ACD Festival

For 18 of Henry's twenty-two years we have made the trip to Auburn, IN to attend the Auburn, Cord, Duesenberg Festival. It's one of the largest classic car auctions in the country. You see people from all walks of life looking at cars, watching the bidding, coveting, reliving moments of our lives. It's a guy thing - we can remember events in our lives by the cars we were driving at the time etc. Cars kids were driving when I was in high school [Nova SS] are now classics! Hank hasn't been able to come to the festival the last few years but this year he came home for the Labor Day weekend to take in the festival with his friend Andrew. I was invited to tag along.

The Cadilac XLR says "drive me home" oh, my but not the kind of ride for clergy.

The bid for this 1957 Austin Cambrian Four Door Sedan went for $4,600 Hank thinks we should have bid on it. Oh well, after he's done with school, has a steady job and a small amount of savings he can bid all he wants. Until then he'll make due with a 2001 Dodge Neon with 150,000 miles...
