Labeled as 'the world's most influential automobile in the 20th Century,' the Model T, or as some say, the Tin Lizzie, was produced by Ford Motor Company for almost 20 years with over 15 million Model Ts leaving the assembly line factories. This iconic car was the first car to be priced in the range of the average consumer and known as 'a motor car for the great multitude.' The Motoring Festival is proud to showcase such an iconic vehicle as the Honored Marque.
