A Motor Muster Reminder
This weekend is the Greenfield Village Motor Muster and it also wraps up the Homecoming Week Celebration for the Ford V8 Club. There have been many antique Ford sightings all week because the club has headquartered at the Edward Hotel. From what I've seen car wise and weather wise, it should be a great show.
My personal observation. I do not speak for the Henry Ford.
Tom, I saw quite a few of the V8s and drivers at Ford's Garage last night. This is Piquette Week at the Garage, ends tonight.
I will be there with my "big Ford" a 1962 Lincoln convertible. Can't wait!
Thomas, you’re right. They all started showing up last night. From the seat of the tow truck, it looked like the Mixer was a success. I gave my son and daughter in law a ride home last night so he could keep his spot by Webster. He told me Friday night was perfect.
I heard of MOTOR OIL and MOTOR HONEY but never MOTOR MUSTARD!
This was a great show today. I highly recommend attending tomorrow if you are able and in the area. You will be happy!
As some of you know, last years' Motor Muster was an utter and complete disaster. The HFM learned from that and made last year's OCF a complete and utter success, to their credit. It's not easy for a major organization to admit they made a mistake and take steps to correct it.
This year, the MM was an amazing turn around from last year. The HFM held several meetings with some chosen participants between last years MM and OCF and, again, to their credit they listened.
Much, much credit must be given to Jim Johnson, his special events team and HFM, president, Patricia Moridian (sp?) for the rebirth of both events. They went far, far beyond what the events have been in the past. A tremendous amount of thought and work went into both events. And, from what I know, the both events will continue on this path.
Since there are no pictures, it never happened.

Eric's "big Ford"
My friend Jim's Cord
My brother and the Good Humor lady. She and her husband sold a lot of ice cream with the heat.
No photo, but I did have the pleasure of talking to Kevin Prus.
The ice cream line
A couple of 1941 Fords still at the hotel. I didn't talk to the coupe owner but I believe his car has the flathead six first offered that year. The convertible is owned by a Ford retiree.
And Me. This was my ride for the three days I was there.
Tom Miller, When the heck did you take that picture of me????
I'm looking more and more like an my ancestors: an old Italian immigrant!!!
It was Saturday. You paused a while north of the carousel and play area. That was when the other Tom, Judy, and I mobbed you.
Tom, it was s pleasure to meet you and chat a bit. Thanks for the photo of my "big Ford."
Great pictures thanks for posting
I enjoyed our conversation. With any luck, I'll have my "big Ford" parked in the '65 area next year. It felt funny not bringing anything this year.
My son got good at asking me where my car was parked.
