We arrived at Dragone Classic Motorcars in Bridgeport, CT on Monday to check on our 1907 Model G White Steamer's restoration. The car is progressing well and looking great. The hood, fenders and condenser are all painted and ready to go onto the car, the new top looks fantastic, as does the new windshield. The wheels are freshly painted and new white tires have been installed. The last of the steam plumbing is being done at this time and Dragone hopes to have the car ready to ship within the next couple weeks.
As you can see, this is a very large car. Even though it is sitting on stands that put the tires a couple inches off of the ground, it's still very tall, and I cannot begin to reach the top of the car. We met with Manny and George Dragone yesterday to discuss the cars and shipping. Next we were given a tour of the facility by George, to include the upholstery shop and both warehouses where they store the excess inventory. We looked at vintage bicycles, and lots of misc items of interest. We were joined by Brian and Christine Williams out of Long Island NY for the day, which included a trip to look at the Biondi collection, but that's another story. The White will make a great addition to the museum and we look forward being able to run it next spring.
