Model T Ford was first automobile to visit Cayo, mid 1940's

WHO REMEMBERS THE FIRST CAR, THAT CAME TO OLD EL CAYO?

IF YOU ARE IN YOUR EIGHTY'S YOU MAY REMEMBER. But there are very few left.

In the Mid 1940 's, a driver/mechanic by name Peter Moguel, who still have family somewhere in Cayo, decided to drive a MODEL-T Ford, by road to El Cayo.

The road was narrow, but with the help of residents along the way, the road was made possible for his narrow Ford.



This was the first automobile to transport peaple from Belize City to Cayo and back

He arrived in Santa Elena, amidst great jubilation. - He was host by old friends from Belize City who were already residing in the West.

From Santa Elena he made the trip to Benque Viejo, via a narrow trail - - He resided in Benque Viejo for a while, with old friends like Jim Ford, Denton Coleman and others. He later returned to Santa Elena, and many years later died and was burried here.

The last place I saw this Model T Ford , was, in the Don Marcus Requena Yard. - - - - ( now, Don Alfonso Aragon's residence.) -- - for history's sake.
