Another neat job crowie... Nothing like brainwashing kids to the Ford Army early… Ford certainly needs them!

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Made 150 copies of the Model T version. The cabin was tough to do in volume. I like your truck version. More play time with it. Our toys go to families in need at Christmas. Our club makes about 1,200 toys annually.
