Re: pics of early fords at historic or unique places

I don't know how historic the Davy Crockett State Park is, but I had to take a picture of my roadster there last Fall.

Re: My Early Ford Store Adventure

My wife and I toured the EFS on Friday. I couldn't carry on a coherent conversation for the rest of the day. My wife walked out and went antiquing in the village and I didn't even know she was gone!...

Re: An Early Ford Truck Post... Let's see them.

It was so long ago, it seems like it was a dream. However, with my current ride, I'm living a dream that was smoldering in me for many years. Life is good.

Re: An Early Ford Truck Post... Let's see them.

This is a picture of my high school hot rod from 1962. The shiny picture is how it looks today. The sad part for me is, I haven't owned it since 1973.

let's give Ol' Ron a "get well soon."

I ran into George from VT today, at the Grand National Roadster Show, in LA. He told me Ron is under the weather with a couple of problems. One is a hernia surgury.

Get well soon, Ron!!!

Broke down on the Jersey Pike at the Hightstown exit. Managed to drive to a AAA recommended repair shop, using the manual trailer brake controller.
