Here is the beautiful early Fordson tractor at the show in Richmond. GREAT time with GREAT people. I want to thank the staff of the Museum for their hard work to make the event a success!
I had a great pulled pork sandwich across the street at the Firehouse.
They were in deep conversation at this car!
A few more of the pics I took yesterday:
Here are a few more.
By 2pm, the rain had taken it's toll.
Of course Joe Bell was still putting on a demo of how to pour Babbitt.
I watched Joe as he worked on this block, the workmanship was superb. We are very greatfull to have had him demonstrate this at the Homecoming. There was always a crowd watching and he was always explaining what he was doing. It was very obvious that this is a labor of love for him and we are very lucky to have him available to keep our old cars going. Several of our club members have "Joe Bell" engines in them and I know when the time comes I will too! Thanks Joe.
Bruce thanks for posting the pictures..... I enjoyed the documents you brought and shared of your Grandfather... and the good conversation...Bob
