Just curious; Are folks planning to do the part-day tour from the Museum in Richmond this Thursday? If the weather looks okay, I'm planning to come out from Dayton on Thursday, and hope I can meet-up with others looking to do the tour.
I am planning to do the tour on Thursday and Friday. Will be in Richmond Wednesday, early evening. Meeting others around noonish at the museum on Thursday. Look us up if you would like, I'll have my 26 Tudor.
My better half and I will be in Richmond Wednesday and we will do the Thursday and Friday tour. The rest of the St. Louis group will be there late Friday for the swap meet and our two quick assembly shows on Saturday.
When looking for Dan, you might see a fat, bald guy from KY somewhere close to him, if he lets me hang out near him. And a tall, slender guy with a mustache from WV not far away.
We have 3 cars and 6 folks coming up from the Louisville and Southern IN area. Will get to the museum about noon on Thursday.
There'll be three of us with our cars coming in around noon-ish Thursday and plan to do the half day tour also. Might be a bit after noon, hard to say. But planning on it.
I will be there Thursday about 10ish. Beat up '27 pick up with a white top.
there will be two of us arriving on Wednesday night at the days inn in Richmond, and plan on touring both days. the weather looks great for all three days! see you there.
The latest weather report for Saturday shows 50% chance for rain and a high temp. of 77.
The latest for Thursday says 40% chance of rain in the morning, with 40% chance scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon.
Keith, u goin'? I sure want to but my recent knee replacement and Vonnie's back won't let us. Maybe next year.
Regards to you and Carol
Hi Hal - Yes, I think I'll make it....still working on the arrangements.
Why don't you just fly out in your Connie or Ford Tri-Motor and join us? I understand there's an airport nearby. I know you can do it....
Best wishes to you and Vonnie
For those who don't know, Hal is a retired Air Force Pilot and flew Constellations and lots of other planes also, from about 1952 to 1972 or so.
Wish I could be there also! Best of travels to all of you.
And shameful plug -- if anyone can take and send me some photos of body numbers, body letters, casting date, and dash number -- as any of those are available. And if the owner is ok with it, either the engine serial number (I don't need the last 3 digits) or the date it is listed on Bruce's serial number listing. Where to look? Please see the posting Forum posting “Home for the Holidays” at: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/29/40322.html
Again safe travels to all of you!

I have to work again this year . Patty and talked about it today so we hope to make it next year.
Keith. The dates are right on! And the "Connie" was a great all weather aircraft. I also had fun in a bunch of prop planes and the KC-135. I had my Runabout stored in a building on my buddies farm in Wisconsin while I was in the AF..
Hal - I know you can still fly with the best of them!
Any pictures or reports from the tour? Wish I could be there but work always gets in the way.
No pictures, but I'll give a quick report. the weather has been fantastic, and we've had some great tours yesterday and today. I didn't bring my T but have hitched rides with others. Today's roads began on ho-hum section line roads, so I thought it would be a boring tour. But we got into some wonderful hilly and curvy back roads for most of the day! The roads were so great, I thought I was back in Arkansas!
I also met Dave, Steven, and Tim who posted above, as well as several other avid Model T'ers. We're all looking forward to the swap meet tomorrow! Something tells me the Museum's parking lot will be swamped (with people, not rain).
