Built on a Model T chassis, Speedsters were the hot rods of their day. Modified engines with components from Rajo and Frontenac provided the speed. Aftermarket bodies with names such as Universal, Race-Way and Boat-tail added to the fun.

Attention Model T Ford era car enthusiasts:
The Model T Ford Club of America is celebrating it’s Golden Anniversary right in our back yard at the Embassy Suites just South of Disneyland. To support and complement this event, we are hosting a local car tour and including the three local clubs (Long Beach and Orange County Model T as well as Orange Empire Horseless Carriage Clubs). We request that you drive your Model T Ford or Model T era antique vehicle on this event. On Friday March 27th, we will meet in the parking lot of the Embassy Suites Anaheim South 11767 Harbor Blvd, Garden Grove CA 92840 at 9:30 AM and then depart for a short tour of some local landmarks and historical locations. The intent of this tour is to show off our vehicles to the community and allow out of town guests to possibly “hitch a ride” in our back seats and see some of what Southern California history, car and antique culture has to offer. Our plan is to depart at 10:00 AM for a private tour through the Stanley Ranch Museum at the Garden Grove Historical Society site just a few miles away from the hotel. Following that visit, we will tour over to the old downtown section of Orange and get another private tour of Bob Babcock’s RWB Party Props business and some other possible surprises. We can then shop and dine (on your own) in Old Town Orange with some of the best antique stores and dining spots around. Your schedule will then be open to enjoy the local sites or head back tothe Hotel.
Please RSVP to Bill Harris via email:
