Did any one see Henry's first engine at Richmond's museum saturday? There was a 14 year old boy name Tim that had made it and it ran, he was pretty proud of it at the show. I can see some really nice cars coming from this young man in the future. This is what the hobby is about, the young blood following in our footsteps. I wish I had taken a picture to post! Joe
I was very pleased and proud to have a group of teens at our Homecoming.
Tim Lucius brought his Henry Ford Kitchen Sink Engine to our homecoming yesterday at the museum. I was very proud of what he accomplished. Tim just turned 15. He did 90 percent of the work with guidance from his talented Dad, Bill, and support of Mom, Deanna.
Here is a photo of Tim tending the engine during one of its runs of the day.
Sarah Peaslee, worked with her Dad Ken on her beautiful black speedster. She shared a great photo/essay storyboard presentation.
Ted Klepinger brought their speedster. Ted was featured in the last issue of the Vintage Ford. He attended with Dad, Mom and little brother Nash.
Jessica Kinne shared her Model T experiences which began when she was just weeks old. She will most likely have a T in her future.
It is vitally important that we nurture these exceptional youth.
We need more of them!
It was a true pleasure to have them with us this past weekend!
Flipped and enlarged.
I have heard there are plans that exist for this out there on the net. Anyone know of any? Would be a fun winter project.
Here's a link that will give you the address.
Send me a PM and I will send you his contact info. I just recently bought a set of these plans myself.
Looks like Brent and I were typing at the same time.
