Smile Tucker Day Photos

Here's some pictures I thought I'd share from a ride we took today in the '53 443 (aka Miss Stella).

Mt Zion Road north of Leadville, CO - Great views of Mt Elbert, MT Massive, and the Chicago Ridge behind Ski Cooper Ski Area - went up to 12,000 ft.

Enjoy,
Mark

PS MtnTrack if your out there - she's running great!

The visor came off a '53 Dodge Saratoga as part of Mtn-Tracks restoration - does look like it belongs there.

I couldn't have hoped for a better home for her. She's definitely in her natural element! Thanks for posting some more beautiful photo's!

Here's some pics from the previous week. We drove a 26 mile loop around Turquoise Lake near Leadville, CO. The light was flat so I did some "creative editing".

Thanks for all the great comments!

Mrs Grouser (aka Loose Sprocket) just got a fancy new Lumix Camera so we'll try to get some videos soon. I haven't been able to get the cat out much lately, work has got me buried with World Championship ski races and associated events at Vail.

My wife and i took a drive up through aspen through leadville and as we went through redcliff we stopped in Redcliff and visited with Mr. and Mrs. Broken Grouser. It was great to meet them and see their Tucker in person.
