It was an honor for me indeed - to visit with Bill Houston at Model T Storage in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.
Bill graciously has loaned his Dad's 1921 Ames Body Frontenac Ford Speedster to be put on display at the MTFCA Museum in Richmond, Indiana.
His Father - Fred Houston - is a founding member of the MTFCA .....
The plane hanging from the ceiling was donated by the Houston Family.
This family has donated so very much over many decades to the gathering & sharing of Model T Knowledge for the Public.
Please honor their Contribution by paying a visit in the near future ....
Oh - and Crossing the Ocean as I type with one finger - is another Famous Speedster that will join the Houston Speedster in time for the 2018 Homecoming & National Tour ....
Thank you for posting the photos. What a contrast between Fred's speedster and the Model T snowmobile in the background!
Thank you to all the many folks, volunteers, workers, behind the scenes folks etc. that support our club, "The Vintage Ford," the museum with it's displays, research, and work shop and make our hobby so much fun. Thank you!

Great to see Fred's speedster at the MTFCA Museum. Does it have a new owner or did Fred's family loan it to the Museum? A great addition.
Contrast is an understatement indeed.
I hauled the Haunted Snowmobile a few years ago.
That - was quite an experience.
The MTFCA Museum is reflective of what the membership contributes - it is YOUR MUSEUM.
The Speedster is for sale.
Proceeds will go to the care of Mr. & Mrs. Fred Houston.
Anyone headed to Chickasha - please stop by & visit Bill Houston at Model T Storage in Broken Arrow, OK.
He has a couple Model T's for sale - along with tools & parts & a whole lot more !

It's great to see that.
Jim -- Fred is a past President of the MTFCA and a founding member of the Speedster Hall of Fame, but not a founding member of the MTFCA.
So - the MTFCA was formed in 1965 ?
(6) founders are referenced but not mentioned anywhere I looked - who were they ?
There is a list of them on the inside front cover of every VF magazine. They all are now deceased.
