Hope You Had a Happy Halloween
November 2nd, 2009
Hope you had a fun Halloween - we sure did. The boys, Susan and I have documented how crazy we are by carving auto manufacturer logo themed pumpkins this year :-) You can likely guess which one is mine. Susan did the wonderful Mustang - she is obviously the only one of us with any talent whatsoever...
I'm also happy to add that we now have some great additions to the Friends of Cornelia gallery - a beautiful red 1954 International R-112 (yep, another one!) and an amazing 1916 Model K. We would love to see more, so if you have a project going or just some good graphical information to add, by all means, sign up for a user account and toss up some photos!
In other news, I have been researching paint for Cornelia (nothing like getting ahead of yourself since we haven't even started tearing her down yet...). Nonetheless, I have quite a bit of information including paint chips, color mix information, and documentation from International Harvester's Paint Committee (courtesy of the Wisconsin Historical Society) that I will be posting on a new "Paint" page that I'll add to the "Truck Facts" section. Look for it over the next few days or so.
Susan and I are also working with Jim Hadfield of OldIHC.org, which I consider to be the premier source of information and the best user forums for old International truck owners on the Internet, to update the site. I'm helping Jim a little with the coding and Susan is helping out with her artistic talents. We're both glad to be of service.
