Great pictures. In one pic there is a steering wheel that looks like it had the horn button on the at the bottom of the wheel. After studying the picture it seems that the wheel is made to pivot upward.
Can you shed some light on this remarkable yet unusual wheel?

These were known in the auto trade as "fat man wheels"
If you have ever tried to squeeze in between the steering wheel and the door post in a touring you will appreciate these wheels. There were two types made. One like Steve's, that slides up on the centre post and one that pivots near the top of the rim. Several manufacturers made them. I know of one chap that has a collection of about 100 of these wheels - all sizes and makes. My Dad had one on our 1923 Model T back in the 40's.
I don't know what happened to it.
Rick, those were a superb group of photos. You managed to capture the essence of the weekend. Thanks to all who participated.

I've now update the picture Summary to read:
On September 21st-23rd 2006, the DMAC Annual Meet & Yout was held in historic Fort Erie, Ontario.
Two days of touring included a walking trip thru historic Fort Erie and an old school house, now a museum. We drove the local countryside and stopped briefly at Niagara Falls, at the end of the first day of touring we held our business meeting where Graham and June Mock received the Long Distance having traveled all the way from New Zealand. The second day of touring began with a touch of rain, but it didn't slow our group down, not one bit.
This wonderful meet was concluded with a grand dinner that included Stan Uher of Classic Coachworks as our guest speaker. You'll notice that many of our members came dressed in era clothing for the night. Final shots show everyone packing up and leaving for home.
Thank you Gord and your group for wonderful time.
Rick great job on the Photo's of the Canada meet.
