Model T Olympics

A day of fun & games involving the Model T. Try your skill on our Model T sized teeter-totter. Can you balance your car? It is harder than you think. Our driver’s skills course will test your skill at back-in and pull-in, parking, right turn, and an area to drive in high gear. The Potato Race and The Beanbag Toss are a team effort, as is the ever popular Backseat Driver Course: The passenger is the navigator for the Blindfolded Driver through a course of traffic cones. Don’t have a passenger? We can find one for you. Spectators welcome.
