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.
