Slide Show Below!
Greetings Cruisers! A big “THANKS!” to the fifteen Cruisers that answered to last-minute call to come and hang out at the Lake Placid Arts & Crafts Show Country Fair in beautiful downtown Lake Placid at Devane Park. The weather cooperated with us and it was a great day for a Country Fair and Cars & Coffee. Honestly, we didn’t know what to expect, but everyone had a delightful time.
But the Star Car of the event was Dick & Marilyn Roddie’s 1931 V-12 Cadillac Phaeton. I think more pictures were taken of the ’31 Caddy than even Jack Murphy’s brand-new 2023 Corvette Convertible!
For many of the attendees, it was the first time they’d ever seen a top-of-the-line 1930s luxury car, let alone one with a V-12 engine! I was talking with one teenage fellow that was pie-eyed looking at the engine and said to him, “That’s a V-12 engine.” He said, “What’s that?” I responded, “Twelve cylinders.” He said, “What’s that?”
Obviously, he was not a car guy but seemed to like what he saw.

Between the cars, the crafts, all the dogs, and especially the smell of kettle corn and bratwurst (WOW!), it was a great day! Thanks to everyone that came to the show – Scott, Pete, & Ron
