In their devoted love for this historic and vibrant city, is proud to provide a prototype of the famed 1908 Ford Model-T. This golf cart vehicle truly pays homage to Henry Ford, retaining much of his noble and charming vision.
It must have been a real marvel to see hundreds of Model-T’s lined up all along the seawall back in the early 1900’s as their owners enjoyed a wonderful day at the beach.
