Default EFV-8 Foundation Museum Has Expanded

Hi Everyone. I am always trying to promote this organization. I have my reasons.

If you didn't know, they have opened an expansion that added a bunch more space, like 5X what they had.

There is now a gallery that features a model of every 1936 Ford made, or so it seems. There are actually two Tudor Touring's, one is a Stainless Steel bodied car. There's also a 36 rolling chassis.

I really enjoyed the Flathead Speed gallery! Saw a pair of those copper Federal Mogul heads in there, a Hilborn injected intake, and an intake closely related to the one used on the 1935 Indy cars. You see those things, but not always in a twenty foot space.

Anyway, put it tops on the places to visit when you pass through Auburn, IN. When you're done, hop over to the Auburn Cord Duesenberg historic building and Museum.

I had a fabulous time seeing a lot of my 'Road Family' yesterday.

I'll stop now.

Jeff...It was great seeing you at the Foundation Museum on Friday! Ran into a lot of "Road Family" also. They are doing wonders at the museum. A great place to visit. Should be a great time there this August for the Central National Meet.

Thanks for posting Jeff, we talked about a future plan on visiting in June if we head to the Model T homecoming in Richmond, tied into a trip ending in Wisconsin.

It a cool place. I stopped in for a visit last month.
That stainless car is an incredible thing to see in person!
