    I have been watching some old Roy Rodgers westerns and noted a 1946 Willys has a big role in some of these shows. I googled it and this is what I found. This might be interesting reading for the old-timers that grew up watching these shows in the club. You might want to post this to the website as a fun article

    I thought it was about time I update everyone on what the Twin Ports Mustang & Ford Club is doing. Don’t forget to check out our web site calendar for other shows

    Iin the area:


    The club has a number of events coming up.

    First, National Mustang Day is this coming Tuesday, April 17. We are hosting a Show ‘n Shine at Benna Ford from 6 – 8 p.m.

    Despite the snow storm of today, the forecast is calling for sunny weather both Monday and Tuesday with temps in the mid-30s.

    Hopefully, enough snow will melt, and we can bring and show our cars there.


    Secondly, Saturday, April 21, we will be cruising to  Hayward  to celebrate the 54th birthday of the Mustang. Bob Raaflaub has 

    set this up. Plans call for us to meet at the wayside rest are east of  Superior  and depart at 8:30 a.m. for  Lake   Nebagamon  where 

    we will be having breakfast at the Village Inn. We will leave the restaurant about 10 a.m. and take  Cty Rd S  over  Stones

    Bridge to Hwy 27 South and arriving at Timber Ford in  Hayward  between 11:30 a.m. and noon. Following that people 

    will have time to visit the shops downtown and have lunch someplace like Norske Nook before heading home.


    The club meeting will be Tuesday, April 24, 6 p.m. at Barker’s Waterfront Grill located at  300 Marina Dr.  in  Superior .  We will have our meeting

    and then dine and socialize after.


    We also have the following shows and cruises coming up.

    to it.


    Saturday, June 3, club member Dennis Little is coordinating with Feidler Ford in Grantsburg to have our club at its car show. Kim and I will probably go down the night before with our motor home.

    Tuesday, August 21, at Benna Ford is the “Power on Tower” car show. We will be doing this car show instead of the  Bong   Center  car show.

    Received some depressing news about the Fagen Airshow Event, today. Only HMVs that will be welcomed at the Airshow, will be War 2 HMVs only!

  • Friday, February 16, 2018 4:52 PM | Deleted user

    As Paul's passion with HMVs was mentioned in his obit it would be a nice touch if some green machines could be present at least in the parking lot of St. Johns in Brookfield.  Just a suggestion.

    Greetings Red Bull HMVA manager,

    We are seeking items from all of America's wars and conflicts that can be donated or sold to our future museum.  We are seeking paintings, drawings, still and film cameras, video cameras and any other items that were used to document our wars and conflicts.  Our museum will actually begin from the American Revolution and beyond.  If you know any contacts, please have them contact us.

    MCCHSM’s Mission Statement

    “We honor US military combat camera troops, commanders, project officers, trainers, support technicians, laboratory personnel, film/video editors, sound technicians, administrators and civil servants that worked with us in combat camera units, headquarters, combat camera/photo/video training schools and the pentagon.   Our pictorial history began with the American Revolution.  Talented artists placed themselves on hilltops surrounding battlegrounds in harm’s way to capture the images of battle and preserve these historical events for future generations.  During the Civil War, advancements in technology enabled the photographers to capture the battlefield with single still shot cameras in very close proximity to the line of fire to freeze that moment in time.  In addition, these still photographers initiated aerial reconnaissance in hot air balloons.  As time and technology progressed, so did the advancement of combat tactics where the battlefield moved between ground and air during the American/Mexican Conflict and WWI to the present.  Civilian cameramen were replaced by the combat camera that we have today – where history is recorded in the battlefield whether with air patrol or ground troops, up close and in the middle of the action.  It is to these brave individuals this museum is dedicated along with the support technicians who supported them.  A battle may be fought bravely and won, but who would remember, when no one is left to tell the story if not for the pictorial record preserved in time.” (Ms. T Houck).  We also support and honor our civilian war correspondence, i.e. Ms. Marie Colvin who was killed in Afghanistan in 2012 (1956 to 2012).  (Combat Camera “Keeping the Tradition” by Dr. Sylvester Caraway Jr., USAF retired).  

    Kind regards,

    Dr. Sylvester Caraway Jr. USAF retired (1974 – 1994) – Prior combat cameraman
