Just located outside of the Driskill Hotel in downtown Austin, you will find this Model T Ford.   It has a sticker on the side promoting the 1886 Cafe & Bakery inside the hotel.  If you have a sweet tooth, this is a perfect place to sit and relax downtown!

Here is some info on the Model T:   The Ford Model T is an automobile that was produced by Henry Ford’s Ford Motor Company from 1908 through 1927. The Model T set 1908 as the historic year that the automobile came into popular usage. It is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, the car that “put America on wheels”; some of this was because of Ford’s innovations, includingassembly line production instead of individual hand crafting, as well as the concept of paying the workers a wage proportionate to the cost of the car, so that they would provide a ready made market. The first production Model T was built on September 27, 1908, at thePiquette Plant in Detroit, Michigan.

This shot was used with my traditional 5 exposures using a tripod and cable release…post processed in Photomatix.  Enjoy!
