Reminiscing about old cars and Flint

Jul 17, 2012

 

The annual Wheels of Grand Haven Car Show typically brings between 200 and 300 cars to town, ranging from century-old to rare ones of the modern era.

In his blog, "Burping Canary Feathers," former longtime Muskegon radio announcer Clif Martin began reminiscing about old cars and Flint. He recalls leaving that Michigan city for good with his young family in 1954 in a Buick Dynaflow (see photo).

"What started all this reminiscing is a 1924 or '25 Durant auto in the shop of friend Phil Schugars," Martin writes. "He's a fine professional restorer of antique cars and lots of other things. The car was built in Kalamazoo and originally sold at a dealership here in Muskegon. There were some cars bearing the Flint name, but I have yet to see one."

How I love those old time cars. They look nothing like the ones we have right now. Did you mention flint? I saw an old car like that near a scrapyard here in my place. They were selling it up as a whole or by piece resulting to an easy discounted parts sale. How I wish people were more into car restoration projects.
