Here's some pics. from the Doodlebug club in Franklin N.Y. Be patient my daughter is trying to show me how to post these. I thought I'd better give you guys some background first before I start posting my latest build. The club was very helpful with parts when I built the Model A in my avatar and asked me to join even though I don't have a doodlebug, at least not one that fits the requirements of the club. Most are Model A based and banger powered although there are a few exceptions. So here we go, first the sign for the club. Here's a shot from inside the clubhouse, the guy on the right is Mel and the club is run out of his place. Here's the outside view of the clubhouse / Mels' garage. Mel has quite a collection, doodlebugs, hot rods, stockcars, almost anything that has wheels. Here's a shot of some of the bugs, wish it had been a better day for pics. but what can I say the Northeast weather sucks most of the time. Here's Lannys' bug he's the acting pres. of the club. A lot of the guys in the club also have hot rods. There are two clubs in the Franklin area and one that I know of in N.H. The N.H. club is more involved in pulling, while the Franklin clubs do more trail riding and parades. In recent years the Franklin club has reached out to the Mohawk Valley Model A Club with a pretty positive reaction, even though seeing Model A s cut up isn't something you would normally expect the A club to appreciate they do seem to be interested in the creative building techniques used in days gone by. For those unfamiliar with the doolebugs they originated during the war years when farmers cut down thier old Model A s and put a second tranny in and a big truck rear and used them to plow and drag with among other duties around the farm because tractors were hard to come by with most of the manufacturing efforts going into tanks etc.
