A History of Lang's Old Car Parts

Lang's Old Car Parts was born through the strength of a family and their passion for the Model T Ford. Throughout their lives Herb and Nancy Lang were active Model T enthusiasts. In his lifetime Herb held various club positions as well as being instrumental in starting local “swap meets”. Since Herb's passing Nancy still attends shows and club meetings. It seems only natural their only son Donald inherit their passion at a young age. Don would build his first Model T Speedster by the age of 16 and simply keep on going.

During his college years Don met Patty Slack. Their marriage would soon turn a school teacher and a registered nurse raising two sons of their own into “Lang's Old Car Parts”. Selling used car parts out of their car at swap meets would evolve into locating people reproducing parts for the Model T as well as finding people who could create those in demand.

Don and Patty's oldest son Jim clearly remembers coming home from school to count cotter pins, screws, etc to put sets together. Now married to Ashley he has incorporated the family's love for the Model T with modern technology at a fast and furious pace. Since graduating college last year Jim has created and maintains software that is instrumental in releasing Lang's online shopping in 2008. Their youngest son, just days old, attended his first car show in Stowe, VT. Having built his own Speedster before graduating high school, it hasn't taken Steve long to know his calling. He's a full time student of the Model T Ford. Steve is instrumental in keeping stock levels, quality control, and offering customers technical assistance. If he doesn't have a ready answer Steve is always eager to find it.

The Lang family has grown extensively through the years. Though no blood relation the first employees worked from the Lang home and soon became family. That same atmosphere has carried over to the shop located in Winchendon, Mass. Customer's of 'not so long ago' would remember the early years being assisted by the colorful way of Tom Moore, the patience and knowledge of Sherm Wetherbee, and the diligence of Geoff Borenstein. Still working part time Tom is surrounded by hobbyist now employed by Lang's. Not every employee is hired for their knowledge of the T. Over the years the company has been blessed to find people who love to get to know each and everyone of you over the phone, people who care to pack and ship each package carefully and economically. Of course some have been known to get “T bitten” once employed!

Though less than a dozen employees work daily in the shop, thousands of Model T enthusiasts are served regularly. In a business where vendors are mostly born of hobbyists, it is a constant joint effort to provide quality parts correct for each year and model.

In a business where employees share a passion with the client, the Model T has taken a small town in Massachusetts around the world.
