Figured since it was 77 degrees today it would be a good time to take a ride in the '20 runabout, as all the other babies are nestled in bed for the winter, on "storage insurance" but not this car. Took a ride down memory lane to what's referred to as the "Old Bay Bridge" on Sandusky Bay.


Walking past the gates, towards where the old bridge once stood. It's now used for gawking or fishing.



Here's a picture of the old bridge. The "white mass" at the top was the huge cement counter-weights that lifted the roadway. This was one spooky bridge, believe me. But at the time, it was about the only easy way to get to the Marblehead Peninsula where Grandpa had his trailer on a nice water canal.



And this is now the "Edison Bridge", which took the old bridge's place, named of course after Thomas Edison, born nearby in Milan Ohio. It's a part of Route 2. Not nearly as neat looking, nor as spooky, but when the wind whips up big time off the bay, it can be a bit intimidating to a high profile vehicle.

I agree just got home . The wife and I enjoyed a nice drive under the stars after going to town for supper. No top for RPU so seeing stars was no problem. Nice pics Tim , to bad we don't live closer. The only guy I know around here with a T is too busy to get the motor back in it.
Drive safe and often

Thanks Y'all! Dallas, agree too bad you & Tom aren't closer too. We'd be trampsing around almost daily if you were! Been a great season, put about 1600 miles on Pete and 1100 miles on Clarabelle. The other two cars just got a "smidge" that's why it was good to get out on the '20 again. She is a good little runner!
Jeff, well, as for "Go Tribe"...well, they went already didn't they? LOL..what an exciting series, but I did bring out a dinner plate just in case!! Ha ha.

It was a great day for driving. Kim, Cosmo and I treaked to Noah Stutzman's to drop off the wheels for the R and picked up the rebuilt ones for the pickup. He showed me how he forms the wood fellows and I learned that all his power tools are run by hydraulics. He uses a gasoline engine to run a big pump and has hoses run to everything. Very interesting.

By the way, I have used two different GPSs and they will only get you close to his address. Once you find CR 12 you are on your own.
