in the early twentieth century. Ownership of a Model T Ford is not a requirement to become a member of the MTFCI, MTFCA or Tri-City T’s/Capital District Chapter.
