Staying over night in Santa Rosa after the Steam Sawmill Tour on May 21, the Kissels exhibit Bugsby at the Brass-in-the-Grass Show. This is the second year for the show but the first time that the Kissels have participated.

Curved Dash Olds Cord big truck
There was a wide variety in the exhibits, from this early 1900s Curved Dash Oldsmobile (left), an unrestored 1937 Cord (center) and a huge truck (right).

One thing that strikes Lynn about the show is the wide diversity of the exhibits. There is an eclectic mix of cars and trucks, military vehicles, stationary engines, powered farm equipment and motorcycles. A variety of vendors includes vintage clothing. A large display of quilts are exhibited.

In addition to receiving a first-place ribbon (there were a lot of these awarded), Bugsby received a best-in-class award for the "Roaring 20s" category in which he was entered. The best-in-class awards were unique, hand built items.
