Flo's crashing the Bash

My one and only 7 pole flag pole holder.

59 Electra Bourbon - 75 Suburban Trailering Special underneath... 454 power baby!

Tried to trade in for this tow vehicle. Sweet!

Up on the hill!

Hybrid Streaming

Just got home from the show!

In the turn at the car show.

She made it all in one piece.

It is Memorial Day afterall... just had to fly the colors.

Well, the poor old Buick had been sitting up behind the barn for the past 8 months or so, and with this weekend's Norwich Car Show, I figured I'd get her out, put the new Holley carb on it, and see if I could get her going... and going I did.. this morning, I decided to hook up Sophia to Flo and see if she could handle towing down the 5 miles to the fair grounds... I'm happy to report, there and back with success. Here are a couple pictures... many people went in and out of the trailer... having a good time! The Buick is a 59 Electra on top, but a 1975 two wheel drive trailer special Cevy Suburban on the bottum with a 454 power plant mated to a Turbo 400 tranny. It was fun!
