A “tea party” with a difference was held at Bjelke-Petersen Dam at the weekend when Model T Owners Queensland club cruised in for a two-night stay.
The club’s “Barambah T Party” attracted 14 veteran vehicles – many more than 100 years old.
Ford Model Ts were manufactured in the United States from 1908 to 1927 but vehicles were also assembled in Australia with locally produced bodies.
The Model T Owners Queensland club usually organises four rallies every year, and have visited the South Burnett before.
On Saturday, they enjoyed morning tea at Wooroolin before heading back up the Bunya Highway for lunch at Goomeri.
On Sunday, they were planning to visit wineries in the Moffatdale region.
The club plans to return to the South Burnett for another “T Party” – next time in Kingaroy – on October 15-17.
