Sorry Dudes and Dudettes...

This car just struck me....

How much things have changed...

And how much things ... Have stayed the same!!!

Nice job EVERYONE!!!

Car shows really rub me the wrong way but...

I still had fun!!!... INSPITE OF ALL THE CHROME CHEVYS!!!!!!:rolleyes:

There were ... "just enough weirdos"
1. A person regarded as being very strange or eccentric.
2. A deranged, potentially dangerous person.

To keep it interesting...

Krusty Kustom"s display, comes to mind...
Primer, rust, ...... not a spec of chrome in sight!!!!(wish I had some pics of that one)

Jimmy, as much as they rub you the wrong way, it was awesome to have you there man. :thumbsup: Always a joy to B.S. with ya, ya know...

I saw that bad boy leaving after 7 when all the chrome scattered like a bunch of roaches when the lights come on. The brakes really stood out on that car.

It got quite stinky in there when everyone was leaving. The smell of raw gas and race gase was contaminated by some really horrible running cars. The yellow beatle comes to mind. He was putting down a smoke streek of burnt oil as he was leaving.

Yea, car shows kind of get to me too. I like to go to see the trends but really thats it. I hate seeing these cars and trucks with huge engines that have to be making gobs of power, and huge meats on the rear...with no rollcage and 2 miles on the odo. I hate trailer queens, I mean...showing cars is fun...but cars were menat to be driven.:flash:
