The Model T Endurance Run and Lowland Tour is headed back to downtown Hollister for the second straight year this June.
The 49th annual Endurance Run and Lowland Tour is scheduled for June 17, a Sunday, in downtown Hollister. It is put on by the Santa Clara Valley Model T Ford Club. Last year, the club decided to put on the event in Hollister, which had rave reviews for its quaint atmosphere and cooperation from the city.
The purpose of the club is to “perpetuate the Model T Ford automobile and promote general interest in antique automobiles,” according to its website.
Tiffany Ford played a big part in laying out the welcome mat and helping to promote the event locally, and the local Ford dealership will once again sponsor it.
The group is part of the Model T Ford Club of America. At the Endurance Run and Lowland Tour, vintage automobiles from the early 20th century line the street for viewing before the lowland tour around the countryside of San Benito County.
There are various categories for the event. The Speedsters will check-in at Tiffany Ford from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Lowland Tour check-in is at 7:30 a.m. on Fifth Street, where cars will line up on the same block as Hollister City Hall. The Lowland Tour departure is 8:45 a.m. and will finish at Tiffany Ford at 12:30-1:30 p.m. with a luncheon and awards presentation after.
