Yosemite in an Old Ford

Half Dome – Yosemite Musing

     Looking for a special anniversary activity? A wedding? A milestone birthday coming up? Wanna spend some US Dollars to have a real good time? You can rent a restored Ford Model A or Model T for your summer trip through Yosemite. You get a chauffer or you can drive. Model T Tours of Fish Camp (Near the Wawona entrance on Hwy 41) has a comprehensive program of car-lodging and tour packages. The rate to drive it yourself for $400 a day. Multi-day rentals bring the daily price down. Click <HERE> to learn more.

    Henry Ford’s Model T dominated the mass produced market. And yes, you could get it in a color other than black. Black was way cheaper to produce because it dried FAST. The Model A came out in 1928 and offered a vastly improved engine. The company has 5 cars in its inventory and all come with tops down. The cars are safe and you will get instruction on how to handle the last century controls. They can handle the mountain roads at the park – they did it “in the day.”

     Job Offer: I’m looking for a software person who can code an iPhone/Android app for me. You or a buddy?  Contact me.

Unrelated thought worth quoting: “Yo Semite is the crowding of a multitude of romantic, peculiar, and grand scenes within a very small space.” – John Hittell’s Guide Book.
