I hope that I can see everything I want to in the museum within an hour, because we're trying to make it to Lansing in time to have a little fun before bedtime.

    Thanks, again, for everybody's work on this project. If worse comes to worst, and I don't have the time to stop by on the way up, we'll be retracing our steps on the way home, so I could try to drop by on Sunday.
    I think that you will find that one hour will only cover the "tip of the iceberg".

      Thanks, Stu. I have thought of Phil each time that there is a posting about the "woody".

        Good point, Stu. I hope there is an In Memorium sign testifying to Phil's devotion to this project, "lest we forget." BP
        We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

        "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

          Also need to remember the many volunteers who literally spent thousands of man hours working on this project and those who donated parts and money to the project. It really wouldn't have ever gotten done without them.

            I was at the Museum this morning and helped to push the Woody onto the turn style, if that is what it is called. So it is on display now. Jim

              Thanks for the information and your help. A turntable would be a better description. I remember when a lot of new car dealerships had them in their showrooms. A turnstyle is what people go through, like in a subway.

                I stopped by the museum today on my way home from work and looked in through the window at the Woody. It looks great!

                  As others have said, a BIG THANKS to Phil Brown and his dedication to this project. I am sure he has one heck of a BIG smile right now!
