Thanks Tim for bringing back some great memories. I graduated from Michigan Tech in 71' and drove that stretch many times while in college and both before and after as a camper/fisherman. Having restored some Model A Fords I'm familiar with the Oak and Ash wood products Henry used. Lots of history for sure. Do you have any tidbits on the soybean plastics used in the Fords, most notably some shift knobs but I think other parts as well. Front mount distributor caps and coil housings??? Seems I sort of remember that Ford raise the soybeans used for these items but I could be wrong - I'm not at all fond of this fuzzy memory I have acquired. Does anybody know for sure about the beans?
