Default Steve Plucker Honored by MARC!

It is my pleasure to be able to tell everyone that a Ford Barn member has been honored for some of his contributions to our great hobby.
Congratulations to Steve Plucker who received the George DeAngelis Award for Best Technical Article in the Model A News in 2013.
Helen and I were happy to meet Steve in St. Louis for this special occasion! A big Thank You to Steve for all he has done for our hobby. The Award was for his engine article in the May/June issue of the Model A News. Lots of hours of research went into this article.

Congratulations Steve.

I met Steve about 6 years ago, when he came to my house to check out my early 1928 Model A Roadster. Very nice man and provided a lot of first time information to me about Model As.

You also prove that a person doesn't need to live at the Ford Archives to make quality contributions to this hobby.
