Here's a video I shot of Sunday morning. The cars were starting to roll in. I did it early to avoid the human traffic that comes when the public comes flowing in. Watch if interested, I didn't get much in the way of pictures or video...just too busy with it all.

Rob, Thanks for the heads up. I watched that part and it might be us but I'm not sure.

Our '14 has white license plates with black numbers and a big black "W" for Wisconsin.

Best wishes,

Keith

Thanks Don :-)
Bud - check at 21:30 in the video - the Rolls is started and the owner plays the organ. Sounds better than I would have expected from a car horn :-)

Roger,I listened several times but while i hear it start i hear no starter?? I know nothing of the RR but i was shocked to see gas lites in 1913?? That's our 14 touring with the white tires just before the 14 Chevy!! When i first saw the lines on the RR,i thought it was a bank of grease fittings!! Dumb but well intended-Bud.PS,The lady in the pink dress and hat walking away was my wife. Again Thank's Don!!!!! Bud.

Thank you Don B! A great video of an incredible event. So many incredible cars all together, to see, hear, and experience.

Well holy crap, thanks for the complements guys. I thought it was a bit boring. For some reason I just wasn't in to doing video this year but thought I'd put something together..didn't even get the GoPro's out.

The 1913 Rolls Royce is owned by the Barretts from Elmira NY. The family drove it to the OCF and back. They had a flat tire on the way home but quickly swapped it out and was on their way. Mr Barrett was showing a friend of his how it started. He cranked it with what I believe was a electric starter. He then shut it down and it appeared to free start several times after that. Now I wasn't close enough to hear the conversation and don't go by this because I never got a chance to talk to him about it. Tom Miller can answer that with more accuracy and detail. The Barrett's were his house guests and they are close friends.

The maroon Rolls Royce took first place I heard. And Jim Matoys 1925 Model T Touring took third place. I have not heard who took second yet. They should post it on the website soon.

What a show... How lucky we are that Greenfield Village puts this together for all to enjoy. The amount of work that they put in to organizing and ensuring that the cars are period correct is incredible. I can't thank them enough.

Don...I finally got the time to watch this video in full! Wow, what a great job! Cecil B. DeMills got nothing on you!! Even saw my wife and our neighbor's wife just before 6:00 walking right in front of your view...is that a photo-bomb?? LOL Loved the "calliope" playing on the Rolls.

Tim, I really wish we could have had some sit down time. I think next year all the forum members should wear hot pink top hats...or flamingo pink neck wraps...or lime green laced derby's. That way I could be sure to get them in the video! Hah!!!

Darel, that was Rob Heyen's K. I bet he put 100 miles on it that weekend!

Don, I agree. I'd love to get to know everyone better, maybe pick a few brains, and just shoot the breeze if nothing else!

I found it interesting that Saturday had the ropes up, but on Sunday the ropes had all disappeared! Can't help but wonder if Sunday was a trial run to see how it goes without them?

Thoughts?

Willis

We still had the ropes on Sunday, in the judging area. Sometimes we just went out the "opening", sometimes people held up the ropes for us to drive out.

Copyright infringement I think Don. Breanne is way nicer looking than you though. It sure looks like last years video that you filmed.. Now get back to that sugar beet harvest, as Michigan Sugar Co. says, "What could be sweeter than this"...JD

Thanks for the OCF video Don. Very, very nicely done! I would really like to contact the owner of that red Hupmobile Model 20. Looked like a '10 or '11 model. Anybody know him? One of these days I need to go to that. Isn't it just 35 acres and did anybody feel crowded?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Don Booth@ Bay City, Mi on Thursday, September 24, 2015 - 08:37 pm:

Thanks George, I believe the entire grounds is around 100 acres. There are many back roads to drive on and it is actually a country farm setting nestled in there. The show itself is busy but I have never felt crowded or squeezed unless standing in line around lunch time. They are masters at organizing they whole thing and driving your car around the grounds is really easy..slow at times but everybody is enjoying the event.

Roger,I guess i really do not know except maybe it's the same as posting the same links over and over?? I know it bothers willis jenkins who i do not think i have ever met?? The first link lets you also see other past years and i'm sure there are people who have never seen or attended?? I would think if there is a problem our moderater would chime in??

You are too funny Bud, and I'm glad you enjoy the video. I admit I have to watch it about once a week just to rejuvenate my current restore jobs. Wishing you and all the forum members, the Old Car Festival workers and all other Model T enthusiasts a warm and wonderful Christmas !

I just watched this again. I've never been to the OCF, so I have to go. Next one, I hope. Lots of swell cars, and I'd like to get a look at the train that's heard but not seen in the video.

Steve: If you're a train fan, you have to see their restored 1890's Baldwin. It is one of the finest and most rare in the US. I dont think they run it though, and am curious whether somebody here knows why not.
Regards,
Scott

Scott,Is that the locomotive that you can go down the stairs and walk under? The working roundhouse is open for a at your own pace walk through and if your there at the right time they might use you to power the turntable!! I have seen the big steam crane ran once but i'm not sure how often they do it?? I have in the past seen people get a cab ride but i do not know the who or how of that.A pair of Roundhouse Bib's might help as being dressed for it? Bud in Wheeler,Mi.
