Drove the Roadster in the Bridgewater Fair Firemen's Parade last night!
Swung by the museum.
Yes, I drove the T-bucket to a Cruise-in at the Dairyland Drive-in in Alvin, Texas last night. Lots of cars there, many were not HAMB friendly. The restaurant has been in business since 1960.
Home- bound this weekend, they tarred and chipped my road yesterday. Stones flying everywhere!
Drove this to a local show yesterday,Thanks for the photo Mark.
^^ Cool pics
Over 300 miles with rain, mud, gravel roads and drag racing. Makes for a dirty hotrod but such a blast. I'll be back to the hamb drags again.
A friend of mine got his flat head 60 B in his scooter running, was hauling it around in his 36 Flathead truck! Said he's got another 60 B for his lawn mower Lawn Mower
On Aug 18 my wife and I took the coupe for a ride up through the back roads in WI in the really nice weather. We put about 140 miles on the coupe that day. On the 19th we took the coupe to a visitation of a friends father up in Platteville WI, about a 130 mile round trip. Another great day for a ride. Saturday the 24th my son and his family in his 57 Dodge wagon, my grandson and his girl friend and his mother in his 64 Chrysler, and my wife and me in the coupe took off from Freeport and drove to Maquoketa IA to watch some dirt track racing, then we drove up to Debuque IA for a Mopar show before heading home. This is an annual family event we have been doing for 4 years. By the time we picked up the dog from the kennel, the trip odometer on the coupe said we traveled 210 miles. The coupe is my primary summer driver. Gene
