2022 Event Photos

June 25, 2022
When you have a bright shiny object that was built in Evansville 77 years ago and it still flies faster than any of our Porsches, there is only one thing to do: stand in front of it and have your picture taken. Better yet, include your Porsche in the photo.

Susan and I met Rich Gustafson at the Evansville Wartime Museum at 9:00 AM. Rich gave us a quick tour and introduced some of the museum's staff and volunteers. Our immediate task was to find the best locations for one of the museum's most exciting artifacts (its P-47 fighter aircraft) and our tripods outside the hangar. Other SIR members would meet at D-Patrick and drive out in a group to pose for our cameras and tour the museum.

The museum's staff had made the plane available for other car clubs and knew a good spot that would include our members, their cars, and the aircraft with the hanagar in the background. It was fine. We positioned Rich's car and marked it with tape to make positioning each car quick and easy and waited until the group of smiling SIR members arrived to pose with the airplane that caused all the excitement. And then we got busy.

After the picture taking, SIR members were free to tour the museum and take their own pictures. Soft drinks, snacks and lunch were also available. The posed event photos were made into glossy 8x10 color prints and distributed at the July 2 First Saturday meeting at D-Patrick.

The Evansville Wartime Museum tells the story of this community's commitment, inventiveness and sheer determination during World War II. It is a small but growing museum full of fascinating artifacts and illuminating exhibits, including this P-47 fighter built just a short distance away.

Visit the Evansville Wartime Museum website to learn hours, fees, and directions. Then visit the museum in person. You will be impressed!

P.S. Now they have a 1943 M4A4 Sherman Tank on display!
