Good morning Vinman..... We will be there.... Hopefully we'll get there earlier this year. This year's itinerary looks to be expanded with events that will draw more model T owners in cars to the show. Besides the cars there is a lot of history to be shared and learned at fosterfields.

We recently toured this great farm/museum while in Parsippany for the recent AACA National Meet there. It was a great place and we were sorry to have to miss the Model T event there. Saw the ads, but unfortunately it's a long way from Chesapeake Va and we're committed to another event. I look forward to seeing a full report here with photos. Wish we could join the fun.

Hey there gang ,
For some reason I could not post for the last week or so .
Anyway we are less than 2 weeks away from Model T Day !


Mike Kossor is still unsure if he can make it or not, he is having some problems with his car this year so if it’s in condition to show he will be there, if not he won’t.

Pets: no pets allowed at Fosterfields (even on a leash) because they have farm animals they don’t want any diseases getting passed back and forth.

As a reminder this is an IDEAL place to have a really nice picnic and such so plan ahead .

If you can not drive your T they do have plenty of room for trailers .

Thanks for the inquiry but I will not be able to attend this year, having Timer and Coil problems....... (just kidding :lol: )

Need to replace the rear seals before taking on a long trip (25 miles - is long for me). Will be at Hershey in October and hopefully Fosterfields next year. Had a great time last year and recommend going if you can.

Had a great time there last, brought my 14. Unfortunately this year, it's the same day as our fire department annual carnival. Hopefully next year, the dates won't coincide.

Nice time. Fun place. Slightly lower temps but high humidity. Not sure but I think there were less cars than last year. Certainly fewer T's. Showed my military ID and we got in for free. Smartest thing I did in a long while was getting that ID.

Thanks so much all for coming and for folks like Vinny who helped spread the word and make our event great! Great pictures!

You're correct, there were slightly less cars than last year (very threatening weather forecast leading up to the event, rain in south Jersey so we lost some of the cars driving up from south Jersey, and as always lots of competition in NJ in August with beach vacations) but still a great day! We loved having so many lovers of old cars/history touring our site and the historic house museum as well!!!

Keep an ear out for next year and feel free to email me with any comments, suggestions and ideas of how to improve this event in years to come. :)
