    Lapeer is a city in the U.S. state of Michigan and is the county seat of Lapeer County.As of the 2010 census, the city population was 8,841. Lapeer is in southern Michigan, east of Flint, on the Flint River. The name "Lapeer" is a corruption of the French la pierre, which means "the flint".
    It is a devers area with several small MFG companies in a indrustal park, cartering to the auto companies for thr most part. Many of thre residents cumute to auto plants in Detroit, and Flint and there is farming in the surrounding area.

    Many that attended the show were not new to the shows in Lapeer Monday evenings or Davison Friday evenings and other shows we have been too.

    Dad was driving one of these when he met his bride to be. 20 some years later he located this one and started the restoration of it but passaway before it was finished. Mom drove it for a bit but little things kept going bad so she told the son to sell it. He bought it from her and is slowly finishing the restoration of it.

    Beautiful Riveria where he is at now.

    Depends on who's looking for me.....and why.

    It's a European thing. They call um buses in Europe. A van would be more like a delivery type vehicle.
