An Incredible Journey

Dearborn, Michigan—

Model A Ford

Hector Quevedo Abarzua and his son Hugo Quevedo Liberona drove this Model A Ford 22,000 miles from Punta Arenas in southern Chile to Dearborn, Michigan. Hector had dreamed of visiting the Henry Ford Museum ever since he was a child. He and Hugo left home on October 12, 1992 with the equivalent of US$5 between them. They arrived at the Henry Ford Museum on December 2, 1994. Hector and Hugo have gone home to Chile, but their well-traveled Model A remains as reminder that you don't necessarily have to wait until you have enough money.

July, 1997
