Sunshine and Hot Rods

My final day in Cedar Rapids was pretty much one of relaxation, as all the goals I had for the visit vis-a-vie the exhibit The Tool Cabinet and Workbench of Henry O. Studley were met.

After that we went to a huge yard sale with tons of tools, none of which tempted me, and finished off the evening dining on Mexican food.



Thanks to the fantastic contacts the Abrahams have in their home town, the visit was about as perfect and productive as it could be
