MayJun 1977
Our FIRST Tour
to FDR's "little White House"
SepOct 1974
From a 15-year-old.  His father is a member but perhaps not of RG#24 as we couldn't find any member with the last name Hunt or anyone listed at that address.
Fred Williamson belonged to the National Club very early as this photo of  his 34 Roadster was in the JanFeb 1969 V8 Times.
   He was on the 1968 Prospects List but supposedly didn't join RG#24 until 12/28/1975.   BUT, he appeared on the 1974 Roster.
This CONFIRMS that we were given our Charter on 30 Nov 1969
From V8 times JanFeb 1986      In earlier years the National Club only included 32-40 cars. 
They extended "membership" to include 41-48s on Nov 28, 1971 (announced in JanFeb 1972 V8 Times) and then to ALL Flatheads (32-53) in the latter part of 1983.
California has led the country in IDIOTIC Programs.  This shows they were cooking up a good one MANY years ago.     It worked - we all now use Gasahol in our cars - the Efficiency was DOWN then & the Cost was UP! - STILL IS!
(Of course - surprise - tens of thousands of Politicians became RICH!)
This ran in JulAug 1979 - at least 20 years earlier.

The club only encompassed 1932-1940 Fords at that time. 
RG#24 came in 6 years later!

NovDec 1975 V8 Times
The 1948 models signify the end of an era for Ford V-8
automobiles, which is why members of the Early Ford
V-8 Club have voted not to include Ford cars produced
after this year. 1948 was the final year for all-around
transverse suspension, a design introduced by Henry
Ford with the first Model T in 1908. This year also saw
the demise of the Classic Continental, the great design
inspiration of Edsel Ford. But the flathead V-8 engine
was continued through 1953.

MarApr 1980
The Georgia Group now has more than 100 members, and one of those, KEITH B O N N E R , is in the Brazilian jungles, scouring the underbrush for old V-8s... and as long as Georgia's on my mind, one very prominent member is rumored to have been promoted to Captain of his very own airplane (no, Virginia, it's something larger than the Luscombe he's building in his garage)... and, not to be outdone by Tulsa, Georgia offers their own Pat T-Byrd who drives around in an old V W (looking for a '40
Coupe for her father, we presume).

Was Georga Haynie Jr. a RG#24 Member?
JulAug 1979 - Was Jack Turpin Jr. an RG#24 Member?
I've had the B-400 since September, 1974, obtaining it from a hot-rodder w h o decided it was too tough to tackle (I've never seen a hot rodder w h o likes body work). I've spent more than 2000 hours of raw labor on the car and literally thrown all of it out (except for the body) and replaced it with "spare parts."  Now it's 100% '32 except for the missing top, upholstery and arm rests. I hope that some reader can furnish an upholstery kit or a pattern. Frank Pittinger of Phoenix graciously sent all his old body wood and was instrumental in having top irons made
and has helped me in many ways. -
A. Jack Turpin, Jr  Dunwoody, Georgia
Editor's Note
Mr Turpin runs a steering wheel restoration shop in Georgia.  I 've been after him to advertise in the V-8
Times, but he says he's got his "hands full" now.  He says he's done a lot of Ford steering wheels, mostly banjos, but not too many in the thirties since here are many good reproductions available.  Cracks and
breaks are repaired by sawing out the bad spots and replacing them with epoxy material.  Apparently Mr Turpin is very conscientious and has a good reputation with those who have used his service.  His rates and turnover time seem very reasonable.

Our newsletter started as "Restoration Blues & News" in 1974, then changed to "Restoration News" in Feb 1976 and finally became "the Running Board" in 1986.
After close contention between three fine cars,
the Best of Show Award
(at the Indy Central Nationals) was presented to Ronald Smith of Georgia for his 1934 Roadster. A special award to the Best of Show winner was announced. Bob Scott along with his father James, had commissioned Gene Payne to do the winning car's portrait.
