Old Car Breakfast Meeting

The first Saturday in every month the Whidbey Island car guys get together for breakfast. It is mostly the very active model A gang that shows up but it is open to anyone with a love for old cars.

 

I showed up for one of these meeting on a 30 degree day in the middle of winter with a sheet of ice covering the road but all the model A guys rolled in with their old Fords.

Well, on a day like this, the first really sunny day of the year here in Washington the parking lot turned in to a mini car show.

 

I pulled out my Canon SLR camera only to find out that I left the SD card at home. You will have to live with these lousy cell phone pictures but you get the idea.

 

This tow truck has been restored to the exact colors and lettering as when it was new. The owner found pictures of the truck when it was new and duplicated everything. It is an amazing truck.

 

This 1929 Sport Coupe has been in the same family for 70 years and still going strong. The current owners’s dad rebuilt the engine in the fifties and he has not touched it since.

 

The 390 powered Galaxie convertible sporting Keystone wheels is a nice ride.

 

Gary Formhals, the current president of the Whidbey Island model A club is doing a great job keeping the club active with many activities. His model A pickup certainly shows his enthusiasm in the quality of the restoration.

 

One of your Humble Editor’s favorite body styles. These shoebox Fords are just very classy cars.

After breaking bread with some fun loving car enthusiasts I was on my way to take care of the rest of my day in my vintage Volvo 122S wagon. Enjoying a vintage car on a two lane black top country road is one of my favorite things to do.
