"Well," the boy replied, "1'11 have to go to church on Sunday anyway, and I figure it will be more fun to stand up and yeil than to sit still and listen " So.-There I was. Just relaxing in front of the TV. And. then the kids yelled, 'Hey Morn, come see the kittens.' From - Sharyn Blair STEVE HAHN was in Springfield for the Hot Rod Power Tour a few weeks ago. Over 3,500 cars and trucks were shown. Between 18,000 and " 20,000 people attended the event. The 1981 Checker Marathon (Taxi) had driven the Route of Old 66 (Los Angeles - Chicago). Just before the show, a 1962 Checker Marathon Taxi, that Lee Harvey Oswald took after President Kennedy's assassination, sold for $35,000. That taxi is now m a Rockford museum. A lot of imaginative cars were on display. Some were very unusual. During the show. AMTRAK let passengers off to get a quick chance to see cars displayed near the depot. Next up is the Route 66 Festival set for Sept. 24 - 26 in Springfield. STEVE HAHN attended the closeout auction of the Williamsville Dream Car Museum. Understand, Steve attended as a spectator. There were a variety of 66 vehicles. Moon motors built one of the interesting and cheapest cars. The chrome work on the radiator cost $1,250 to restore. The car (second from top) sold for less than the cost of that restoration. One of the highest bids paid was for a 1954 Buick Skylark convertible. It went for $75,000. Steve said the dollar amount of the auction was over $1-million. Auction Car #28 was a 1935 Lincoln Model K limousine. It has an aluminum body and has room for seven passengers. It sold for a good chunk for a car 75-years old. The bottom car is a 1930 - 1937 Ford Phaeton. It was custom built and believed to have been built for Edsel Ford. It has a local connection. It was found in a barn between Mt. Pulaski and Latham. Needing restored, it brought $19,500. Steve said he met up with neighbor Dean Horn at the auction. Steve told Dean that he could have rode over with him if he'd known he was going too. Dean replied. "You could have rode over with me. Then you could drive home in whatever car you're buying." Steve said Dean was interested in the motorcycles, but no purchase was made. Steve described the day's bidding as often intense. Mt.

After Abraham Lincoln's surprise nomination for President at the May 1860 Republican Convention in Chicago. thanks in large part to the efforts of his friends such as David Davis, the campaign swung into high gear through the summer and fall. culminating in Lin- coln's election on November 6 1860. Soon thereafter sev- eral southern states seceded from the Union. and Lincoln had hardly been inaugu- rated when hostilities broke out at Fort Sumter on April 12. 1861. thus beginning the Civil War.
