Re: Where did Dodge brothers make parts for the Model T

The Ford Piquette Plant is a very similar building, and I believe is the building in the photo of Mrs. Ford on the test drive.

The Piquette Plant's front door is centered on the front side of the building. This Dodge plant has the front door offset. Otherwise very similar buildings.

Re: Virtual Model T Tour

Christmas in August! Model T wise, it doesn't take much to keep me entertained. At the 2019 Michigan Jamboree of T's I arrived a little early, so I was able to enjoy the parking lot being transformed.
