Thank you, Jan & Janice VandeBogart and the White Mountain Regional Chapter Model A Club of America members for allowing me to tag along.
I met the club at the Hopkinton High School Parking Lot, we left there at 9:30 a.m. sharp. Ben Cochran, was leading the group of (I believe 8 As and my T) traveling to Warner NH on Route 103, from there up North Road – a very nice Model A & T scenic route - to North Sutton and Musterfield Farm. I also wanted to Thank Ben, for the great job he did in selecting the route and managing such a large group of antique cars. I was concerned that in my 1917 Model T, I would have trouble keeping up with the Model As, but Ben did a wonderful job with our road speed and Sambuca had no problem keeping up. We arrived at Musterfield Farm around 10:30 am. The weather was perfect, as you can see by these photos, everyone was enjoying themselves for the rest of the day. I strongly recommend that everyone who has a chance to visit the farm to do so.
Hunter standing guard
Warren, you did not tell them about the ice cream
Dave, the ice cream was great. I eat mine (I had coffee) before I eat lunch, Hunter (his was plain old vanilla), was being good and waited until after he had his lunch (we shared an onion, green pepper and sausage sub, just like the ones you get at all the fairs, only I eat all the onions and peppers).
Have you ever been to Musterfield Farm Day? Pat, Hunter and I also went to their Ice Day, last January 29th and plan on going to the Harvest Day event, in October.
Dave Dufault, I'm thinking about getting the copper one for my wife!!!! I like it the best, I'll bet this will make her very happy. She will not have to go to the brook to do the laundry any more.
Look at all those As lined up in a row
Warren, do you have a perverse desire to be single again?
I suspect that if you present Pat with "the copper one", you may be !!
Yes, I've been...great time - all the time.
Amazing, the insulating powers of sawdust - to be able to keep the ice from January (February) until August, and sometimes later.
Happy to hear Sambuca had no problem keeping up.....you N.H. Folks sure know how to have fun!
Great photos Warren and a cool place. We'd been there before with the new defunct New Hampshire Volkswagen Club. Thanks for posting and I agree with Dave D, re: the washing machine
That should have been "now defunct"
Great day, looks like a great show and wonderful pics!
The pic that really got me was that Farmall Regular in it's workin' clothes. Cripes, the brake/steer cables are still hooked up and ready.
Thank you for showing us!
Very happy, that I managed to bring some smiles to all your faces!!!!
Dave & Gary, it sure would be an improvement on all these new fang-dangled washing machines, last porcelain one we had when it stopped working, the service people said "it can't be repaired, through it away and get a new one".
Jeff, if you want happy, just look at this photo. It's how I feel every time I go for a drive in one of my Ts!!!!
ps: I could have bought one of these
Of all the antique car that I have bought and sold, I miss my Ford 8N the most
Duey, YES, that Farmall Regular was in it's workin' clothes. You could tell that it was still working on the farm every day.
Are you going on the Maine Tour next week ?
Jim, unfortunately I am not going to the Mainely T Tour this yer.
