Model T’s rolling in to Newcomerstown, Ohio at the morning coffee stop on the MTFCI Tour July 20, 2021 about 8:45 AM.

Tuesday morning dawned drier than the day before and a bit warmer. Model T’s were puttering around the motel parking lot as I got the ’15 ready for the day. We checked the oil and water, filled up with gas, looked it over real well, loaded up and we were off!
