Model Ts making the news

Post by Tmodelt » Tue Mar 03, 2020 9:09 am

Model T pig racing made the USA Today pages. A column about crazy car rallies has at least one photo of stripped down T with driver and pig. These races look fun!

Probably not a good thing that it made USA Today.

Some whacko is surely going to demand that this is abusing the pigs and demand that it stop.

Don, first thing I thought of as well. Probably convincing anyone that PETA stands for Pigs Enjoying T Activities would be a hard sell.....
