His­toric cars to roll in for meet

Stanthorpe Border Post - - NEWS -

IT’LL be a vin­tage car lovers dream come the end of the month when a host of Model T Ford’s swing in to town for a spe­cial meet-up.

“The Queens­land Model T Owner’s Club are hav­ing what we call a week­end tea party and we’re hav­ing it across Novem­ber 23-25,” club mem­ber Ian Sch­midt said. “What we do is come from all around the state and have tour­ing events and go see lo­cal at­trac­tions. Fri­day af­ter­noon, the 23rd, we’re go­ing to have a dis­play at Pier­point Mo­tors from 3pm. “We ex­pect about 15-20 cars, some more than 100-years-old.”

An avid Ford fan, Mr Sch­midt has re­alised a child­hood dream by ac­cru­ing one of the his­toric ve­hi­cles.

“Many years ago when I was about six-years-old I told my dad ‘I’d own one, one day’.”

Mr Sch­midt thanked Top of the Town for putting up the vis­it­ing car en­thu­si­asts.
