The Watson always fit in (the style their cloths) on all our tours

Some people can always find the right place to be

Some of the places we toured at the 1998 Trek

Carl Barker this years auctioneer finds some one to give him money for this great master piece

Look who Carl found to buy the master piece - Dick Mc Knight who is trying to get his money

It looks like Carl Barker is trying to get Conrar, John and others to bid on what, looks like his lunch

Looking at the Caz campus from the plating of some Franklins

Pictures of some of the early Franklin items

Lights on early Franklins

Why do Franklin members come to the Trek, to drive their Franklins to eat.........

These are all Franklins in this line, as far as you can see.

After the 1000 Island tour we stopped at the boat Museum, these are just a few of the 100's of boats and motors they had on display

It looks like Garnet Hantak is not too happy about the boat ride. Even Marlene Zimmerman had to move over the give Garnet room just in case she started to turn green. Garnet did make it with out getting sick.

We want to thank Dick Gaskill for all the pictures he sent to your WebMaster of the 1998 Franklin Trek. If you don't know Dick, he has been the the photographer for Michigan Band for years. He also takes all the pictures at the Rose Bowl each year (they play there) After years on looking for his Grandmas 1929 Franklin, Dick found it and the Franklin is now home again with the Gaskills. Again, I would like to take my Franklin hat off to Dick for all his help, thanks.....
