Model T Ford Found In Self Storage


Labelled as the first ever automobile to be affordable to the masses the Ford Model T is still among the list of all-time best selling vehicles in history, despite starting production in 1908 and ending in in 1927. The Ford Model T is then an icon of automobiles and we were delighted to have had the honour of housing one of these beauties at our self storage facilities. Henry Ford said of the vehicle, "I will build a car for the great multitude. It will be large enough for the family, but small enough for the individual to run and care for. It will be constructed of the best materials, by the best men to be hired, after the simplest designs that modern engineering can devise. But it will be so low in price that no man making a good salary will be unable to own one – and enjoy with his family the blessing of hours of pleasure in God's great open spaces." - Wikipedia

1922 Model T Car leaves Edgemead Self Storage

Stor-Age Edgemead had been the home of the “Grand Dame” since August 2013. We recently bid her farewell as she now has a new owner. The previous owner, Dr John Douglass, extended a sincere thanks to us for keeping his treasure safe for the past few years. This beautifully restored and maintained 1922 Model T still strikes a stunning pose and we are sad to see her leave but glad to watch her go!

This is not the first time that Stor-Age has played host to some interesting vehicles having stored a number of supercars, luxury vehicles and vintage cars. In fact the list of machines made for transport is quite extensive including caravans, camper vans, quad bikes, dirt bikes, tractors, buses, super bikes and even a tank! Not too long ago we received a visit from a Ferrari F430. Certainly a different breed of vehicle to the Ford Model T but none the less beautiful we are sure you will agree.

Here is a fantastic idea from Stor-Age... Park your car, in your garage! You may not have a vintage car to keep in self storage but at least your car can sleep in your garage tonight and your stuff at Stor-Age. Did you know that Stor-Age is currently offering parking specials at Stor-Age Silver Lakes, Pretoria and Stor-Age Greenbushes, Port Elizabeth stores? Car parking offers starting from R399* are available.
