July 1-4, 2006
The Piquette Ts provided Model T rides to many of the participants in this year's New Center Taste Fest. One goal of the rides was to entice people to visit the T-Plex. Some of the passengers did stay for the Piquette plant tour and had a great time! 

The Piquette Ts kicked off the 2006 tour season right with the Ford Motor Company Village Industries Tour led by Mike Skinner.  The delegation was small but mighty, including Ts owned by Randy Mason, Peter Nikolajevs and Mike Skinner.  Mysteriously, a Dodge began following the group and we kindly allowed them to tag along (just kidding Barry!). 

The Piquette T's Visit Bill Vicary's Ford Museum
The Piquette Ts and T-Plex members were awed by the enormous collection of Ford memorabilia at William “Bill” Vicary’s private Ford museum on March 27th.  Bill’s collection, amassed over more than 50 years, contains several thousand items, many of them one of a kind.  Much of the building’s interior floors, walls and ceiling are covered by interesting items or filled with display cases.


The Piquette Ts held their fourth tour of their first touring season today. Key feature of the tour was driving around the east side of Detroit and the Grosse Pointes (just out of town). The destination of the tour was the Edsel and Eleanor Ford home on Lake St. Clair.


The Piquette Ts held their third tour today.  We started from the Piquette Plant and then paid homage to the site of the former Mack Avenue plant.  It was then on to Indian village where we were able to tour many beautiful homes including the home of our own David Coleman We recieved a history lesson from Bob Cosgrove whos knowledge of the are was second to none.  We ended our tour with a wonderful picnic at the Edsel & Eleanor Ford HoneyMoon Cottage.

The Piquette Ts held their second tour today visiting a pair of cemetaries with extensive automobile connections. The tour started at the Piquette Plant, as usual for our tours, and proceeded up Woodward Avenue to Woodlawn Cemetary where many of the Fords and other notables in automobile manufacturing are buried. Mike Skinner provided the historical background on the various people visited. After lunch, the tour returned down Woodward to the Highland Park Plant. The Ford Administration Building is in the background.

The Piquette Ts had their first tour ever.  Randy Mason and Alan Haas arranged for the club to join the Detroit Yacht Club for it's annual antique car and boat show.  The group was treated to a delicious brunch and their were Rave reviews from those who attended.  We hope to be invited back next year.
