Some T&A Fun
Photo Location: Laughlin, NV 
Posted By: Bob Harris, 02-28-2014, 08:58 PM

Now, what were you thinking?
This was a large Model T and A show in the town of Laughlin, all vehicles were driven to the event. Many of the cars were restored to better than new condition and most were spaced well for photo ops.

If you are going to post T&A photos, you should at least label them NSFW. Nice shots.

I've always been more of a hot rod guy but I really love these old stock machines and they are amazing to hear them run.

Very nice. This dispels the myth that all early cars were black.

there was another line of the autos just like that one, a great turnout considering all the cars were driven in.

Great shots, Bob. I know virtually nothing about these old beauties, but they're fun to look - and changed the American way of life.

Great photo op, I was once 45 minutes late due to about 300 of these, all in a line in front of me on CR 304 near Bastrop. They were going to an event with for their cars. I looked like I was in an old car parade. So I just waved to everyone that passed by. Even funnier that the jeep I was in still has a bonnet shaped similar. It was great fun to see those cars as I was driving. They were only doing maybe 30-35 mph because they bounced on those little tires, I had a 25 minute drive and the slow pace made me very late but I had a ball watching the cars along the way, there was so many that passing them up was nearly impossible. My client was irritated but wow cool cars! ( quit the irritated lady job too not long after)

thanks to both, I just love the sounds of the 4 banger motors on these old cars and you just can't beat a rumble seat.

what an experience to see that many on the road at the same time, talk about the good old days when we traveled slowly and enjoyed the scenery.
