There is nothing that compares to the feeling of being out on the open road driving your T. This past summer, my dad and I rebuilt the engine for our Model T speedster (an early hot rod) and I finally got to drive it. We only had two months to rebuild it and hearing it start for the first time was better than opening presents on Christmas day.

Dani has been working on Model T’s and A’s with her dad since she was just a kid. In her essay, she describes how much she loves fixing up and rebuilding these antique automobiles.
Her experience in her dad’s shop also helps reinforce what she learns in her engineering classes. Dani is attending the University of Arizona College of Engineering and her submission has earned her $2000 toward her expenses. Congratulations Dani, we wish you the best of luck!
