Corrected the link I think let me know.
I got out to have a look at this ‘29 Hudson that was being hauled to Kenora. I’ll have to see what else is for sale at the location

My son's 61 348 Biscayne 2 door sedan (ex SDHP car) from my 62 Bel Air hardtop.
Another view from a few years ago. My buddy Lonnie leading in a 61 Starliner, followed by Ron in a 61 Catalina, then Jim in a 62 Impala and me in the back in my 62. We are on surface streets in Sioux City heading to a Mom and Pop restaurant for breakfast. This was a trip from Sioux Falls to Des Moines, all on secondary roads, to attend a Goodguys show.
Looking though my windshield (frame) of my roadster pick-up project. Yea, I know its sitting on a trailer but that didn't stop me from crawling in and making vroom vroom noises....
It was a weird really warm day so I was out with the COE....
Just off the boat 6mths ago and the other day, we drive on opposite side of road so I'm not driving into oncoming traffic or overtaking. Nothing nicer than seeing the 2x4 air-box through the back of the hood. Would love a HR intake and heads for Christmas.
If you get caught driving here whilst using your phone it's a huge fine. Double demerits / fines etc during some holiday periods.

Out for a Sunday drive
Minnesota back road in my 60 corvette
last saturday doing some business.... freeway flying....
While we were on our last road trip with the whole family, my mom needed to stop by the side of the road to get some clarity. It was the last family trip and she was a little sad. But, on this long driving road trip with two big teenagers in the back seat, she was happy as a lark. So, on the way home, she decided to take a movie of the side views and through the windshield of our 2 door, 1957 Buick Roadmaster. She normally does not take any photos, let alone movies, but we gave her the movie camera just for fun.
As we were winding around corners and downhill dips, she got a little woozy looking through the small viewfinder. So, she asked to pull over. Then as she felt better, she spots something unusual in the woods, just ahead. She takes out the 16mm movie camera and starts recording at what we thought was just some woods.
To our surprise, she saw a deer in the woods, then it pounced across the road in front of the 1957 Buick. What a catch for a novice photographer. After weeks of the vacation and film processing, she could not wait to see it on the giant movie projector screen.
At home, I had to set up the movie projector several times for her and her friends that came over for a visit. She was proud of the film that she shot and was the narrator, as I showed the film. Not the boys, and not the dad, but the films that she personally shot from within the 1957 Buick Roadmaster.
“A DEER THROUGH YOUR WINDSHIELD”
1958 last road trip with the teens
I never left the driveway but I was cruising the back roads yesterday....
Locked down for too many days. Had to get some driving time.

a road in Kauai leading to Hanalei in the North Shore…
These days, since we cannot go anywhere in our cars, here is a shot thorough a windshield at some interesting highway obstructions in the middle of summer, a long time ago on an island in the Pacific Ocean. They were common happenings all along this highway from one end of the island to the other side.
This photograph was taken by my wife on the road back to our friend's vacation house. In going through our photo files recently, we immediately thought of our mess of a shortened vacation road trip on the mainland. I guess the last time we drove through the Midwest 10 years ago, there was a similar road obstruction that lasted for an hour, plus road construction in the highway ahead. That, put a damper on our long, cross-country planned, road trip to the Eastern Seaboard.
In this Kauai highway photo above, we were in a place with no way to turn around and head for home. We just plodded along at a horse’s pace. Time slows down being surrounded by tons of water. We also just had plenty of time on our hands, after all, it was an island paradise vacation...
My wife’s favorite saying in times like these: “What else were we doing?” But, just outside of St. Louis on Highway 44, one Summer, we got stuck and decided to break. At a nearby convenience store, the guy told us to take a highway (44 TO 7) that led directly to Kansas City. My wife took over and through the Ozark lake area, we were in Kansas City in record time.
Then after a few days resting from that ordeal, "We were not in Kansas anymore..."
