A couple more showing the lot adjacent to the Lemay auto museum in Tacoma, and a FL era Fargo pickup.
I happened to be returning to Texas when the eclipse occurred and was about forty miles north of the total eclipse. Within a few minutes the people who had travelled to the area were heading back north. The traffic jam was about 30 miles long in both northbound lanes. I was told that the same situation formed on roads leading south.
I have to apologize for not having more photos to post. The little Canon pocket camera is fickle and will work fine for a half-dozen shots and then, without making a single change in the settings it will leave a blurry mess for the next half-dozen. That happened to most of my Denver pictures. My ten-year-old Sony died and I should have replaced it with another of the same kind, but hind sight is 20-20.

Glad to have it in occur my town, though I only took a few photos; not framed well-enough to post. But I was also really fascinated by the real 70 Hurst ccnvertible and its provenance. I'll catch you next time around, Gary. Keep us posted on your project!
Oh - we had clear sailing all the way down into central Oregon for a spectacular eclipse. It did take us many hours to get back across the bridge to the Tri-Cities where we stayed.
