Neat story about touring the Valley in old Fords:

Yosemite trip is suited to a Model T

YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. – With all due respect to author H.G. Wells, there are no time machines.
Except for the ones we rented recently on a trip back in time to Yosemite National Park.
In authentic Model Ts or Model As from the early 20th century, visitors can experience Yosemite as their grandparents or great-grandparents did: bouncing along rutted one-lane dirt roads, splashing through streams or waking up echoes as you pull up to the historic Wawona or Ahwahnee hotels.
Few places are more glorious than Yosemite Valley on a sunny summer day. Driving a classic American convertible heightens the experience.
But be warned. You may be aboard a historic machine, but you'll also be rewarded with that holy grail of 21st-century life: You'll be a celebrity.
We knew we'd have fun. What we weren't expecting was to be so recognized. People smiled. They waved. They took our picture.
During our three-day, two-night stay at David and Sheran Woodworth's Victorian-style Tin Lizzie Inn in Fish Camp, my wife, two teenage sons and I saw the sights in both a 1929 Model A, complete with rumble seat, and a 1916 Model T. ........(snip)
