Jay and Barbara Klehfoth are now enjoying a well deserved retirement. Not much as been said about their service to the club. Since their retirement the club has had some rough times that many members do not know about. But we have survived. Jay and Barbara run a well greased organization and accomplished many good things for the club including editing the Vintage Ford magazine, publishing Model T service manuals and organizing hundreds of club activities. All run with expertise and efficiency. We cannot thank them enough. Every member should give them their thanks. I hope they will continue to keep in touch and I look forward to seeing them again on some club activity.
Amen to that!
Well said Glen.
Thanks Jay and Barbara for your years of service. Wishing you a long and happy retirement! Kim Dobbins
Jay and Barbara, Thanks for all the hard work and time you have spent with your years serving MTFCA!
Thank you for all your service.
Yes, thank you
Yes indeed, Jay and Barbara were the backbone of the club for a good long while. I am grateful for all that they have done and hope to see Jay puttering along in his town car some time soon!
Thank you !
Thank you all for caring. Glen
Special K and Mr. Jay
Nuff' said .......
I am as guilty of it as anyone. We never say "Thank You!" often enough.
Sometimes I don't know where to begin. But for right now? Thank you Jay and Barbara! And keep enjoying what you continue to do. Whatever it is.
Thank you for all you have done, enjoy retirement.
Thank you for your service you two and now enjoy yourselves!
I sure miss Jay's "Life In the Slow Lane" articles. I always looked forward to them, they were always a "HOOT"! Thanks Jay! Dave
Thank you for the great work and effort. Enjoy your well deserved retirement....
Many thanks for all your work. May your retirement be long, healthful, and surrounded by friends!
Pan straightening. It's a no brainer....mandatory check engine rebuild check list item. Save your self a bunch of headaches later and have it done.
Oops wrong thread
Is this the same Jay that always posted the neat photos?
Many thanks for so much dedication and hard work
Thank Jay and Barbara.
As the late Country singer, George Jones, sang, "Who's Going To Fill Their Shoes"?
Hope you can now sit and smell the roses, or the T engines, in your retirement. thank you for your time and compassion Jay and Barb.
Rion S, No. Different Jay. Jay K had been writing "Life in the Slow Lane" for some years before taking over as editor of the Vintage Ford. IF I remember the time-line correctly, he and his better half Barbara later became the official administrators for the MTFCA.
Jay In Northern Califunny is another Jay, albeit just as wonderful and good a person as Jay K. And thank you again Jay for all the excellent photos you post!
Around my house, it sometimes gets confusing. I usually have to make myself clear when I talk about "Jay". One of my long-time good friends is also "Jay" (has been for more than 40 years around my house. So, for quite some time, any time "Jay" comes up in conversation? I have to make it clear who I mean. Dan is just about as bad around my house. Three of my longest time closest friends are mostly known as "Dan". Around my house, we often need to clarify who we are talking about.
Now you know why I often stick last initials after first names!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Jay and Barb, Thank you for all you have done for the club. We feel without your support and dedication there would not have been a Centennial Celebration. It was an unforgettable time in many peoples lives. The same for all the work you have put into the museum. It surely would not be what it is today without your involvement. Thank you! Dan and Ellen
Enjoy yourselves during your retirement.
Yep, Jay and Barbara are tops in my book too. I hugely appreciate all the "over and above" initiatives they launched on our behalf..
Hope Jay is not upset with the club about the unwarranted complaints about his article that mentioned Mike Pence. Mr Pence is a supporter of our club and no one should complain about that. He said nothing about politics, so why complain?
Glenn and all.
Thanks for the kind words. Barbara and I have enjoyed our nearly 30 years with the MTFCA. The club is second to none. The Model T brought us all together, but it has been the people who make the club so special.
Regarding my piece in the VF about Mike Pence—I regret that I ever published this. It was not an endorsement, but rather to point out (maybe, brag) that we had some very well-known people at the Model T Centennial. Mike Pence is someone who helped us with the Centennial; was my Congressman; he was my Governor, and now he is now my Vice President—and maybe someday, my (and your) President. This was intended to be a “news” item—not a political endorsement.
Now, let me say—thanks to all of you who are in the hobby to enjoy and share the history and fun: God bless and keep doing what you are doing.
I related this before but for me it bears repeating here:
Most folks have a " putt putt moment " that brought them into the hobby and the family of the Model T.
It usually involves family or a car.
For me - my putt putt moment is when I met Jay early one cold morning to drop off a Model T Center Door at the MTFCA Museum.
That was a few years back & since then I have been privileged to meet other members of the Model T Family all across the lower 48 states.
Thank You Barbara and Jay .....
Jay, Any one with a little since knows that your comments were well intended and had no political agenda or endorsement. There will always be voices of malcontent, they have no regard for others opinions or rights and never know when to shut up.
Glenn: Agree with you 100 per cent ! This world has gotten too complicated for a simple act of a friendly brag, have to be politically correct and not step on any toes for fear of upsetting some snotnose. JMHO .....unfortunately it's been well played out here on this Forum a few times
