On July 9, 2013 we picked up “the big long trailer” in Cresco, Iowa and set out for Hobart Indiana. Michael Fleck, the original owner of the Michigan had lived in Hobart when the car was purchased in 1912. We had moved it there for temporary storage in a barn on Janet’s family’s farm back on September 18, 2011.
On July 11, 2013 we uncovered the Michigan, cleared out some of the mothballs placed in it to keep out the rats, racoons and possums and pushed it out of storage for loading into the trailer. In this picture (above) Kyle White helps me (Craig) push the Michigan towards the trailer.
