Rockport Tour - March 2021


In 2021 the "T Fords of Texas," the San Antonio based Ford Model T club, was invited by the Rockport Cultural Arts District, the RCAD, to take part in a major fundraising effort towards the restoration of the historic Rockport railroad depot, which was badly damaged by Hurricane Harvey in 2017. The club took the opportunity to also tour around the Aransas Bay area. Here are a few snaps from the tour.
