Automotive Present Pictures: Wings N Wheels Protection From Our Pal Doug Gregory
(Phrases and Pictures by Doug Gregory) Been some time since I’ve wrote a lot of something so bear with me as I attempt to get going once more. The Harrison County Airport in Cynthiana, KY has hosted a cruise-in/fly-in for some years now and the 2022 occasion noticed an important turnout of equipment and humanity. We stopped in for just a few hours on our approach to Edgewater Sports activities Park to catch the Straight-Axle Mafia working up there (extra on that sooner or later).
We acquired there a bit after it opened and it was already in full swing with plane touchdown and taking off in pretty common intervals throughout our keep. The airport is a superb setting for an occasion like this. Any sort of car is welcome so farm equipment, ATVs, muscle vehicles, classics, and trendy stuff has been a part of the combo since its inception. For me seeing shaft-drive driving mowers and three-wheelers was a giant throwback. I had forgotten that stuff ever existed, however I now keep in mind again once they have been first launched. I didn’t recall ever seeing an Allis-Chalmers rear-engine cultivator or plow and I grew up in North-central Oklahoma the place vintage farm equipment reveals are virtually a weekly prevalence. Seemingly it was a youthful oversight as a result of dang…in my more-experienced years lately I have a tendency to take a look at something totally different and attention-grabbing.
Lastly, I’m blissful to report the Avanti remains to be Studebaker-powered and the homeowners are fairly energetic amongst different connoisseurs of the orphan clan. Benefit from the pictures and search for half 2 from this occasion.
