I few weeks ago dragged a letterpress down to
our place on tybee island and cleaned it up and
printed a few business cards on it. Some kids
called me from St Augustine Beach and were
looking for a press. I told them to come see me
on Tybee. They drove up to Tybee and tested the
machine out. They wanted it.
So, Friday i loaded the 1000 pound machine on my
trailer, filled up with WVO and headed for
florida. I left tybee about 2.30 pm and ran
about 70 mph down I-95 in the on and off rain
with the AC ice cold. I love that R12. The last
hour or so was a downpour! After a couple of
stops, i reached St Augustine Beach about 7 pm.
We unloaded and installed the press and i was
paid and was out of there by 9 pm. I grabbed a
pizza and left St Augustine about 9.30 pm and
was back in Savannah by 12.30 pm .i ran 70 to
75 on the return trip, some rain and full AC.
It was a VERY eventful trip of about 195 miles
each way according to google. The car performed
LETTERPRESSES FOR SALE
Had someone honk at me friday and ask what year
my 81 240D is. I guess that was some form of
appreciation for the ol car and people who keep
em goin, even if they ain't purdy.
Waytago! to Rick for keepin' em running. Bob
Fiske, and Wray Sloan are proud of you fer keepin
the ol presses going.
