I also slapped a for sale sign on the car. I figured if there was a place to get some exposure, it was at a car show. I simply don't have time for this car, nor am I a hard-core Rambler/AMC guy. I've always wanted a classic car, and in a long sort of way, just kind of came into this car. After 3 years of not driving it enough, I thought I'd see if there was some interest out there. So far there's a bit. I think I'm gong to need to find someone who absolutely loves Ramblers and is looking specifically for a Marlin. There are less than 6000 of them still around today, so it's not like an old impala or something.
I ended up parking my car, walking around and checking out the others, and then took the boys fishing. The show was in a park in Strathmore that has a lake that is stocked with trout. We didnt' catch anything, but we had fun.
Sunday after church we headed to the Sun and Salsa festival as I mentioned earlier. Great weather. Hot, hot and not a cloud in the sky. Heaps of great Salsa to be had, unfortunately, we didn't get too much tasting in. The crowds were insane, and I really, really hate large crowds of people. That has something to do with our decision to move to a town of around 300 people. Not many large crowds where I'm from.
own Salsa. I hope to give round 1 a go the next evening or so.
Drove the Marlin to work again this morning and man does this thing get attention. A quick stop at Tim Hortons can turn into a mini history lesson in American Automobile History very quickly. And it's not my doing. I just answer the questions that are thrown out there. Good fun though.
BTW, the trunk would fit a Tikit quite nicely.
