The year I retired 2010, my wife and I drove our '46 Ford Woodie to the worlds biggest Woodie show called Wavecrest in Encinitas CA, from Long Island NY, 319 other Woodies. Took the entire month of September. Did a lap around Indy, Grand Canyon, Speedway Museum, Vegas, Meteor Crater, Petrified Forest, Arches NP, Bryce Canyon, Williams, AZ and several other sites. Did Route 66 on and off. We did 6877 miles and went thru 19 States. Only rain we had in 30 days was the last two days from Pittsburg, PA to L.I. and when I say rain, it came down in buckets. When we got home the car looked like it was painted a combination of black and gray primer, the whitewalls were brown, what a mess. Can't wait to do it again before I get too old.
