Great event thank you David for making all of the arrangements and get Ford involved.
Petit Jean Swap Meet and Car Show
A celebration of the Tís 100th birthday was recognized at the 50th Annual Petit Jean Swap Meet. The Arkansas Tin Lizzies displayed a number of cars belonging to our members. Henry Ford III and Will Rockefeller were both there and spoke to a good sized group of onlookers at the opening of the car show and judging.
They were gracious to all the meetís visitors seeking autographs on cars, posters and other memorabilia. The Ford Motor Company supplied 3,000 posters for our club to give to visitors and to our members they gave commemorative pins and some hard bound pictorial histories of the Model T. Many of our members were pleased to have their memorabilia autographed by Ford.
This was also an occasion to honor our past club presidents.
David Ragsdale (2005), our founding president, Mike Walker (2007) and Morris Dillow (2006) have led our group in the first years of the Arkansas Tin Lizzies. We all appreciate their efforts and time spent for the club. They each were presented with a clock engraved with their name and the year they served.
