Vintage Noosa to host Model T historic motoring magic

MODEL T Owners Queensland has chosen the Noosa area to hold its quarterly T Ford rally.

The combination of history and scenic attractions in the Sunshine Coast area deemed it a must-do for the members. Some even claim pioneering family connections to Cooroy, Tewantin and surrounds.

Imagine a time when King George V reigned, Judith Wright had just been born, Billy Hughes was elected Prime Minister and the Anzac tradition began during the First World War.

All of these events took place in the year 1915 and some of the cars attending the MTOQ rally were driving the streets at the time.

The weekend of November 17-18 will see the convergence of many lovingly restored T Fords. Cars in the club include models from 1909 to 1927, when the last Ts were manufactured.

If you would like to welcome the T Fords and their proud owners, they will be found at the Noosa Museum, Pomona, about 10am on Saturday, followed by a lunch stop at the Apollonian Hotel, Boreen Point.

Sunday will find them at Lake Macdonald, about 10am.

MTOQ members are more than happy to show off their cars and answer any questions.

Please come along and make them welcome.

If you encounter these amazing machines on the road please treat them with the courtesy and respect they deserve.
