Sunday on the Sherm’s Tour

Our Sunday’s drivers meeting was at 8am at the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel in Fountain City near Huntington Beach. The hotel had arranged a special parking area for the tour participant vehicles. After the brief meeting it was a short drive to the Million Dollar Breakfast Cruise in Tustin. This event takes place the first and last Sunday of every month. We arrived with our group of 60 vehicles and found a special parking area waiting for us at the Enderle Center where the cruise is held.
There was a good selection of vehicles on hand and our group definitely fit in well. By 10am the cruise was winding down. Our Road Tour group was given special recognition with a number of Road Tourians receiving plaques. Fred Ruth from our group won Best in Show with his bright red 33 Ford Factory Five Racing Hot Rod and matching trailer. It was a fun morning in Tustin.
Our destination at three o’clock was the Craftsmanship Museum in Carlsbad near San Diego. I had been told about the museum by a number of Road Tourians who lived in the area. It turned out to be a fantastic stop. The museum contains an amazing number of miniatures handcrafted by some very talented craftsmen. The displays ranged from small scale engines and replica airplane engines. They were all functional and able to be stated and run. The tiniest functioning gun any of us had ever seen was on display. We were greeted by museum director Craig Libuse. Also on hand for our visit was museum founder and main benefactor Joe Martin. It is a fantastic display of miniature engineering at the Craftsmanship Museum and well worth a visit.
It was a short drive to our hotel in Escondido. It was another good day on the Sherm’s Custom Plating Tour.
