“In our devoted love for this historic and vibrant city we call Galveston, Carriage Haus Rentals is proud to provide a prototype of the famed 1908 Ford Model-T. This golf cart vehicle truly pays homage to Henry Ford, retaining much of his noble and charming vision.”

“It must have been a real marvel to see hundreds of Model-T’s lined up all along the seawall back in the early 1900’s as their owners enjoyed a wonderful day at the beach.”

“Veronica and Brett Von Blon (owners of Carriage Haus Rentals) hope that driving our electric golf carts around town will bring you back to a much simpler place in time.”
