Pool in a Pickup

Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday takes us back to Aug. 5, 1987 edition of The Free Press, which features the S.S. Souders. Jim Souders (from left), Kathie Coose and Jim's wife Audrey were beating that summer's 100-degree heat in their portable pool. Sauders modified the bed of his Chevy S-10 and turned it into a pool. The trio got a lot of laughs from observers as they drove through Wilmington. One of the swimmers commented, "If you can't go to the beach, you may as well take the beach with you."
