The Model T World Tour - 125,000km in a Model T Ford!


The Model T World Tour Story

In the Summer of 2012 Dirk and Trudy Regter from the Netherlands started a journey in their 1915 Ford Model T, visiting over 50 countries covering all the continents of the world.

This journey of approx. 80,000 miles (125,000 kilometres) is being made in order to raise money to support the worldwide work of SOS Children’s villages International. Local contribution will of course be highly appreciated.

Follow Dirk and Trudy as they conquer the World in their Model T, raising money for orphans, with SOS Children’s Villages International.

The Model T World Tour Visits Taree

On Wednesday 11th April 2018, the Model T World Tour rolled in to Taree.

I had the honour of Dirk and Trudy Regter, and their support crew staying at my house during their visit. Prime7 News and NBN News both filmed interviews for their respective bulletins (which are featured in this video).

Later, I treated the Model T crew to a delicious meal at Sailos Restaurant, and then it was on to Club Taree for Taree Historic Motor Club’s monthly meeting, where Dirk presented a big-screen presentation about the Model T World Tour.

The following morning, the team set off for Singleton, Sydney and beyond…

Dirk and Trudy, it was a pleasure hosting you guys at my home, have a safe journey and I hope to see you guys again in the future.

You can read more about the World Tour on my website. There’s also some videos of Dirk and Trudy’s visit to Taree.
Dirk also maintains an extensive blog of the progress of the World Tour. Click here to read the entry for April 2018, when the team stayed at my home.
