There are always some cool cars at Greenfield Village’s Old Car Festival, the oldest vintage car show in America, but I think the people who display their vehicles are even cooler. Bruce Thompson wasn’t hardly a senior citizen when he bought this car almost 50 years ago. When it was new to him, I’m sure it looked a bit anachronistic to see such a young man driving such an old car (and in 1968, a car made in 1930 seemed even older to contemporary eyes than a 38 year old car, something from 1976, does today). It’s said that as married couples age they begin to look alike. I don’t know how true that is but as Mr. Thompson has gotten on in years, he and his Model T have become more of a matching set.
What folks are saying:
"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
