Looks like wonderful stuff and a great turnout.

I told Mike he made me late. After seeing him using an infrared thermometer in one of the videos, I had to stop in Wichita and get one on my way up to Hutch.

How interesting that an early part of the curriculum at the College is working with Model T drive trains. What a great way to learn about the complicated systems of automobiles, by learning about the simplest ones first.

And it looks as if it's rubbing off on the students, since three of them are now restoring their own T's. :-)

At least 7 states, John Steele was there from Montana. I should have been.

8 - Montana, Minnesota, Colorado, Nebraska. Oklahoma. Missouri, Arkansas, and Kansas. Now If we knew the states the students from McPherson Collage were from I'd bet the number would go up a few more. Unofficial numbers close to 100 in attendance. This make's it the third highest attendance behind the Upholstery and then the Crankshaft/Overhead clinic from a few years ago. Jerry

And not a single pic of Steve, how ever that pic with the brown overalls looks suspicious.

I believe all of the students signed in, so they should be "official". They include: Texas, Ohio, Georgia, Illinois, California, North Carolina, and Louisiana.

Good eye, George. I think that's me. The News photog took lots of pictures of me looking at the cars, but Herb Zook's speedster made it into the paper without me. :-)

What a great event. Well done to the organisers for getting all those clever T guys to share their knowledge and experience for the betterment of the bobby. Wish I could have been there. What are the details of that red speedster? The lines of the body and that dash loo beautiful.

Warwick, hopefully Chris Paulson will chime in as it's one of McPherson College's projects. Here are a couple of photo's I took and at the end of Mikes presentation this web site was shown to us as having all the videos shown listed. Please take a look.
