G'day Rob,
Thanks to the link you emailed I watched your presentation on Saturday.
Your research has rewritten the incorrect past history of so much that went on at Ford in those early days.
The detail is exemplary and the time you must have spent to find historical facts to back up your theories is to be commended.
I hope in some way your time and effort is not for vane.
I am looking forward to this weeks presentation.
All the very best, John Page, Australia.

Rob, As the model K was raced, was the car used in the races a "special", or was it one that came directly off the production line. Reason I ask, the post I presented from India indicated that the American cars used in races were not what a customer could purchase. The race cars, such as the Model K, were carefully built to compete as a stock car?
