PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

May 2022
 
Hello Club Members,
 
It looks as if Spring has finally sprung here in Northern Indiana.  If we wait a while, that too will probably change, but we will enjoy it while we can.
 
Our latest club outing was on April 23rd, a visit to The NATMUS Museum in Auburn.  A lot of improvements have been made there since our last visit.  Our docent was very informative and I learned some interesting facts about the museum history.  We were allowed free reign of the place, including having our pictures taken at the controls of the GM Futureliner.  
 
Joining us were Greg Minnich, Kevin and Diane Mark, Gary Nordman, Bud and Freda Gibson, Larry and Helen Kwolek, Bob Tucker, Keith Landis, and myself.  We were excited to see Bob Tucker’s newly acquired 1962 Thunderbird Hardtop in Metallic Red.  It reminded me of my first Thunderbird, a white 62 hardtop done with mag wheels and no Fender skirts, just like Bob’s.  It is a very nice car!
 
After our museum tour, we headed to Bo Doogie's BBQ for a great meal.  We were also scheduled to visit The Early Ford V-8 Museum, but I am not sure if anyone made it there as I had to leave for a family dinner.
 
Our thanks to club V-P Keith Landis for leading the pack and making our lunch arrangements.  Be sure to check out our photos on our Facebook page.  
 
Our next club adventure is a car show in Bluffton, on next Saturday May 14th, The Sweets, Hot Rods and Freedom Show at The Family Ford Dealership 970 Main Street.  It is from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.  Donuts by Grand Sweet Shop, Food and Ice Cream, Dash plaques for the first 50 cars.  If you want to caravan there, lets meet at 8:30 AM (ugh) at the old Waynewood Inn, 8421 Bluffton Road, just North of The Bear Field Thruway.  
 
Plans are also underway for Thunderbird Appreciation Day on May 22nd.  details as they develop.  
 
That’s all the news from Hoosierland,  COME FLY WITH US!
 
Best regards,
 
Roger Noll, President
