Fabulous Fords, perfect Pontiacs, curvy Corvettes, and dream cars and trucks of all eras and styles lined up at Hugo’s Bar in Brimson this past Saturday. I strolled slowly between them all, stopping to take a picture of the bright red ’66 Mustang for my dad. I stopped again for a picture of a sleek, black Ford Ranger for my husband (which I sent, via text, accompanied with a line from a Ford Ranger related tune going around on TikTok). If I would’ve had my pick of any to drive home, the GTO would’ve been good-to-go.
An old Bronco was getting a lot of attention with heads tucked un-der the hood. Folks were gathered around in lawn chairs chatting, catching up with old friends and making new ones. The Split-Rox Acoustic Project filled the air with folk songs and soft rock, adding to the laid-back atmosphere of those gathered to celebrate the love of motor vehicles and good company.
I had, unfortunately, not been present when the tractor parade had headed out to take their tour. When they returned, I was John Deere green with envy I hadn’t been part of the fun. Kids and adults alike smiled and waved, tossing the final bits of candy out to those who awaited their return. It was a good day for a ride!
