"Aw, for the road less traveled! That’s the road for me. I can think of nothing more rewarding for the feeling of well being that comes over me when I get behind the wheel of a Model T Ford. Just starting ol Henry up with his trusty "startin stick" produces a feeling of calm and happiness within that is hard to put into words. Well for me it’s simply complete contentment, as he comes alive with his myriad of sounds that dance across my senses and produce what I call the standard Model T Ford starting smile! No other automobile I have ever owned or come in contact with in my entire life has effected me this way. You know, I’ve always thought this condition was entirely my Grandfathers fault. I’m now ready to proclaim the car itself and the many folks I have befriended over my years of association are indeed worthy of… MOST of the credit. It really has to be that way, for I know people who are as smitten with the old Ford as I and …
they never knew Roscoe Sheller!"
This is a note written by Bill Sheller who I believe to be the grandson of Roscoe Sheller. Roscoe owned one of the first Model T Ford dealerships in Washington.
