Great photos! And whilst not entirely relevant, We met a Brooks Baekeland in Spain in 1993 (a genuis in his own right) and his grandfather Leo Baekeland, invented Bakelite, the worlds first plastic. He also invented the first high speed photographic emulsion which he sold to George Eastman (Kodak) in 1900 for $1,000,000 an absolute fortune.
The real point is that Bell, Edison, Ford and Baekeland were all mates and met together and communicated with each other.
These were amongst the most important men in recent industrial history

Those interested in what the program looks like can see it on MAFFI's page,
http://www.maffi.org/My_Homepage_Fil...nirProgram.pdf

It also lists all of the cars in the museum and who is responsible for their inclusion in the museum.

Very cool. With Stan Johnson's gentle persuasion I donated a pair of headlights and some NOS headlight bulbs in original packaging to the museum. I was more than happy to do that. I hope to get there soon!

Not sure if this has been posted previously, but the link is TV coverage of the Model A Museum at the Gilmore:

I wanted so badly to go to this. So near, yet so far away. Thank you very much for the photos!
