Model T club cruising back roads through Mid-Missouri

A couple pulls out of this stop onto their next destination as part of the Hillbilly Tour 2011, hosted by the Heart of the Ozarks Chapter of the Model T Club of America. Jefferson City serves as the hub for their daily trips as they leave each morning from the Truman Hotel on Jefferson St.

For Bob Stone, the Ford Model T wasn't just the car that brought driving to the masses in the early 1900s. It's the car that represents a stop-and-smell-the-roses lifestyle that isn't common in today's bustling society.

That's the attraction for Stone, one of 150 Model T owners who are in Jefferson City for the Heart of the Ozark's Model T Ford Club's 28th annual Hillbilly Tour. The club, which is the Springfield chapter of the Model T Ford Club of America, draws Model T owners from around the nation for the annual event, which is organized this year by Stone.
