I was there about 3 mos. ago. Really cool!! His Tool&Die shop is awsome. They have aTurret lathe off to the side for the kids to do a hands on making of a small brass piece with a retired Ford toolmaker helping them. If you ever get a chance to get to the museum or the village it is well worth the trip. I forgot to mention just ajecent are buses running to the factory for the tours. Ken

I was there for the Hundreth Anniversay and the small air cooled X engine was on a pedestal in the garage at Fairlane. It was not even mentioned by the tour guide untill a guy aksed about it. A larger one is at the Museum, but I couldnt find it.
