Whew.....that's A LOT of super nice people in one place on one day!
And now for some photos. . . .
This couple from Lexington, North Carolina has built a reproduction filling station which is chock full of petrolania memorabilia. I was privileged to see photos of their place and frankly I'm a little bit jealous!
Also, some fun cars came to visit.
Check out this pretty blue '37 La Salle from Eau Claire, Wisconsin. You don't see many of those around any more!
A father and son from Corona, California are traveling across Route 66 in this '63 Falcon, and they're proud of both their car and their adventure.
In other Afton news. . . a new church has been established in Afton, a "cowboy church". I'd never heard this term until I moved to Oklahoma, but I'm told it's simply a church that would appeal to cowboys. We passed the church on the way into Afton this morning and, sure enough, there was a handful of cowboys sitting on folding chairs outside. We were early, so I feel sure that more cowboys joined them later.
