My friend John hosted our Montgomery Country Early Ford V-8 Club meeting at his home. Many of us drove our old Fords there. It was a beautiful setting there in John's front yard.
I helped John raise this windmill, a lot of us did. To See my earlier blog about the mill raising, click here.
I took the first two with Skywatch in mind. That sky was so pretty on this July summer Texas day! This picture I wanted the windmill, lake, and lawn. The boat is extra.
Super sized: [the setting] [the cars] [the food]
Here is setting. Most of our cars were parked on he other side of the lake. My car, a 1950 Ford Deluxe Tudor was absent. I came in with the '98 Mustang GT convertible. For sure this was a top-down day.
The cars for our club are Fords, from 1932 when the Flathead V-8 engine was introduced through 1953 when this engine was replaced with an overhead valve V-8 engine.
Of course we ate, the Jim Bunch always eats (link). We had BBQ brisket and chicken, potato salad, beans, chips and an awfully lot of fattening desert. Plus drinks from water to tea to all the popular soda drinks.
Super sized: [1953 Ford] [1934 Ford front] [1934 Ford rear]
On the left is a nice 1953 Ford Sunliner Convertible, the newest car for the Club. The cars just have to fit these years, '32-'53, I would like to have a 1952 or 1953 Ford Six-cylinder. This is a more modern overhead valve engine with a lot less problems.
The other car is a 1934 Ford Three-Window Coupe, front and rear. Today no one brought a 1932 Ford, the oldest for our club. My friend John sold his very nice 1932 Five-Window Coupe (little duece coupe) with a rumble seat. This 1934 Ford Coupe has a trunk instead of a rumble seat.
Our Club is affiliated with the national Early Ford V-8 Club of America (link). Each of us is a member in the national organization. I am a charter member of the Montgomery Club as well.
