Cruising

My wife & I were visiting with friends in Leavenworth, WA today. After having a nice dinner and conversation, we exited the restaurant to find a 1957 Ford Hardtop Convertible parked right next to the entrance. The four of us, all being of the age that the car was new during our high school years, were all looking the car over when the owner exited and found us admiring his car. He promptly accommodated us by lowering the top to let us admire even further. After a while he offered to take us for a cruise of the little Bavarian inspired town. Of course, we accepted and spent the next half hour cruising with him. Awesome!!!!

Forgot to add.... He's Ken Komro from Cashmere. I think he said he's had the car for 30+ years and has put over 100k on it. When he and his wife left us, he was cruising onto Front St. again.
