July 24 – Now THIS is tailgating. Beth and I went to Skip’s Drive-in in Merrimac for their annual Mega-Cruise. There were over 550 cars in attendance, which is actually down from last year’s total. It’s still amazing to see, and a great time for the price of a burger and fries.
Beth is definitely our kid. She gravitates toward the 60’s muscle cars, although this was her favorite:
My favorite was this 1964 Ford Econoline Travel-Wagon. It has a 170 cid engine between the seats, and a hammock inside the dome. Forward control, three-on-the-tree, very rare, and very cool.
