Default More T than A but all Ford

My wife and I went and toured the Ford Piquette Plant yesterday. It was pretty cool. ( cold actually on the third floor... no heat up there). They have what they are calling the "Alphabet Cars" or the Porter Collection, It consists of the first model A(not built there), B,C,F,N,R,and S(all built there). Then there are a lot of T's & TT,s & a few other cars built in the area. About 60 vehicles in all. You can just walk around if you want, they have info plaques on most displays. We took the guided tour that lasted about an hour and a half. The guide was very informative,but lacked something I can't put my finger on. I plan on going back to check it out on my own(its only about 25 minutes away from my house). There is a lot the guide didn't touch on. At $12 for admission its quite a bargain. If any of you come to the area for the "Old Car Festival" or maybe the Woodward Dream Cruise (it's only 3 blocks off Woodward) you have to check it out.
