The parade went for almost three hours! Missed getting a shot of The Kid leading off our group in his '55 President. (sorry Bobby) Here's the rest.

Kurt--

Very nice...and I'm guessing not every make of car was quite so well-represented as Studebaker in that parade! Good show, as the Brits say. Especially like the blue '62 Lark.

I took my own Lark out to Mt.Hope airport today for the Remembrance Day service at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum. Lovely weather meant the museum's Lancaster bomber (one of two flying in the world) got airborne, overflying the museum at 11am exactly (during the piping-in of the Colours), and other ceremonies in the city soon afterward. The equally-rare Lysander flew after the ceremony was over. Turnout for the hangar ceremony was tremendous, possibly as many as three thousand individuals, many of them veterans, with surprisingly many being vets of World War II.

I had no sooner parked my Lark when a surprise glided up and parked directly behind me...a '56 President Classic, rarely-spotted car out of nearby Binbrook. Hadn't seen the owner in about two years. A '40 Ford street rod also turned up. Pix will eventually be on P'bucket...
