My son Cale did his report on Henry Ford.
That's really neat. Cale is lucky to have a dad as cool as you Derek!
That little Henry Ford in the back seat look very nice. It's great to see the children getting a chance to see your car. I'm glad the teachers let the students go outside and look at it.
Derek, I wish I could have been there. Gramma standing in the back of the picture said Cale's project got all the attention. Lucky Cale.
The car was a hit with everyone, and Cale was very proud of it.
Well done. Great way to pass on the story of Henry Ford and the Model T. Also a great way to stimulate interest in our hobby for future generations.
Very cool I am sure the kids loved it. Tim
Once of our club members has his granddaughter TOTALLY immersed in restoring her own Model T. She is doing everything that does not require "man hand strength".
Getting kids involved with a hands-on education is ever so much more effective than getting them to read it from a dry textbook, because that's just data without experience. It's so much more exciting, fun and memorable to touch the artifacts and learn how to use and maintain them.
The biggest deficit the antique car "hobby" is a lack of youth involvement (It used to be ladies and minorities, but that involvement is developing). But mostly, what we need is young people.
Reading Cale's composition about Ford on the Facebook post about this I'd say it was exceptional work for a second grader. Very nice work.
I have to say, the kid is a ringer for the young Henry Ford.
The poisoning of young minds with thoughts of evil old stuff .... it just ain't right !
You just wait till some liberal Prius puke in the media gets ahold of this story of child
abuse and lifelong mental scarring !
