Francis invited me to ride along on the Upper Midwest Region Classic Car Club of America’s Spring Garage Tour. Unfortunately, Francis was unable to make it, so I went and took pictures for him. The tour started in Hastings, Minnesota and ventured east into Wisconsin. The day started out sunny, but got cloudier as the day progressed. Still a nice day and good for avoiding shadows on outdoor shots. Even though I was busy taking pictures, I had a chance to talk to a lot of nice people and see some very amazing cars. Taking pictures on a garage tour is always a little frustrating. You get to see these beautiful cars, but usually a garage setting is too tight to get nice pictures. The route was beautiful, but I had a few missed turns primarily because Wisconsin’s road marking methods are a little different than what I am used to in Minnesota. It was a great day and I would like to shout out a big “THANK YOU!” to the hosts that opened up their garages and to event coordinators that put the whole thing together. ******************************************************************************* Click here for more car pictures at my Flickr site.
