Not Much Has Changed at THF......

Post by George House » Wed Apr 24, 2019 8:20 pm

.....in the last 6 years 😞 Fordson #1 still is without a coil box and the 1914 touring still has 1917-1925 rear axle halves 😞 Oh well, it’ll be Greenfield Village tomorrow and Piquette on Friday...

One of the biggest problems with today’s youth is they’ve never known the fear of hearing leather being rapidly pulled through seven Wrangler belt loops.

You have a number one George? Very cool!
I have a second off the production line of another marque but a first is really neat.

Yesterday I reported on The Henry Ford; today it’ll be Greenfield Village. There’s a 1/4 scale building representing a pre Piquette plant with a docent and the 15,000,000 Ford touring. Here is a picture of the front crossmember of a glossy black frame presented to the public...

Tomorrow - watch out Piquette !!!

As promised, the last venue I visited in Detroit was the Piquette Plant. It blew me away! The antique automobiles were incredible - you can walk around them and even slide on your back under them. Just don’t touch! The docents are witty, very informative, humorous and knowledgeable. Souvenirs are reasonably priced. Quite a contrast to THF. They also have a mock-up mini assembly line. I suggested they donate an excellent T frame to Greenfield Village to replace the above pictured junk and I’ll somehow donate a replacement frame. MTFCI membership even reduces entry tickets to $5. Best entertainment for the money in town !!
