“Canadian Coaster” Norm Mulloy posed beside his wife’s 1934 Desoto Airflow at the car show held by the Sorting Gap Marina yesterday afternoon. The “Coaster” explained this is an unusual car because it was a revolutionary design during the 1930s. The Mulloys are from southern Ontario and this is their first time in Fort Frances, which they’ve enjoyed so far despite the pesky mosquitoes.
