Very Old and Unusual Car #6 – Wicker 1924 Model T

Bet you’ve never seen anything like this before and you are going to love it’s story!  This car, as the story goes, was covered in wicker when it was first purchased and taken to a town in Michigan which – wait for it – was the home of a wicker baby buggy company.  Feel free to try and say that three times fast now.   It is a one of a kind vehicle in pristine and working condition and affectionately called Basket Case 🙂

      Every year at this car show they have a few standout vehicles…I so wanted to touch this one.

        Did you ask? It would be interesting to feel the whicker. An appropriate bumper sticker might be “Have You Hugged Your Basket Case Today?”

        That’s a good one but when I took this photo the owners weren’t around and as you can see it was roped off.

        The ropes are there to keep the riff-raff off the whicker.

    A wicker car…for the tropics, I assume.

    What a great car! Truly. That grill(?), though, does remind me of something Prof Fate would have driven in “The Great Race”.

    What the what? A little stunned at that one. How do you wash it?

    A wicker car?!? how cool! It would fit nicely in the back yard with my wicker set!
