A blog about my the history, acquisition and operation of my 1911 Model 62 Stanley Steamer.

Back down the Road

Well it has been a long winter off the road but we flashed the the Stanley up this morning and with a few minor adjustments had her steaming down the road. We clocked about 40 miles and it rained so hard that I was sitting in a puddle of water even though the roof was up but all things considered the Stanley ran like a top. 

 The last time the Stanley was out was my wedding in August. Life has been busy since this momentous occasion so I haven't been in the garage as often as usual. It was on display with our 1912 Oakland Model 40 and 1911 RHD Model T Touring. The venue lent itself to beautiful photography, some of which I have included below.
