        Thanks I went up to Craig Beek's to see the cars, they were great! I may have spoken to you I milled around the group a lot. I was going to drive the '36 PU there but I thought 'it's too stinkin' hot' then when I realized just what the Central Iowa Model A Club had endured I realized I was just a big weenie!! I saw on the weather that nite that the QC got a torrential downpour and quite a lightning show. Take care....

          Jeff that is true i had mine tucked safely in the trailer, Unfortunately you did not speak to me I was sicker than a dog and spent the day in my room asleep,however I did attend the presentation he did the night before quite an impressive collection. It is said he has every kind of brass era t that ford made made except one a 1908 2 pedal 2 lever also called a 1909 but said he knew where some were. Quite a guy. wish i had been there and able to meet you talked to a few guys who had just acquired model t"s and offered any help I could here on the vff in the t section we need to pump it up. By the way beautiful area and wonderful people some folks from the illinois chapter 5 of them joined us in davenport.

            Yes there was a group from Forever Fours down in Peoria that came up. I was sitting talking to them and didn't realize they were from Peoria until they got up to leave; I didn't want to hold them up I wanted to ask them about Rainmaker Ron and what was going on in his circles..... I don't know him real well only met him briefly about 8 years ago. Pretty knowledgable Model A guy for sure plus he has a '35 Ford pickup I needed to pick his brain on a couple things.

            When the Cabriolet was leaving north on 7th St. along with several others, heading for the John Deere Commons down by Plow Planter, I got behind them to listen to the cars and see them driving. A Moline cop was so taken by the Model A's that I saw him run a red light while he was gawking at them. Luckily there was a gap in traffic it could have been bad!!

          Where is your clubs big tour this season?
          by Curly
          Our Alaskan A’s just returned from a week long trip to Kodiak, Alaska. We had about 20 vintage cars half were Model A’s. The ferry ride was a nine hour ferry each way. The cars were enclosed in the belly of the ship the whole way.
          The folks in Kodiak were so appreciative and they really rolled out the red carpet for us. One member lost a main bearing on the way but his son had him another...

          Model A Day in the Amana Colonies in Iowa August 19th
          by Tom Wesenberg
          After I left the Studebaker National Meet in South Bend on May 6th, I needed to kill a day before meeting a couple of old Army buddies in Iowa. So when I stopped at the roadside rest in Iowa on May 7th, I asked the lady "what can I do or see to kill a day". She gave me a small newspaper telling about the Amana Colonies, and mentioned that the Maipole Festival was May 6th and 7th. The 6th...
