In another current thread, Herb Iffrig commented about a photo of the Ford "race cars" crossing the Missouri River.....
Let's see if I can remember this story correctly.... In 2009 some 50 "plus" T's embarked on the "Coast to coast" anniversary run and when we got to that same town on the Missouri River, we all had to take a temporary ferry in about the same spot (we were told) as the 1909'ers, because the nearby bridge was out of order due to being hit by a barge. (I think the fed provided the ferry service?) Anyway, here is a picture of a/the daughter of the man who ran the ferry back in 1909 and took the race cars across the river at that time! (Somewhere I even think I have her name written down.....) Very cool history, huh?
Joe: Yes, for sure great history. We participated in that run and visited with the gal in your picture. She was very gracious and we had a wonderful conversation. She also allowed us to have our picture taken with her.
I believe the town where you caught the ferry is Glasgow, MO. They now have a new bridge over the Missouri River.
Hi Berry. Yes, one of the things I like best about the Model T hobby is the history. Of course, there are those here who know a whole lot more than I do, but it's all good. By the way, I can still picture that "emergency" solder job on your radiator!!!!!!
Joe, you do have a good memory. The 'emergency' repair was not pretty, but it worked and at the time that was my primary concern.
