A Model T for a model Fermanagh motorist Tommy

Men love to tinker with their cars but one Fermanagh man’s love affair with a vintage car has kept him in his garage night after night taking tender loving care of it.

Tommy Cuthbertson this week celebrates his 88th birthday, making him two years older than the object of his motoring affection, ‘Tin Lizzie’, his Model T Ford roadster.

Despite being a notoriously difficult to drive for modern drivers, Tommy can’t wait to get it out on the road but has so far kept it on nearby fields.

A lover of all vintage vehicles, Tommy also owns a Riley Elf, a Morris 1000 and two classic Ferguson tractors but one he’s still hankering after is much harder to find - an old bullnose Morris.
