Summer Tour - Tecumseh Trail

Tecumseh
The Mad River Ts Summer Tour will be held Sunday, August 3, and start from Studebaker's Family Restaurant in New Carlisle.  Trailer parking will be available nearby the restaurant.  Plan to meet for brunch at Studebaker's around 9:00 a.m.  Meals and snacks will be from Studebaker's excellent breakfast menu. 
The National Road (Tolls)
The tour will be a leisurely route through some beautiful countryside within historic Clark County.  Sites along the way will be significant in the life of Tecumseh, great leader within the Shawnee tribe.  Along the way we will use and cross the National Road, historic Route 40, which played a huge role in America's westward expansion.  This road will take us to Tecumseh High School, and the annual large cruise-in that financially supports the Tecumseh athletics program.  Registration to join the cruise-in is an option for tour participants.  The tour will conclude at Studebaker's in early afternoon.

Mark your calendar now for this fun run tour.  Details and maps will follow via e-mail messages.

Featured Member T - May/June 2014

The Gale Halderman Museum and Gale's 1927 Coupe
Our Featured Member T is the 1927 Coupe owned by Gale Halderman, a fully restored Ford in the Halderman Museum in Brandt, Miami County. The beautifully restored Coupe, and several other Ford cars, will be on display in the Museum when the Mad River Ts visit there later this driving season. Be sure to put this event in your plans so that you may visit with and enjoy the design work of Gale, Director of Ford Design and designer of the Mustang, now celebrating its 50th Anniversary.
