This great report from cRc member Jerry Starr:
I was busy last week, participating in the 70th Revival Glidden Tour. This year it was based in Oklahoma City, the first time in 105 years.
The Glidden Tour began in 1904 as a long distance endurance and reliability test for the new-fangled horseless carriage. The annual event became the Glidden Tour the next year because a millionaire, Charles Glidden, funded a big prize for the winner.
By 1910 the automobile was a familiar device and considered to be dependable transportation, and the tour was suspended. Seventy years ago the tour was revived as a fun event for people with cars made before 1943. Some people like the tours so much they have participated in many of the events around the country.
Keep an eye out for this hot new Ford Roadster, coming in from California and joining the club.....owners are Joe Nelle.... and Starla Outland
Congratulations to Neil and Susan Wood -your 1929 Model A Tudor was selected as the monthly "DIG MY RIDE" article by Doug Hill.
DID YOU KNOW? Midway grocery and deli is now open evenings until 8PM.......
