Who in the world would stay at a place where rusted vehicles were being choked by weeds?
This vehicle was a 1930 Ford Model A coupe. How did I know?
I will only say that it was a very good guess on my part — but I will never tell how I knew that information.
This vehicle was a 1926 Ford Model T touring vehicle.
Once again, I am not revealing how I know so much about historic motor vehicles.
The 1926 Ford Model T touring vehicle might just need a new set of tires — at least, according to my professional opinion as an automobile mechanic, which is a job I never had.
To say that this is a grille on which you can cook food might seem to be really far fetched…
…until one realizes that this old truck is actually used as a picnic table. I know this because I witnessed the staff of this establishment having a picnic with their family and friends. At least two dozen people must have been seated here when I first checked in to this place.
Guests at this place were permitted to drive the vehicles at any time — provided that they were willing to accept the risk — and there was no extra charge. What other lodging establishment has this service for its guests?!?
“Brian, are you crazy?” you must be wondering to yourself. “What did you do — stay the night at a junkyard?”
Well, I may be crazy — readers of The Gate probably know that by now — but no, I did not stay at a junkyard.
Quite the contrary, actually: I highly recommend staying at this place; and I would stay there again with absolutely no doubt or question whatsoever — and not because of the antique vehicles.
This is a possible reward for you if you have read the entire article and found yourself down here: the offer to spend a minimum of $80.00 on your hotel reservation booked at Booking.com and you will get $40.00 back after you complete your stay may still be available, thanks to this information which was shared by FlyerTalk member LRD:
Didn’t see this mentioned; a search didn’t return any hits. . . but, per a large display in the DFW (D) Admirals Club, you can get to the deal with the easy-to-remember link of www.booking.com/club40
(Note: I’m not suggesting the deal is still valid – just reporting what I saw.)
I tried the link for myself…
…and the green area at the bottom appeared — indicating to me that this offer is still available. Take a screen shot prior to booking your reservation as proof that this offer is still available, just in case.
