Miss Thriftway U-60 Hydroplane - John Sage :: FinchHaven Digital Photography

The Miss Thriftway of Washington State is an exact scale replica of the original Miss Thriftway, built in 1954-55 and destroyed in 1957 at the Governor's Cup race in Madison, Indiana.

The still photos: from the Vashon Island Strawberry Festival Grand Parades, 2013 through 2016.

More still photos and the video: built by a group of Vashon Island hydro fans in 2003-2007, the new Miss Thriftway was put on display for one afternoon on September 11, 2015 to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the Vashon Island Thriftway store. The Allison V-12 engine was fired-up once every hour; here's the 2:00 pm fire-up.
