An excellent article from Kurt Ernst at Hemmings

Up for auction is the mobile base of travelling marine supply salesman J.M. Keely.

The rig consists of a 1931 Ford Model A De Luxe Coupe and custom trailer

This is a fascinating glimpse into the past and the life of a travelling salesman, I’m assuming he wasn’t ever in a hurry? 🙂

Took the A along to the inaugural Wellington Country Park Farm Shop Car Rally.

For a new show the turn out was excellent, good American car turn out.

A number of A’s were present including one I hadn’t seen before and is amazingly local!

John Cochran’s truck was also present, after he and Meg had taken a long trip to the Goodwood Revival (110 miles :))

Seeing in the New Year at the Phoenix Inn Hartley Wintney

Took a drive over to Hartley Wintney for the New Years Day meet at the Phoenix Inn, pretty well attended considering the weather wasn’t great. A good smattering of American cars, along with coffee and some decent grub was on offer!

Some nice vehicles included:

Hudson Super Six

Chrysler New Yorker

Ford Ranchero

Model A Coupe & Roadster

Mustangs

Plus a really cool Mercedes Hot Rod, not my normal thing, but very nice..
