Over 70 classic Ford cars, mostly Model A’s, cruised through Richmond Hill Friday. It was part of a driving tour that combined several classic car clubs from all over the Southeast.
Organizers sought out Richmond Hill as a planned stop due to its history with Henry Ford. During a stop at city hall, Mayor Richard Davis presented the group with a key to the city and cited many of the things Ford did to help develop Richmond Hill.
While at city hall, the tour group went inside the lobby and posed for pictures with the statue of Ford.
Douglas Skinner with the Low Country A’s, out of Charleston, said the classic Ford cars on the tour were manufactured between 1928 and 1931. He said there are about 170 people on the tour, and “we’re happy to enjoy Henry Ford’s history in the town that he built.”
