This is what an Auburn that has been driven looks like?. I was told that the reason the L29?S are so clean on the front is that the bugs can fly out of the way. Not so, with and Auburn speedster!

Love these vintage barns!
This morning we traveled from Kansas City to Canton, IL. It was a beautiful day. Most of the day the temperature was in the mid 70?s, the sun was shining and we traveled along the secondary roads. We are nearing the end of our tour, we should be home tomorrow.

We left Canton, IL this morning: It was a cold 40 degrees and didn?t warm up quickly. The high today was 55. In an open car, that?s cold. We stayed on the secondary roads until Michigan City, IN , then we got on the major highways for the remainder of the trip home. As we got closer and closer to MI we got less amazed looks when we told them we were indeed driving the car, and more looks for being crazy people driving with the top down.
We were traveling mainly through farm country. Some of the fields were being worked up and others were planted or being planted, others had not been touched. We saw lots of grain elevators and huge farm equipment. The corn was just beginning to come up in rows. We drove past this corn field with an assortment of kids toy horses lined up along with an inchworm toy, so we inquired about it. It?s a neighborhood joke. It started with one horse and just grew into a horse farm! The inchworm inches its way forward in the line.
We got home around 6 PM tonight. We traveled a total of 3513 miles on this trip and we used 287.5 gallons of gas and got 12.4 MPG. We had a lot of head wind. Gas averaged $3.69 per gallon.
Bill, I will take a picture of the blanket as soon as I can...
