Yesterday myself and friend of mine, Russ Herner, piled in my truck/trailer rig and headed to the T museum in Richmond, to pick up what is surely a pretty rare, and very neat '23 Towncar. Built in England, RH drive, looks all original. I only have a few pics, dummy me caught up in all the days excitement of getting the car, seeing some old friends again..Keith Gumbinger, Jerry & Kim Kramer, Freighter Jim, Jay & Barb Klehfoth, just to name a few. For the day, I was "Freighter Tim"..ha ha. There were a lot, if not all, board members there across the street in the "annex" having lunch when we arrived, and Jerry graciously insisted we come over and join them. This is truly a great bunch of people. They were busy on a work session, I think both in the annex area that is continually growing, and prepping for today's big dedication of the Library. Which incidentally, is absolutely fantastic. Russ and I spent plenty of time afterward with a nice tour of the work in progress from Jerry, followed by plenty of Museum time. I think it was Russ's first time there other than a short stay last week to look at the car before purchasing. It was great. Incidentally, this Towncar was Jay & Barb's. It's gone to a good, loving home for sure. Here's a few pics. Wish I'd have gotten the whole table load of board members and wives there "lunching down" but I hate doing that. And they scattered quickly after to get back to things at hand.

Best full view I have, from a distance so I cropped it. These magnificent people had this car loaded so fast I couldn't keep up! :-)


And away they go! Samantha rolled effortlessly.


And she's in!!

L-R: Keith Gumbinger, next to him some strange guy (me!), Samantha's new daddy- Russ Herner, world famous Freighter Jim, and Samantha's now former daddy, Jay Klehfoth. What a great time we had! Thanks again to all!

Wow you have a picture of Freighter Jim, I always thought he was like Tim Allen's neighbor, peering thru the "Fence"

Kim, same for me!! Loved seeing everybody, even those whom I only met that day! As usual, took me a minute to remember Keiths name!! Nothing new there!

George..ha ha...that's a good one! Often Jim "takes it on the chin" when he expresses his opinion, but he too is one heckuva model T enthusiast. Too bad he's so dang busy hauling, and HELPING the Museum-gratis no less- or he COULD be out driving one of his own! Some day he will.
