Here's the Agawa Canyon from the air. Flew over it on our way to have the Otter float plane we were flying in for service in SSM 2 summers ago.
Sure is beautiful from up in the air.

Now I need to take that train trip!

'59ner Diner is about 20 miles West of Leavenworth on Hy.2, rite at Lk. Wenatchee.
So you would hit '59 Diner first, than Zeke's, than Sultan, by than you should be ready for the Farmers Market and sea food in Seattle!
Lk. Chelan is 45 min.N. from Wenatchee on 97 but worth the extra 1 1/5 hr. drive to and from IMO.
I have a friend that owns a Winery here on 2, beautiful large log home, pond in front, grapes & Pear Orchard, would like to get a pic of your car on the green grass in front of the home/pond!

Were you in Ada on Tuesday about noon? Dang, I was just passing by and think I saw your car in front of Eugene's shop. I need to be less busy, I guess. Have a safe journey.

After a memorable at the Americas Worst Value Inn we headed 30 miles south to the thriving metropolis of Ada Mn. to see our buddy Eugene Vik. He has a big shop right downtown with a bunch of finished cars and a project or two including this 53 Chebby.



41 Buick with Lancer wheel covers on this side and neat wheels from the Early Wheel co and 5X5 spiders on the other





Just how many chopped Buick wagons have you seen in your life?



Our parting shot, thanks for the tour Eugene.



We then drove 60 miles north to Warren Mn to hook up with Adam K, he was still working, ( I remember those days) so we stopped at the local water dept, there was a guy taking pictures that put us in contact with Bob, another local hot rodder. We drove out to his farm to look at his stuff.

58 Chebby 2dr wgn (handyman?)



It's even got a BBC



He has got a nice 61 chebby bubble top but the pic didn't turn out. he's got a bunch of stuff, including this neat inliner manifold.




The pic of the model of the Chebby turned out though



Thhis truck has been in the local area owned by the same family since it was new.


I don't know shit about mudercycles but this is neat.



Hey this dude has an airplane hanging from his shop ceiling. Coolio !!!!!!!!



Adam K was home from work so we went over to see him.

Did I mention that the wind was blowing 40 mph + and the roads are dirt, the chebby needed a bath real bad, took a duster to it for temporary relief.

Adam is an engineer for Artic Cat. I loved this sign



The chassis for his 62 Merc Montery wagon is ready for the body but that needs work yet.





Neat 300 inliner in his work truck, got a milled head and headers.



Said our goodbys and headed for Grand Forks and a night at the Settle Inn. (much better than last night) but first the Mandatory enter the new State picture.



55 Caddy parked in the Perkins restaurant next to the settle inn.



Settle inn was nice we slept in and then headed for Rydell Chevrolet in Grand Forks to see Wes's shop. HOLY SHIT WHAT A PLACE.

To be continued

Good Morning from beautiful downton Devils Lake ND, it's cold and dreary and it rained all night. Glad we have a good heater, (more on that later).

The first thing that we saw when we entered the Rydell hobby shop was this Caddy, they are building one of the concept cars that Caddy never built. Starting with a 40 4door they are about 1/3 of the way done. It will have a removable hard top.




Next to the finished cars, my favorite is the 40 caddy 4 door that was built for his wife.







48 Sedanette, we had (a buddy and I) one of these in high school.



One of his trophy walls





A Loco under restoration



The Boyd Coddington built fleetline 4dr, with a ton of miles on it. He drives these cars.



This is a head that he built for his race car many years ago it is 2 DBL hump SBC heads, one of them cut in half and then welded to make a 6 cly head. I guess it really screamed.



I remember this car being unloaded at Detroit when it when it won the Ridler. It blew me away.







We headed west to Devils Lake and it started raining, this was no time to find out that we had no Wipers. Fortunatley we had done the windshield with Aquapel.



Then we found out that we had no heater, Muggs toughed it out though.



Outside of Devils Lake is Greater Dakota Classics now being run by Jamie and Ronnette, Stan Orness's son and daughter in law under the new name.

BLACK MAGIC ROD & CUSTOM at 8313 Hwy 2 E, Devils Lake ND
jamiebmrodcstm@gondtc.com

Great folks who helped this old couple out of potentially dangerous situation. Thanks a ton guys.



The heater turned out to be a clogged or broken vacum line and the wiper was a blown fuse. So after an hour or so of tracing and replacing vacum lines and changing fuses we were ready to go.

"This ain't here first Rodeo, she knows how to sit and wait". That is a quote from Brian Bass.

Jamie and his son with crew member Jesse.






A plaque given to them by Sterling Ashbey for their work on the Merc.




Gonna hang around Devils Lake today and head for Minot tomorrow.

Bob, It was great to meet you. Thanks for stopping by and checking out the place.

One minor correction. it is a '62 Monterey Wagon, not a Comet. Hope you enjoy the rest of the trip.

Good Luck.

Looks like you two are having fun. I once sprained my ankle [golf cart accident..don't ask] so bad the doc said it would heal faster if I'd broken it. Gave me trouble for about 3 years.
Hey, if you two get to my part of the world, let me know and you can stay in our humble extra bedroom.
