Cherry Parade w/ one Durant and one Star

Saturday Dennis Murphy and I drove our cars in the San Leandro Cherry Parade.
We were invited by the Durant Task Force a community organization of people that live on Durant street alongside the Oakland Durant factory. The Durant water tower is their logo.

Afterwards we drove our cars back to the factory for the first time in 85 years for my Durant and 89 years for Dennis's Star.

Rick.
Thanks so so much for that great picture in front of the main entrance to the old restored Oakland Durant factory to the administration building where we had a great fun "Return to the Factory" natl meet there. Still have chills from driving my 29 Durant model 6-66 onto that property where my car was built and those roaring 20's gals you had show up and great us. Was a blast. And yes Bill your beautiful A-22 maroon touring car was our centerfold car there. Rick you need to put that picture on the front page of our Durant club web site and Durant's name shows very well in your great picture. Sure proud of the new Durant Factory owners for being so caring on restoring our huge great Oakland Durant factory. When I talked to the company president he assured us that the history of Durant including the big high water tower and his name would always stay on everything. Course I also ask for a little left over museum space for our Durant club museum fund I had just started with some donated money after giving him some of my rare collectibles as a gift for them to use. But I found out they rented every square inch of the floors of the old factory. Nuts. Is there restored model 60 29 Durant car still on display inside the entrance to the main factory Rick?
