Sedgwick Car Show
Seventy degree temperatures and a slight breeze provided the perfect weather for the 2018 Sedgwick Car Show, held at the Blue Hill Fairgrounds on Saturday, July 7. Spectators walked the fairgrounds to view well known and rare models of cars and trucks.
30 Years in a Barn
Yvan Dupuy of South Blue Hill did 50 percent of the work on his 1962 Triumph TR-4. The vehicle, which sat in a barn for 30 years, came from Phoenix, Ariz. Dupuy worked on the engine block, replaced hoses and did the engine bay restoration. The car has its original engine, chrome, bumper and wiring harness.
A 1929 Mercedes Replica
Chris Kravitt of Waltham shows his “Kit Car,” a replica of a 1929 Mercedes SSK. Kravitt says this car was designed to use a 1972 Ford Pinto engine.
Used at Pearl Harbor
Robert and Marilyn Croul stand next to their 1936 Ford Woody Wagon, Model 68790. This vehicle, which the Crouls have owned for two years is all original. The first owner, a U.S. Navy captain in Hawaii, purchased it in 1935 and owned it until 2001. The Navy captain used it to evacuate injured victims during the attack on Pearl Harbor. The vehicle was sold in 2001 and restored in California and Pennsylvania.
