Our stay at Freddy's is winding down. We went on an antiquing jaunt yesterday, drove down US 1 to Owls Head, visited the transportation museum, shopped a bit at their swap meet/store. The day before, Friday, Freddy finished a 'tune-up' on the convertible top of the Pierce Arrow, it needed new padded bolsters, and new wrapping around the wood top bows. Some fasteners were loose, those were epoxied in, a few fasteners replaced too.
Then we stretched the top and webbing, Freddy tacked it down and it looks GREAT!
We then took the car south to Fred's brother's house, just north of Ellsworth, and on down highway 3 to Mount Desert Island, we went to the Seal Cove auto Museum, then around to Seal Harbor for a wonderful dinner, that 's where Fred took the photo of the car in front of the Lighthouse Inn.
We drove through the Acadia National Park on the way back north, there was virtually NO traffic in the park, a VERY nice drive, especially with the poor headlights on the old Pierce. When we get back home, I'll put in my 6v Halogen bulbs, they work much better.
Tonight, Sunday night, we are driving modern back down to the island, and going for a boat ride around some of the small inlets, then off to Cranberry Island for a fancy dinner. This is with the daughter of the now deceased owner of the Seal Cove Auto collection and museum.
On Monday, we will head south, back to Newburyport, stay a night we think, then head west.. I think Freetown Fred might have a visitor next week for a day !
Take care everyone,
