Sweet Hall of Fame 2011

Here's the Sovereign of the Road as it departs the old Hyde Estate in Cooperstown, NY. It was part of a party Friday night for the Chairman's event at the Baseball Hall of Fame Induction weekend. That's the gate house in the backdrop.

The Sweet Sovereign sitting above Otsego "Glimmerglass" lake in Cooperstown, here on the old Hyde Estate.

The event was a "Diner's, Drive-Ins' and Dives" themed event. Below is one of the props for the event... above was the main feature and according to the Chairman - Sensational!!

Upon pickup on Saturday, Jane presented me with an Old Grand Dad trailer.

This is now one of my prized possessions... signed by the 2011 Baseball Hall of Fame Class - Roberto Alomar, Bert Blyleven, and Pat Gullick... priceless!!

Diamond Brite

Asked what polish I'm using. Diamond Brite Metal Truck Toolbox Polish... found in your Lowe's in the truck toolbox isle.. usually about eye level on a shelf. I love the stuff.

Here is one bottles worth. Getting there!

Mission Successful

Well, the fetching of the 1958 Airstream Caravanner went well! Actually, extremely well. If you look off the to the right on my "Blog links" you will see one titled "Another 1958 Restoration" - well, this is LeRoy. He was started and now we will finish him!! I used some tires from a friend that I got them from in Frederick.... the photo directly below if gasing up in Frederick, MD - ironically.

Gasing up in Frederick, MD

1 mile into the tow - in Mount Solon, VA

At Dorsey's Market..... making a needed rest stop and checking the hubs. Mounted the new tires on 30 year old grease.... they stayed cool the whole way home!

All in all - it was a great ride home. My Airstream-Into-It-Ness is coming back!
