November 10, 2017-Video from Model T Museum library opening shows Silver Streak, mentions book about the Bradford Model T Girls.

November 10, 2017

On November 4, the Model T Museum in Richmond, Indiana held a dedication of their recently completed Bruce McCalley Memorial Library.  Bruce was a giant in Model T research and history and was one of the 6 original founders of the Model T Ford Club of America.  His book, Model T Ford, The Car That Changed The World is considered the bible on the history of the Model T, complete with annual production information by Ford facility, and what design changes were incorporated into the T in each year of production. Bruce passed away in 2012.

The attached Youtube video link captured the highlights of the Saturday, November 4 dedication.  Mike Vaughn,  the current President of the MTFCA is the master of ceremonies.  In addition to opening the library, Mike talks about lots of the other renovations that have taken place at the museum, and the 12 additional Model T’s that are on loan to the museum this year…..including the Silver Streak!  It’s a 26 minute tape and you may not want to watch the whole thing, but I would encourage you to watch from about the 7:00 minute mark where Mike talks about the cars that are on loan thru about the 11:15 mark.
