  • A few Yellowstone and Glacier Natl Park photos

    60 Dallas club people and 15 Model As just got back from the parks after a 10 day tour.
    The buses are 1937 Whites. The yellow ones are in Yellowstone, the red ones in Glacier. There were over 100 yellow ones in the beginning. After decades, they were falling into disrepair. Ford re-framed and re-powered them, and left the coaches alone for that vintage look. They bear both the White emblem and the Ford emblem on the grill. Awesome buses, awesome As, awesome views!image000000(2).jpgimage000000(4).jpgimage000000.jpgimage000000(1).jpgimage000000(5).jpgimage000000(3).jpg

    Fantastic! I can't wait to get out and do some traveling.
    When I was discharged from the Army, my plan was to drive my 1950 Studebaker Commander all around the U.S for about 3 months, but that fell through when I was robbed twice during my last 4 days in the Army.

          time to join the Dallas club. We have club members from all over Texas and several states. You could always join us in a modern; some of our club did just that

            Hey Tbird, when you get to Bryce Canyon, take the horseback ride down into the park, you won't regret it.

          Great inspiration, we're taking the same trip next month, although in the motor home. Will be riding the red & yellow buses tho.

            Ray, I would have given my right arm to drive an A in that setting. At this point that kind of trailering (close to 2000 miles one way) is more than I can handle. Several of us cheated and flew and rented moderns, myself included. But at least the rental was a Ford (F-150). But at least we finally got to an item on the bucket list! My car is a '31 Deluxe touring, my nephew's is a '31 slant.
            I need to comment that one of our members is a former astronaut, is 90 yrs old, and drives his slant literally all over the country, including to Maine, and again for this trip. He has the Gary Bernard F-150 4-spd OD conversion, and was one of the first guys to install this transmission. He can dance circles around everyone else that I know, including me.

          Love the pic's. Several years ago I had the opportunity to purchase an early 31 truck with original singane of the park service. It was used in Yellowstone. I was in the process of buying the delivery at the time, so was not able to purchase it. Not sure where it ended up, but know it was sold. Rod
          Much of the social history of the Western world, over the past three decades, has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good.

            One last pic. Too may to post. This is Billy's roadster, one of the guys that invited us into the club 7 yrs ago. His entire extended family is bonkers over Model As. F0C15D65-E114-4C93-957A-248982A2C011.JPG
