Towed a 55 Imperial to the Museum up by Roger and brought back the 56 Adventurer.

Northeast Classic Car Musuem.

I was there last Saturday!  A friend who is a member of the museum  had his white '57 Olds 98 convert on display there and we drove it back to his garage (you should see his new 40 x 60 garage!).  All the 1950s cars on loan had to be out this month for a Mustang 50th Anniversary display for the next season.

Was it the white and gold '56? That's a nice car, and I like the '59 white & gold Adventurer convert even better, and love the metallic blue '59 DeSoto coupe the best.

Hope you got time to check out all the cars, an outstanding collection of '30s V12 and V-16 classics, biggest collection of Franklins in the world (they were made in Syracuse (20 mi away), some excellent '50s and 60's Mopars, and lots of others.

That's it!  North East.  Thanks Roger


I fancied that C17 Air Flow though.  Absolutely stunning car.  I still remember the safety advertisement on the Air Flow, rolling it off a cliff.

That museum is well worth a visit, the quality and number of cars is outstanding, especially being located in such a small rural town.  George Staley the founder restored many of those big Classics himself. Is the '55 Imp you took up going on display?

Did ya stop by Willett? You were right next door.

No I didn't go to Willet.  I was up there a few weeks ago.  I had the owner of the DeSoto with me so I stayed on target.  Besides, it was getting to be a very long day.  We were at the Museum 2 hours more than planned.  The Desoto had to get pushed out, then they wanted to start it.  Took forever.

I agree the quality is way up there.  That was the best airflow I have ever scene as an example.  The Desotos were awesome.  I have to go back there.  Our guys have several cars there.  Next year I have to go get that 66 Chrysler vert and bring it hiome

Was that the dark green 66? It was a real beauty.
