Here is a sample of the proposed 2013 Florida "Barner's Bash" Dash Plaque. We will have a limited number of the magnetic Dash Plaques produced, most likely in an approximate 3X4 inch size. You don't have to attend the event to get a Dash Plaque, they will be made available to everyone for $5.00 each. A portion of each sale will be donated to the charity. If you wish to make a larger donation, you can do that as well. We'll be posting payment information as soon as it is confirmed.

As is the usual case, Bill Wzorek has outdone himself yet again with this years (2013) "Miss Shelly Award". In addition to the actual award (and only Bill knows what it will be), he has set up an opportunity for each of us (if we so choose) to make a donation in the name of the "Miss Shelly Award" to the Susan G. Komen foundation for breast cancer research to fine the cure. Click on the link below if you would like to donate or to fine out more information.

www.info-komen.org/goto/MissShellyAward2013

This adds another dimension to the Florida "Barner's Bash" and I hope it becomes a regular feature of the event as well as other "Barner's Bash" events in the future.

We hope you'll join us for the fun from March 22nd to 24th. And please consider making a donation.

Happy New Year.

Oops, that previous post should say 2013, not 2012 but I'm sure you knew that...

The short answer is yes, we're working on that. I had posted previously that we were going to look at having T-shirts made however, in order to keep the cost (per shirt) down; we need to place a minimum order. We received a number of request for the T's however, not enough to enable us to sell the shirts at a reasonable cost (around $15 to $20. each). We will have dash plaques (rubberized magnetic) made (minimum order 100) and we will be making them available at $5.00 each plus postage. The dash plaques cost around $1.85 each. The $5.00 will cover the cost and the balance will go to the Susan G. Komen foundation for breast cancer research charity.
At this time I'll take T-Shirt request (orders) again to see if we can meet and/or surpass the minimum requirement. Send me an email at: vicpiano@mizlou.tv if you would like to be put on the list.

I forgot to mention, we'll also take request for the dash plaques. Not sure yet as to how we're going to set up payment for the T's or the plaques but we'll let you know as soon as we figure it out.

Can I come anyway?

Ok, I admit it, I don't have a flathead. I got my 36 5 window in 2006 (from a liar) in Mass. That was long before I discovered Fordbarn (joined in 2010) so I did a lot of things I now regret. Like building a hotrod instead of a restoration. Mea Culpa! But, I least I put a Ford motor (302) in it not some junky bow-tie small block.

Had I known the wealth of information and parts available I'd have gone the restoration route. What I have now is an all steel Henry body on top of my home built frame and Mustang II front end. When I die, somebody can plop the body back on an original frame and running gear. I'd do it now but I'm not in that financial position.

So, can I come to the "Bash" anyway and ogle/drool over the real ones?

Tom:

They let Lee (my wife ) & I go and we show up with her Rice burner.
It's for the love of the hobbie / Friends that this is growing at the rate that it is.
Last year @ the BBQ I pulled my wifes car in line Popped the hood to show what I had.
Some how there was no interest ( GO FIGURE )

Tom, you are most welcome (and we'd love to see the '36) Like Bill said, the Florida "Barner's Bash" is all about enjoying the hobby and meeting new people with the same passion. There will be Flathead powered originals, hot rods, etc. at the event. There will also be modified Flathead era FoMoCo products and even the occasional Rice Rocket… The objective is to have fun related to our cars/trucks. We’re looking forward to meeting you in March. Keep checking here for updates on the event. Vic

This Just In


Steve (Steve's '46) has secured hotel accommodations for the 2013 Florida "Barner's Bash". Here's the information:

Sleep Inn
900 University Parkway
Sarasota, FL 34234
941) 359-8558
http://www.sleepinn.com/hotel-sarasota-florida-FL536

All you need to do (when making your reservation), is mention the Cigar City Flatheads and the room rate will be $115 plus tax per night. The hotel is in an excellent location, just minutes away from the "Cars of Yesteryear" Museum. I would highly recommend folks start making their reservations soon! The one catch is that, in the event anyone has to cancel a reservation, they must do so 2 weeks prior, to avoid any charges.

With regard to driving distance to the Ruskin Drive-In, it's about 32 miles north on US 41 so that should make for a fairly easy trip from the hotel.
