March road trip info, 03MGM, Buicks, Dodge

Recommended Posts

*
If you would like to meet up while I am in the southwest US (including portions of Route 66) in March, check out the ROUGH itinerary here:
http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2017/03/05/road-trips-working-5/

 

I will post itineraries for April (southeast US), May (northwest US) & June (northeast US) later.

 

FYI: the above post has links to the 4 entries I wrote for the mini road trip test (Sunday, 02/26/2017, to Friday, 03/03/2017) between western IL & central MI. Those entries include an overview of my 1st 4 road trips in 2017, pics of my 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis (with side window deflectors installed & a gripe about the steering wheel controls), exploring Okemos MI &, of course, some of my thoughts.  03MGM SIDE NOTE: a couple weeks ago, I ordered & then received the sales brochure for it; I love having documentation like that for cars I own or have owned!

Cort, that's an interesting and very unusual bridge

you pictured.  Bridges and roads are just as much

a part of the historic landscape as old cars.

 

Bridges need preservation, too, but I think they are

little recognized.  They are therefore being lost.

Highway departments tear down old steel-truss

bridges routinely and replace them with their

newer nondescript models.

 

Thank you for sharing the pictures.
