Breakfast at Abuelita’s and Gutierrez Hubbell House (July 9, 2016)

Dave Ferro hosted the Tin Lizzie’s Tn’Vittles breakfast for July and he chose Abuelita’s, a Mexican restaurant on Isleta Blvd in the far South Valley.  The restaurant is located in a very historical area on the old “El Camino Real”, Spanish for “The Royal Road“; sometimes called in English “The King’s Highway“.  The portion of the El Camino Real running in the South Valley is part of a 1500-mile historic trade route that extends all the way to Mexico City.  It is also one of the oldest trails in the US, in use since the late 1500’s.

Two Model Ts were driven that morning – Dave Ferro drove his 1918 depot hack and Jim Glover drove his 1923 runabout.  26 club members and guests enjoyed an excellent breakfast in a portion of the Albuquerque valley area most attendees had never visited before.

After breakfast, Dave had arranged for a guided tour of the Gutierrez-Hubbell house, virtually next door to Abuelita’s restaurant.  Visit the link (below) to find out more about this interesting historical building.

Thank you Dave for organizing this breakfast and guided tour!
