Greetings to all Montana 500 Friends,
I must say that all the Montana 500 preparation activity in Spokane ignited my curiosity so a friend and I joined the organization and came to the Bozeman run to see what it is all about. We had a ball doing the Lowland tour and meeting new friends. Of special note concerning the run was the wonderful support and participation that Bozeman Ford Owner Dave Wallin gave the Montana 500. Thank you Dave for generously providing the use of the Ford agency for meetings, breakfasts for the entire group, use of the agency for safety inspections and after-run tear-downs, and the Barbeque Picnic. Thank you, also, Mrs. Wallin and the employees who did so much work. It was wonderful to have so much TV coverage of the event. Thank you for the support of Bozeman Ford employee Roger Beverage. Often-times, Roger was driving his own 1914 T-touring car pointing the way and being helpful in a hundred ways. Thank you Lynn Rogers for your expert help with in-house details. It was, also, special to have Dave and his wife drive the 1914 T-Touring car on the last leg of the 500.
