60th Anniversary Tour Updated 09/12/2023
Sept. 30 we will be doing a tour to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Rose City Model T club and we will be touring from Lewis and Clark parking lot to Guy Talbot State Park with a stop at the Vista House. They have opened up all the parking again so working with them to block off parking slots for our Model Ts and As which they usually don't do but due to the tie in with the history of both the cars and Vista House he is willing to try to accommodate us. I need to get a count of how many cars before he can approve it. If you will be coming on the tour and bringing your car please let me know by the 23rd. I will also be sending a sign up sheet at the meeting also. This will be bring your own picnic lunch and a dessert for potluck dessert. For more information, please contact Aleta Worthey.

Christmas Party 2022 Update 9/19/2022

Chickasha Swap Meet 2022
By Keith Townsend

I was able to attend the Chickasha Pre-War Swap Meet in Chickasha, Oklahoma this year for the first time and plan to return again next year. Covid-19 did no favors to swap meets across the country beginning in 2020 and current high cost of fuel has been a hindrance for 2022. According to those who know, there were probably only half the number of the vendors in attendance compared to years’ past. Although the vendors were few, the stuff was good! You will not find any chrome mag wheels at this Pre-War Swap Meet, but you will find booth after booth and table after table of rusty (and restored) gold! Wheels, rims, engines, bodies, fenders, chassis parts, you name it! The vast majority of parts were Model T and A, but there was a lot of Buick, Dodge, Maxwell, Overland, and other parts as well. And prices were quite reasonable.

Since Yvonne and I flew from Portland I only bought a handful of small items, but I had the opportunity to talk with a number of people who I have befriended over the years. Some of whom I knew were going to be there, others who I was surprised to meet, and a few who I had hoped to see, but the stars just did not align. Oh well, next year.

There were a couple of nice cars for sale:


1926 Model T runabout restored $10,500;


1910 Model T touring #24472 older restoration $21,500


1913 Model T touring #186235 rough condition $8,750.


This Ruckstell reportedly sold for $300.




All in all, it was worth the trip. Nice facility, nice people, nice amount of inventory, and no traffic jams! Since we have a daughter who lives only about 45 minutes away, I plan to go back next year!


President's September 2022 Message
Greetings RCMTC Members,
Please Get your Flu Shots and Pneumonia Vaccine!!! And while we are at it remember to review when you had your last Tetanus Shot! Here is another thought. Shingles Vaccination! Too many folks needlessly suffer by not taking advantage of receiving these vaccines and unfortunately some actually die.

These vaccines are readily available in most shopping centers with pharmacies and almost always covered with insurance. We need to stay healthy during our time out for pandemic and ready ourselves for strong recovery to our hobby and return to our club functions!
Cordially,
Patrick D. Lawrence
