Dear Participants & Members:
Thanks for preparing and displaying your vehicle at our meet on Sunday.
What a huge success, congratulations, another great meet. I agree, the weather has everything to do with your presenting to the public these fine examples of the free worlds industrial heritage. So many of the vehicles on display were show stoppers and easily would be best in show at any show that I have ever attended anywhere. I counted eighteen vehicles that made their Hallockville debut at our meet, more than ever before; too many first timers displayed to list here.
    I could not keep my eyes off the black 1954 Oldsmobile 98 convertible, V8 with standard transmission.  You know how when you lock on to a vehicle and can't get enough of it, black convertibles will mess up your head!
I went back to 1954 for a few hours, thanks for evoking fine memories of a misspent childhood!
For me, getting permission to "touch" that black Olds was my physical connection to my past. Uncle Al drove me
around in the front seat back in 54, forgot all about it til I saw that dashboard.
Hope you too got the "connection", it's why we display.
    My thanks to all who worked so hard making our meet a resounding success, the Hallockville Farm Museum

youth program is one of my favorite.

Thanks again for the memories, looking forward to next year at Hallockville.
