Default Canada Day Car Show

I was the only flathead Ford rep at the local Canada day car show today. Not a big show but good turnout for a small town. The old Merc ran fast and smooth at 60+ and what a treat to get on smooth pavement for a change. Not too hot for the drive but by the time the parade was starting I decided not to push my luck and have it overheat in the slow stop and go driving. Took lots of car pictures and videos but my old Merc only showed up in one of them.

Thanks Mark. Yes, my nephew drives the Chevy II whenever we get to a show. Good to have a "support vehicle" along although the Merc performed flawlessly. Hoping to get some video of the show and drive on my channel soon.
