Default Independence Day

I'm tired of the negatives I am looking for the positives. Let's drive our A's and/or display them at your home. Add an American flag and post a picture. If you see an A on the road honk like hell. Here is to God, country, and family.

Woody SiD will not be able to cruise this coming Fourth due to a broke leg. She is undergoing a rear end rebuild this weekend due to some wierd cliking noise. She will be "back on the road again" by next week. Meantime the rest of the family will certainly celebrate the birth of this great nation. Ya'll have a HAPPY FOURTH, too.

That is a good idea! I will try and get Barb out to stretch her legs around town in between spraying paint.

We had a “come as you are” parade too. It was nice to get out of the house.

The AACA affiliate that I belong to planned an unofficial parade and was joined by a couple other car clubs. Only 2 Model As, but we had a total of 27 cars altogether. This picture was in the Anchorage Daily News. That is my pickup leading the pack, sporting the US Flag.

Our county Independence Day parade was cancelled, so our Model A club made our own parade. 18 Model A's all decorated. Here's a video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5L_apkEwKPQ

Had to edit out people/faces because we couldn't get waivers, but there were CROWDS waiting for the Model A's to go by.
