Steve: Did you bring your tape measure along for the trip. It looks like one hanging on your bib overalls!

Well it was a month ago this minute (Cal Time) that I had my 4 way bypass. I am doing great now,

I saw Jim Rodell Sr., Adam Doleshal, Brendan Dougherty and a few others.

We have our '14 Touring in the Blue Ribbon area. I don't consider it a "show car", but it's the only brass T on display in the Blue Ribbon area.

The crowds seem smaller this year, but it's still fun. I haven't bought much, but that's ok.

I went to Car Show on Thursday wit da '19 Touring T.........dude at that gate says "You should register this car".......I said "Nah........I didn't drive it here to show it"......dude says "You HAVE to register your car".......I said "Nah, it isn't good enough" (it really is good enough).........dude says "YOU HAVE TO REGISTER THIS CAR."........I said "OK then".......(while literally LOL).......so $20 later (and saved $4 by registering) the THREE of us are on the grounds just east of the F&W Publishing office building, the T is in a prime spot and we had a VERY short walk (NONE) to the grounds....... YAY....... ^.^

How is the weather at the Iola Show this year. The last time I went, it was so hot and humid, (upper 90's) I couldn't get away from the beer parlor.

Bill,
So that's why we haven't been hearing much from you. Glad you are doing so well. Sounds like you decided to have this problem in the middle of our heat wave (or just before it?).
BTW, the Redding Rambling A's stopped by the Bolt Museum last month. I didn't know a one of them, although they said they had heard my name (years ago we were quite active when we lived in Dunsmuir). Boy, made me feel old. . . .all but one of the folks I named had passed on.
T'

Bill, Steve goes no where without his florescent green tape measure. I'd like to see him change colors every once and awhile. Just to keep folks guessing. Just like he always pays for anything under 5 bucks using SBA dollar coins to mess with the kids working the cash registers . Never leaves home without two or three.

Craig - I checked out all the T's I saw, but didn't see yours... :-( Bummer! I wish we could have met. Maybe next year.

Richard - The weather at Iola was nice to a little warm, like 80 to low 80's. Sunny every day except today when it was cloudy in the AM., then we left.

I scored a few small bargains in the swap meet, no big deal.

Keith

RATS Keith.......I'd have loved to have met you too.
If you remember a '27 Packard just a tad NE of the office building I wound up directly across from it. Maybe only 150' from the building. Definitely the only T at that part of the grounds.
One thing I noticed this year is there were a few more T's this year, due to the Chev/Ford thing no doubt.
Last year I noticed only two T's and they had come from Iowa!
I met Steve last year rummaging around some T parts....... :-)

Craig, No, I didn't see your T. Actually, I didn't spend a lot of time going around the car show areas.

We didn't go to Iola last year, the first time we missed since about 1974. Last year we were already on the way to Rutland, Vermont for the MTFCI National Tour there, and the dates just conflicted.

Some day....

Keith

Just got home. I'll post some pictures later. The weather was perfect, in the mid eighties. I go up there to the frozen tundra for the meet, to visit family, and for a little break from the heat (which this year, so far, hasn't been bad). When the folks in Wisconsin gripe about 85 being hot, I just smile.

OK, here we go. Pictures as promised. First, some of the goods.


A very unusual bicycle wheel.


Anybody recognize this?


Axle housing cap puller.


Aren't you sorry you missed these fantastic bargains?

Here are some of the cars.


This 1915 Chebby 490 is the first one I've ever seen in person. Gerald Perschbacher did a little talk about it, and mentioned that 18,000 were made. He didn't explain why so few are left.


A row of Fords.






Keith's 1914.




I cut down a dead tree at my cousin's place, and she and the kids broke it up.


Yesterday morning before I started home we went to what was left of the car show. Elizabeth liked the Bronco.

Nice looking Pierce Model 81 coupe. Very few had the bar mounted headlamps. I am guessing late 1928 / early 29.

The '23 Roadster, 3rd picture up from the bottom, was Chet Krause's car. It was sold to someone in Iola when he had his big auction a few years ago. It's an original, unrestored car.

Craig, is that your '19 Touring in the 5th picture up from the bottom?

Steve - Thanks for taking and posting the pictures.

Keith

Keith......that one is '23 at the earliest.
My '19 is recognizable at 300 yards because of the mirrors I have on the windshield posts.

Nice photos, as usual, Steve! I think that unique bicycle tire was for the ice races ......
My wife would LOVE it, if our top irons were proper like the ones on the runabout just above the tree limbs! She whopped her head, big time, getting in one day .. as ours are apparently 'way wrong' from a cut down touring, or something ...
