Yaaaay!! The October issue of The Carriage Journal is finished.

As I think I may’ve mentioned earlier, one of the articles coming up in this issue is on the carriage collection owned by the DeHaans, CAA members in Michigan.

I traveled up to Michigan last month to talk with them about their collection and to photograph it. I was also delighted to learn that Dale has a few 1929 Fords (a pickup truck, a sedan, and a convertible roadster with a rumble seat) and two vintage John Deere tractors. As you know if you’ve been reading this blog for a while, I adore old cars, so I had fun photographing all five of these slightly newer specimens of antique and vintage horsepower.

Here, first, are a few close-up shots of the Fords …

Tomorrow, I’ll share a couple of photos of the two tractors.
