It's either a 1928-29 Model A Ford roadster, or a modern replica called a Shay.

The Long Run

Post by Freighter Jim » Sun Dec 16, 2018 10:28 pm

I just completed my longest single vehicle transport to the furthest Northwest point I have visited in the lower (48) states.

I drove 1000 miles from Florida to Pennsylvania to pick up from renowned steam car restorer- Alan Kelso.

This is his last steam car restoration & the third Stanley Steam Mountain Wagon he restored.

Then I drove 3400 miles to Portland, OR where new owner Grant met me at the Oregon DMV for a vehicle inspection so he could get a title.
