On Saturday, May 4th I picked up my friend Carl, and we aimed my '32 Ford Phaeton West for the 110+ mile trip to Rhinebeck, NY for the Spring Dustoff at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds. We hadn't gotten very far when the sky opened up, but we still went. It rained all the way - I should know by now to NOT listen to the weather reports.

It did clear up in the afternoon and LOTS of cars did show up, plus the swap meet had lots of interesting stuff; Carl was really happy to find of couple of parts he wanted for his '55 Chevy 4-dr. Wagon.

Dennis Gage was a special feature at the show: the Back to the Future Delorien, the Flintstone Car and the Christine horror car were featured also. Walked our legs off and then headed out to have supper on our way home; unfortunately for me the sky opened up again and we went about 25 miles on the Mass Turnpike in a torrential downpour. Looks like I'll be cleaning up my Phaeton for a couple of weeks, but like my Wife told me, at our age you need to enjoy it and drive it all you can, and so I did.
