A couple of Cuties wanted to see a photo of our 1928 Model A Ford. We recently returned home from a trip to Darwin. We travelled about 8240km in 27 days. What a great trip although Darwin was far too hot for me. Hugs Marg

Oh! MY what a treasure. My neighbor had a model A or T when I was a little girl. He walked to work and only drove it on Sundays. I think in the 1950's he finally bought a new car. Kay

It sure is. We had a couple of Canadians travel with us some of the way. They ran out of time and had to return home. JIm and Brenda from Ontario, I think.

Get it out more often, they are a lot of fun. This car was first restored in 1980 and has been re-restored about 5 years ago. We have had a lot of fun.

This must have been a awesome trip. I bet you get a lot of attention with this beauty. One thing I would miss is air condition, but would give it up for a ride in that good old oldie.

I was surprised as to how cool it was travelling. We did get a lot of attention on the trip, 10 vehicles in our group. Quite a few different body styles.

I'm so impressed! Do you have 1928 costumes, as the car clubs in America sometimes have?

We do, but do not go into as much detail. As long as it looks like the era. On this trip because of the humid hot weather we were told not to pack our "glad rags". Go casual.

A nice slow trip in the old beauty. Hope the air conditioning worked well (aka open windows). And hope the dust wasn't too much.
Marg, it was the cold/dry season, wasn't it?

Air conditioning consisted of opening the windscreen a few inches. Didn't encounter very much dust at all. It was supposed to be "winter". If that's winter I am very pleased we were not there in summer!!!!!!!

Hubby changed the seats for the trip. Putting in modern day seats. Was a very comfortable trip.
