Default Evening Drive Video

Some video shot on the recent evening drive to town in the 52 Merc. Unfortunately I didn't get any "in town" shots so guess I'll have to make another trip for those. :-)

Thanks Ralph. that was most enjoyable. I don't think you could get a bigger contrast between your and mine drive from home videos. Only the flatty V8 is common. The big car just soaks up those unpaved roads.

Hi Mart. I'm actually a little envious of your smooth pavement drives but I'd be lost when I came to one of those "roundabouts" you drive through. All I had to watch out for here was wildlife.

Thanks for the ride, too bad about the lost footage, that's always frustrating. I had my 49 F1 and was going to record my trip but forgot to charge it.
I love to see the sites and sounds.

Thats a nice little red truck Art. It would be an F47 here in Canada. Have you done any videos of it?

Very nice Art. You have a real nice couple of Fords there. And workshop too. Nice change looking through a windshield that isn't pitted and stone chipped like most of mine.

Thanks Ralph, I wish more on the Barn would post videos. I think my favorite video of Mart's is the hill climb with his A-V8 roadster.

Art....That little A-bone gets on down the road quite respectably. Nice car, and nice PLACE, too! DD

Ralph,
Thanks for taking us along in your Merc. Those dirt roads were icing on the cake!
