Summertime Photos: Swinging by Milford

Now comes the time on the ol' Patio Boat where I try to post a bunch of photos from the summertime, so that the non-Facebookers can see what we've been up to. A more disciplined blogger would probably do this regularly in something resembling temporal order.

You're stuck with me. So we'll start with today's expedition, a couple photos from the Milford Memories festival in downtown Milford, then a bunch of photos as the men among us made a very manly stop at the weekly Sunday Cruise at Baker's Restaurant on Milford Rd.

The shopping expedition is launched.

The shopping expedition needs to be refueled.

After that John, Henry, Malcolm, and Cledo headed to Baker's Sunday Cruise to look at a few cool cars.

Big Smokey is in the house.

Cledo approves of this Pontiac GTO.

Gran Torino.

Jaguar E-Type.

VW Bus.

Cledo with a classic Chevy.

Ford Bus.

The owner of this Gran Torino was very nice and let us have a few photo ops:

Then Henry tried to drive the car and smashed into everything. Very sad.

Chevy jet-style hood ornament.

Ford Thunderbird.

1978 Chevy Corvette Pace Car Edition (left) and a 1994 Corvette.

The French inspection ranged far afield.

Henry approves of this Mustang.

John fondly remembering his own rustbucket of an International Scout.

Cledo approves of this 'Cuda.

However, he has distinct doubts about the bumpers on this 1975 Bricklin.

This 1967 Avenger-GT Electric Vehicle is a modern electric sports car built out of a 1960s fiberglass kit car. You can learn more about it at its web site: The Avenger-GT EV:

And finally, a very tasty Chevy El Camino.

Monique doesn't approve of the El Camino's mix of car and pickup truck. ("They took a perfectly nice car and did that to it?!") But how can you not think this is tasty?
