Palo Alto Concours d'Elegance
This 1911 Ford Model T was photographed at the 2011 Hillsborough Concours d’Elegance.

“In production from 1908-1927, the Ford Model T was named the world’s most influential car of the 20th century,” according to an owner’s summary. “Henry Ford said, ‘I will build a car for the great multitude. It will be large enough for the family but small enough for the individuals to run and care for it. It will be constructed of the best materials, by the best men to be hired, after the simplest designs that modern engineering can device. But, it will be so low in price that no man making a good salary will be unable to own one ~ and enjoy with his family the blessing of hours of pleasure in God’s great open spaces’.

“Over the years, many different body styles and engines were offered. This is a ‘Torpedo Roadster’ that was recently restored. The Buffalo wire wheels were an accessory.”
