Model T club to visit Morenci 2012.08.22

Written by David Green.

Look for more than 80 antique Ford cars in Morenci Saturday morning when the 2012 Michigan Jamboree of Model Ts makes a visit to town.

Organizers aren’t sure exactly when the caravan of cars will reach Morenci. The group will leave Adrian Saturday morning and drive about 25 m.p.h. to Hudson. After a visit there, the group will take backroads to Morenci and make a visit to the North Morenci school. After a stop in Morenci, the Jamboree moves on to Blissfield for lunch.

The antique vehicles will be parked downtown in Morenci while drivers and passengers visit the historical society, the old depot and other locations. SPS Photography will set up a photo booth downtown.

The Huron Valley Cranks are the host club for this year’s Jamboree that draws participants from clubs around the state. On Friday the drivers will take a lap around Michigan International Speedway and tour Hidden Lake Gardens.
