It's really a great museum. It deserves all the publicity that it gets. A landmark site in the history of the automobile industry.

Early photo of the Ford Motor Co, Piquette factory that is on display at the Museum. It is definitely a place well worth visiting.

Another photo of the Old Ford Piquette Avenue Factory, now the Model T Museum, on the corner of Piquette Ave and Beaubien Blvd, Detroit. It is a very long building, as you can see in this photo.

Henry Ford's Office preserved - Piquette Ave Building, Detroit.
If you ever get the opportunity of visiting this early Ford Factory, you will not be disappointed.

How come that so few Model T guys are looking at this Tread?
I would have thought that it would have been a popular one?

Two different Ford Model T Tourings on display at the Piquette Ave Ford Museum.
Notice that this pair have regular Black Tyres, not White like the one shown earlier?

1912 Ford Model T Town Car on display at the Ford Piquette Avenue Museum.
This early Ford also has the all white tyres. What a great place to visit.

Early model Fords on display at the Ford Piquette Ave Museum.
It is a fantastic place to visit when you are in the Detroit area.

There seems to be a slight problem with the Video Link shown in Post 18. Try this one
It deals with the restoration of the floor beams in the Piquette Plant.
A very interesting short video to watch.
