This is long but it shows the drive to the village from the parking area. Taken in the early morning before its open to the public. Not all the cars are set up yet.
Don - Nice video! I saw Rob Heyen & Tim with their Model K's at 16:14 to 17:30, and Rob driving along at 29:13 to 29:23.
At 28:22 to 29:08 is David Liepelt starting and driving his Dad's '12 Overland.
I also saw Sarah Zimmer driving her colorful Speedster in there somewhere.
Thanks for taking and posting this, Don.
Don,I never saw you there but at the start we were proably parked less than 100' from each other in the parking lot! Bud.PS,Nice video and thank's for making it!
Bud, I looked for you also and really wanted to spend some talking time. The place was a bit overwhelming to me and seemed every time I left the car someone from GV showed up looking for me.
Maybe we can get together at a local car show before the summer is gone. No doubt you were socially active also...
Nice video, definitely need to make this show when my car is running.
Don: A terrific video. The were a ton on great cars and it is great to see how many have been put back on the road in stead of the scrapers yard. To me, I love to see the "OLD CARS" more then the ultra modern flame loaded cars with the Big Block noisy monsters. There is a place for all but in antiques keep them as they were in the YOM! No exceptions Just MY HUMBLE OPINION, there I said it all

Nice video! I am wondering what camera and setup you used. Perhaps you could post a picture of how you mounted it?
Thanks Willis, the cam is a GoPro Hero HD. The camera has a suction cup type mount along with many other types of mounts to use. I absolutely love these cameras. I have two just because. They have a incredible image stabilization system that simply amazes. You can check them out at www.gopro.com .
I hesitate to say this, but I cannot see the video. I get a message from Google "Incorrect certificate for host". Been getting that a lot lately for a lot of things. Some videos and links work fine. Others? I guess I need to bother my IT son again.
Don,I thought we might see you in Hemlock yesterday or Midland today but?? Bud.
Ken, I was in Midland yesterday and ended up buying a powered wheelchair for a friend of mine that is a quadriplegic. I gave it to him this morning and ended up spending half the day there.
I have to say that it was very hard to think about the car show after seeing this guy in his first powered wheelchair...very good for the soul.
Wayne, youtube uses flash to display its content. Adobe has had some updated lately. Go to Adobe.com and update the flash player and adobe Air also and see if that fixes the problem.
This is Steve, I've known him most of my life. He had a accident that broke his neck in 12 places. This guy has never complained for a second as long as I've known him. I came upon a really good deal for a powered chair and decided it was worth it to me to see him able to get around easier...the old adage, "Old Friends Are Worth Keeping" came to mind. Best money I ever spent. Period.
I applaud you for helping your friend out. Best story I've seen on the forum (or anywhere else for that matter) lately.
Fantastic video - well done. I especially appreciate the fact that you didn't overdub music into it. Old cars make the sweetest music!!!!
Great video. I know it was early Sunday morning before many cars are out driving. I saw my car at about 10:27 still covered up. The real treat is at about 14:10. There is a 1922 Town Car. Where was this car? It should have been across the street from me but, I never saw it in person. It is exactly what I was hoping to see at the OCF.What a nice car.
Don,Good on ya!! Bud.
Thank you all, just to put things in perspective...while some of us are excited to get out and show off our cars or work on them. This guy was thrilled at the thought he would no longer have to struggle with a bag of garbage. Seems he had to load it into his truck and drive it to the end of his driveway (about 200ft),drop it off and drive back. The same for getting his mail. Everyone needs a Steve in their life to give them a slap of reality. About 5 years ago I built a computer for him and dropped it off. He had never had one and was intimidated by the whole concept of trying to type with fingers that have no movement. It took him a while to get use to typing using the one finger method. He found it was the perfect pastime for a guy with such restrictions. That computer was old and very slow but it was "his" speed. Last year I built him a much faster and more powerful system and dropped it off. He was so thrilled at the speed that all I heard for a month was how amazing this new computer was. This spring he came over for a visit and asked if I would get something out of his truck for him. I did so, it was a gift he had hand made for me and the T. It was a scaled down version of a 1800's tool box. I was practically in tears. The amount of work he had put into this and the fine attention to detail was incredible. He even went so far as to purchase nickel plated hardware to match the ole Lizzy. Now, imagine the effort it takes to build a solid oak box and imagine building it with hands that have about 5% usage. Words cannot describe how honored I was and will always be.
The truth is this had to be a very painful project for him. How do you show the proper amount of appreciation for his efforts? how???
Don - Steve is fortunate to have a wonderful friend like you. Keep up the good work...
A beautiful tool box, and a beautiful story.
How do you show appreciation for such a gift? Cherish it for the rest of your life. As I know you will.
Thank you for sharing this with us.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
