Dreamers and Believers
We are a group of friends who, through a convoluted process, have become focused on the idea of driving a number of Model T vehicles across Canada with the aim of having the adventure of a lifetime, raising awareness and funds to combat Multiple Sclerosis.
Hi T friends, I am so pleased, as well as Heritage Park Coordinator Kelly, for the Dominion Day parade turnout from the Foothills Model T Ford Club. It was so awesome having you all their to put so many smiles and to share great memories with everyone.
Cheers, Art Bent

Despite a bit of rainy weather, a bunch of hardy Model T enthusiasts braved a variable weather, Alberta summer day, to have some fun.
Special thanks to Debra for the use of her Heritage Event Centre, providing an excellent lunch. and a great supply of ice cream. A variety of eight Model T’s were on display, and Harry gave a very informative talk on the Foothills T club, to everyone at the Centre.
Lots of public T interest, & many questions were addressed thoroughly by our president Harry LIlo. Most folks took lots of photos, and shared a few old time laughs.
Debra Solomons from the Heritage Centre did the slideshow on the club’s websites, newsletters & Tom provided a YouTube version of the Model T Ford, for part of the “tooling” presentations.
There was talk of an expanded annual version of the days events, with some member & public T story’s, to perhaps begin next year. Let’s do it again soon!

Hi, I am in Airdrie and I am looking getting a museum's 1918 model T running again. It has been running as recently as 2 years ago or less. It was parked as the waterpump (told it is aftermarket) is leaking badly around the packing/shaft. When they have tried to restart it they think something is wrong with one or more of the Magnetos on the firewall.
I told them I'd get it running for the canada Day parade but I broke my leg almost 3 months ago and it stopped me from getting any work done on this. Just no time to research or fiddle with it before the parade.
Is there anyone in the Calgary or Red Deer area that could give me a hand? Physically or even over the phone to get me moving on this car.
