Continuation of my 1938 Special thread


Recommended Posts

I mentioned this in the July Update which I just sent this week. The place is on Rt 9 in Saratoga Springs and every friday is a Cruise night. It starts areound 5 PM and if you go they give you a free 1/4 chicken dinner. The food is pretty good, and they have an actual low powered radio station there, playing oldies. It's pretty neat. Any way, Matt Johnson lives right down the road and he has opened his collection for viewing to our members who attend too. Sort of two for one deal. The cruises stop when the race track opens. Everyone is invited...Brothers and Mom too.

This is somewhat unrelated but the mention of Hinckley-Myers caught my attention. This company in Jackson, Michigan was started by my grandfather, Fred Hinckley. He also had a mill and machine shop on a race near Vandercook Lake and Hinckley Blvd. I know little about him as he died one year before my birth. Any information about him or his automotive related endeavors would be appreciated. One final tid bit - when I was a kid there was a photo of my grandfather and Henry Ford sitting on the porch of the Hinckley house in Vandercook lake. I don't know where that went.
