Default Summer of Fun

Since most of us tend to post pics to social media instead of here, I thought I would put together a little recap of this past summer with the M715 and M725 from shows and parades. This will be full of pics, so sit back and enjoy, and feel free to post up pics of your vehicles from this year!

The year started with this awesome pic that was made for my by a local professional photographer. It's a style called "light painting".


The beginning of summer means getting everything out from the garages for warm ups and to check them out.


Memorial Day parade is the typical kick off for the season here around northern Michigan.




Follow shortly there after by a parade in early June for a local festival.


Parade selfie with my side kick and several local vets.

Next we packed up and headed to Louisville for the MVPA Nationals, where I met up with several Zoners and had fun.



And I filmed a segment with Bob Redfern for Military Collector TV


While at the show I upgraded my M2 to a new full metal one, complete with propane sim-fire.



4th of July brought another parade, this time in Ludington pulling a float for the dance school my daughter dances for.

July brings several area car shows like this one in Hart, MI. where I won a trophy with both the M715 and M725




A favorite show is at the Golden Sands Golf Course, When else are you going to get to drive on a golf course without getting yelled at.

August brings Homecoming in Pent-Water, MI and another parade.






Plus the beautiful weather brings plenty of opportunity to just plain cruise, as I live in a huge tourist area and it's fun just to show the trucks off.

Playing around adding some camo netting to hang off the troop seats.

Sunsets here are the best! Looking out at the Silver Lake Sand Dunes.

As summer comes to an end, it's always nice when we get a shot of nice weather and I can get the Trucks out for some cruising fun.




With one last car show of the season coming up this weekend in Pent-Water and the forecast showing the temps to drop down into the low 50's or upper 40's, means that it is the least favorite time of the year for me. Time to put the top back on, as the end of topless summer cruising is over.




I hope everyone has enjoyed this look back at summer fun and post up any of your M-series pics from this past year.

Very, very nice Dave.
Thanks for the pictures.

As for myself, Memorial Day Parade and Service went great with nice weather that morning.
Pulled the two jeeps into the garage that day after the parade, and haven't drove them since

We have had one of the wettest summers that I can ever remember.

So, the jeeps have spent the entire summer in the garage with a dehumidifier running.

Dan, you need to find the time to get them out for a nice fall drive to check out the fall colors before winter sets in!
