81-year-old Big Bend resident Irvin Walker, now deceased, had to come to Grantsville to pick-up a few things at the drug store.

He fired up his wheels to make the trip, a newly acquired 1930 Model-T Ford.

It is a fine looking automobile.

"It really runs good, the nearest thing to an automatic in 1920," Walker said.

The Model-T Ford was called a "tin lizzy" by its detractors when it came out, but it was anything but.

It is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, the car that opened travel to the common middle-class American.
