Today I was with my brother in law Jim. We went into the local Harbor Freight. He headed down the side isle to look for something in the back. I was just looking around and noticed a man looking at the power tools. What caught my eye was his T-shirt.
It said Philmont Boy Scout Camp on it. That is a good way to start a conversation. So I asked him about the camp. I also said I remembered a story that I read here on the forum.
He said he had been to the camp five times so far and thought it was a wonderful place.
I asked him if he had ever seen an early Ford there. He said he could not remember seeing one but it is a big place.
So tonight I search the internet and found this:
Wow what a connection!
Can anyone tell me more about the Pichney plant in Dearborn where this car was originally assembled?
Hey, Tom, I think it's a fairly good and readworthy article even if he got the name of the Piquette Avenue plant wrong..
I agree the article was good read Roger. But it appears he got both the plant and the city wrong. I am not used to seeing wrong information on the internet.
Ford Mo Co went right from Mack Ave to Piquette. All the N models were build at Piquette from what I could dig up.
I cannot find any mention of "Pichney" anywhere else other than that article...
Proud to say that is one of my bodies on the sawhorse. Chuck was a great guy to deal with and did the scouts very well, indeed.
