Let a few kids sit in them.
My friend Joe's cars, 24 Packard and 1908 REO.
'22 Dodge Screenside.
Optional wiring design.
Treasures I found.
Where did this happen?
My daughter caught me trying out my new punch at my booth.
I'm recuperating from the dust in the facility we hold the Swap Next in. It's next to the zoo and I am allergic to animal hair. I'll unload the pickup tomorrow.
It's always great to see the old friends you only see once a year. We have a small Swap Meet with very little old stuff but the car show had over 300 cars and it's good to get the car folks all together.
Idaho Falls Tautfhaus Park. Always on Father's Day weekend.
I see the beginnings of some really nice paintings...
Thanks for sharing.
: ^ )
Whats the story on the early T coupe. Was it for sale, what year and if it was for sale, how much. Did it sell?
He said it was his.
Keith T. There really was a lot there that would be good inspiration for paintings.

The Touring in the first photo was for sale but they wanted too much and it had a lot of problems (besides the salesman).
It was a great weekend and I sold a few calendars and traded some for some parts. I don't make it to too many big meets but the little ones have a charm all their own.
Father's Day is hard for me to get time, between work and seeing my father, but the small shows are usually the best, I will have to remember this one as sometimes I can get Saturday off, or at least a few hours. This Saturday was our anniversary, so we drove to Redfish lake for a few hours, it is where we had our honeymoon 34 years ago.
Congratulations on 34 years, Gustaf. The Swap Meet they used to have in Jerome was always my favorite. I miss it. I bet I bumped into you a few time over there but didn't know you.
Had lunch at the cafe in Jerome a couple weeks ago - nice folks there !
My son and his family are moving to Idaho Falls very soon. When I come to visit I'm going to bring a Model T and join you folks for some fun.
That Yellow Speedster is certainly nice.
I do not think I ever made it to the Jerome swap meet, about the only thing I have done with old cars is work on the WWII jeeps that I drive every day. Did you ever take the Yellowstone bus to Three Forks for the fly in? I used to be a regular there until it got overrun with the wealthy post Oshkosh crowd. I liked the beer truck, it had the taps low enough that if you were passed out by the runway, you could still reach them to fill your cup.
We have enjoyed driving the speedster for 40 years now. It's on it's 5th set of tires. Sadly it sits in the garage too much with 6 other cars to drive and some with tops and heaters.
I didn't know about the Three Forks fly in.
Bill, let us know when you are coming. Maybe we can pry some of the other T folks out.
Jerome had it's meet in a great little park. Most of the wonderful folks who showed up there are gone now but those were the best weekends of my life.
There were some guys in their teen's and twenties at our meet showing interest in the old stuff. One of them had $3000 in his pocket and wanted my Rusty coupe. He would have gone to 4 grand but I told him if I sold it I'd just have to build another one and it was easier to just keep this one. Very encouraging though.
This '32 Olds was there for 29k. Don't know if it sold or where it was from.
Richard tell us about the engine in the yellow speedster. YFAF - Yellow Fords are Faster!
Did you have your yellow speedster on the 1990 Glidden Tour in Colorado? I was drooling over it somewhere and I'm trying to remember where. It's great to see it again.
In early September I'll be driving through Idaho on my way to and from the Island Navigator Tour on Whidbey Island. If it can be arranged, is there any chance I could stop in to see you and get a shop tour?
You have a great memory Charlie. I would love to meet you. Let me know when you will be by. I'd like to hear about your REO.
Seth, I found a Roof 8-valve in 1978 for it. Sadly it is a low compression version for a truck. I don't drive fast anymore and it is nice on hills. One exhaust valve sticks when it gets hot. I made a little tool to free it up and if I run it a little rich it does better. A stock or low head would be more convenient but not as fun to look at.
Richard, I'm looking forward to stopping by and meeting you. If my memory serves me right, you had some rear seating on your speedster on the 1990 Glidden and some young ones riding with you. The whole family seemed to have a great time with the speedster then.
I'll keep in touch and let you know when I hope to be able to visit, probably on the way home, sometime around the end of the second week in September. We can talk about the REO. I've registered my 1915 White Model 45 for the tour. I remember seeing a picture of the White you have some time ago on this Forum. I'd really like to see that too.
Hi Richard, Thanks for posting the 32'Olds. My Dad owns 2 31' Olds, they were a well built car in its day But due to the depression they never sold many, making them extremely rare today. both of our cars have those unique spun cast hubcaps finding a complete set for both cars has been a ongoing nightmare for the past 30 years.
It was sure a great car Mike. If I had the money I would have bought it.
