Driver Profile: Grant Lundin

by Tom Carnegie

Grant was quite involved in Model Ts as he owned the Antique Auto Ranch. In the late 1960s his friend of his named Dick Bergan decide to enter the Montana 500. Grant went along as pit crew. By 1970, Grant had his own car, but on the third day broke his crank and did not finish. He came back in 1971 and finished 14th in the aluminum division. That was the last year he raced, but that is not the end of the story. In 1972 his hired man built a car and came to Montana. In 1975 another one of his employees came over. Their names were Rick Carnegie and Tom Carnegie. That is not the end of the story. In 2000 his daughter Carla Carnegie came over and drove. The next year his grand-daughter

Anna Marx took a stab at T racing. Grant still lives in Spokane and is active in the local Model T club.


Grant flags out in the 1971 run.

The Montana 500 is Sanctioned by The Montana Cross Country T Association.
