A Ford Truck And A Mattress
A Mattress caught on the undercarriage of her Ford truck.
The ensuing jumble finally whipped around enough to tear a hole in the fuel tank. The Subsequent Lack Of Fuel Is What Finally Brought Her Vehicle To Its Knees.
She Had Still Managed To Drive 30 More Miles With A 60-Pound Tangle of Stuff Wrapped Around Her Drive Shaft.
She Had it Towed To Her Ford Dealership And Complained That The Vehicle Had A "Sort Of Shimmy" When She Was Driving At High Speeds.
Below Are The Photos Of What They Found At Her Ford Dealership.

The Ford Mechanics Still Can't Believe Their Eyes,
And Still Wondering How To Remove It.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE !
Plans are underway to have a discussion of the Ya ha Tinda ranch at our next Model T meeting January 24/18. I will be giving a short presentation of the ranch, its history, horses, and the 100 year celebration held at the ranch last September. There will be a number of Park Warden slides of a backcountry trip from Jasper to Banff made a number of years ago, which will show some scenic remote locations travelled along on this three week journey.
Ross and I decided to try something different this month that has nothing to do with Model T 's, except for perhaps reference to the ol' "Bennett Buggies' from the past. I have also attached an article and video link on the unique and special horses trained at the ranch.
The Fall Colour Tour will start at the Cochrane AG Society , 1km west of intersection Hwy 22 on Hwy 1A.
Arrival time anytime after 9:30 AM, tour will be starting at 10:00 AM.
Trailer parking is available at the upper lot. at the western end.
Total distance is 115 km. with BBQ lunch at the ‘Wallace Ranch’ on Richards Road.
Hamburgers / smokies and buns will be provided at a nominal cost. Bring you own “potluck dish”.
Directions and map are attached.
Please advise Ross or Tom if you are planning to attend. More info at the meeting Sept. 27Aerospace Museum
