'61 Austin Healey; 1955 Pontiac (?), and San Francisco Bay

From Michael S Moore in Northern California:
"My May California visitation was taken up with contemplating the winter's crop of large paintings and forays to Brian's Salvage in American Canyon, where I found plenty of rust [and a bed for the '45 Chev] there in the salt air...

"Jeff at ABC Muffler always seems to have a wild variety of things up on the racks out East Second...

"Not to be all about gears 'n' grease, we took to the ferry for a last look at SF and lunch with Bryan, briefly in town after the Sinai [not shown]

"Finishing up with Memorial Day Weekend barbecues behind the Olde State Capitol and a surprise visit from our friend William with his oh so 'riginal '61 Healy..."

"Waiting on L's last puzzle-piece to come together;

"And a last little cruise to the jetty before mothballing the '45.

"So, next stop Sand Pass...or Hallelujah Junction...somewhere out there, anywhere...but soon."-MSM
