- Recent Programs -

Mr. Carleton Pate of Glastonbury presented a very informative program about Ford motorcars prior to the Model T. There were many more models made from 1903 to 1909 than one might think! He is the author of "Pate's Early Ford Automobile Encyclopedia", a wonderful resource for historians of early motorcars. His website is www.earlyfordcars.info.

Mr. George King restored a WW1 Model T ambulance using as many original parts as possible, and rebuilt the body to the original plans. He brought it to France in 2015 for the 100th anniversary of WW1 as a tribute to the many American volunteers who went to France at their own expense to drive these ambulances and evacuate 500,000 soldiers over a 3 year period. More information may be found at www.ambulance255.org.

 

We have received word that Dr. Norma Granville, daughter and niece of the Granville brothers has passed away. Her talk about her family and the Gee Bee aircraft was most entertaining and informative and her professional career was also something to behold. Photos from her March '07 talk about the Gee Bee may be seen here. Our condolences go out to her family and collegues.

 

Photos from the June '07 meeting (TITANIC) may be seen here
