        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!!
