VIBES Gourmet Burgers” is part owned by a very good friend of ours from Gilford. Quite literally the ‘salt of the earth’. We haven’t been to Concord, atypically, in ages, so we have not had a chance as yet to try this place out. We have heard rave reviews. At a 50% discount these Burgers are at Wendy’s prices. How can YOU lose? I am dying to go and take some pictures. I really need to get out more! But please go and try them out. Cheers. If you see a General Manager named ‘Gary‘ tell him that the brown guy sent you.

This, now that I think about it, would be a GREAT PLACE for the New Hampshire Primary crowd.

It was last Thursday afternoon and I saw it as I was approaching the Alton rotary — from Rte 28 (West). It was already on the rotary. I immediately spotted the fixed, external metal visor. You don’t see those anymore. I guess they wreak havoc to the aerodynamics of a car and I can just imagine the forces exerted on it at speed. I wanted the kids to see it. I had a hunch that it would pull into McDonald’s. Took a ‘wager’ with the kids. I won. It did pull into McDonald’s. I followed it and managed to park right next to it.

Not having grown up here and with nearly all the cars in Ceylon, in my time, having been European, I don’t know much about old American cars. But, I know a cool car when I see it.

They were from Maine. I asked permission to take some pictures. Luckily Deanna had her camera on her. The driver told me it was a 1940. Wow. Even older than me. Showed the kids the visor. They, as I knew, thought it was cool. The lights at the back are so small compared to the rest of the car. Interesting. Not sure of the ‘heraldry’ on the ‘shield’ (coat of arms). Let me look it up. Wow. $250 for an emblem. OK. Found it on Wikipedia: “The Buick Trishield is rooted in the ancestral coat of arms of the automaker’s founder, David Dunbar Buick. That crest was a red shield with a checkered silver and azure diagonal line from the upper left to lower right, a stag above, and a punctured cross below. The division adopted this on its radiator grilles in 1937. In 1960, the logo underwent a major overhaul. Its single shield was replaced by a trio …” That stag is pretty stylized.

Anyway … ENJOY. Thought you might like to see the pictures. That is about all I know. Oh, I found out that the name denotes a straight 8 — like what they used on planes. Didn’t get the capacity or horsepower. Quick Google. Anything from 3L to 5L. 128hp to 168hp. Wow. We have come a long way. What does a stock 5L produce now — upwards of 350?

It was spectacular. Far exceeded expectations. So many cars. So many delightful cars. The weather was beyond perfect. The people were nice and were all having a grand time.

Lots and lots of different cars. A real trip down memory lane augmented with reminders of OUR continued GREATNESS as with the new, breathtaking Jaguar F-Type. What a beautiful car. Probably as close to perfection that you could ever achieve in a car.

Acute shortage of Spitfires. Just one Mk II. Is it really true … Have all the Spitfires rusted away? I hope not. I owned two. One red and the other pageant blue (a color I still hate).

Two Stags. Both yellow. Aaahhhh! Lots and lots of TR 6s. That might be my next purchase IF I ever have any money. There was a beautiful one, with just 9,000 miles, for sale for $21K. Wow.

A couple of Triumph GT6s. Haven’t seen one of those in decades. In the early 1970s had a friend, Dave, who owned one. He loved it. It sure was fast. But I still think it is an ugly car!

Great show. Well done. Bravo. Thank YOU.

The kids and Deanna want to go. I was ambivalent. I don’t have the money to buy one or own one, so just looking at them doesn’t do much for me. But, Devanee made a good point: ‘you know all the cars, we don’t. So we should go so we can see them’. Fair enough. I think it is free. So, weather permitting, we will go. [It is FREE, but they suggest a donation for their fundraiser.]

I am sure I will see a couple of folks that I do know. Sure, I will see a few cars that I would love to own. But, that is OK.

It should be fun. There is going to be music and food. Possibly a bagpiper.

So see you there. I am the Brown Guy with a big grin. Easy enough to spot in Wolfeboro.

For Those That Were Looking For Don Listwin, Ex-Cisco. He Is At The ‘Canary Foundation’.
