Scotland will meet the last Ford Model T

This month from 16 to 21 in Scotland the last vehicle ever built of a Ford Model T will be present in the Ben Nevis Challenge Tour. Over 60 Model T will indulge the senses of the ones present at the event.
The Quadricycle, Henry Ford's first car will be displayed and also a 1910 Model T. Even though Ford introduced the Model T for the first time one hundred years ago, Ford Focus is preparing to keep on the tradition. This is what Ford heritage administrator, John Nevill, declared in an interview.
A demonstration was made in 1911 by Henry Alexander a Ford agent in Edinburgh and what he wanted to prove was the fact that the Model T was actually a very powerful car. The tour lasted five days (to the top of Ben Nevis) because the road was in very bad conditions and he had to pass over boulders and snow-drifts.
The model was recognized for its chassis and suspension designs features resolved these days at Dunton Technical Center and Lommel Proving Ground in Belgium. The fact that the Ford Focus was mentioned could only mean that it has the strength of the Model T and can run on very difficult surfaces.
