We had a fantastic road trip to visit our friends at Gritty McDuff's in Freeport today! Lots of lunch patrons got to check out the 1957 Ford Thunderbird and enter to win a drawing for a 1941 Stearman biplane ride or a pair of tickets to the Barnstormers Ball on August 23 (Gritty's beer will be among the fantastic libations served during this gala event)! The lucky winner of this drawing will be notified this weekend. Thanks to all who stopped by to say hello and to Gritty's for their enthusiastic support of OHTM! It's always fun to see all of the smiles from passerby when we're out and about in one of our collection vehicles.
