Sarasota Car Museum & Troyer's Restaurant

We arrived all in one rubber banding caravan. That goodness the SCA Caravan had maps and all of us knew exactly how to get there. The lights on 41 were brutal to our group's integrity.

George & Tom talked about the route.

Liz gets in the very first automobile and the oldest corvette known to man!

Thank you Phillip!
