Locally (to me anyway) I know there is a St. Clair County Model T club but they don't have a functioning website or anything like that.

There is also a Model T Ford Club of America.

Google is your friend.

ive been on google and am not seeing anything that interest me. thanks for the help. i guess the first thing to do it find out what way they want to take with it and price they want to spend on it.

i don't think people who are into model t's know what the internet is.

I think there is a Model T owners of America club.

I spent the day today, getting a 1922 T fire truck ready for the Ausable Canoe Marathon parade. It is owned by the city, and hadn't run in years. It was the first fire engine used at Camp Grayling.
Hey Mike, I got the woody back from Berkobein, been DD'ing it for the last two weeks. Taking it to the dunes next weekend.
