SCMC Attended Events - Centennial Celebration

[ Home ]



These unique Ford's were all over the place.

The Model A's and T's filled up several parking areas.  I tried to get someone to let me sit in their car but they were all pretty much against anyone sitting in them.

The best I could do was get a picture standing beside this
1914 Model T Ford.

On Friday night we all went out to the Drive-In.  There were more Cobras there then you could shake a stick at.  Needless to say, we got several new members from this event.

Charlene Tinkham and Peter Calvert parked together. 

Potential SCMC members discussing the upcoming movie.
We watched the movie "Bullitt" with Steve McQueen.

Each morning we met for breakfast and went through the same ritual. Friday consisted of a tour of the Henry Ford estate and Saturday consisted of a tour of the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village. (Part two and three in a three part series) 

One of the places we went to eat after all of the festivities was Rio Bravo.  We all then went out to the parking lot for a group picture.  It's hard to see everyone but some familiar faces are:(left to right) Darius Rudis, Steve Tanner, Tony Sorrentino, Peter Calvert, Ken Walder, Jimmy Bost, Dennis McCrary, Phil Saglimbene, Phillip Saglimbene, and some friends.

It took us a while to get everyone together but here you can see just a few people from our club.  If you have ever gone to an SCMC event then you know it takes at least 30 minutes to get ready for a picture and 1 hour to decide where we are going to eat.

This was a cool picture with the sunset and the lights on all of our cars.  It took us a while but we finally got everyone together in one spot for the shoot.

When we got to the hotel, the sun was about down but we squeezed in a few photos for this shot.  From left to right are:  (bottom) Dennis McCrary, Cindy Harrison, Dave Gaudreau, Tony Sorrentino. (top) Steve Tanner, Vaughn Moore, Sam Engel, Dave Stuart, Darius Rudis, Peter Calvert, Joe Johnson, Jimmy Bost, and Pat Madigan.
This event was so big that you couldn't even cover it all in five days.  It was a huge undertaking and there were over 225,000 visitors at the event.  It had to be a logistical nightmare but if it was, you didn't know it because everything seemed to go so smoothly. Only a small portion of the event is being covered simply because we didn't have time to attend everything. My hat is off to all of the people that made this such a successful event.  We know you worked a lot of hours and for that we are grateful that you shared a piece of history with fellow Ford enthusiasts. 
Be sure to read part two and three coming out soon where we cover the Henry Ford estate and Greenfield Village along with the Henry Ford Museum.  We hope you enjoyed the display coverage and can feel as if you were there.
