  • We Made it.. The Model A Museum on Display!!!

    I am very honored and happy to share with the VFF that after 9 years of work, 494 points and the Henry Award, MOE, AACA, Val's 29 Roadster is now on display at the Model A Ford Museum at Gilmore in Hickory Corners Michigan. It will be there for a while so I hope you can all get to see it. We are very proud! (better pics later).

              What an honor to have Val's car on display in the Model A museum. A spectacular automobile and a job well done.

                  Does Val have a name for her car?

                  That's cool. Now I can finally see the whole car and not under the cover.

                  I'll bet my Model A would qualify to be in the museum on the tow truck hook. LOL

                            Excuse my ignorance, but Bert, I have no clue what you posted.

                            Is that Vietnamese for something?

                            You did GOOD, Bert! It's HARD to tipe a WHISTLE sound. Can you tipe a SNEEZE SOUND?
                            A Guy here in town, was talking to 3 Friends, did 3 HARD SNEEZES & fell DEAD, with a Heart Attack, how SAD!

                            Hey Wiz, It is in fact a whistle best described in the written word. Much like "she's a beaut!"

                            Congrats to you and Val, Mark! Two big highlights of being at Gettysburg, apprentice judging in fine point undercarriage, under your tutelage and fine example of Vals superb auto (even the ensuing two fractured ribs due to brittle cancerous bones). And meeting the owner, operator of this mighty fine VFF, Mitch! My hats off to you all! Thanks for all you guys and gal, due to contribute to the Finer points of Aing!!!!!!!!!!!

                                I hope to make the trip one day while your car is still on display. Thanks for sharing this excitement & milestone with the VFF

                                  Looks good. Depending on how things go, may make it there next spring. Any word on how progress is going on the Gleaner Combine display? Donated some parts for it a while back. Wish I would have had more to give. Would like to wait to visit after its completion. Rod
                                  At some point in time standardization was a creative idea.

                                    You know Mark, I am a bit disturbed by this. I get about 25 different newsletters from all over the world and more than a few have pictures and accolades for the donation of the personal collection of deliveries, but not one mention of the roadster.

                                    I'm not sure how the museum deals with vehicles but I think the advertising should be broader to encompass more than just a donation. I am elated that your and Val's efforts have been brought to light, that is a beautiful roadster...

                                      Is there a news letter type thing that I can get from the museum periodically?

                                      I don't know, all I get are newsletters from individual clubs.
