    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!

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

    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.

    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.

    Good point, Stu. I hope there is an In Memorium sign testifying to Phil's devotion to this project, "lest we forget." BP

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

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".

    Matt,
    I was lucky enough to get many pictures in the past week or so, and you will not be disappointed.

    Peanut,

    OK, as of yesterday, the folks at the Museum are 99.5 percent sure that the Woody will be sitting on the turnstile, front and center at the Museum before Saturday.

    I hope you are able to stop by and see it. It is really a beautiful car that generations will not only learn the story behind it, but also appreciate special it is.

    Gentlemen,

    According to the Museum, they are 99.5 percent sure it will be on display by Saturday. It will be on the turntable in the window at the Museum. They are just working on the final touches for the display.

    Thanks
    Bob H.

    I will find out when the car gets put on the turnstyle on the ground floor, and leave a message here. I hope it works into your plans. It is pretty nice!

    Thanks, Bob!
