Joe Rogers hosted the members for a tour of his vehicle collection. It was very important to him to make all of the cars run. He collects cars “that are older than him.” Joe shared the history of each vehicle, its previous owner, when he bought it and favorite memories. Vehicles range from his first car, a Model A he purchased at auction in 1947, a 1909 Mitchell Model K (like his parents had) through his Lincolns from 1912 to 1931. Many thanks to Joe for an informative and enjoyable visit.
