Frog Follies and Cars in the Archives

Are you headed to the Frog Follies this weekend?

“Since 1975, each August the E’ville Iron Street Rod Club has put on a rod run for street rod owners. It is held at the Vanderburgh County 4-H Center in Evansville Indiana. At the first event we had 44 registered street rods. Since that time the Frog Follies has grown to average over 4000 street rods each year. The event became known as the Frog Follies after the club had a bull frog race at the first event. We’ve had entries from Alaska, Australia, Canada, and all 48 continental states over the years. Since 2010 we can boast that the Frog Follies “is THE largest PRE 49 Street Rod event anywhere in the world!”

We might not have a fancy hot rot here at the Archives but we do have our share of vehicle references! Check out this Vehicle Registration for a 1924 Ford Touring car.

Our friends at the Benson Ford Research Center, holders of the Henry Ford Collection, supplied us with an advertisement for just such a vehicle. Here at the archives, we think a nice springtime drive sounds nice.  We’d also probably spring for the special de-mountable rims.
