Today, the Minnesota Valley Model T Club is visiting the “WW1 America” exhibit. A dozen Model T cars will be parked on the lawn where visitors can speak with owners and see the cars up close. Several of the cars date to 1913 and 1914, with one or two dating to 1911 and 1912. Many models will be on hand, including a rare speedster (pictured.)
