Ford Calls for a Worldwide Recall to Join the 2008 Model T Ford Centennial T Party

A worldwide recall for all Model T manufactured and are still in existence was announced recently by Ford the producer of high quality Volvo vent visor. The said recall does not involve any safety issues but is part of the fun to celebrate the 2008 Model T Ford Centennial T Party which is to be held at the Wayne County Fairgrounds and Exposition Center in Richmond, Indiana.

The event will last for a week running from July 21 to 26, 2008 and has a theme the “party of the century” for the “car of the century”. Around 15 million Model T cars were built between 1908 and 1927. It is estimated that there are still at least 500,000 out of the 15 million that survive. 1,500 out of the 500,000 surviving T models have reached as far Australia, England, and Norway. Next July it is also expected in East Central Indiana to celebrate the Ford Model T’s 100th birthday which will become the largest gathering of Model Ts since they rolled off the factory.

It is the Model T Ford Club of America that will host the Centennial T Party that will take its visitors back to the time when Model T was new. As part of the event are other events such as:

• Model T Car Show,

• a mock “recall inspection”,

• driving and challenge games, a swap meet,

• a series of Model T road tours along the Old National Road and to historic towns, a vintage baseball game,

• a period clothing store and fashion show

• a vintage airshow with WWI and pre-1930 planes

• stunt biplanes performing on one of the nation’s largest grass strip runways

• a visit to the nearby Model T Ford Museum

• a giant birthday cake

T party attendees will also get the chance to behold the T’s rare, common, and bizarre. Starting from the Model T campers and tent-topped Touring Ts, to ambulances, delivery wagons and even Model T snowmobiles, backcountry roads will be graced once again by the “car of the century”.

The first ever production Model T Ford specifically the 1909 model was assembled in Detroit on September 27, 1908, which is the time when most Americans had not gone more than 20 miles from home. It was Henry Ford’s vision together with his assembly-line techniques that produce the car that everyone can afford.

The 1909 Model T was sold for $825 during that time. Then in 1965, the Model T Ford Club of America (MTFCA) was organized. It is the world’s largest Model T club with over 100 chapters across the US, Europe, Canada, Australia, and Argentina. The MTFCA brings together people who share the same passion for the Model T’s history, evolution, and above all to celebrate the historic place that the T have in America.
