The tour today stopped at Swanson Ford in Ceresco. As always, Doug Swanson and his wife were great hosts. Swanson Ford is the 5th oldest Ford dealership, having begun selling Fords in 1909.
Which picture doesn't fit in with the other speedsters?
Thank you Rob! I sure hated to miss it this year, but have had health problems, both of us, and have a grandson getting married this weekend. Say HELLO to all from T and TT Ford Parts John and Karen Danuser Fulton Mo 65251-3730
I will mention you. Several of the "icons" are missing, you, Stan Howe, Ed Archer to name a few. Fortunately, some of the other "greats" are here, Humble Howard, Frank Harris, Fred Huson, Mike Bender and many many others.
Also, Bill and Clay Smith and Speedway Motors always make it an incredible event.
Tomorrow is the hill climb. With our N and K, I'm poised to win the "Under 160 cubic inch" class and the "Over 400 cubic inch class" (if they had those classes ).
Take care John, see you at Chickasha next year,
Thanks for the pictures Rob. I can't read so I look at the pictures.
I also work very hard while coloring with my jumbo Crayola's to stay inside the lines!
Thanks for posting the photos.

That hot rod in picture # 3 is out of place and I do not think that is a Ford in picture #4. Looks like a couple of people are crashing the party.
Happy to see you have the K running well enough to join the group. Which route did you take? The long or short one?
Have a great time.
There is always Chevy's, A's, and other's
Hi Rob, I see a couple of good looking Brand "X" speedsters from our neck of the woods birthed in the Art Reichlin racing stable in Mt. Vernon, WA. He is a prolific modern day speedster builder and would make Louis Chevrolet proud. Please pass along our best to Art and his wife Helen if she is there. Good people !!! W
The blue one with the white tires is Larry Young's ACE speedster, one of few known in the world. It's a beauty!! As are many of the others.
How's the K running, Rob?
I'd liked to have been there but I can only do so many things, have to work for a living for one. Also, since I'm planning on going on the New London to New Brighton with Rob this year I have to get some work done at home and save up some bucks.
My T buddy John Steele didn't get his Detour Deluxe ready to go, we got the rear end and the Planatory all rebuilt but the safety hubs and the Buffalo wire wheels weren't compatible with the new accessory brakes so he gave up for this year and will get it going for later. He was planning to catch a ride with Rob or somebody toady and go to the other activities -- have his speedster ready for the next reunion.
Rob, I'm glad to see it's not the carburetor side of the hood that's up.
