A little clarification concerning the "HCCT Handbook" is in order. The authors, Bob Cascisa and Ron Patterson, approached the MTFCA Board of Directors last year and told us they were planning on writing the handbook to document information concerning the HCCT. The offer to the board was to donate the rights and all sales of the publication to the Model T Ford Club of America. The board approved and the handbook is now available. Mike Vaughn and myself were asked to review the handbook which we did. To recap, Bob and Ron donated rights to the MTFCA and all profits from the sales support the MTFCA.

Looks like a great book! Can’t wait to get one on order.

Thank you Ron and Bob for your efforts in putting the book together, your contributions to the hobby, and for your generosity towards the MTFCA.

Larry & Susan:

The accusations and truths about Mike Kossor's products, and technical facts, have been well documented here the past few years. So, if Mike would donate his profits from his research and products to the MTFCA, like vendor Ron Patterson & his co-author will be doing from their new book, would that give Mike " one of the boys" status like those two are enjoying ??? ... not being barred from expressing or detailing facts about the products ???? .... and promoting product like Regan, Patterson and others have done in the past. Anyone who devoted their time, effort and finances into bettering our hobby with items that have been proven, with positive responses from our Model T fraternity should be supported, not chastised .

I am a life member of the MTFCA .

Please hold a few for those us who have planned to buy it at Chickasha like the above article says. It's probably not too late to get more made, either. Thanks.

Well, “best laid plans,” I guess. Time to order this online. I’ve been looking forward to reading it about as much as going to Chickasha, so I guess at least I’ll get to do one of the two this year.

Hmm, come to think of it, I'm not sure I can do that yet with the museum closed temporarily.

Thank you to the Board of the MTFCA for the support of this project as well as Ron and Bob for a job well done and generous contribution to the hobby. Additionally thank you to Jerry and Kim for delivering and selling copies at the Winter tour last week in Gainesville, FL. This publication will be great addition to any Model T reference library.
