Cen-Tex Tin Lizzies Model T Ford Club

The Model T transformed our country in countless ways.

The Cen-Tex Tin Lizzies is a group of kindred spirits who are seeking a link to our past. The love of history and in particular, Model T Fords is what we are all about. Founded in 1991 in Austin, Texas, our club was organized for the purpose of driving, preserving, collecting, and enjoying the fellowship of others who are dedicated to everything that relates to the Model T Ford. Furthermore, many of our members belong to other clubs that include other automobile marques and have hobbies that they share with the membership.

Our club is all about Model Ts and friendships.
Come join our group and learn about Henry Ford's
wonderful automobile.

Our members' vehicles were produced by Henry Ford between the years of 1908 and 1927. These great cars are still road worthy and are driven in local and national tours.
