Historical Society's 16th Annual Father's Day Breakfast Car Show

by Paul Saulnier
June 22, 2018

This event gets better every year. The grounds were full by 8:30 so late arrivals parked on Washington Street.

This year four new sponsors lent their name and support to the breakfast cruise: Authentic Auto Body, Hometown Automotive & Autosales and Sales, Roadmaster Sales and Service and Kidde-Fenwal in addtion to our faithful return sponsors: Corcoran & Havlin Insurance Group/Hagerty, Quality Auto Body, Keystone Automotive and Rose's Automotive.

The event provides an opportunty to catch up with freinds as Tom Chipman, above left, and Steve Bradford are doing. Steve provided the PA system for the event again this year.

The Saulnier cousins brought the Volvo they were raised in when Deda bought it new 50 years ago.

Breakfast was ready early this year in anticipation of higher attendance with the new sponsors. By 10:00 AM it was time for the sponsors to announce their selections from among the 130 cars and trucks on and around the grounds.

Jack Keefe, above left, picked this beautiful and rare 1934 Oldsmobile as President's Choice for Corcoran & Havlin/Hagerty Insurance.

Quality Auto Body's president Gary D'Alessandro, above left with the mike, awarded his trophy to the 1967 T Bird pictured below because it was the car he most wanted to drive home from the show.

Ron Grey, above center, wearing the cool shades, picked this 1966 Corvette dressed in a very rare color for Keystone Automotive's award. Ron did not know it belongs to Jack Keefe as the window signs do not include names of owners. Jack is known in the hobby for his Austin Healeys, not Corvettes.

Steve and Gabriella Proia make their award a family affair as they presented the Authentic Auto Body trophy to the owner of  this rare 1954 Packard convertible.

Gebee Costa chose a 1968 Red Dodge Charger for the Hometown Autobody and Sales Trophy. Unfortunately we did not get a picture of it.

The Kidde Fenwal/American Cancer Society trophy went to this 1959 Corvette pictured below. Peter Kamitian, in the black shirt, announced the winner selected with the help of Michele and Alison Rose.

Roadmaster Sales and Service President Pat Ditucci, above left, selected a very nice 1954 Chevy Stepside Pickup.

Above left Charlie Harris, whose own show, Medfield on the Charles is on June 24th, attracts about a thousand vehicles, selected this fabulous 1967 Lincoln convertible, previously owned by Manny Ramerez.

Rose's Automotive sponsors the Unsung Hero Award given to the person who works on his ride year after year keeping it running and looking good. Last year's winner, with his daughter presented the award to this 1970 Chevy Nova

As is the custom with this show, the Historical Society's past president makes the selection. This year Judy Grosjean selected a beautiful example of "high society" in the form of a 1947 Bentley. The Bently finished third in its class at Pebble Beach.

This year's 50/50 raffle collected $500 of which $250 went to this gentleman in the white shirt.

On behalf of the Holliston Historical Society, I want to thank all our sponsons, volunteers and attendees for making this year's show the best ever and helping to ensure the work of the society in preserving Holliston's history.

A Door is the Real Window to the Soul of a Building

For me doors can be a work of art. There is a poster of interesting Holliston doors available at Fiske's created by local artist Beth Hoffer. While on a trip to England, I kept an eye out for interesting doors. I found some doors which are truly works of art, many of which have stood the test of time and looked better because of it..
