A motoring icon if ever there was one. The occasionally loopy Henry Ford was the progenitor of this machine which, in its time, did as much to change the world as the personal computer did more recently. Model Ts were built from 1908 to 1927. This one is recorded by DVLA as having been first registered in 1921. The owner puts it as circa 1916. When new this might have cost less than $300 ($3300 today). If you wanted to buy one now you'd be looking at at least $17000. This and other pictures of mine from today were taken at a Steam and Vintage rally at the heritage railway.
