Labor of love 56 years in the making
From Taft Midway Driller & Dennis McCall
Fred LaMarsna restores 150-year-old buggy over the years and now it’s on display at West Kern Oil Museum
The West Kern Oil Museum’s transportation building has a new ride thanks to a labor of love that began 56 years ago.
It was 1963 when Taft native Fred LaMarsna spotted an old buggy in a yard on Main Street and bought it for $75 intending to restore it. It’s been a long, off-and-on grind but the finished product is a beauty. And, it has a featured spot in the Museum building that is the parking spot for an assortment of antique cars, trucks and other drivable equipment.Dennis McCall, FUN WITH WOOD, kings market community, Ray Dean, Taft Midway Driller, woodworking, woodworking projects
