Historic Cars at the Parish House Inn, an Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area bed and breakfast

This was such a fun group Ford Model A car  enthusiasts who stayed at the Parish House Inn. They  visited the Auto Museum, Firehouse Museum and had dinner at the Sidetrack Grill and Bar. Driving from Cinncinnati in 90 degree weather and their plans include  several more days of sightseeing here in Michigan and Ohio on their way back home. The central air-conditioning and iced Tea was greatly appreciated by all. Tomorrow they will visit the Jiffy Mix plant in Chelsea and then on to the Lansing area. How would a trip of several days in a car without air conditioning work for anyone today? I wonder.  They are a fun group and obviously the adventurist types and it was great meeting them and finding out about this passion which they all share.
