I want to thank the Boise folks for getting us into the Yanke Museum. It was opened especially for those of us attending the MTFCA Annual Meeting.







Not a Model K but a Seagraves.

Very interesting. Thanks for posting. Are they normally open for visitors or just open for MTFCA private tour?

I had never heard of this Museum. It looks like they are preparing to keep it open on a regular basis. At present it is only open for special groups as far as I know.

Some non-T's:

Schebler updraft carb.
4 sparkplugs per cylinder, 2 on mag, 2 on distributor.
79.3HP IIRC, and more torque than a young man should be allowed to play with.

You can spend a whole day in the museum. There are so many cars, motorcycles, tractors etc. that it's hard to believe. I have lived in Boise all my life and didn't know about it until our antique car club at the Shrine, arranged a tour two years ago. There is even a WWII landing craft in the parking lot. At that time you had to call and make an appointment to get in.

Seems like quite a few of those cars were in the Towe Museum in Deer Lodge before the IRS sale - can't remember the year but I was there along with Bob Bergstadt (sp) Sr.

There were several Montana Historical plates on vehicles. An auction would explain them coming to Idaho.

At Dinner tonight. L to R: Jennifer Hollandbeck (VF Editor) Rich Eagle (ne'er-do-well) Ed Archer (Hall of Fame Racer) and Keith Gumbinger (MTFCA Director).

It was a place to meet some nice people.

Hi Rich, It was really good to meet and visit with you and Ed tonight. The whole day today was great, from our all day MTFCA Directors meeting to the nice reception tonight.

Tomorrow we're visiting more museums and having our Annual Membership meeting in the Evening & it promises to be another great day.

Lest I forget, the weather is great...lots of sunshine and temps in the 60's.

Keith

Rich, looks like you've got some more models for future paintings! Thanks for sharing!
For some reason I just flashed on Monty getting his fortune told, "I see a foreign model in your future!" As he happily leaves the joint, there's a guy on the front porch, hands him a box, and says, "It's a Ferrari, snap-together!"

I did wear a hat today. A busy day with great weather and wonderful folks. No pictures but a fantastic week end.
Thanks MTFCA

A little more on the Yanke Museum. Carl Yanke developed potato machinery starting in the 40's. J. R. Simplot became very successful growing and marketing potatoes. In later years the two of them and a 3rd fellow spent some of their surplus dollars at auctions in Montana and elsewhere. Carl's son Ron was building a museum to put the Yanke treasures in when he passed several years ago. There is talk of combining the collections of all three of these people. It would be a great one if it can come together. There is a vast collection of farm equipment as well.

Mike Robison mentioned Ed Towe's MT500 car. His picture has Circle on the splash apron rather than Deer Lodge. Circle is where Ed lived previous to moving his Ford collection from Helena's Capitol housing to the penitentiary in Deer Lodge.

These are MT500 pictures I took at the Hebgen Lake Narrows in 1963. The first one is Ed Towe's car I believe. Nicer than the later car but probably not as fast. The cars were a little different in those early Race days.

Great pictures Richard. Do you perhaps have more? May I post these to the Montana 500 site?

Number 21 is indeed Ed Towe. Number 14 is Bill Walters. Number 8 is Ken Cook. Walters and Cook were both from Bozeman.

I don't believe I've seen Ed Archer wearing modern clothes before.

Here are the rest that I took. Not that great. Yes, I would be happy if you can use them Tom. I can send you the larger scans if you like.

Maybe Rob Heyen can tell us why that crank handle on the N is hanging down instead of being up at attention.

Don, the side door was open so I got these photos. 6374 as I read it. The Placard said 1908 I believe.

John, here is the back of the paddy wagon. Also the wheel on a military '17 touring, a touring with outside door handles and an unusual fender brace.
