Our 1907 Ford on the cover of the AACA magazine, plus story

Post by Rob » Sun Jan 19, 2020 11:21 am

West Peterson offered to photograph and publish the story of our 1907 Ford Model K Runabout during the New London to New Brighton Run last summer. Below are the photos and text. Thank you West, all those on this forum who helped get this K back on the road, and all our friends and well wishers:

My copy arrived yesterday. As good as the photos here are I was so pleased to see the magazine. Those photos are perfection and show how wonderful the car itself is. Following it here was a treat but these are a wonderful addition to the story. If you can get you hands on a copy you won't be disappointing.
My thanks to all involved.

Terrific story. And as everyone says, West Peterson is a terrific photographer. I find it very hard to take a good photo of a car. He is a master.
