    Hey your coming to my town.

    If your coming up 71 from Cincinnati area there is some nasty lane chances and closures south of columbus just b4 the I71-I70 interchange. Pretty clear up to cleveland, slight lane shifting on 471

    Seems they are always working on that road ...

    I will be coming east along the I-80 toll road.

    It has been an interesting and busy past couple weeks ...

    I visited French Lake Auto Parts in Annandale, Minnesota
    when I dropped off a 1963 Nova Race Car Project with a trailer full of parts ...

    [​IMG]

    This is the location that Gas Monkey Garage
    found the 1969 Mustang Boss 429 at back in 2014.

    I interviewed the Family Patriarch Floyd - who started
    the three generation family owned & operated business back in 1956.

    At 87 he still works every day ...

    I took several videos of the classic car section that I posted to Facebook.

    Then I took a 1923 Model T Coupe to Bismark, Illinois.

    I interviewed Russell Potter as part of my
    Small Business Legends video series on Facebook.

    Russ has rebuilt over 6000 Model T Carburetors and is passing the torch to his son Jim.

    I post information about stuff for sale I see all across the country along with interesting places I spot while driving ...

    Then I went to pick up a 1936 Ford 3 Window Coupe that was
    chopped and rodded in the late 1940's - early 1950's.

    I got to visit a private Ford Hot Rod Collection of (50) years
    that has never been filmed for the Public.

    American Pickers repeatedly requested and were denied access.

    [​IMG]

    I took several videos of cars for sale and posted them on Facebook.

    Then I picked up a 1935 Cadillac LaSalle in Hartland, Wisconsin.

    I dropped it off to my friend Al in Medina, Ohio and took videos
    for my Small Business Legends album on Facebook.

    Al is a master wood body craftsman.

    Every vehicle I transport has a Story To Tell

    If I had to pick one image to sum up what I do - this would be it ...



    [​IMG]



    My friend Grant is behind the wheel of his newly acquired 1916 Stanley Mountain Steam Wagon.

    His friend Arthur is seated next to him - friends and neighbors help frame the moment.

    I had transported this vehicle down to Portland DMV from Anacortes, WA & back for inspection.

    In my trailer is a 1913 Stanley Mountain Steam Wagon that Grant just sold - it is headed to California.

    These would be my third and fourth Stanley Mountain Steam Wagons I was fortunate to transport.

    Grant would drive without lights to the Washington Ferry at Anacortes right after I took this shot.

    A bomb scare would delay their trip to Orcas Island where Grant owns & operates
    the only commercial tour service utilizing a Stanley Mountain Steam Wagon in North America.

    Grant & his wife Kathryn along with his Dad Kenny in Wichita, Kansas and Heather his caretaker are my friends now.

    James poses with his 1928 Willy's Overland Whippet Roadster.

    I transported it from Tacoma, Washington to Cary, North Carolina.

    I had to drive from San Jose, California up to Tacoma earlier this month to pick it up.

    This transport is my longest to date - I had to drive 4900 miles to make it happen ...

    Hi Steve ;)

    I will post the interview with your Dad when I drop off your car.

    file - 2020-01-02T064905.490.jpeg


    It had a nice ride to Gilbert with the 1927 Model T Touring I was hauling from North Carolina.


    file - 2020-01-02T064853.975.jpeg


    Dave in Gilbert had a really nice Man Cave and was nice enough to let me video it after I dropped
    off the 1927 Model T Touring .... :cool:

    I would not schedule that transport until the Spring because of the weather.
