XKE, 1938 Ford Woody, & Schooners

There are always interesting machines out at Affordable Performance, Sean McKay's car shop on Naskeag Road in Brooklin, Maine.

           Don't know what the XKE is in for, but it looked pretty healthy.
           We caught this 1937--guessing-- Ford wagon...and then our camera battery died. We'll head back out Naskeag Road for more, later.

       Speaking of beautiful machines, and Naskeag Point, we went out sailing Eggemoggin Reach and spied a schooner speeding on the first big NW winds of late summer.

          Ho-hum. Another day in Maine.

  1. That shop did an amazing job getting me back on the road with my 72 BMW. I think the XKE is having a conversion over to a 350.
