Model Ts and Sebak's road tales dazzle at Frick

April 20, 2009

PBS producer Rick Sebak, whose A Ride Along the Lincoln Highway debuted in October, dazzled attendees to the Frick Art & Historical Center’s Model T Jubillee weekend with tales of road trips near and far. Here he is recalling a trip he almost drove from South America:pa_butko_fricksebak

A number of Model Ts were on display and can be seen through Sunday May 3 as part of A Revolution on Wheels: The Model T at 100. The Frick has borrowed four vintage autos to supplement the 1914 Model T Touring car already in its collection: a 1909 Model T Touring Car, a 1917 Model T Runabout, a 1925 Model T Depot Hack, and a 1926 Model T Coupe.

Here, a display of Model T parts and ephemera sits in front of the 1909 model:pa_butko_frick_t1
And here is the 1917 Runabout outfitted as a fire chief’s car:pa_butko_frick_t2
