Summary

Originally published in 1936, "Farewell to Model T" was inspired by the landmark automobile's disappearance from American roads, and was the first of E. B. White's essays to become famous. This affectionate tribute recalls the days of $12 tires and 90-cent anti-rattlers. It is rich in humorous descriptions of the eccentricities of the car, the demands it put on its willing drivers, and the accessories that kept owners poring over the Sears Roebuck catalog. In the second essay, "From Sea to Shining Sea," White deftly conjures a classic America - the country that he had discovered as a 22-year-old in a coast-to-coast trip in his Model T.
