Model T 1921 - Ernest A. Franke
Ernest A. Franke drove his 1921 Model T ("polished to a mirror like finish") to the White House in 1938, hoping to show it to Henry Ford who was having lunch with President Franklin D Roosevelt. According to the caption, Mr Franke shouted from the driver's seat "Where's Henry? I want to show him his old car."
The Capitol police escorted him from the grounds.
