The second show of my triple-header on July 1 was Granum where they held a well-organized and first-class event. In addition to the cars, I enjoyed seeing the vintage farm machinery and the old jail. The show ended with a parade of the cars around town which gave me a second opportunity to snap photos.
As a history buff, I enjoyed a tour of the museum and seeing the authentic nineteenth century jail. The jail’s menu reminded me of the old days on the farm where we used to refer to the noon meal as dinner(but we had better food!).
My greatest discovery was the new restaurant on main street, The Country Stop. Sabina has refurbished an old brick building and turned it into a fine dining establishment. She even retained a partial stamped-tin ceiling to lend some roaring twenties ambience to the place. The food was delicious and the people were friendly.
As is always the case at a small town car show, I saw some vehicles for the first time including Ken’s spectacular 63 Buick LeSabre convertible.
