Ford enthusiasts pay visit to Eidsvold
EIDSVOLD welcomed a visit from the Model T Owners Queensland.
The group formed in 2004 and are all Ford motoring enthusiasts with one aim, and that is to showcase their passion for vintage cars.
A member of the T Owners Queensland Andrew Scott said the event was about coming together and showing the community their model Ford.
“Our first stop was the Gayndah Orange Festival and we displayed the cars so everybody could have a look, we had a lot of interest,” Mr Scott said.
“Afterwards we came to Eidsvold to visit the RM Williams Centre and to see what’s on offer at the town.
“I’m very impressed with this trip we’ve done.”
The event featured drivers from across the region.
“I’m from Bundaberg, but we have members based in Brisbane, Mackay, Beenleigh and Caboolture,” Mr Scott said.
“All our cars are model T-Fords and our club is solely for model T-Fords.”
“Model Ts were manufactured by Henry Ford from 1908 to 1927, over that period he built over 15 million, he sold a lot in America and he had a factory in Canada.”
The club has around 100 members and exist all across Australia.
In 2019 a national rally will be held in Maryborough and 150 to 200 cars will be there.
