It's usually inside, but I had it at my summer place for a couple of days.

Unfortunately, the trees were in rut then.

They announced 10,630 registrations. Down from 2019 due to those that are still cautious and those from across the border in Canada that were unable to attend.
Also saw a new trend in powering a reproduction 1932 Ford roadster. Someone has taken a Harley Davidson v-2 and installed it. It does have more horsepower than the original flathead.

I saw that V-2 roadster. It was weird but interesting. I also saw a old British MG (?) roadster with a Ford 60hp flathead for power. The little flattie really fit that car nicely. Don't know why I didn't take a photo.

I think my Merc was the only flathead powered Ford at the show yesterday.
